weekly foodie finds {27.01.2013}

January 27, 2013

I haven’t done one of these in ages due to lack of time to properly search the web but these last couple of weeks the blogosphere was full of delicious eats. Below you’ll find some of my favorite finds. If you’re having a hard time deciding what you could cook for dinner use this is as inspiration Smile 

Dinner doesn’t always have to be super-fancy. Sometimes simple things are a far more satisfying option than any meal that requires you standing in the kitchen for hours. An example are these Bacon Blue Cheeseburger Potato Skins {by How Sweet It Is}. I would serve them just like they are with a simple side salad.

I saw that Jenna posted this recipe for Kale and Three Cheese Calzones {from Eat Live Run} earlier this week and all I could think about for the remainder of the week was Italian food. Fortunately I had dinner at an Italian restaurant Friday night and naturally I opted for calzone. The next time a craving hits me I’ll make them myself. These look divine and just look at that crust!

I read every single post that Laurie writes. I love her step-by-step instructions and her pictures are amazing. All her recipes have a very creative twist and that outside-of-the-box-thinking is something that I truly appreciate. This recipe for White Chicken and Cheese Lasagne {from Simply Scratch} is just one example of how to turn a classic dish into a fun alternative.


Almond milk is a huge hit right now, unfortunately not so in Germany. My sister told me that Almond Breeze became available last year in England {something that I am very much looking forward to}. In Germany 1 liter of almond milk would cost me 4 euros which I find too pricey. So when Angela posted the recipe for Home-made Almond Milk {fom Oh She Glows} I got super excited! This is definitely a recipe that I will try out very soon. As someone who is lactose-intolerant I am always on the lookout for dairy-free alternatives and I know that this will be a great option for me.

I can’t even say how much I adore Marla’s blog. I’ve been following her blog for quite some time now and her photography is just beautiful. Her recipes are all healthy, yet indulgent. If there’s one person you need to follow on pinterest it’s Marla. She’ll have you covered with whatever you’re looking for. This is one of my latest favorites from here blog: Pasta with Spinach, Pancetta and Pomegranate {from Family Fresh Cooking}.

I discovered the blog and subsequently the recipe for Butternut Squash and Farro with Honey Harissa Dressing {from Happyolks} via pinterest. There’s something so beautiful about the images on Kelsey and Shaun’s blog and if you don’t know it yet I urge you to check it out right now!

And if you want something for dessert after all those delicious eats I highly suggest you try making these Toasted Hazelnut Flourless Brownies {from London Bakes}. I am a huge fan of Kathryn’s blog and I know whatever she creates will become a huge hit. Just look at how fudgy and moist these brownies look. I am sure these will taste particularly good slightly warmed, with a cup of tea after a long day at work.

There you have it. 5 weeknight mains that you can throw together after coming home from work, 1 drink suggestion and of course dessert.

    I saw the almond milk too and pinned it for future use. I buy it now from the store and its ridiculously expensive.
    All of these pictures are gorgeous and making me hungry. I love foodie finds on the Internet.

      I always thought almond milk was more affordable in the US, but apparently I was wrong. But by now I’m sort of used to the fact that healthy food is expensive whereas unhealthy options are cheaper.
