So I’ve been slacking lately. Not on cooking, that I’ve actually been doing pretty good at, but at writing these posts. So today’s Dinner and a Movie post will have more recipes that normal. Some good, some bad, and some so-so. Overall, I’ve been having a lot of fun doing this. I just wish it wasn’t breaking the bank. The next recipes I do will probably be ones that I already have ingredients for or I know won’t cost me an arm and a leg at the store (normally I wouldn’t care, but I seem to be throwing away a ton of food). Here we go!
even had leftover ingredients because I couldn’t fit everything in my pan. So I made a second batch a couple days later. Guess what, still delicious. I would definitely recommend making this, but not if you’re looking for something quick and easy. Also, I want to share with you, I almost forgot to add the spices to the sauce. So, just a heads up, don’t forget this step! It wouldn’t be Tex-Mex without the brownish red sauce to give it a wonderful flavor. Thumbs up – make it
the juice from the orange. Anyway, back on track here. The end result was good, but it didn’t fill my house with a decadent aroma like most cakes and pies do. This saddens me. It tasted like a spice cake with blackberries in it. I like blackberries, but they are known to not be as sweet as any of the other berries. Still, it worked. I wouldn’t however, make this recipe again. Thumbs down – don’t make it!
with the way that the drink turned out, I’m just a beer kind of girl (see beer margaritas, I made these again on the same night because I loved them so). I’m going to say Thumbs up – make it! Because I know most people like them and this recipe comes out exactly how it should.
the one I own. Does that even matter? I’ll need to ask google, unless one of you lovely readers is a pie guru and knows the answer to this question. Please, Please comment!! I’m going to Thumbs Up – make it! Because it’s so unique (to me at least) of a pie. I mean, I’ve never heard of raisin pie before. Who would have thunk it?
half (if that would even be possible) but other than that it was great. The onions and peppers YUM and I used Velveeta as my cheese sauce YUM again. We had just enough ingredients to make two sandwiches, so I loved that I didn’t have to waste anything (except for the buns, I was going to use them to make an Italian sub sandwich, but totally dropped the ball and ended up throwing them away due to mold YUCK). Thumbs up – make it!!!!!!
It tasted just fine, good even, I just felt like it was a lot of work for mashed potatoes. It was kind of fun taking the skin off the potatoes though! Regardless, I think I’d stick with normal mashed potatoes for the next time I’d need them. Thumbs down – Don’t make it!
SIX recipes! Wow, I wonder how many I can afford to do for the next post? Stay tuned!
