Happy Easter!

I'm on Spring Break and finally have some time to blog before I head off on my vacation to Bali!  I am really looking forward to a few days in the rice fields with nothing to do but read, eat, and occasionally dip in the pool.

But until Wednesday, I have a lot of catching up to do, in all areas of my life.  I'm in the midst of an online workshop for my job which I need to get cracking on, I have been way too lazy with my workouts lately, and I haven't really done any experimenting in the kitchen.

But I have cooked up some winners - you should try them too!

Asian Chicken Noodle Soup
This is kind of like the peanut, coconut, spicy version of the stuff your mom used to serve to you when you had the sniffles.  It's not too spicy, takes about 20 minutes to make, and you can honestly add in whatever veggies you have on hand.  I added onions, celery and mushrooms rather than let them go to waste in my fridge.

Flaky Crescent Rolls
These are the homemade version of Pillsbury crescent rolls.  They take forever to make, so it is kind of a project but they are soft and pillowy.  I made them a while ago and put a bunch in the freezer so I didn't have to feel obligated to eat them all at once (though with some salted butter, that's exactly what I wanted to do!)

Snickerdoodle Blondies
I made these for my class for winning sports day at school.  They are so moist and are definitely comfort food.  Perfect for when you're craving something other than chocolate.  Cinnamon sugar is a close second.

Coconut Chocolate Chunk Blondies
This recipe turned out great just the way it was but I kinda want to play around with it in the future.  Though they tasted great, I was secretly hoping that they would taste like the coconut squares you get at M&M Meat Shops - those are amazing!  These didn't quite get there but they are a great easy dessert.

If you're looking for something to whip up this weekend, any of these would be great options.  Other than the rolls, they're easy and require few unusual ingredients.  For the squares, you probably already have everything you need in your pantry now.

Pasta recipe coming up tomorrow...
