Do you have any recipe staples?
Here at home, Mark and I freakin’ love my Thai Peanut Burrito Bowls. The dressing is nearly drinkable. Just a few months ago, we were having this quick and easy dinner at least twice a week. We made it for his family, I made it for my parents – it’s seriously so much yum.
And I can’t go to a party without bringing brownies from Sally at Sally’s Baking Addiction. I make the recipe from her first cookbook for my brother’s graduation party and everyone flipped. Like, absolutely nuts. Now it’s a constant request whenever I’m invited pretty much anywhere.
And when I go to my parents’ house, there’s one dish I will always ask for: Cookie and Kate’s Quinoa Broccoli Slaw. It’s a crowd-pleaser for everyone – my not-so-keen-on-quinoa brother even loves it! We’ve made large batches for parties, smaller batches for holidays with the fam, and giant batches for…well, me to take back to my apartment ?
And because I’m me and I can’t leave a recipe alone, I’ve made some changes that make an already great recipe…even greater. My version is so quick and easy, and it’s a 30-minute meal that’ll leave you totally satisfied…with leftovers to spare for tomorrow’s work lunch! It’s one of those throw-everything-into-a-bowl-and-call-it-one-of-the-most-delicious-meals-you’ve-ever-had type of dishes, so it’s simple enough to have in your back pocket for any busy weeknight. Man, oh man. I have seriously found my new favorite everything in this Roasted Broccoli Quinoa Salad!
