I haven’t posted anything in a little while, mostly because I’ve been doing a lot of running around and not much cooking, plus I’ve been making some dinner favs instead of trying out new recipes. I thought I’d share a few recipe reviews with you this week instead. The first three are from the food network show “5 Ingredient Fix”. These were dishes I made before I started the blog. The first is for Buttermilk Pecan Chicken. It was a little tricky for me when I first started cooking because the coating didn’t stick very well, but it tasted delicious!
On the side I included Brussel Sprouts with Bacon, Walnuts and Apple. It was a little different for me because of the apple but again the dish was pretty good and simple to make. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/claire-robinson/crispy-brussels-sprouts-recipe/index.html
The recipe I was most impressed with was the Maple Sweet Potato Puree with Caramelized onions. It was the first time I tried cooking sweet potato at home and I loved it. I’ve been adding maple syrup to my mashed sweet potato ever since.
For dessert I made these Chocolate Dulce De Leche bars from http://www.epicurious.com . They are sweet and yummy but you can’t really tell they have dulce de leche in them so I haven’t bothered to make them again. The shortbread crust is a great idea though. This could be inspiration some some other creation. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Chocolate-Dulce-de-Leche-Bars-242874
*Again I must apologize for the not so lovely photos but I figured they’d do in a pinch, just to help you visualize the final product.
