Coconut Pancakes

I was SO lucky these past few weeks because I got to spend them with Q! He had a little break from work, and I took some vacation days so that we could spend time with each other before Q heads out for more training. I found my love of the kitchen again, and remembered how much I LOVE cooking for another person (amazing how cooking for two is SO much better than cooking for one!). For Valentine’s Day, I wanted to try a new recipe, so I made these Coconut Pancakes. It made a bunch (I actually cut this recipe in half since it was two of us and there was still a ton left over!). I put them in a freezer ziploc bag and freeze them for the future. They were delicious and really not that much work, who knew? Enjoy!

Easy Stovetop Spanish Rice

The other night I wanted to make a fun Mexican-themed dinner. Instead of doing my usual brown rice on the side, I decided to try and make some Spanish rice. This recipe is easy, delicious and tastes super authentic. I put it on the stovetop the same time I made my fajita chicken (recipe to come) and it was a delicious meal.

A few hints: this makes a LOT of rice (like 4 cups), which you can easily portion out and freeze or make for a small crowd. Also, I used brown basmati rice because that’s what I had. Feel free to play around with what type of rice you want to use, just be mindful of liquid to rice ratio and cooking time.

Cranberry Bliss Bars

Around this time of year I always get excited for my favorite treat at Starbucks: Cranberry Bliss Bars! A few years ago, I attempted to make them at home and remember loving the, so this weekend while I was in TN, I tried again!

They are actually super simple to make. The white chocolate “drizzle” is more challenging since the chocolate seizes up pretty quickly, but I did more “dallop” than “drizzle” haha! These are a huge hit, and if you cut them into little triangles, no one will know the Starbucks version versus yours!
