Why oh why has it been so very long since I've done of these posts? As a blogger, I always think it's so fun to see what recipes other people are making (and loving!). Though I mostly cook my own recipes and throw random things together (ahem, eggs and avocado toast), I do make other blogger's recipes quite often! I follow a shiz ton of blogs on Bloglovin' so it can be pretty overwhelming to pick and choose--but that's all part of the fun!
Do you use Bloglovin'? I'm mildly obsessed. It's basically a little feed of all the blogs you follow so you can lay in bed every morning and scroll through a snapchot of everyone's blog posts instead of getting up like you should. I have the app (it's free), so it's my bedtime reading too. It's a surefire way to never miss your favorite bloggers' new material. How else would I keep up with the bajillion blogs I follow?

Here are a few recipes that I've made lately and totally adored!
1. Banana Chia Bites from Running to the Kitchen
This girl knows her stuff. I was full on obsessed with these chocolate chip cookies for quite some time. I'd had my eye on these bites ever since she posted them a while back but held off from making them due to my lack of a mini muffin tin. Welp, snagging a twelve dollar one from Bed, Bath and Beyond solved that problem! I adore these because they're sweetened exclusively with an overripe banana, making them the perfect mid-day snack that won't cause a big spike in your blood sugar. They're made with almond meal and coconut flour too, meaning they pack quite the protein punch. Love 'em! Oh and don't skip the pecans. Dare I say that I may add chocolate chips next time?
2. Crave-Worthy Sesame Carrot Noodles from Clean Wellness
This recipe was SOOOO awesome and versatile. The flavor profile was pretty different than anything I've had recently, which I loved. I made the dressing exactly as written but I changed the rest of the recipe based on what I had on hand. First, I used 4oz whole wheat pasta instead of her 8oz brown rice pasta. Then I used my new julienne peeler to make a bunch of carrot "noodles" so I wasn't eating a bunch of pasta. I didn't have asparagus, so I added steamed snap peas, edamame and a bunch of fresh spinach instead. The fresh mint was what I loved most about this recipe. You can pack SO many veggies in this dish, especially since the dressing itself has two big carrots in it. Definitely don't skip the mint! I'm actually eating these while I write this post--seriously! I love them cold right out of the fridge.
3) Jamaican Chickpea Stew from The Roasted Root
I'm actually legit friends with Julia so I always try to make her recipes since I love her so freaking much. They never disappoint! This is super, super easy to make and I love the allspice in it. I never use allspice, so it was totally refreshing to have some new flavors going on besides curry! The leftovers taste amazing, too. I didn't even serve it over rice. Straight up, baby!
4) Kale, Strawberry & Avocado Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing from Two Peas and Their Pod
This salad will totally make you fall in lurve with my good friend kale! I ate this in like two sittings instead of four. Story of my life. I mean you really can't go wrong with strawberries and avocado, amiright? I had extra poppyseeds from my flourless lemon poppyseed mini muffins so I figured this would be a fabulous way to use them up. Aaaaand everything's betta with feta.
Tell me--what have you made lately that you love?
