Recipes and food posts to bookmark: August 3rd list

Gente Today, an online magazine in Spanish, has a great post with recommended foods to help with your mood. Specifically, the article discusses foods high in seratonin to help combat depression. Recommended are dairy and eggs, the reduction of white flour products, increase in dried fruits, and avoiding alcohol. 

Vida y Salud, another Spanish resource, has a good post in their healthy breakfast recipes series. The one I liked was the for a brie omelette with herbs. Sounds yummy. 

The AARP site has an article on grilling vegetables that’s a good primer for those just trying this out. It gives instructions on types of vegetables, how to cut them and how to grill them. A good place to start.

Recipes to bookmark: July 3rd list

I love food. I like to cook and I like finding new recipes to bookmark. I don’t always get around to trying out the new recipes, but they usually inspire me later. Here are some I’ve found and want to share.

I’ve decided that from now on I’m going to share my recipe finds every few weeks. If you have some you’d like to add, just comment.

There are very few things better than a really good homemade burger. I found “A Green Chile and Avocado-Mayo Burger on Memorial Day” at the Muy Beno Cookbook site. Worth a look for the July 4th cookouts.

Breakfast is my favorite meal, and I enjoy it for lunch and dinner just as easily as I do for morning food. The “Hash Brown Crusted Quiche filled with Chorizo and Jalapeños” I found at the Two Good Eggs breakfast blog looks yummy enough to actually make.

Just in case you’re looking to make your own barbecue sauce for tomorrow’s cookout, Real Simple has their “Secretly Simple Barbecue Sauce” that actually sounds… well, simple.

The “Spicy Tomato and Orange Jam” offered by Real Simple seems easy to make and delicious. I can see using it on toast with cream cheese. 

For those that read Spanish, I found a great recipe for Tabbouleh. This is one of my favorite things to eat in mediterranean food. Houston-based Gente Today has a Tabbouleh recipe posted on their site. I haven’t tried it myself, but it looks easy enough. 

Because sometimes I just want a nice meatless dish, the Roasted Vegetable Tacos at Sweet Life blog got bookmarked. They look very yummy, and the ingredient list is very simple.
