Recipes I Can't Wait to Try

Sometimes figuring out what to cook is the hardest part of any kitchen work. Once I have the idea, I can clear off counters, pull ingredients out, and get to work. Are you right there with me?

If so, then these recipe ideas are for you. I’ve put together some of the most delicious-sounding recipes I’ve collected, hoping to try this spring. Now I just need to make my grocery list and get to the store…

I’m a big fan of the expression, “Life’s short; eat dessert first.” In fact when I’m DJing a wedding and the bride and groom choose to cut their cake right after their grand entrance, I often mention that having dessert first is the best way to start out their marriage. So here we are going to start with some dessert recipes that look a-maz-ing:

Yummiest Food is the best blog name ever. With an advertisement like that in the title, these Pumpkin Cheesecake bars have to be good. Who says pumpkin has to be a fall food only?

Beignets are a French donut, and there’s a cute cafe in our town that serves them. I’ve always been curious to try them at home myself, and I found the perfect recipe for it the other day!

My kids will be thrilled when I finally get around to making these s’mores in a bag for dessert! I was thinking it would be a great way to bring s’mores inside before summer hits and s’mores outside are an option again.

Dinner Recipes I Can’t Wait to Try

Mexican Street Corn Salad is really a side, but every dinner needs a few sides. This recipe from Shugary Sweets sounds delish.

I’d love to get going on these Parmesan Roasties today. Potatoes are a huge comfort food for me, and these promise to be full of flavor and coziness for a night in.

Taco Bell no longer has the market on crunchwraps if you can pull off Miguel’s Cooking with Fire recipe to make your own. These look so good!

Soup for A Cold Spring

Winter is basically over, but that doesn’t mean cold weather is gone for good. One of the best ways to endure the frigid winds of spring is a hearty soup, like these:

Pioneer Woman always has great ideas, but this hamburger soup recipe is one I can’t wait to get started on in my own kitchen.

This alternative to noodle soup sounds drool-worthy, and it’s also easy if you have some turkey leftover from an Easter dinner or some chicken left from a rotisserie chicken dinner (hello, easy grocery store dinner solutions). Can’t wait to try Turkey Wild Rice soup from Taste of Home!

Not a lot of people are mushroom fans, but if you are, this Hungarian Mushroom Soup promises to be a perfect way to invite everyone to the dinner table on a cold night.

Breakfast and Snack

Any adventurous mom knows that breakfast foods aren’t always typical (hello, leftover spaghetti at 8am) and typical breakfast foods make for good snacking later. Use these for whatever meal or midday break you choose, and may they sustain you through tantrums and adventures alike.

Here are some banana oatmeal jam muffins from Drizzle Me Skinny that look perfect for moms and kiddos both. If you’re thinking ahead to spring break, these might be a great one to bake at home on an afternoon at home when cabin fever strikes.

Half Baked Harvest is one of my favorite food blogs, and she has these Cinnamon Blueberry bars I’ve been wanting to try forever. One of these days I need to make time to try them! If you get to it first, please let me know in the comments how they turn out!

Who has ever heard of hot buttered cheerios before? But seriously, these sound sooo good and they look like a very kid-friendly snack.

A Kitchen Full of Yum

It seems like there’s never enough time to try all the recipes I find that sound delicious. If you use some of the ones I’ve listed here, please let me know how they go! Hopefully I can make time to try a few, too.
