recipes on my mind

// cornbread donuts + coconut glaze //

Summer is for salads. I mean, I love salads all year, but the abundance of fruits and veggies that are available in season during the summer, make salads even more fun. I made the two salads above from Joann Eats Well with Others this week. The kale salad, was super refreshing with the peaches and corn. And, kale always holds up to lots of flavors. I forgot to get goat cheese, though, so I put feta on mine instead. I also skipped the croutons, but put the parmesan on the salad.

For the tortellini salad, I skipped the the tortellini and instead went with some of Cappello's almond flour based (gluten and grain free) fettuccine. Pasta doesn't leave me feeling too hot, so that's why I opted for something else than traditional.

I haven't made these cornbread donuts yet, but I hope to this weekend. I will likely make them as muffins and maybe even skip the glaze. They will be quick and easy then; and I am hoping Raffa will eat them too.
