In Our Kitchen via Instagram

If you follow me on Instagram, it might look like we haven't done much but eat lately!  Well, that might be right, in some ways.  We've been trying several new recipes and the best of them were certainly worth sharing.

Both Brad and I liked this Broccoli Salad, it's got a light and tangy dressing plus the grapes are a lot easier on my sugars than raisins.  Overall, this one is a lot less sweet than the kind our grocery store's delicatessen makes so it's a win for this diabetic!

My daughter wanted to celebrate Chinese New Year, even though I explained to her Koreans don't normally do so.  As a compromise we made fried man doo, which are Korean meat & vegetable filled dumplings.  Guess who didn't like them?  More for me and Brad!

For a Super Bowl party I made pico de gallo from scratch for the first time, using the Pioneer Woman's recipe.  I used just one jalapeno and not three in mine.  I also used some to make chunky guacamole as well.

Then both the pico de gallo & guacamole went into a layered bean dip, minus two of the layers - olives were on the side and it's not the right time of year to be grilling corn, recipe also from Pioneer Woman and in her latest book.  

Mondays are always busy for us since E has dance and crock pot meals are great for days like that.  This Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce is yummy!  It does make a lot so you have lots of leftovers, perfect for freezing and having on hand for more quick dinners or to get started on things like lasagna.

Inspired by this pin I used what I had on hand to make a quick version for my Nutella loving daughter.  Mine uses frozen waffles spread with Nutella, topped with cut up strawberries and Reddi Wip.  Easy peasy and while this wasn't for Valentine's Day, wouldn't it make a great breakfast on the 14th?
