Hello again. Another Wednesday, another ‘victim’, another day of food. I love this little experiment of eating my way through another blogger’s archives so much. It’s a fantastic experience so far 🙂 In a nutshell I cook and eat (and enjoy) a full day of recipes of one blogger each time.
And now for week #3 let’s dive into The Big Man’s World of recipes!
Confession #1: I make a lot of his recipes already and I might be a teeny tiny bit obsessed with these cookies!
Confession #2: I adore this guy! I love his charming wit, all the sass and his more serious posts as well. In a twerking contest I’d always bet on him (I only say Santa’s Twerkshop!) and when it comes to a coolness competition between Canning Tatum and No-Bake Boy I am all ‘Channing Who?’ (But don’t tell him, I don’t want his head to explode 😉
So on Sunday I embraced my inner fangirl and enjoyed a full day of eats Arman Style – excuse me #WholeArmanStyle
Aaahm yes. We had Granola made on the grill. Wisely I divided it in two batches and promptly
lost sacrificed half of the first batch to the fire gods when the foil ripped mid-shake. Use good quality foil, Juli!!!!! Luckily there was a second batch which survived the grilling but not much of the breakfast. I was intrigued by the idea of heaving melted marshmallow and melted chocolate in my granola and so I added it to the warm oats and stirred it through. EPIC! I added a little cashew milk and enjoyed a fantastic breakfast of Campfire S’mores Granola. Stefan licked out the foil. What happened after the breakfast is history and can be looked up here!
After all the sweet I was happy to have a savory lunch planned. And some meat. This recipe was one I had in my mind for weeks but never managed to give it a go. The Healthy Pho Noodle Salad was a winner in my books and made a great lunch on Monday as well. I love when recipes have leftover lunch potential and this one clearly has! I also loved the cashew topping for some extra crunch.
I spend some time in the kitchen after my second NOD (nap of the day) and whipped up a batch of these No Bake Sun Butter Bars! It took me some time as I had to make sunbutter first. The lazy sod in me wanted to back out again but I had set my mind and wanted to try those bars for ages!
They were so worth having to clean up the food processor! The texture is amazingly soft and chewy and the chocolate just adds the right amount of crispness. I gave a fuck about making them paleo and used Lindt chocolate. I would have added more chocolate but mid-pour I ran dry! Whaaaaaaaat????
We spend the afternoon on the balcony with the bubble machine and a bottle of wine. Around 8 pm I got hungy and needed something to soak up some wine with. When I am feeling fancy I make pancakes for dinner. So once again I whipped out my magic wand and whisked up some pancake dough. Cinnamon Bun Protein Pancake dough to be precise! Luckily I have a large pan and can bake three pancakes at once. So it didn’t took me too long to make dinner. The cream cheese frosting is bomb and I ate my way through the cinnamon bun-ish – pancake tower even though I was not hungry anymore in the end! What a delicious day!
Many thanks dear Arman for posting these wonderful recipes and making this day of eats possible. You know already that I love what you do. Please don’t ever become (no-bake) cookie cutter and keep bringing on the creative and amazing recipes.
And also many thanks to lovely Jenn for hosting WIAW!
Okay guys, now I am going to check out what you had on your plates this week. I might feel a little hungry and seek more inspiration!
