Since we have all been spending a lot of time at home in the last couple of months, I have had the chance to cook so many delicious foods! From pancakes and pizza to enchiladas and chocolate cake, I really have made a bunch of meals in my kitchen. They all taste so great that I wanted to share all the recipes with you to make at home! There is a link to each recipe below.
I’ve had to get more creative with my breakfast during this quarantine period because I can take time to cook a nice meal. When I would work my 9-5 job with a long commute to the office, I would usually eat a bagel or eggs. With me being home, I still have the occasional bagel or bowl of cereal but I have also made pancakes, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and smoothies!
At my office, there is a restaurant that I usually buy from 3-4 times a week. I know it’s a lot of money but It’s very convenient to have so much food steps away from my desk. Since I’ve been at home, I’ve had to make my lunches most days so again I had to get creative and turn to my Pinterest food board for meal inspiration. I still buy salad kits from the grocery store to eat for lunch, but I do cook a lot of my meals on the stove.
The local grocery store in my town has published multiple delicious recipes to their website that I have enjoyed cooking. I’ve gotten very inventive in the kitchen with cooking meals that take a lot of time or food that I wouldn’t normally make after a long day of work. During a normal week I would probably cook one or two meals because I usually get home from work late, so my boyfriend cooks most of our dinners. But now since I’m home due to the stay at home order, it’s my turn in the kitchen! You can see from the recipes below that we like to eat a lot of chicken, however we also eat fish, steak, and pork once a week.
DRINKS & DESSERT
Ah yes dessert, my favorite food group. I have long baked many desserts that usually only last a few days in my house. My specialties are cookies and cakes. During this lock-down period I have also made banana break 4 different times, as many of us have done. We have also had to get creative with the alcoholic beverages that we drink because bars and most liquor stores are closed.
