Indulging in Comfort Food Guilt-Free
September 1st, 2017
I have several great loves in my life and eating is one of them. When I was younger, I would sometimes feel guilty about indulging my culinary cravings. I guess getting older has its perks, because now I am perfectly at ease with my gluttony and enjoying it in my own special way!!
To celebrate this key observation, here are my current “welcomed cravings”. Since going to the gym 3 times a week + green kale smoothies are not my thing at all and I’m fine with that!!!
Warning: you should know that melted cheese is one of my main reasons for living ;)
1 - Rolled Lasagna with Squash, Ricotta and Spinach
OK, I’m not a vegetarian, BUT I made that recipe twice already, it’s so YUM! Trois fois par jour is an endless source of inspiration for me. And, I must say that I have a similar background to Marilou’s when it comes to eating, I haven’t always been at peace with food. So, this lasagna, alongside a tossed green salad and light dessert, per-fecto!
2 - Chicken and Cauliflower Mac’n Cheese
I told you I really liked things au gratin!! And, for me, the ultimate comfort food is obviously mac’n cheese. Plus, there’s a vegetable in the recipe, so it’s actually pretty balanced! :)
3 - Whoopie Pies
WOOP WOOP, whoopie pies, I can’t get enough of these! They’re soft and comforting, and even though I don’t have any kids yet, I looooove recipes from Cuisine futée parents pressés.
4 - Peanut Butter and Bacon Cookies
Yup, sweet & salty cookies with bacon inside! I make these often when friends come for dinner, and they are always impressed, trust me!
What is your FAVE recipe these days? The foodie in me wants to know EVERYTHING ;)
