Recipe Roundup!

Standard

Husby + I have been intrigued by the cookbook Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way by Francis Mallmann. What we wouldn’t give to have a large backyard to build a fire pit in + grill a whole pig, or half a cow. One of the recipes from this week was taken from this book + even without the backyard grilling pit, it turned out excellent. I highly recommend this book!

On to the recipes:

Pork Tenderloin with Burnt Brown Sugar, Orange Confit, + Thyme via Seven Fires

 

Root Beer Float Cookies via Six Sisters’ Stuff

 

Perfect French Toast via Food Network

 

Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats via Gimme Some Oven!

 

Enjoy!

The recipes this week have turned out to be some of my new favorites! I’ve never had Eggplant Parmesan before + was really surprised how much I liked it…. even though the recipe misrepresented the cooking time. Not to leave out the cookies this week… they are really tasty! They turned out really light + fluffy even though the picture made them look more like a chewy cookie. Without further adieu… here they are:

 

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes via Food Network ~ we added about a 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese to these as well. They were also a huge hit at last year’s Thanksgiving dinner.

 

White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies via Tasty Kitchen ~ mmmm I want one now!

 

Herb Omelet with Cherry Tomatoes via Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite

 

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins via Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetitie

 

Eggplant Parmesan via Food Network ~ be forewarned, the recipe states 1 hr + 20 mins total time, but it will take you more like 2 hours.

 

Enjoy!

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! Ours was full of spending time at home + cooking. Here are some of the recipes:

 

Spinach + Feta Chicken Sausage Fettuccini via Al Fresco

 

Salmon Teriyaki with Asparagus via Men’s Health (April 2012 issue) ~ we also served with a side of crawfish. It was the first time I’ve seen them offered at the seafood counter.

 

Maxwell Street Polish Sausage Sandwich via Food Network Magazine served with Almost-Famous Fried Pickles via Food Network Magazine

 

Black + Blue Doughnut Pancakes via …and then I ate it! ~ the recipe is for plain doughnut pancakes, but I threw in a handful of blueberries and blackberries

 

Lemon-Raspberry Sorbet Cake via Food Network Magazine ~ Since I don’t like chocolate, I substituted the chocolate wafer cookies with Nilla wafers + the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips

 

Beef, Chorizo + Tater Tot Tacos via Food Network Magazine(chorizo-potato tacos) ~ we pulled the “50 Tacos” insert out of the May 2012 issue + combined their recipe for basic ground beef (we subbed steak strips) with the chorizo-potato recipe (we subbed tater tots for the potato) to make this combo taco.

 

Hope you like them! Enjoy.

I’ve only tried a few recipes this past week. With Husby being out of town, I just have no motivation to cook. It is really putting  a damper on my kitchen time!

Grilled Balsamic Pork Kebabs via Rachael Ray Magazine ~ the recipe only calls for onions on the kebabs with the pork, but we added zucchini to get some extra veggies

 

Buttermilk Pancakes via The Pancake Handbook ~ we added a handful or two of blueberries + they came out fantastic!

 

Bizcochitos via Food Network Magazine ~ I’ve never even heard of this type of cookie before, but is apparently New Mexico’s signature shortbread cookie. You can really taste the star anise to give it a unique flavor. Great with some passion tea!

 

Coming up this next week I’m going to try my first ever ice cream cake + a new pasta dish with chicken sausage! What are your favorite recipes?

Bette’s Diner Buttermilk Pancakes via The Pancake Handbook {Husby likes to substitute the buttermilk for greek yogurt!}

Shepherd’s Pie via Gordon Ramsay’s Recipes ~ this was perfect for St. Patty’s Day dinner with some imported beer {none for me + baby though!}
