I can’t even count the number of recipes I’ve bookmarked from all the fabulous food blogs I follow. I have every intention of trying them all, it’s just a slow process with my “inconvenient day job” (as Dave over at My Year On The Grill calls it).
So many good recipes, so many talented cooks and not enough time.
Here’s a few things I’ve tried lately… 4 Down and about 200 hundred to go. 🙂
I saw this recipe for Cashew Chicken over at The Bitten Word. It seemed perfect for a “during the week” meal and easy it was, not to mention delicious. Thanks to Clay and Zach for this recipe. This is definitely one I’ll make over and over. For the recipe click HERE.
LOVED this. How about this combination: Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onions Gorgonzola Cheese Omelet with Sage. It sounded so interesting that I just had to give it a try. Delicious it is. Such interesting flavors inside that buttery creamy omelet. Thanks to clever Kevin over at Closet Cooking for this creation. Take a look HERE for the recipe and a much better photo.
And how about this Garlic Shrimp with Coconut Sauce -YUM. Bless her heart, Natashya over at Living in the Kitchen with Puppies posted this the Sunday of the Christmas Holiday weekend just as I SWORE I couldn’t eat one more bite of ham until Easter.
This recipe is really good. A combination of sweet, tangy and spicy. I served it over brown rice and this dish felt so fresh and healthy. Thanks Natashya. You can find the recipe by clicking HERE. A keeper for sure.
And Holy Posole – Red Posole for the grand finale. I saw this over at Homesick Texan and living where I live and loving the food I love, just knew I HAD to cook it and had to cook it now. This Posole even made me homesick for Texas and I’ve never even lived there.
I really didn’t tinker with this much. I added beef stew meat, only because it was in the freezer, along with a ham hock. Also, didn’t do the dried chili process because I had roasted Hatch chiles in the freezer and then sprinkled with Mexican cheese to finish Wonderful recipe with earthy, smokey, rich and complex flavors.
Don’t forget to use corn chips to scoop up all that wonderful flavor. DEELicious. Thank you Homesick for this recipe. You can see this recipe and a great story behind it by clicking HERE.
I’m pretty new at blogging, don’t know a lot of things yet, but do know one thing for sure, I’m loving my new references for great reading and great recipes. Thank you Bloggers.
