Well we have been cooking over here but have gotten a little behind in posting about the recipes we have been making. My mom was here for a while in December and we made all these together.
First up are the sugar cookies. Summer and my mom made these one day while I was out of town. My mom said they turned out great and made a delicious sugar cookie although maybe there was a bit too much flour in them.
Next was the Spinach and Feta Pasta. I made a few little changes with this, leaving out the mushrooms and substituting parmesan for the feta. It was really tasty and easy to cook up. I also added some chicken to bulk it up a bit. We thought it tasted a lot like Chicken Catactori.
The Pineapple Bacon Burgers with Sweet Potato fries was another really good meal. This wasn’t something super new but everyone enjoyed it. We cooked both the burgers and the pineapple on the grill and also added some pepper jack cheese. We cooked the sweet potato fries in the microwave for a few minutes to start the cooking process before putting them in the oven.
The last meal we made was the Pineapple-Ginger Steak with Stuffed Blue Cheese Potatoes. We used Skirt Steak instead of flank and only marinated it for a few hours but it was nice and flavorful! The potatoes with pretty easy to make and were a big hit! We didn’t have any blue cheese so we substituted some feta cheese, which worked just fine. We liked these so much we decided to make them again for Christmas Dinner! Another delicious meal!!
