Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Rolls

In the original recipe they put a glaze on these and I was about to make one but decided to try one without it and I have to say, they don’t need it at all. These rolls are gooey and spicy and apple-y. I kind of cheated by freezing some local apple slices at the height of apple season to use but probably regular good quality apples will produce something really delicious.

Menu: Gentle and Respectable

Here’s my menu for this week. I usually make all or almost all of everything listed on a given menu though I tend to eat things out of order (sometimes you’re just not in the mood for something or you don’t want to cook a complex dish on the weekend like you thought you would). You can always see the food I actually made on Friday when I post my weekly lunch compilation on @mabmadefood. As usual this menu only has lunches and dinners because we always eat the same breakfast.

Recipe: Focaccia Pizza

If you’re stuck in a rut of pizzas this is a great way to change things up a little. It’s still very low effort and requires just 10 minutes and the knowledge that you’re going to have pizza that night. This pizza comes out of chewy and flaky. Make sure you don’t put too many toppings on, one or two is the maximum it can hold (and make sure they’re cooked or dry because too much water will make the pizza soggy). Because there are so few ingredients make sure you salt your dough well and season your sauce if you want something out of this world.

Recipe: Pupusa

I’ve never actually had a pupusa so I wasn’t really sure how to make these or what they should be like but it did take me two or three tries to figure out how wet the dough should be, how they should be filled, and so on so don’t get too discouraged if your first batch comes out a little interesting – they should still be delicious. This is just a great and quick way to deliver flavor to your mouth and it pairs really well with all types of salsas/sauces and you can fill with almost anything making it really versatile as a starting point recipe.

Recipe: Tofu-Bean Meatballs

I don’t eat most meat (just birds and fish) so I’ve never been one of those people who is trying to make exact replicas of meat but I just wanted to find a recipe that made sturdier “meat” balls because they’re just such a useful food and these fit the bill. Just make sure that your tofu and beans are both really wrung out and that everything is mixed well together and these will come out with a texture that is only slightly more delicate than a regular meatball. They also taste pretty much like meatloaf which is a great plus in my book too!
