Recipe Review

This week was a mix of new recipes and recipes I’ve done before but revamped.

Linguini with Garlic and Mushroom from Simply Delicious

I made this pasta dish a while back and it was one of the easiest dishes. After coming home from vacation and noticing I had a nearly expired pack of fresh mushrooms, I remembered this recipe and made it for dinner Monday night. To change it up a bit I added a few handfuls of baby spinach, julienned sun dried tomatoes, and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese after adding the cream. The sweetness of the tomatoes made this pasta even more enjoyable than I had remembered it. I also made sure to use fresh squeezed lemon juice and used the entire lemon instead of just half. The best thing about this dish…it was even better left over for lunch the next day!

One Pot Lemon Pasta from Fudge Banana Swirl

I don’t think there is a recipe from Chenin Boutwell’s Fudge Banana Swirl that I have tried and not liked. All of her recipes are simple and delicious. This lemon pasta was nothing but that. I followed this recipe to the tee and wouldn’t change it! Perfection!

Grilled Chicken from The Pioneer Woman

Back in January I made PW’s Lemon Basil Penne with Grilled Chicken. I made it again two weeks ago. I realized after the second time that I REALLY like the marinade she makes for the chicken. This week I just made the marinade and grilled the chicken to pair with some potatoes and garlic bread. It marinades over night and makes for a yummy and moist chicken breast. It’s even good the next day. Very flavorful.

Honey Roasted Potatoes from My Tasty Treasures

In my last Recipe Review I talked about these honey roasted potatoes. They were AR’s favorite part of the meal that night. Last night I prepared this recipe with a little change. Instead of using red potatoes, I used sweet potatoes. I didn’t realize this recipe could get any better! The sweet potatoes were amazing! *Note: This time I also added the onions the recipe suggests but didn’t include last time…a nice addition to last night’s meal.
