First, remember those mushrooms that I over-bought? Well I took my massive amounts of mushrooms and turned them into Cream of Mushroom Soup as featured on Smitten Kitchen. It was very very good. I followed Deb's suggestion of adding less cream and I also added about a half cup of Chardonnay (because I happened to have it around).
Then, and the Brain will be upset with me if I don't make this one again, I made Skillet Lasagna from More than Burnt Toast. This was super easy and came together in a flash. And to top it off it was hearty and was just right for a rainy weekend night where the Brain and I both came home tired and hungry. Really really tasty.
Finally, I made the Nut Balls that Lisa Rene of Little Bits entered as her aphrodesiac in the Kitchen of Love event at Mele Cotte. I had to substitute an egg for the tofu because I can't eat soy. These were so darn tasty that my mom and I sat there and just kept eating them. I would say they'd be perfect to bring to a party, but make sure it's a party where you know no one has nut allergies. These little tasty bites were delicious and I totally forgot to make the dipping sauce. These lovely beauties seem to me to be very low carb for those of you who watch that kind of thing and are very high in protein and good fats. It's an appetizer you can feel good about eating.
So those are the recipes I made off other blogs this week. I'll try to post on a regular basis other recipes I find from other blogs. Don't worry I have a whole lot of them I'm eager to try!
