I’ve been holding onto this one for almost a week now, but you have to trust me, this is goooood! I’m pretty sure this kind of sauce is only supposed to be on chicken… You know “butter chicken” right?

Let me explain where I’ve been this week… Last week I was so busy, but super excited to share some things with you this week when things calmed down.

So I decided I should finally update my ever popular Pizza Quinoa Casserole. As awesome as it is served in a larger single or double serving it is much more fun served in bite size!

I know everyone is getting into the spirit of spring but I’m still stuck on winter foods. It’s actually been strangely warm here. Usually I watch on as other bloggers enjoy spring for at least a month or two before we really start getting spring like weather but this year has been so nice. We [...]This post Vegan Butternut Mulligatawny Soup appeared first on Food Doodles. Thank you
So this was what I was holding out on you for 2 days now. I am so sorry I held these babies back because they are amazing.

Does it ever feel good to be back! I realize I’ve been gone quite a while.

Do you ever feel like you’re drowning in things to do? I have my entire week listed out but have I accomplished anything yet? OK, a couple things, but my lists are loooong.

Please tell me you’ve had spanakopita before! Ricotta cheese, feta cheese and spinach, usually all wrapped up in phyllo pastry. How can you go wrong?

How [...]This post Spanakopita Stuffed Shells appeared first on Food Doodles. Thank you for reading!
Well hello! You may have noticed I took last week off. What started the week before with us all just not feeling well turned into some awful flu or virus of some kind.

I am so glad I have some of this soup in my freezer. You see, I’m sick again. I don’t even know how, I usually get sick with a fairly mild cold once or twice a year and that’s it.

So I mentioned this spaghetti squash alfredo the other day. Along with a comment about exploding spaghetti squash. I certainly didn’t mean to scare you off from this recipe!

Smoothies are back! Even though it’s winter, and very nearly froze my face off walking my son to the bus stop this morning, I can’t get enough of smoothies.

Well, I have to start out with an apology. I have so many more cookies I want to share with you, but I think I’ll have to save them for next year.

Aren’t these such pretty little cookies? They can be really frustrating though… I’ve never had a problem with meringues until this recipe. For something so simple, a lot can go wrong.

Hello all! I hope you’re excited for more cookies! I have to be honest, I’ve wanted to post so many cookie recipes on Food Doodles, but I always kind of felt that they didn’t really fit into my area of the food blogosphere.

Next up on Cookie Week here on Food Doodles are some of my favorite cookies. I’m a sucker for chocolate cookies as it is, but chocolate and mint together is my absolute favorite.

I’ve always tried to keep Food Doodles all about the food, but in light of the events of last week I’m finding it so hard even to write about something as simple and light and easy as food.

I am in love with these muffins. A couple years ago it wouldn’t have taken very much for me to say that, but I’m a little pickier now. Most muffins are just not worth it to me anymore.

I’m so glad I finally get to share my biscotti with you! These might be pretty basic biscotti, but I love them so much.

This isn’t your average apple crisp. It’s full of tart fresh cranberries and it has a secret ingredient in the topping that makes it just a touch spicy. But not in a spicy-like-cayenne-pepper kind of way. Because that might be kind of gross.

I’ll admit, I was skeptical about this recipe. Zucchini just seems like such a wet vegetable, how could it bake up into crispy fries? But it does. And it’s awesome.
