So I just really realized that I’ve been sharing some simple tasty recipes to start off the month of February. Minimal ingredients and time involved.
Not planned but when I make something I really love that’s super easy to prepare I wanna share !
Because sharing is caring..Right Guys?
And since it has been an unseasonably warm February here, it has me wanting to move more..get out and about doing things.
I’ve actually been hitting the trails…well track in my case on a more regular basis. Something I have trouble doing in the cold weather since Running is really just my mental release from it all.
Hence not allowing as much time in the kitchen. Are you guys like that?
Well if you are I hope you’ll take advantage of some of these simple recipes requiring minimal effort but not lacking a ton of flavor.
And who’d thought you could get your veggies in like this.
I’ll try to get my obsession under control here with all the cheesy goodness.
But seriously, I’d love to know what types of recipes you’d like to see more of. Just drop me a message below in the comments.
Why not save the chocolate for dessert or maybe just have a tasty cocktail to sip on.
Which would go ever so nice with these Cheesy Baked Zucchini Breadsticks.
