Farfalle with Sun-Dried Tomato and Scallion Cream

Almost every Sunday night, my boyfriend and I have pasta for dinner. We typically just have spaghetti or rigatoni with meat sauce. I make the sauce in huge batches and freeze it for later use. Last weekend, I didn’t realize we had used up the last of our sauce until Sunday afternoon! So we needed a quick pasta recipe that we could use instead. (Don’t worry, I made more sauce this weekend so we are safe for the next few weeks!) This recipe from Food and Wine uses sun-dried tomatoes to make a quick and simple no-cook sauce. The meal was done in under 30 minutes!   Ingredients: 5 scallions, white and light-green parts only 12 sun-dried tomato halves 1 cup half-and-half 1¬† box (1 pound) bow tie/farfalle pasta 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon fresh oregano

Blueberry Breakfast Bars

I have a coworker who absolutely loves blueberries. She is retiring this week, and I wanted to make her a blueberry treat before she left. I adapted this recipe for Blueberry Breakfast Bars on The Kitchn, with the original recipe coming from the Whole Grain Mornings cookbook by Megan Gordon. My version uses quite a bit of substitutes and including using sprouted spelt flour instead of whole wheat flour because I could not find my whole wheat flour when I went to make these (I guess I need to clean out my pantry!) I also have more blueberry filling in my version, and used a different sized pan. Be sure to check out the original version on the kitchn to see if you prefer their method! Ingredients: Blueberry filling: 4 cups fresh blueberries, divided 1/4 cup natural cane sugar 3 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract the juice and zest of 1 lemon 1 tablespoon water Crust: 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup original wheat germ 3/4 cup sliced raw almonds 1/4 cup raw sesame seeds 1 cup sprouted spelt flour¬†(or whole wheat flour) 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon kosher salt … Continue reading
