Friday Food Finds (Recipe Round Up for the Weekend)

Happy Friday. Today I don’t have class until  1:30pm, so I decided to do a little searching over the blog-a-world for some awesome recipes!

Because it is Labor Day weekend, I’m going home! Which means that I get to see my family, my pets, sleep in my own bed, oh! and use an actual KITCHEN (<<<< I know what you are thinking. Where are my priorities people?)

Anywho, to make it easier on me and you, I decided to do a little Recipe Round Up to showcase my…

Here is a collective list of all the things I want to try making when I get home:

Homemade rice milk.

Pumpkin protein cookie dough.

Homemade Vegan Arctic Zero…. Fro-Yo Style! And Protein Ice Cream with awesome frosting.

More “cookie dough.”

Experiment with quinoa.

Using some of these gluten-free tips for cooking.

Make an authentic tasting OIAJ without oats, gluten, dairy, fat, chocolate chips, eggs, cinnamon…. Oh, and I want it to look like OIAJ.

Cupcake for One.

Quinoa muffin tops (Use chia egg, and replace fat and syrup with stevia + banana).

Raspberry pumpkin butter.

Buckwheat porridge and chia.

Quinoa uses, like these awesome homemade pitas!


Any recipes that have caught your eye lately? Let me know!

It’s really hard for me to find recipes that don’t need adapting, so any tips are appreciated. Here are my criteria just in case you have a recipe in mind: MUST BE egg-free, milk-free, gluten-free (no oats), peanut-free, corn-free, celery-free, tomato-free. For the time being, I am also avoiding all nuts/oil/seeds, beans, and a few fruits/veggies that cause me stomach problems.

If you find a recipe that meets some or most of that criteria, let me know! Also, if you see something SUPER AWESOME that is a great “concept” post a comment. I love experimenting in the kitchen (<<<< I finally get to say KITCHEN AGAIN!!!)

  1. LOVE all of these ideas…especially taking the strawberry pumpkin butter and trying it with raspberry. 🙂 I have been missing that since I made it the first time, and I happen to have a BUNCH of pumpkin lurking in my pantry…

    I’ve been wanting to try homemade rice or nut milks, too!

    • Thanks so much for your comment. I LOVE your blog 🙂

      Sadly the eating plan that I have to follow does not allow for strawberries, but I figured raspberries were close enough! I really hope you try it before I do… because I will most likely mess it up. Haha.

      Homemade nut milk is the best! The Healthy Foodie has a great recipe for almond milk and it is super easy. I also can’t eat nuts right now, so rice milk sounds perfect.

    • Your comment cracked me up. I guess not all acronyms ARE useful. Oh well, it will still be QIARPBJ to me. And it’s like you read my mind! Since I can’t have fats right now, a fruity butter would be perfectly awesome for an QIAJ.

      I almost made the protein ice cream today, but that would mean I would have to do it without the gums… Probably good thing I waited 🙂

  3. Oh I’m always looking for more cookie dough recipes and that pumpkin protein cookie dough looks great! And then that protein ice cream! YUM! I think I’m feeling some sort of combination of the two of them:)
