Bakin’ Barley

So this morning I woke up and went about my usual routine.

Vitamin – check. Coffee – double check.

Then I sit down to peruse the blogs of those who are up late and those who wake up earlier than I do.

Jess writes such a great blog – and it is sooo dangerous to read first thing in the morning. It’ll have me craving bacon, cupcakes, pancakes or chocolate from 7am onward. Today was no different, but it was a recipe that I immediately started to think about doing for dinner:

Her White Bean and Parmesan Baked Orzo.

I had everything I needed to make it – sans the orzo. I was determined though…so I subbed in barley.

It reminded me a lot of my mom’s Green Rice – but with a lot more good stuff going on. The beans made this so, so satisfying.

Plus, I’m always a sucker for anything that has a cheesy crust. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll definitely be making this again – and doing the original version, too.

  • What have been some recipes that you’ve seen around the blogosphere lately that you absolutely had to make (or at least thought about it)?ย
