Recipe Roundup no.1

14 ideas for dinner this week | healthy dinner ideas | whole30 recipes | Houston Lifestyle Blog Lady in Violet

I’ve always loved to cook, and this extra time at home has given me plenty of time to test my culinary skills.  While I do occasionally mix up my own recipe concoctions, I really love searching through pinterest for fun new recipes to try out.  In case you are in need of a few new ideas for dinner this week, I thought I would start sharing some of the hit recipes that I have found and cooked.  The images are the actual meal that I prepared and below each image is a link back to the original recipe.

When searching for recipes, I mainly look for Whole 30, Paleo, and/or dairy free.  I also don’t eat much pasta, so I usually search for recipes that are low carb.  Most of the recipes I choose will be a from scratch recipe (aka not to many pre-made or processed ingredients), and something I can put together in 30-45 minutes on a weeknight.

Scroll through for a look at what I’ve cooked over the last few months and hopefully you will find some new ideas for dinner the week!  Once I have another good roundup of recipes, I’ll share in a new post!  Also, you can check out my Pinterest page for more recipe ideas that I have saved.
