As many of you know, I love trying new recipes. In the past year, I’ve had the pleasure of trying some very good ones, which I share now in hopes that you’ll share yours with me.
Leek and Ham Quiche: Ian approved!
Ham Tetrazzini: Alexander thanked me for dinner and praised this one.
Slow-cooker lentils with chicken and potatoes: Melissa Bender turned me on to this.
Okra-Grits Casserole: The website says you’re making polenta, but you’re making grits, y’all!
Balsamic-Glazed Drumsticks: need more be said?
Pesto Chicken (in a crock pot): the picture on the website does not do this justice.
Crock Pot Ratatouille over Goat Cheese Polenta: the Polenta was the best part–feel free to top with other things or eat on its own.
Lohikeitto (Cream of Salmon Soup): This seemed to be the national dish of Finland when Alexander and I were there, so I had to learn to make it when we got home. Vanessa likes it so much that she had me make it for our Christmas Eve dinner. (I add about a tablespoon of butter at the very end–and more salt and pepper.)
Sriracha Chicken: I omitted the onions, but it was still yummy!
Cilantro Chicken with Peanuts: Vanessa got me hooked on this.
And then for dessert: Salted Caramel Pie!
You’ll notice that many of the recipes feature a slow cooker. It’s my favorite way of cooking. (And thanks to Ian, who gave me a new crock pot.)
Time to share–what did you make this year that I should try?
