Our 5 Favorite Recipes of All Time

To celebrate this nomination, we would like to share with you our top five favorite recipes from this blog.
These recipes are our tried-and-true favorites among the many we’ve posted here.  We’ve been talking about doing this for quite some time because when we ask each other “What are you having for dinner today?” or “What did you have for breakfast?” (and apparently we talk about what we’re going to eat or what we just ate A LOT!), we find ourselves mentioning a few favorites over and over.  So, without further ado, here they are:

Oven-Puffed Pancake with Berries

A weekend brunch favorite.  This recipe is a favorite because we pretty much always have the ingredients on hand, it’s very easy to whip up, and it looks impressively gorgeous.  An all around winner!  I even make this for dinner sometimes.  This horrifies Dulcie, but hey – who can say no to this pancake?

Spring Herb Quinoa Patties

These are a lunchtime staple for both Dulcie and I.  If you’ve got leftover quinoa and an egg, you’ve got the basics required to make these delicious crisp little patties.  They’re wholesome and filling, amenable to any herbs or cheese you have on hand, and are even a hit with the toddler crowd.

Homemade Granola

We both love this granola recipe because it’s the type of thing that is simple to make, lasts a long time in the pantry for whenever you’d like to snack on it, and the final result tastes so much better than anything you can buy.  Coconut oil & honey are the delicious base.  Add the nuts, seeds, and fruit that you love to make this perfectly customized for your tastes.  Dulcie has discovered that millet is a delicious crunchy addition.  I’m partial to a blend of sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds!

Ginger Gold Rush Cocktail

This cocktail is sweet and spicy, a perfect combination of bourbon, ginger liqueur, and lemon. Its simplicity lets the pure ingredients shine, which is something we always love in a recipe (cocktail or otherwise!).  This drink comes together easily enough to serve at dinner parties and we get compliments on it every time it is served.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

This is a staple for any potluck or picnic style event.  It taste great warm or cold, transports easily, and is always a big hit.  This is a special quinoa salad because it’s packed with flavor thanks to all the fresh herbs (almost anything green and fresh will work its magic here) as well as the garlic, feta, and olives.  Oh and the cheese can be easily omitted for a vegan dish, which is sometimes required.  Especially here in Boulder, CO!

  1. Voted! I'm excited for you ladies. Good luck!

  2. Congratulations! How about a round of oven-puffed pancakes to celebrate? I'll bring the syrup!

    Or a cocktail. Cocktails are probably the more obvious choice. You know what, why not both?

  3. Yay, congratulations on the nomination! I'm heading over to vote for you now. And hint hint, another blogger you might know (*cough*me*cough*) was nominated for the Healthy Cooking category... ;)
