This week’s #RRWhatchaCookin featured cook, @clairelize, not only created a perfect dish for this winter apocalypse, but also inspired us for our first themed #RRWhatchaCookin challenge! We LOVE seeing all of your instagram photos but we thought we’d mix things up a bit by including a theme. Seeing as this is the perfect weather for soups, stews, chili, oatmeal and anything else that can be eaten with a spoon, our first instagram challenge is: #inabowl. So be sure to tag all of your photos with both hastags (#RRWhatchaCookin and #inabowl) and we’ll pick our favorite to be featured on the blog next week! Happy eating, and be sure to stay warm!

If every meal looked as beautiful as @mckennasfood‘s Vegan Asian Salad, we’d go vegan in a heartbeat! This dish proves that with a little color and a lot of healthy and hearty ingredients like snap peas, avocado, mandarin oranges and almonds, you can turn an average salad into something extraordinary. Our own version of this salad may even make its way into our lunch boxes tomorrow!

We couldn’t help but notice Instagram user @inspiredchick‘s vibrant, mouth-watering photo of spaghetti and meatballs, and when we read it was her version of Rachael Ray’s Italian Spaghetti and Meatballs, we knew we had found a winner! There’s never a wrong time for spaghetti and meatballs, but it seems particularly appropriate right in the midst of winter.

‘Tis the season for all things apple! Blogger and Instagram user @urbankitchenla helped celebrate Peanut Butter Lovers’ Month (November) with this Honeyed Apple Peanut Butter Tart with Honey Caramel Sauce and Dark Chocolate. Just reading the title makes our mouths water! And if things couldn’t get any better, the pie is gluten-free and has no added sugar! You can get the recipe for this–and her other organic, paleo and gluten-free treats–on her blog.

As if these waffles and home fries aren’t beautiful enough, our mouths seriously started watering when we read what’s in them. Instagram user @jenjenkk cooked up asiago & rosemary savory waffles with sweet potato home fries and fresh maple syrup. We always love a good B-L-D (breakfast, lunch or dinner) recipe, and this one definitely fits the bill.

This week, a colorful and delicious looking shrimp pasta caught our eyes, made by Instagram user @heddy70. It looks like it’s full of seasonal and healthy veggies and–of course–plenty of shrimp.
