What I Ate Wednesday: Recipes From My Friends

For this week’s What I Ate Wednesday post, I thought I would share some terrific recipes from other bloggers.

These Baked Pumpkin Donuts from Jennifer at The Fit Fork were the first recipe I made in the donut pan that I got for Christmas. It is a bit time-consuming to make 24 donuts in batches of 6 at a time, but the results are worth it!


When my husband referred to this Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal from Madeline at Food, Fitness & Family as an “apple crisp” I knew I would be making it again. It is a simple recipe, and an easy way to have “grab-and-go” oatmeal for work–or “apple crisp” for a healthy snack.

Tina’s Tortellini Sausage Soup is one recipe that I really missed during my vegetarian Lent. It was a big hit at my house–and was substantial enough to satisfy my teenage son.


Laura’s Crock Pot Chickpea Curry was a perfect addition to my vegetarian recipe collection, and was a great hearty and spicy dish for an unseasonably cold March.

    That tortellini soup looks outrageous. I need it in my stomachs immediately. Just clicked the recipe link. I love that it has so much garlic in it. Gonna make it.

    Hi there, new follower here =) Love your blog! These are great recipes! I'm a VA blogger too…just moved to NoVA in January and I'm working in DC! I'll be at the Cherry Blossom this weekend!

  8. OMFG! YUM! I totally want a donut pan so I can pour some butternut squash and eggs into it… Even though it's not a real DONUT, just eating food the shape of a donut will trick my taste buds into thinking I robbed a krispy kreme store!

    I bought chickpeas last week so that I could make Laura's crockpot recipe and still haven't gotten my act together to do it.

    Those donuts look awesome!

    Coco – For the apple/cin baked oatmeal, do you use the Stevia and the coconut milk (regular kind of coconut milk in a can?)?

    • I modify that recipe to omit the salt and Stevia, and use 1% milk. Also, to make it easier I use 1/2 cup of egg white instead of the egg/white combination and 2 apples even if its more than what the recipe calls for. I have been making a batch every week. I take some to work and Beau eats some for dessert!
