Happy Holidays 🙂
As much as I enjoy sharing my own healthy recipes, I love sharing recipes from other bloggers that inspire me. Even before having a blog of my own, I loved recreating recipes & sharing my favourites with friends via email, pen & paper, or Facebook.
Here’s a list of must-try recipes I’ve been pinning & printing over the holiday season.
What an easy, healthy option to have for guests to snack on before dinner. I love creamy dips & bite sized h’ors doeuvres but its nice to have some lighter fare to avoid filling up before the meal.
This is one I plan on making for Christmas dinner. I love a plate full of delicious sides but am looking forward to having a special dish to look forward to when everyone else is swooning over the turkey.
Stuffing has always been my favourite part of holiday dinner (followed by sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce & dessert of course). I’ve always been a fan of stove top but since I’ve become much more health conscious over the past year, I’m digging the homemade fare.
I needed a quick snack to take on the road for work and I wanted a change from my usual protein bar recipes. This popped up on my Facebook one day and I was sold. Festive and healthy? Count me in!
I have always loved Gina’s Amazeballs, especially the original chocolate chip, so I was super excited when she posted a holiday version. Usually these are rolled into balls, hence the name, but I love the cookie cutting option 🙂
A quick, easy & delicious way to wake up. Make this festive oatmeal cookie the night before to save some time in your busy day of shopping, wrapping & socializing 😉
Wow… wordless. I made these for our Christmas Eve treat to snack on with our egg(less) nog & holiday movies. I made a batch a week in advance and froze them…. then I made a second batch, if you know what I’m sayin 😉
I saw so many boxes of peppermint bark in the stores this season and could only wish for a vegan version. Here is the answer to my prayers! I’d like try some different modifications with nuts & dried fruit too.
I love cocktails in fancy glasses with garnish (Appletini, mom?) but I don’t love the excess sugar & calories. This year I’ll be filling our martini glasses with this light cranberry cocktail to cheers guilt-free 😉
This is a quick & easy alternative to the smoothie versions I’ve been seeing, like mine, which require blending fruit or nuts. I’m sure it would be just as delicious with almond milk & rum substitutions.
Every year at our Christmas cookie bake, there is a huge demand for rice krispie squares. These were never my favourite but I do aim to please so I have this recipe bookmarked in my Eat, Drink & Be Vegan cookbook. I think it might be a little too pricey for mass producing on cookie day but I will be keeping them in mind 😉
