So. I’ve been a cooking FOOL since I finished the show and since the weather’s gotten cooler. Let’s talk about it, shall we?
(Reminder: All recipes linked here are also found on my Pinterest – Drooling board. Click the pictures for full recipes.)
(Fact: in just finding that link, I got sucked into Pinterest for another thirty minutes. BEWARE.)
Italian Chicken – meh, 4 stars
Pros: CRAZY easy. Good flavor. Filling. Very alfredo like in taste/consistency. Makes tons.
Cons: No one went back for seconds. It was okay .. I compare it to a trip to the Olive Garden when you have a gift certificate. You’re like, Well, it wasn’t horrible – and it was free, so.. It’s like that.
Would I make it again? Probably, but won’t be in heavy rotation.
Baked Spaghetti – 5 Stars
Pros: GREAT flavor profile. Makes tons. We each had seconds. Didn’t irritate my acid reflux.
Cons: A bit more complicated than, say, a slow cooker meal. But I imagine you could make this ahead of time.
Would I make it again? OH HELL YEAH.
Apply Directly to My Hips Dessert – 5 stars*
Pros: Everything good you can imagine in life is encapsulated in this one dessert. Imagine if you could eat an angel (who died of natural causes, obviously, except some communicable disease that would require burning of the carcass): it tastes like a deceased angel, y’all. THAT GOOD.
Cons: *smells so good you want to wait for it to cook the full time (50-55 minutes, in case you were wondering). If consumed half-cooked, it may give you salmonella. BUT IT WON’T DETER YOU.
Would I make it again? DOES A BEAR POO IN THE WOODS?
And now: the interactive portion of the post.
In this recipe below, it calls for “White Sauce Mix”. What in the fresh hell IS that? I bought everything for it but have NO idea what White Sauce Mix is, and it does not appear to be carried in my grocery store. I finally bought a packet of alfredo mix in the hopes that it is that. As such, I have not made this yet, but it is ready to happen.
