Friday Favorites - Week 1
I'm fortunate to have a lot of people that come by for a visit and several that follow and comment on a regular basis, so it was difficult to decide what to do for this first Friday Favorites post, but finally I decided to feature a single blogger. So without further ado, I'd like to introduce you all to Chaya!
Chaya is the creator of Chaya's Comfy Cook Blog AND Sweet & Savory. Chaya's also a contributer at Our Krazy Kitchen, where they have recipes, tips, and fun foodie round-ups. Chaya is a loyal follower and commenter, and she's a regular contributor to my monthly Sweet Thursday round-ups. She's also a great friend and an excellent blogger!
Chaya's blogs chronicle her kitchen adventures, featuring tons of delicious and unique culinary creations. Chaya's Comfy Cook Blog is dedicated to gluten-free recipes, while at Sweet & Savory pretty much anything goes. To be honest, I never knew much about gluten-free food till I visited Chaya's Comfy Cook blog, and her blog has definitely kept me open minded about it. As you can imagine I've been most inspired by her gluten free desserts! Chaya is a big fan of Nigella Lawson, Paula Deen, and Dorie Greenspan, and they're recipes often serve as models for her gluten-free masterpieces. Here's just a couple of yummy examples:
Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Cookies adapted from a Nigella Lawson Recipe.
So what about Chaya's other blog? Why, I thought you'd never ask! Sweet & Savory has even more of Chaya's delicious recipes. The tagline says it all: "Over the years, my taste in food has changed, as have my recipes. This blog will chronicle the changes I continue to make, as I face challenges in healthier eating and in new methods of cooking."
Well said! And from the looks of things, it's turning out to be a fabulous journey. I'm tempted to brag on Chaya's recent chocolate chip cookie and brownie posts, but there's so much more that I could mention, other than desserts. One recipe I'd love to try is Chaya's Moo Goo Gai Pan. Looks delicious, huh?
And here's one of her many pasta dishes: Quick & Easy Pasta. Yum!
