Now that I am getting back into the swing of blogging it is time to bring back my “What’s Cooking” posts. My plan is to blog each Sunday about the recipes I tried/cooked the past week. All of the recipes are ones that I find on Pinterest (they are saved on my boards) OR recipes I experiment to make.
One Pan Mexican Quiona – So I have become a fan of this Damn Delicious’s recipes and decided to give this a try for our Mexican night. OMG just like the other recipes I’ve tried this was a success with the girls. As you can see in the picture I paired the “dip” with black tortilla chips and topped with cheese. I did make some deviations from the recipe — no jalapeños and used fire-roasted corn. A plus was this tasted great as a leftover snack. Give it a try. (Family rating: 👍 👍 👍)
Kale and Yellow Tomatoes Pasta – This recipe comes from The Bitter Side of Sweet blog. I needed easy and quick meals during our “Camp” week since I was also working at nights. The vegetables came from our local farmer’s market and as you can see I used yellow tomatoes. It was easy to make and I will make it again BUT as a lunch meal for me and maybe my oldest. Unfortunately little K was not a fan of it. Give it a try. (Family Rating: 👍 👍 👎)
Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar – this is a Babble recipe that I came upon when looking for other desserts to try in a mason jar. It just so happened that I had some strawberries and was planning on going to the market that day. Now I had an oops moment for I totally forgot the vanilla frosting BUT the girls loved it no matter what. Give it a try. (Family rating: 👍 👍 👍)
