Garlic Edamame.

One snack that I always have in my freezer is bag of edamame. They are super tasty on their own and provide a lot of extra protein. My friend Aya jazzed these guys up pretty quickly and they were so delicious. Check out what she did!

These were so simple to make and such a great side to our freshly made sushi!

Slow Cookin’

Lately I’ve been making more and more meals since I have moved into my new apartment. And about 75% of those meals have involved a slow cooker. Here’s a great and super simple recipe for a delicious vegetable yellow curry.

Slow Cooker(What you need: coconut milk, garbanzo beans, curry powder, tofu, two cups of chopped vegetables, and cayenne pepper)

Slow Cooker(Add in all of your chopped vegetables)

Slow Cooker(Top with garbanzo beans and cubed tofu)

Slow Cooker(Add in 28 oz. of coconut milk, 4 tablespoons of curry powder, and cayenne pepper to taste)

Slow Cooker(Place the lid on your slow cooker, cook on high for 4 hours or low for 2. Serve over cooked rice or couscous)

This is the tastiest meal I have made in the slow cooker to date!

Homemade French Crepes.

This weekend I made one of the most delicious and easiest recipes for breakfast: French Crepes! Honestly, you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already so you should give it a try. And if I can do it, so can you!

(You will need: 1 cup of flour, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, a half cup of milk, and a pinch of salt. The filling can consist of your favorite fruits and jams or my favorite, Nutella!)

(Pour the batter in a lightly buttered pan over medium high heat in quarter cup increments. The thinner the pour, the better)

(Fold in half and serve when warm)

You can also get creative for breakfast and scramble eggs with cheese and serve in your crepe. For dinner, I have made Pesto Parmesan Chicken crepes. It’s one of the simplest things to cook and it always impresses people because it looks fancier than it is. These crepes take literally 2 minutes and 30 seconds to cook, it doesn’t get better than that!
