What's Been Sounding Yummy to Me Lately Volume 2

I have over 20 tabs open in Chrome on my phone so it's time for another edition of What's Been Sounding Yummy to Me Lately.  Here is Volume 1.

Honey Mustard Pork Chops - Budget Bytes

It's recipes like these that make me wish I ate meat.  I bought tofu yesterday and I'm going to try doing a vegetarian version of this soon.  I also think the marinade would work well on potatoes.  Meat eaters- please try this for me.

Tomato Soup With Parmesan Croutons - The Pioneer Woman

I recently had an incredibly delicious tomato soup and now I am trying to replicate it.  Pioneer Woman posted this just yesterday which is perfect timing for me.  

Baked Ham and Cheese Sliders - Recipe Girl

Again, I'll do a vegetarian version of this.  What intrigues me about this recipe is baking a whole bunch all at once, the Hawaiian bread, and the onion topping.  Tiny oven paninis!

Lemony Kale and Quinoa Salad - Budget Bytes

This could end up being really gross, but it's so healthy and intriguing that I want to give it a try.

15 Brussels Sprouts Recipes - Gimme Some Oven

Brussels Sprouts are my second favorite vegetable (after broccoli - gooooo cruciferous veggies!) and I always eat them the same way: roasted in the oven.  I'm looking forward to trying them in different ways.

1-Hour Cinnamon Rolls - Gimme Some Oven

Usually when I don't feel like making real cinnamon rolls (because they take forever with all the rising) I make them with biscuit dough.  I'm glad to see there's a faster way using regular dough.

Italian Orzo Spinach Soup - Gimme Some Oven

This looks so good!  I am definitely making this after I make the tomato soup.

Mexican Quinoa Casserole - Well Plated

My god this looks so cheesy and wonderful.  I am making it next week!  I love finding new quinoa recipes because it is so so so good for you.

Quick Curried Chickpeas - Budget Bytes 

I am trying these because I am still on a quest to find a good homemade Indian recipe to put into regular rotation.  Hopefully this will be it!

Creamy Black Bean Enchiladas - Budget Bytes

I have made enchiladas several times lately using Budget Bytes delicious homemade enchilada sauce, but I've never done a creamy filling.  I am excited to try this.

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Poppers - Simply Taralynn

These look so simple and delicious. Caramel + pretzel+ drizzled chocolate = Mmmmmmmmm


  1. Brussel sprouts are your favorite vegetable?????
    Spinach, zucchini, squash, peas, carrots, cut green beans, corn, all of those come after Brussel sprouts. Oh my.
    Due to the family story from my uncle's time in England during WWII, brussel sprouts were never served, except as material for a joke between my father and his brother. Then I tried them later on, and really did not like them.
    Broccoli and cauliflower, those are better.
    Do you like okra too?

    1. Have you ever had brussel sprouts roasted in the oven or pan-roasted? That is how I love them. Boiled, they would be disgusting. I have never tried okra.
