And just like that we’re done with January, shimmying into the groove of things. For winter’s sake, I’d love to say we’re “skating into the groove of things” but it’s unseasonably warm right now and the rinks are slushy. It’s still soup weather though!
Speaking of warm meals, I made a whole bunch of delicious recipes from some of my favorite food bloggers in January. I tried (and loved!):
Greek Goddess Grain Bowl with Fried Halloumi by Half Baked Harvest (pictured below)
Spanokopita Quiche with Phyllo Crust by Yummy Mummy Kitchen
Spicy Peanut Stew with Butternut Squash and Chickpeas by Oh, Ladycakes
Twix Thumbprint Cookies by Cooking Classy
Stovetop Goat Cheese Shells and Cheese by How Sweet Eats

I love cooking from food blogs. It’s one of the reasons I started blogging in the first place! So, when I stumble upon new bloggers I am always more than happy to add them to my list of daily reads. Recently I’ve discovered two new blogs (that I think you would love too)!
YOU’VE GOT TO CHECK OUT:
1. Kale & Caramel. I actually discovered this blog a few months ago, but haven’t had the chance to tell you about it yet. Here you can find healthy recipes made with local ingredients that Lily whips up and photographs beautifully. I’m currently crushing HARD on these Greek Yogurt Polenta Bowls with Broccoli Rabe. Such a unique recipe!

And the favorite recipe that I made? Definitely my Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls. They are out of this world amazing.
OTHER JANUARY THINGS
I’m currently reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. I’d love to elaborate more on it, but I just started! So far it’s a story about two sisters stuck in German occupied France during WW2. I’m a sucker for these stories.
I have way more to say about movies though. WHOA! I’ve seen all of the Academy Award Nominations for Best Picture and legitimately LOVED each movie!! Brooklyn was one of the best love stories that I’ve seen in a long time but my personal fav was probably either Spotlight or The Revenant. Have you seen them all?
Lastly, I’ve been cooking my way though the Minimalist Baker “31 Meals Cookbook“. It is AMAZING! I can’t wait for the actual hard copy of Dana’s to come out this year. She is SO creative!
That’s all for this month folks! I’ll be back with a fresh new recipe on Tuesday.
