I haven't had Cornish game hens in years- probably since I still lived at home and my mom made them, but I had a sudden craving and snatched a couple when I found them at the local grocery store. Then I noticed parsnips and remembered a delicious roasted vegetable recipe I got from Aly years ago that is perfect for a fall dinner and would complement my hens well. And so, wala- pin together post!
I hope you all are enjoying some of these recipes as much as I am! I love coming on this blog and seeing what my sisters are posting; it's inspiring and always mouth-watering! When I saw Aly's post of the Cold Asian Salad, I knew I had to make it ASAP! We, of course, grew up eating the same meals and have the same eagerness to enjoy all things Japanese whenever possible; I could tell it was a winner! I made the salad for lunch one day but we loved it so much and had enough leftover, I wanted it for dinner the next day too, In order to make it a more filling and complete dinner meal, I decided to add some tofu to round out the Asian inspiration.
My 10 month old loves yogurt. And I love it that she loves plain yogurt! So as I usually like to do, I tried several homemade, easy, yogurt recipes until I found one that worked for me. Check it out. The only thing I changed is that I didn't have a lot of powdered milk, so I put in about a 1/4 cup and it still turned out great! I don't like yogurt as thick as greek yogurt and thankfully, it wasn't. Nor was it too tangy, despite the fact that I left it in the oven overnight for 10+ hours. You can use the yogurt for chicken masala (on my menu list), in baking, to turn down the heat in spicy meals or just as the main course!
I acquired some wonderful, huge, inexpensive organic sweet potatoes awhile back. I had been eyeing this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it whirl. I also had been curious about this Cheez-Its recipe so I figured I would do a Pin Together meal! As you may know from reading another post of mine, I don't like buying ingredients I'll likely never use again...because well let's call it "The Inevitable Move". And my dislike for sodas motivated me to look for another pulled pork recipe and thanks again to Pinterest, I found one!
Good morning! In this first Pin Together (whoop, whoop!) post, I (Aly) will start with the most important meal of the day! Most Saturdays, we like to cook up a large breakfast. It's been a tradition the kids love and even the hubs and I look forward to! Sometimes it's waffles, or farmers' market vegetable frittata, or french toast or a southern breakfast of homemade jam, freshly baked biscuits, eggs, breakfast meat and fruit salad. But last Saturday, the kids were thinking sweet, I was thinking protein, so we compromised!
Enter, leftover cottage cheese and Pinterest recipes!
