recipe inspirations

by Lori and Michelle on June 7, 2012

We have been so busy with work that we have not had much time being creative in the kitchen.

So today we thought we would share with you some recipes that we cannot wait to make…love how you can find any type of recipe on the internet these days. There are so many great resources to get inspiration. So many talented individuals out there making amazing creations!!

Janetha’s Protein blueberry lemon scones

mmm, love starting the day with a protein packed meal.

Gena’s Lemon cornmeal blueberry pancakes

Love pancakes!

Holly’s Avocado tahini dressing

We love cheezy avocado dressings

Emily’s Vegetable Quinoa Salad with miso dressing

Love making quinoa casseroles.

Jessica’s Sweet potato quinoa cakes with blackberry salsa

Don’t these look amazing?

Love using sweet potatoes in burger recipes.

Laury’s Sweet potato white bean burger

Okay, so we love sweet potatoes.

Heather’s Chocolate Mint Cake

Sarah’s Carrot Cake

Ela’s Avocado Pie

Avocados are the best whipped and creamy like ice cream.

Twins Question: What recipes have inspired you lately? Any ingredient you would like to see recipes made out of? What is your one go to ingredient you love to base recipes around?

I WANT that sweet potato white bean burger! Haha.

Lately I have not been inspired so much by recipes as by people posting restaurant reviews and what they ate when they went out. I do it on my own time too but I love hearing about menu items because I just want to recreate them at home in a healthy way. It’s like ‘stealing’ the chef’s creativity and then healthifying it for my own purposes. It leads to discovering many more flavour combos and interesting ideas I wouldn’t have had myself!

I don’t always have a go to ingredient but I get on rolls with certain ingredients for a while. Right now I’m into avocados and popsicles though and my latest recipe reflect that!

Lori and Michelle June 7, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Yum, these all look delicious! I have so many recipes bookmarked, I just don’t have enough time to make them all (nor could I make them all because I would eat them all too!). I’m going to try out some of your carob recipes soon. I bought a tin of it in Crete and have only used it once in a smoothie. If you have any more carob recipes up your sleeve, I’d love to see them! I’m really unfamiliar with it, having never used it before, so I’m a bit hesitant with it still.
