10 Delicious Recipes to Make While Self-Isolated
Because of self-isolation, a lot of us are cooking at home more! I love to bake and cook, so I'm actually having some fun with it. Today, I've compiled a list of recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for you to try! I've made them all (sometimes several times) and I can guarantee that they are amazing. I hope you enjoy these easy recipes for every time of the day!
Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Muffins
These muffins are delicious! The recipe is from one of my favorite bloggers, Stuck on Sweet, and modeled after those muffins you get at a bakery or coffee shop. They're big and mouthwatering, with melty chocolate chips and toasted sugar on top. They're perfect for breakfast or a snack anytime during the day!
Apple Pie Chia Smoothie
This smoothie is one of my favorites! It tastes exactly like an apple pie. It contains plenty of chia seeds, which are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and quality protein. The combination of chia seeds, apple, and spices create a filling, yummy smoothie that's not to be missed!
Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffins
Can you get any better than coffee cake muffins in the morning? These muffins are soft and delectable, with crumbly cinnamon streusel topping. Better yet, they've got a cinnamon swirl in the middle! Trust me, you don't want to miss these coffee cake muffins.
Lemon Arugula Salad with Couscous, Cucumbers, and Feta
This Meditteranean salad is complete with couscous, cucumbers, feta, and basil-lemon dressing. It's delicious and will please even the pickiest salad eater! Although the recipe calls for arugula, I substituted with a couple ounces more of spring greens for a lighter taste. It's also filling enough to use as a main dish!
Rainbow Fruit Salad with Citrus Honey Dressing
Tired of greens? This salad has your back. It's complete with fresh pineapple, mango, peach, nectarine, and berries, and topped with citrus-honey dresses and mint leaves. Colorful and sweet, this is the perfect salad for spring!
Copycat Olive Garden Gnocchi Soup
This version modeled after Olive Garden's creamy soup is perfect for rainy spring blues. With veggies, soft gnocchi (Italian potato dumplings), broth, and chicken, this soup is warm and comforting.
Another one of my favorite (and Italian) soups, you need this Italian wedding soup in your life! With fresh herbs, chicken meatballs, spinach, veggies, and broth, this soup is piping hot and homey. There's a reason they call it wedding soup...it could feed a whole wedding party! It made one or two meals of leftovers for our family of five, but I didn't get tired of it, it was so good.
This is one of my all-time favorite desserts! This skillet pie has a graham cracker crust, awesome cookie dough filling, and toasted marshmallows at top. Basically, it's a campfire in a pan!
Who says you need fall for pumpkin? I certainly don't! You may balk at the idea of changing a snickerdoodle recipe, but this one is most definitely worth it. The mix of cinnamon and pumpkin results in a cozy and completely addictive pumpkin snickerdoodle bar!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars
This dessert is simple but obsess-worthy, with layers of sweet cheesecake and chocolate chip cookie dough. They're the perfect late-night treat, with gooey chocolate and creamy cheesecake.
