My monthly(ish) reporting of the delicious or not so delicious things I made in December and January. If the recipe is mine, meaning I made it up, I will link to my cooking blog, heidikins cooks. If the recipe is the brainchild of someone else, I’ll link there instead. See previous posts on my culinarious adventures here.
Spinach Dip: I have started adding in quite a bit of Greek Yogurt to the sour cream/mayo base of this dip, it is marvelous. If you want to spoon it onto sliced cucumbers, or red bell pepper sticks, or sliced jicama you can get your lower-carb “resolution-friendly” version.
Pomegranate Cupcakes with POM buttercream: Fail. The frosting was delicious, but the cupcakes were disgusting. I threw every single one away. They were fluffy but tasted like cardboard. Do not attempt.
Spaghetti Squash with Chicken (Pork Chops), Peppers, Artichoke Hearts & Sun-dried Tomatoes: This was amazing. Granted, I didn’t make it exactly as written, I added some sliced zucchini because I had it, and some mushrooms, and a handful more spice (oregano, rosemary, dried mustard, Emeril’s Essence), and I doubled the artichoke hearts, and I used sliced pork chops instead of sliced chicken because I don’t like chicken. But, this was a delicious meal that I will definitely be making again. At least, some variation of it. Also, if you have never tried spaghetti squash I would recommend it. Roast it for 15 minutes longer than you think you need to, and definitely add the water to the roasting pan. The “noodles” were so deliciously tender and provided an excellent base to all the vegetables. Delicious.
