- #26: Tortellini en Brodo Florentine -- I loved this and would make it all the time except that my husband won't eat spinach (he was out of town for a week so I could eat all the spinach I wanted)
- #84: Spaghettini with Quick Bolognese Sauce -- my husband made this and it was tasty. He used mini penne instead of the spaghettini.
- #278: Barcelona Chicken with Rice and Spanish Olives -- this was good, and I would make it again, but it needed some spices added to it. It used quick-cooking rice which was a new ingredient for me. My Cooking Light page-a-day calendar had a similar recipe later in the month that used the same technique with shrimp and quick-cooking rice but added spices. I liked the calendar recipe more, but will continue to play with this base recipe as I think it has a lot of potential and was super fast to put together.
- #301: Hamburger Stroganoff -- this dish is a standard in our house, but our usual recipe comes from 365 Ways to Cook Hamburger (recipe #192). This version was a little different (more creamy) than the usual one. It was good and I would use either recipe next time, depending on which book I came across first.
I'm linking this up with Cook it Up! and Weekend Cooking
I love spinach, too! And tortellini, but haven't found a gluten-free version of it yet. I've been using my slow cooker a lot since getting a new one before Christmas, and plan to use it again this coming week.ReplyDelete
I love spinach! Glad you got a few days with it. Sounds like there are some good, basic recipes in that bookReplyDelete
I really don't use my slow cooker enough, so I'll be interested in how you do with the entertaining cookbook this month.
I just saw the Fix It and Forget It at my local library bookstore. I think I'll pick it up.ReplyDelete
Haha!! I do the same when my husband goes out of town. Except my meals consist more of cereal or ice cream when I don't have to cook for anyone else. ;)ReplyDelete
I'll be curious what you think of Fix it and Forget it! I've always seen those books but sadly my crockpot gets neglected unless it's for something soupy.
