Friday Faves // 06

Written by , Posted in Friday Faves

FRIDAY FAVES ARE BACK!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I have missed posting my favourite pins of the week, it’s just so fun staring at mouth-watering-sticky-sweet-delicious-salty-healthy-whatevery foodie pics on a Friday afternoon! So I will be making a concerted effort to post weekly re-capping my best pins from Pinterest from the previous week. Cause. You know. My pass time between 9:15 and 9:30pm to wind down before sleepy time is to pin the heck out of my Pinterest feed – till the point that my phone is scaldingly hot and my face has a screen-tan. It’s a thing. I swear.

Anyway – to recap, this is not a paleo / health post, this is an anything and everything delicious post. I put up something sweet; something savoury; something gluten-free; healthy (which is neither paleo nor gluten-free necessarily but health orientated) and, of course, something paleo! :) Enjoy…

SWEET STUFF:

I always start with the sweet stuff. My sweet tooth is generally pretty dormant, but when it stirs… the craving is volcanic. And let me tell you there is NOTHING I love more than a good crème brûlée. GOOD GRACIOUS. Unfortunately, since I can’t intake any dairy without clogging up all snot-nosed and stuffy, getting a major headache and an upset tummy.. well.. no crème brûlée for me. However – I recommend LOTS of crème brûlée for YOU!!! *jealous* This recipe (in case you hadn’t picked up by now) is for an ENTIRE TART. A whole tart’s worth of the creamy, delicious, vanilla goodness. The site – Chili & Tonka – is Polish, but that’s what Google translate is for! :) Check out the crème brûlée tart here.

SAVOURY:

Lasagne is the bestest kind of Italian food in the world. Maybe the bestest kind of any food in the world. This one is a vegetarian Spring Vegetable Lasagne, and it looks DELICIOUS. Make it. If you are so inclined. Thanks Hortus Cuisine :)

HEALTH CORNER:

Half Baked Harvest is one of my favourite blogs. There is a clear slant towards healthier choices, and so much variety in their recipes. Just LOVE. Today I’m linking you to their Simple Summertime Basil Chicken Curry with Coconut Ginger-Lime Rice recipe. It looks so good. And for an even healthier choice – have it with Wild Rice or Quinoa!

GLUTEN-FREE:

I find with going gluten-free one of the bigger obstacles is to have a nice variety in your breakfast. This is to help you mix it up :) Kenko Kitchen brings you Ginger & Date Crunchy GF Granola!

PALEO:

Since I last posted Friday Faves it seems that the Paleo craze has exploded even further. The recipes around these days are just mind-blowing. There is so much to choose from, and so many options to replace sweet things and favourite meals.. it’s really awesome!! As I have mentioned before, I don’t follow Paleo 100%, but I am still a pretty dedicated ambassador for the principles. This recipe is one to replace your regular weekend treat (DONUTS) with a healthier option. The Roost blog (beauuuuuuutiful pics) makes Cinnamon Roll, Almond Flour Donuts. To. Die. For.

And that’s a wrap for today!! 
Happy Friday! ^_^
