How did I let myself get three weeks behind on sharing with you What’s For Dinner? I’m sorry! I’ve saved all my bookmarks of recipes and everyday I look at them and think “Yeah, I gotta blog that”. Then I don’t do it. I’ve pushed myself to the deadline. In a few hours, my son and I are flying to Arizona for a week to visit my sister’s family. So excited! But I’m worried that if I power down my iPad, I’ll lose all of the saved recipes. So, here we are. I’ll just share them with you in a list with some thoughts behind them. Deal? Good!
Strawberry Pretzel Dessert – this is a family favorite and sooo yummy. My husband made it for a March Madness party at work. The recipe calls for raspberries, which I prefer, but he likes strawberries. Both work equally as well.
Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes – these were ok for a low calorie treat. But not as good as the real thing!
Popovers – YUMMY with cinnamon honey!
Broccoli Wild Rice Soup – another family favorite that is LIGHT!
Creme Brulee French Toast – this makes it’s own syrup and is delicious!
Buffalo Chicken Dip – we can’t seem to get enough of this stuff. It was a great March Madness snack.
Crockpot Italian Chicken – easy and delicious
Corned Beef Hash – I cook the corned beef in the crockpot all day then make this hash for dinner. Along with Irish Soda Bread from Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook, it’s the perfect St. Patrick’s Day meal. We finished it off with this rich Stout Cake.
One evening my husband and I hosted a mac and cheese bar party. I used this basic recipe for the cheese sauce, switching out the cheese. We had cheddar sauce, pepperjack sauce, and a gouda sauce. Then the guests choose which meats, veggies, and toppings they wanted to mix in. The party was a hit and I think we’ll do it again!
There you have it, a brief roundup of what we’ve been eating the past few weeks. I’ll be taking this next week off, as I won’t be home to cook. Right when I get back, it’ll be Easter and time to get in the kitchen! Have a good week. What are you having for dinner? 🙂
