Three Meals

thai basil beef, breakfast lunch dinner, jambalaya, easy recipes, pancakes from scratch

Remember this post? I’ve been pretty sporadic about making meals at home since then, except for the past few weeks when I’ve cooked more than once each week. I’ve been trying a few new recipes, so I thought I’d share the ones I liked.

Good Old-Fashioned Pancakes (image via): This recipe is not new to me; I’ve been using it for months. I tried it one day after my friend Smita tweeted the link. If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I eat pancakes almost every weekend. If I’m not making them at home, it’s probably because I’m out ordering them for brunch. These are pancakes from scratch and they’re still very easy and very tasty.

Thai Beef with Basil: Asian-style recipes are my favorite to make at home and I tried this one for the first time yesterday. Again, this one was super easy and the fragrance/taste of the basil was yummy.

Jambalaya: I love a one-pot recipe. For this one, you just slowly add in all the ingredients and then let the whole thing simmer for 30ish minutes. Easy peasy and delicious. I didn’t have any shrimp when I tried this, so I eliminated that, and I definitely put in a bit too much spicy creole seasoning for my taste. In the end I just powered through with several glasses of water because it still tasted pretty great.

Tell me: Have you tried any good recipes recently?
