From Your Kitchen To Mine: Recipes 36-40

It's hard to believe I'm sharing recipes 36-40 today.  That's 40 recipes from 40 different blogs.  This series has quickly become one of my favorites.  It's been fun getting to interact with different bloggers and trying completely new recipes.  I asked this when I started this series 8 weeks ago, and I'll ask it again:  who needs a cookbook when you have so many amazing blogs??

Salmon Croquettes


This recipe came from Mary at Passionate Perseverance.  Scott and I both love salmon and after looking at the ingredients list for this recipe, I was really excited to try it out.  The process is really easy.  After cooking the salmon, it took very little time to finish the other steps.  When I took a bite into one of the croquettes, I felt like I was biting into something served at a 5-Star restaurant.  Not that I think I'm a 5-Star caliber chef (or 4...3..or 2 star), but the combination of flavors melded beautifully.  I think it would be fun to make the patties even smaller and use them as appetizers for parties.  SO delicious!  Thanks, Mary!

7Up Biscuits
A couple of weeks ago, my sister, Lauren, told me about an amazing biscuit recipe she found on Pinterest that tasted like Popeye's Chicken biscuits.  After our conversation, I found the link on her boards and pinned it to mine so I could try it out.  Needless to say, I followed the link and it took me to Plain Chicken.  One thing Lauren loved and I also loved was how few ingredients the recipe calls for.  I actually made these biscuits a couple of times in past week.  One time, I made them with fresh 7UP and the biscuits were nice and plump.  The past time I made them the 7UP was a bit flat and, sadly, the biscuits looked a little flat as well.  Unfortunately, the flat 7UP time was the time I took these pictures.  Even though they weren't as plump as the first time, they still tasted amazing!  So quick, easy, and yummy.  Thanks, Plain Chicken!

Rosemary Pork Roast

You all know that I love a good slow cooker/crock pot meal!  But {confession alert}, I've never been big on making roasts.  I don't know why, I just tend to opt for other dishes.  But I thought I'd do something different this time and do a traditional roast.  I found this recipe at Miz Helen's Country Cottage. The picture of her roast looked so juicy and tender, it was hard not to want to try it.  I was really pleased that mine turned out to be just as juicy and tender as hers looked.  The aroma of the rosemary and other seasonings cooking were heavenly and made for a well-flavored and satisfying meal.  After this dish, I see myself making lots of roasts in the future.  Thanks, Miz Helen!

Skinny Baked Ziti
 

This recipe came from Cupcakes to Hot Buns.  I saw the word "skinny" next to "baked ziti," and I was intrigued.  I whipped this up for Sunday dinner in hardly any time.  This is a great meal after a busy day.  The kind of meal that tastes like you've been cooking in the kitchen all day but takes about 20 minutes (at the most) to get in the oven.  We really enjoyed it and Scott loved having the left-overs for lunch the next day.  Thanks for sharing this recipe, Allison!

Chicken Broccoli Supreme

 
This recipe came from Get off Your Butt and Bake!  Fun name, huh?  I made this meal for a few friends who came over for dinner.  It had great flavor and all who partook left satisfied.  The recipe was very straight-forward and easy to put together.  I think the hardest part was smashing up the crackers, and even that was fun!  I did veer off of the recipe a little bit and didn't put poppy seeds on top.  Scott has already put in a request for this one to show up in future meal planning lineups.  Thank you, Jonna, for this great recipe!

Turkey Bacon Carbonara


I love pasta carbonara but I know it's not always the healthiest.  After reading over a few different recipes, I exchanged some ingredients to make it a little healthier.  Or at least it tricks me into thinking it's not as unhealthy as it is.  Let me know what you think!
 
Ingredients: 
  • 8 ounces dried linguini 
  • 1/2 cup turkey bacon sliced into small bits
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fine sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons fresh chives sliced
  • 1½ cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Steps: 
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat.  Add salt.
  • Sauté the turkey bacon over medium-low heat until crisp. Add the yogurt and bring to a simmer and whisk the egg yolks into the sauce. 
  • Add the black pepper and season to taste with salt. Place sauce to the side and keep warm.
  • Cook the pasta in the boiling salted water.
  • Drain the pasta then add it to the sauce.  
  • Stir in the chives and parmesan; let everything sit for one minute to properly absorb all of the flavors.
  • Serve quickly while still warm. 
  • Enjoy!
