2 Dinners & 1 Breakfast & 2 Desserts

From time to time I make a dish and want to blog it but don't. 
These are recipes that I made and loved, but didn't get around to making a full blog post, whether it be because I forgot, didn't take enough pictures or just wanted to eat because I was hungry.   ;)
Paella.  This is the first time I've ever made it and it was delicious! I kept it less expensive by just using shrimp and some spicy turkey sausage, leaving out the rest of the usual chicken and seafood.


Red Lentil Chili.  I saw Mario Batali make this recipe on The Chew.  I added mushrooms instead of corn and preferred this to meat chili.  (not a big fan of ground meat here)


Amazing breakfast - strawberry stuffed pancakes. Basically just pancakes stacked with strawberries and a filling of marscapone cheese and whipped cream.

Easiest dessert to make ever.   Kiwi Strawberry Yogurt Pie
One container of Cool Whip, 2 individual servings of flavoured yogurt.  Mix together, pour into a graham pie crust, top with fruit, chill until set and serve.  It's light and can even be good for diabetic diets.

Coconut Banana Bread.  Adding one little thing can make a traditional recipe kick ass.

  1. Ohh, those all look ridiculous. I like how you swapped corn for mushrooms. I adore mushrooms. And that amazing breakfast is making me want to cook some of that up, except with blueberries since that's all I got.

    Mmm ...
