Savory Pumpkin Puffs

Date Attempted: 10/29/16

Recipe Number: 39

Disclaimer: these do not have any actual pumpkin in them. My roommate and I decided to host a potluck and pumpkin carving afternoon on Saturday in order to prepare for Halloween. Roommate was making vegan chili and cornbread so I decided to make something non-vegan but still great. When my mom was visiting (hi mom!) she found this recipe for me and it was pretty easy to make, even for someone who’s never used puff pastry before.

Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts

Recipe Number: 25

Date Attempted: 8/24/16

Brussels sprouts are probably my favorite vegetable and whenever I make these sprouts they’re gone before I can even bring some to work the next day. For this reason, I don’t have any pictures of my own (and honestly they look no where near as good as these from food 52) I’ve made this recipe a million and a half times, sometimes adding some other things to it so I’ve included this in the recipe below.

Apricot Greek Yogurt Scones

Date Attempted: 8/7/16

Recipe Number: 23

I love grab and go breakfasts, I especially love grab and go breakfasts when they incorporate fruit. Apricots are one of my favorites so I thought I’d make this treat for breakfast this week. I think that they are sweet enough without the glaze so I didn’t even make that and I’ve been loving on them with some goat cheese and basil in the mornings.

They look kind of like strange shaped sickly scones but I promise they tasted amazing.
