Sunday Seven: Seven of my favorite recipes
Happy Sunday! ♥
Since discovering the awesomeness that is Pinterest, I have tried quite a few recipes I found on that site. Some have made it into my cooking repertoire on a regular basis.
These are seven of my faves, everything from entrees to appetizers to beverages. 🙂
Many of you know I’m a fan of tea. I will occasionally do up finger foods for a tea party, either by myself or with a friend. One of my faves is these cucumber sandwiches, which you can see pictured below on the bottom right. However, this recipe calls for Italian seasoning and I use dill instead. They are sooo tasty. Everyone who’s tried mine has loved them. 🙂
This is one of my husband’s favorites. It’s delicious, a great combo of hot and sweet, and perfect served over white rice. Fair warning: the first time I made it, I thought it was way too sweet, so the next time I reduced the brown sugar. Eventually I went back to the original recipe, but if you prefer a more savory flavor, I def recommend reducing the brown sugar.
These are soooo fab. If you’re a fan of regular deviled eggs and you also love bacon, these will rock your world. Ever since I discovered this recipe, I’ve been making them for get togethers and holidays and people love them. They’re always demolished in short order. Yum.
These are super easy but so tasty! They can be eaten alone, served warm or cold, and if you like, you can spruce up the recipe by adding your preferred veggies and/or meat. I usually add oven-roasted shrimp.
This is another simple and quick recipe to throw over rice (as long as you have the chili sauce prepared ahead of time). These are spicy and delicious and the final result can vary a bit depending on which beer you use, which is a way to mix it up. I’d highly recommend using the homemade chili sauce recipe linked within this one. We loved it so much more than the store bought kind.
This is another quick, easy recipe. Are you guys sensing a trend? I’m a fan of not working harder than you have to when it comes to cooking and of keeping messes contained since I hate washing dishes. The first time I saw a link to this recipe, it was a no-brainer. I knew I’d be trying it, and I’m glad I did. I made it regularly before I went on my carb-restricted diet, but even now I plan to indulge on occasion. Everything in moderation, right? If you’re a fan of chicken and alfredo, give this a whirl. I think you’ll dig it!
This recipe is so simple, but it’s delicious, if you’re a fan of frozen mixed drinks like I am. I love strawberry-banana smoothies, so the first time I tried a strawberry-banana daiquiri, I was sold. Add coconut, of which I am also a fan, and it’s even better! Whip up a pitcher of these next time you crave a daiquiri. I promise you won’t be disappointed if you’re normally a fan of the flavors. 🙂
