recipes I've tried this week

Oh what a week it has been...we had a family dinner last Sunday and ordered food. 24 hours later, 8 out of 9 of us had the stomach flu. We're thinking food poisoning... It took a good three days for everyone's appetites to be back to normal so I'm short a few recipes this week due to the chicken broth that was had a few nights.

Oh, and let me tell you about the snow. It just won't stop and I am thoroughly annoyed and sick and tired of it. I woke up this morning to yet another snow storm. We have had snow for six straight months and that is FAR TOO LONG. And far too many -30c days too. BLEH. I need spring to come soon....like tomorrow would be good. :)

Yesterday for the first time, I made spring rolls (with chicken)! It was a lengthy process but the end result was so worth it. I tried the recipe of my good friend Kasia over at my full house blog. I wanted just the right sauce to go with them - I had a typical vietnamese sauce in mind so I found this one and it was perfect with the spring rolls. Can't wait to have the leftovers today for lunch!!!

The night we all felt like our normal selves again, I made this creamy spinach tortellini. YUMMMMMMM. It got devoured quickly.

Last meal of this week was crispy beef. This had a nice orange flavour to it and the beef crisped up nicely. Very tasty.

I had a couple brown bananas so of course that meant banana bread had to be made. Found this cinnamon crumb banana bread. It just came out of the oven and smells delicious!

Isabella mentioned chocolate chip cookies the other day so now I have had that on the brain and therefore had to try a new recipe for some. The best soft and chewy coconut oil chocolate chip cookies caught me eye. The dough is chilling in the fridge as I write this...
