This week I decided to try out a bunch of delicious looking recipes I’ve seen on the Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen blog. They’re definitely not as healthy as the recipes I usually make, but some of them are worth an extra run around the block.
Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce. Groan.– OK, if you’re going to use the word “groan” as part of your recipe name, it better be damn good. And this was just average. I mean it was good, but didn’t warrant the “groan.” Maybe it was a case of my expectations being too high? All I know is, I’m glad I bought the pre-roasted (cheaper) red peppers instead of doing all the work and paying the extra money to do it myself.
The Mushroom Soup– Of all the new Pioneer Woman recipes I made this week, this was by far my favorite. Very quick and easy to make and it was delicious! Nice mushroom flavor and the other ingredients complimented it nicely, especially the Parmesan.
Butter Chicken– This recipe had the most rave reviews from all the PW recipes I tried, but to me it was just so-so. Nothing special. Maybe it’d be better the next day, or maybe the sauce and such would go better on pasta than on rice. All I know is, I had a butt load of sauce leftover and I didn’t save it for later.
