I wanted to share with you all my New Years Eve and Winter Classic Menu!! Go Blues!!
interesting because everyone loves Syberg's sauce. I wonder if it's different when using it at home versus ordering it at the restaurant? Hmm. I bought an electric skillet for this and I'm in love with it. It was so easy to use and so easy to clean up. I may start using this for everything. The temperature was easy to set and consistent throughout the whole cook time. I can't do that with my stove top!! I'll give this recipe a thumbs up.
Northeast - Chicken
up in the trash, which is really sad since I spent my hard earned money on this. I guess it was bound to happen eventually... maybe I can try eating it while drinking? Nah I don't think that would work. Anyone have an idea? I may just endure it. I do love these pita chips.
Thumbs way, way down.
West - Appetizer - Dip
could be way wrong on that one!) They were delicious for sure. I used Land Shark as the beer of choice (ya know, to make it more beach like), and opted not to add fresh lime slices or salt on the rim. The one thing I would change for next time, I'd want to strain the lime juice before mixing the ingredients. I hated that once I got to the bottom of the glass it was full of pulp. Gah, pulp! Other than that, this drink was delicious and I would definitely make it again!
Midwest - Drink
would normally make it. Yes, it uses Velveeta, but instead of Rotel, it used green chilies and pimentos as the main ingredient. Sounds really weird, but it was strangely really good. Who would have thought to put some diced pimentos into Queso dip? Not me, but thanks Taste of Home cookbook for helping me realize this geniusness. I would definitely make this again.
Thumbs way, way up.
Southwest - Appetizer - Dip - Cheese
Pancakes are one of my favorites for breakfast. One thing I'm not a fan of is that by the time you get through the whole bowl of batter, the pancakes are cold. But that's just something I deal with. This recipe brings us Swedish Pancakes. Though they look like normal pancakes that we all know and love, these are much thicker and not as sweet. Put some fruit on top though, and it's still pretty good. The recipe itself is easy to make, and word of advice, they cook way more evenly without a greased pan. I'm glad that I got the chance to make and
Thumbs to da side
Midwest - Breakfast
Did you hear about the angry pancake? He just flipped.
Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
This was even easier than the pudding. Toss pumpkin seeds in sauce and spice and bake in the oven. That's all there is to it!
Thumbs up for the easiness (they are pretty good too!)
Midwest - Appetizer
I'm not going to lie to you, this recipe is not in my cookbook. Why did I make it you ask? Well, I pulled up the wrong "Banana Pudding" recipe on my phone while grocery shopping and decided to just go with it. As usual, pudding recipes aren't difficult at all. I layered some finished pudding with Nilla wafer, Reddi Whip, and some fresh banana slices.
One thing I would try different is using milk instead of sweetened condensed milk. It was just way too sweet for me. But the finished product
Dessert - Fruit
Southern Pimento Cheese Spread
Pimento Cheese spread has been one of my favorite dips for a long time now. 1. Because it's super easy with only three ingredients and 2. It's cheese based. So when I saw this recipe in my cookbook I had to make it toute de suite.
Remember that Stuffing I made last weekend? Well I took the reject sourdough pieces, baked them in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes, and used them to dip into the cheese spread. Pretty delicious if I do say so myself. Thumbs Up
