Believe it or not, I actually completed both blog topics this week. Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years!
This week’s Wednesday topic is A-Z Recipes, either ones we love to make or want to try making. I had to make up or alter names for a few of them so they would fit certain letters, but I made it work! I didn’t include the recipes or link to them because most of them or either in books or in my head, but if you’re interested in one, let me know and I can write it out in the comments.
A – Asparagus and Broccoli Chicken Stir Fry (totally takes the place of wanting to order Chinese take-out)
B – Basil Pesto Pasta with Roasted Vegetables
C – Chicken Fricassee (one of the first “real recipes” I ever tried cooking)
D – Dad’s Chili (I’m very picky about chili, not too tomato-y, although I do make a few changes from his recipe)
E – Edamame Chicken Pot Pie (it’s just Chicken Pot Pie with Edamame in it, but I really like it and it worked for “E”)
F – Fried Chicken (never made it but my Southern roots make me feel like I should try it)
G – Goat Cheese and Red Pepper Panini
H – Homemade Double Chocolate Fudge Brownies (these are beyond sinful, I usually only make these at Christmas because they are kind of labor intensive and have ridiculous amounts of butter in them)
I – Invisible Parrot (2 parts Sprite or 7UP with 1 part Malibu Rum and a slice of lime – delicious)
J – Jones’ Family Famous Homemade Spaghetti Sauce (actually my husband’s recipe)
K – Kayleigh’s Signature Chocolate and Butterscotch Chip Cookies
L – Lasagna (I love my mom’s lasagna recipe, I’m not big on sauce on hers is not saucy at all)
M – My Grandpa’s Parmesan Chicken (it could be in any Italian restaurant it’s that good, if he would just give me the recipe)
N – Not Your Mom’s Chinese Spaghetti and Meatballs (it involves ground chicken meatballs with Chinese Five Spice, pea pods, and sesame oil on the noodles)
O – Orange Tempeh Vegetable Stir Fry
P – Pesto Pasta with Italian Chicken Sausage
Q – Quiche (never made one, only had it for the first time this summer but I really liked it)
R – Redskin Garlic Mashed potatoes (simple but I love them)
S – Skinny Burrito Bowl (so good!)
T – Thanksgiving Squash Casserole (it’s really just a squash casserole, but I only make it on Thanksgiving)
U – Utterly Delicious Apple Pie Rolls (I just saw these on Pinterest, you use Crescent rolls and put a slice of apple in each one along with spices and nuts, then roll them up and bake them; I can’t wait to try them this fall)
V – Vegetarian Lasagna Rolls
W – Walnut Oatmeal Banana Bread
X – Xasperating Pumpkin Roll Cake (it’s so good but very tricky, again a Thanksgiving only recipe)
Y – Yummy Summer Apple Salad (apple, pineapple, butterscotch pudding mix, and whip cream; very easy and tastes like caramel apples)
Z – Zucchini Taco Boats
Check out the links below to see what the other bloggers love to make (or want to try making):
Invisible Parrot is my new favorite drink name and I feel like it would double as an indie band name.
Also? I’m gonna be begging you for some of these recipes. 😀
I also do lot like tomato-y sauces. I feel you on those recipes.
Mmm zucchini taco boats! I love those!!
