Kitchen Failures & A Few Surprises

I've terrible about blogging about new recipes. We have tried so many over the last month and not one has made it to the blog. I'll try to be better in the future.

#1: Pastilla (A Moroccan Meat Pie): It was horrible! It was easy to make and ended up being edible, but definitely not something that we would try again.
#2: Kale & Parmesan Linguine: Again, another non-winner. It was easy to make and was healthy but just didn't have enough flavor.
#3: Stuffed Green Peppers: Loved these! They had sausage, garlic, onions, tomato sauce and a few other spices. They were really easy to make and different than what we normally have. Definitely a keeper.
#4: Breakfast Turnovers: Oh my gosh, these were amazing. The recipe called for zucchini shredded inside, but I had spinach so I used that instead. The outside is a frozen puff pastry and the inside contains: cheese, eggs, onions, garlic, bacon and spinach. These were amazing and you could really make them with anything you had on had. Definitely a keeper!
#5: Vegetable Chowder: Simply amazing. This is the best vegetable soup I have ever had and I'm tempted to say the best soup in general that I've ever had. Both Luke and I were excited to try it because it called for veggies that neither one of us has had. It called for turnips and parsnips as well as many others. I highly recommend this soup.

#6: Banana Pancakes with Almond Butter & Pure Maple Syrup: So yummy! I could go on and on about these. Amazing is all I'm going to say!


  1. Those breakfast pastries look amazing!!

  2. Could I get the recipe for the vegetable chowder? That sounds delicious.
