From Your Kitchen To Mine: Risotto, Spanakopita, Spanish Rice, Pork Chops, Sausage Balls

Hey, Everyone!  I'm happy to announce that I've completed the first 5 recipes for the "From Your Kitchen To Mine:  100 Recipes from 100 Blogs" series.  I had so much fun last week cooking through these recipes.  If you try them out, I know you'll enjoy them as much as my husband and I did! 

If your recipe is featured today, feel free to grab my button and tell the world you were featured here!
I'd love it :)!









Check out the recipes!

 I got the recipe for Creamy Mushroom Risotto from Marelize at Not Without My Mom.  I should probably give you all a disclaimer:  I- love- risotto!  This dish was SUPER tasty and I can't even believe I made this by myself.  It tasted professional, and I'm far from professional.  An added bonus is that it was a lot of fun reading Marelize's instructions; she has a great sense of humor.  She gave great tips on how to cook it correctly and I felt like she was in the kitchen with me.  If you try this dish, I know you'll love it as much as we did!  Thanks, Marelize!

 I found the Spanakopita recipe at Kimba's Kitchen.  Oh my goodness, I could have spent a whole week perusing her recipes.  The pictures she takes of her food make them all look so delectable, which, after trying this recipe, I'm sure they all are!  Maybe my next series should be called "Imitating Kimba" because I want to try everything she tries--seriously!  Anyway, this dish was exactly what the title says:  easy!  The hardest part was locating where the Phyllo/Filo dough was in my grocery store.  Easy + Tasty = 4 thumbs up (4 out of 4) in the Foreign Domestic home!

This recipe came from What's Cooking at Our House.  Let me start off by saying that I love crock pot meals!  I made this meal on a night we were entertaining friends; it was a hit, and it was really easy.  The mashed potatoes were also easy to prepare although they weren't cooked in the crock pot.  Actually, I'm not sure how they would've turned out if they were cooked in one--maybe not so good.  Regardless, this dish was tasty and easy!

This recipe came from Our Delightful Home.  Our Delightful Home is one of the blogs that inspired me to do this series.  Mrs. Delightful posts these amazing looking and sounding recipes and I often comment on how much I want to try them and, in the past, I just didn't get around to it.  I chose her Spanish rice and beans recipe because, well, I love Spanish rice and beans!  The process was straightforward and the result was delightful--pun definitely intended.  Thank you, Mrs. Delightful!

 This recipe came from Henning Love. As I was perusing recipes on Meg's site, I saw her recipe for the pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting and decided to try it out.  Meg made this process super easy--even for someone (like me) who doesn't bake a lot.  She has pictures each step of the way so you can see what the process is supposed to look like which made it that much easier!  I took this dessert to a Bible study and everyone loved it.  Thanks so much, Meg!

Sausage Balls




As promised, here's a 'new' recipe from The Foreign Domestic today!  I think the first time I ever tried this recipe was when my brother-in-law fixed them when I paid him and my sister a visit in Georgia.  These sausage balls are full of flavor and only take 3 ingredients.  They're my go-to breakfast recipe when I just don't have a lot of time to fix anything else, especially when we have company visiting.  Thanks, again, James for introducing these to me. 

Here's the recipe: 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 2 cups flour biscuit mix
  • 1 pound shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine sausage, biscuit mix, and cheese. Form into walnut size balls and place on baking sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown and sausage is cooked through.
Enjoy!
