{Link Love} Recipes I Can’t Wait to Make


My plan was to post a new recipe this week for a miso soup I can’t get enough of recently, but I got sucked into the time warp that is RSS feeds (make sure to update yours!), email subscriptions, and removing a social media plugin that apparently contained malware. I always think these things are going to to take way less time than they do, and before I know it, it’s 4pm, the dogs are going stir-crazy, I have to jump on a conference call, and I end up eating trail mix for lunch.

In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share a few recipes that I’m really excited to try. Fortunately, like my own recipes, these tend to be relatively quick and doable even on busy weekdays.

Keepin’ It Kind’s Sweet & Sour Cauliflower with Pineapple. I love meals that have that irresistible sweet/savory thing going on, and I have a feeling this is going to make for some really good leftovers for lunches the following day.

Choosing Raw’s Mango Lassi. This creamy, frozen drink sounds particularly good now that the weather is finally warming up. I bought some frozen pineapple to make the sweet and sour cauliflower, so I think a pineapple lassi is in order later this afternoon.

The Vegan Chickpea’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cupcakes. I mean, do I even need to tell you why I want to make these? Chocolate? Peanut butter? Ice cream? Cupcakes? Happiness overload.

Oh She Glow’s Golden Beet Salad with Shallots, Parsley & Orange Miso Dressing. This is my kind of meal – lots of different flavors and textures, light yet filling, and all tossed in a bright citrus dressing. It doesn’t hurt that this salad is seriously gorgeous to look at.

A Dash of Compassion’s Socca with Kale Pesto. Can you believe I’ve never tried socca? I think I’ve been missing out. Fortunately, I have a brand new bag of chickpea flour that’s destined for this recipe. And you all know how excited I get about kale.

Oatmeal with a Fork’s Thick, Raw Lemon Bars. Lauren – you had me at lemon. I love that these bars are made from whole foods and minimal sugar. I also think I have all of the ingredients already (and you probably do too).

What recipes are you most excited to make? Share the link love!

    1. Amanda says

      Of course! 🙂 I’m thinking I’m going to want to put that sweet and sour sauce on everything – it sounds so good!

  2. Kristy says

    Awww! Thank you, Amanda! This is a pretty great list- I’m waiting for the perfect occasion to make Caitlin’s cupcakes. I’m afraid if I make them for just Chris and I’ll eat them all in one go! Angela’s salad looks pretty enticing too… And I can’t wait to hear how you like socca- it’s so easy and delicious. 🙂

    1. Amanda says

      I agree about the cupcakes! They will tempt me all day.

  3. yummy links – i could take that lassi and socca right now 🙂 I have a tub of miso soup i need to use soon- hope you will find time to post your recipe

    1. Amanda says

      The miso soup is made (hooray!) – hoping to photograph it tonight!

  4. Lauren says

    Thanks so much for mentioning me girl! I was just thinking about you the other day, so it’s cool to ‘hear’ from you! 🙂

    1. Amanda says

      I just realized I don’t have enough lemons (bummer!), but I have a bunch of limes. Raw lime bars?!

      1. Lauren says

        Haha! Do it girl! I just hope you like them! 🙂

  5. Those lemon bars sound AMAZING right now.

  6. Wasn’t that plugin debacle so much fun!? (A whole lot of sarcasm there) awesome link love post..I NEED those lemon bars!

    1. Amanda says

      The plugin issue was like the icing on the cake after I spent hours trying to figure out feedblitz and mailchimp. I still haven’t replaced it either. Did you find another plugin, or did you create your own social media links? This stuff is my least favorite aspect of blogging.

      1. After that, I didn’t want to use a plugin anymore (I’m really trying to limit my use of them anyway) so I bought a package of social media icons for $5 off etsy and coded them into a widget that way.

        These are two other plugins that do the same thing though:

      2. Amanda says

        You are so smart. 🙂 I’m thinking I should code my own to avoid another potential headache, but for now, I’ll check out the plugins. Thank you!!

  7. Ooh, your list looks great! I’ve had my eye on a few of those recipes too. Going to check out the lemon bars now, I love lemon bars.

    Thanks for sharing, Amanda! All of the recipes on this list sound incredible.
