Clem Diaries: March Foodie Edition

I have said it before and I'll say it again: I do way more than I blog about. In an effort to share more of my adventures with you, I have decided to start a monthly list with links to some of the fun recipes, projects, or tutorials I've tried throughout the month. Starting with March. Hoorah!

This month has been pretty foodie-centric, so I really only have recipes to share. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have witnessed some of the action shots...

Without further adieu, in no particular order...

These brownies are delish! What is extra fantastic about them is that you can have your pantry ready at all times to whip a batch of these up. I make mine using chia seeds instead of flax for the fake egg, and they're fabulous. (I have never made a brownie I would eat... until these ones!)

I am in LOVE with this salad. I made it once exactly as per the recipe and loved it. I made homemade croutons, and served it with a fried egg and a little more avocado on the side. It is probably my new favourite go-to meal. In a pinch, I will sacrifice the homemade avocado dressing for the bottled stuff, but its worth trying it out the right way.

I really, really don't know how to function without this oatmeal to start my day. The pumpkin flavour is my favourite, though make sure you add something with a crunch or the texture will be off-putting. Pretty much any flavour combination works--the apricot is fabulous (I subbed in blood orange marmalade and it was delish).

I made this recipe with pretty much all the bells and whistles (and it looked nothing as pretty as this). It seems like a lot of steps for a) tea and b) something that tastes like a Chai latte but yellow... HOWEVER. If you are a health nut like I am, it's worth being loyal to the recipe for all the benefits of the many ingredients. It's not the taste, it's the sum of its parts that makes this one so good (and good for you!). And as far as my previous complaint is concerned: If something this good for you tastes like a Chai latte... what is there to lose?

If you do follow me on Instagram, you know that a series of ridiculous events led to me filling my freezer with soup. The recipe above was my starting point for what I've nicknamed "Mexi-Minestrone". My big adjustment was adding tomatoes, pasta shells, corn, and cumin. I also swapped out the beans for black beans... I think the nickname is justified, no?

...last but not least....

(I will eventually get around to updating old watermarks.... probably... maybe...)

I realize it isn't autumn. Trust me, I am very aware of it. However. I have been storing a full red kuri squash for months and wanted to do something lovely with it... And honestly, I only know how to do one thing with it, and that's make cozies. Check out my Instagram feed for the completely unnecessary step by step photos if you feel so inclined... :)
