I can't believe the highlight of my weekend is trying new recipes. Am I getting that old? I'm convinced I have the last laugh, since I end up with food high, knowledge & no hangover. (Unless you add wine, then maybe a little hangover). The following dishes were made over the course of two weekends.
Sit down, grab a cup of tea & a notebook. This is a doozy of a post! Proscuitto & Parmesan Scramble - The LondonerThis is the only way I'm going to make scrambled eggs from now on. If you're wondering how the restos make them so creamy and lovely, it's all in Rosie's post. The Boy was floored that we could get them so good.
Morning Maple Cranberry Pecan Oat Bars - The Skinny Taste
Lovely to snack on during studying, in class, or just to have in your bag. I wasn't able to get it that nice compact consistency that she did, but I can work on it.
French Toast - The Boy's Recipe
I can write this up for those who are interested. I was never a fan of french toast because I found it too spongy and soggy. When The Boy made me his version, I was sold.
One Pot Pasta - The Londoner
I loved this dish, and it literally only took 20 mins to do! Faster if you're a quick veggie chopper. I enjoy this version more than Martha Stewart's, because it uses vegetable broth instead of water. It ends up with such a surprisingly creamy taste! Yum!Creamy Tomato & Spinach Pasta - Budget Bytes
OMG - that is all. New favourite dish; it's almost like a vegetarian + quicker version of penne a la vodka! And you know how much I love the latter. I could roll around in it. *I used my new rotini, which is 40% vegetables.
No-Fry Fries- Gwyneth Paltrow
These end up like gourmet fries I've eaten in Wicker Park. They're so delicious and a great trick to have up your sleeve. Especially, since they're not FRIED. Booya!
That is all. I hope you'll try some of these dishes, since they've been tested out by yours truly & given an A+.
Now I'm going to curl up on my couch, watch a movie & plan out next weekend's recipes. ^-^
