It’s no secret that I spend a lot of time poring over magazines, cookbooks, Pinterest, and other websites and blogs looking for recipe inspiration. I wish I had more time and money to try all the recipes I’ve pinned, bookmarked, tabbed, etc.; but I thought since I don’t have an unlimited supply of either time or money (if you have ideas of how I can accomplish this, let me know) I’d share with you some of the recipes I’d like to try SOMEDAY.
Perhaps if I spent less time looking for recipes and more time making them, I could fit it all in. But then, oh horror, I might miss something!!!!
Be assured that I will try these recipes ONE DAY and when I do I will write ‘Recipe Reviews’ and let you know my thoughts, but for now just sit back and drool with me! Let’s get started…
ONE. I wish I was one of those people who could skip past a recipe with “Cheesy” or “Bacon” in the title, but I am not. These just sound incredible to me…..
TWO. If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I am not afraid of making homemade pie crust (in fact, if anything the filling always scared me more than the crust); but this looks this idea is so yummy and cool I just know I need to give it a try.
THREE. Since we have an abundance (some would say “over-abundance”) of tomatoes in our garden right now, I should make this soon. The flavor combination sounds delish to me.
FOUR. Another great idea for tomato season that combines my love of shrimp and my love of feta cheese with my current profusion of tomatoes!!!
FIVE. I am not typically a casserole gal. I much prefer my food in separate piles on my plate to it being all in one pile; however this sounds too good to pass up to me.
SIX. Anything that promises to be a HEALTHY alfredo is worth a try if you ask me! I cannot imagine it will be as good as regular alfredo, but even if it’s only half as good (and it’s healthy) it’s a win!
SEVEN. I LOVE chickpeas. In fact, I must confess, there was a time I was probably addicted to them! Hummus, yummus! Fried Ceci, yes pleasi! And now….
EIGHT. I have written previously about a culinary rut Jeff and I got into for a while….we were relying very heavily on quesadillas for dinner. They were fast and usually easy – since we used a lot of leftovers. But had we tried this quesadilla, we probably would not have felt like it was a rut.
NINE. Oh, this next one combines three of my favorite things in one dish and makes me think of a salad I had at one of my favorite restaurants, The Salvation Café. I love the peppery bite of arugula, the luxurious texture of goat cheese, and the earthy taste of beets!!!
TEN. OK. If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, I would choose Parmesan cheese. I love the salty, nutty, butter combination and I truly think it is the world’s most perfect food. So it’s no surprise that I would add the next recipe to my list of “must try’s.”
Well, I cannot promise to stop trolling for recipes, but I can promise that someday I will make the 10 recipes above and let you know how they turn out. Hmmmm….maybe I should do a “10 recipes in 10 weeks” series. I’ll give that some thought, just as soon as I put down the latest issue of bon appetite magazine!
