The Pinterest reviews – Entrees January 16, 2012

Posted by Judy in Food.

No preamble today, just going to launch right in with the reviews.

Baked spaghetti in garlic bread

This was ridiculously good, it is now a staple at our house.  I used homemade bread rather than the Rhodes loaf, but use whatever is convenient for you.  Try it, it’s really delish!

Sweet potato quesadillas

Super easy, quick and very good for you.  Plus, the kids loved them.  Win- win!

Salsa verde bakes eggs and hash

This recipe got a resounding “meh” from me.  The rest of the fam thought it was good, but as I recall, it was a bit of work and there wasn’t much to show for it at the end.

I’ve always made enchiladas a particular way, the way my mom taught me, and I love them.  This recipe comes in at a VERY close second.   They are easy, you make your own sauce and you can fill them with whatever you want and make as much or as little as you want.

Tortilla and black bean pie

I really should make this recipe once a week . . . that’s how good it is, and it’s super easy.  (Are you seeing a theme here?   I have a great appreciation for easy and delicious recipes!)    The use of a springform pan here is genius.  If you don’t have one, don’t worry, you can just use foil paper like I did here:

Sweet and sour tofu stir fry

I’ve made alot of stir fry in my life, this was definitely not the best one.  In fact, it was quite bad.  Maybe the fact that I had to make my own soy sauce (I didn’t have any!) had something to do with it.  Somehow, I don’t really think that real soy sauce would have salvaged this recipe.  It really tasted nothing like sweet and sour, at least not the sweet and sour that you can get at the Chinese restaurants. On the plus side, I got to play with my new KitchenAid attachments.

Pumpkin mac n’ cheese

Here’s another recipe that I didn’t particularly like.  I love me some homemade mac ‘n cheese, but I didn’t particularly care for the pumpkin.  The kids loved it, so I let them gobble it up since it was somewhat healthy.  On second thought, they must not have liked it too much as they haven’t ever requested to have it again.

Apple and sage quesadillas

I liked the premise of this recipe . . . .although DH doesn’t like fruits in his entrees, I don’t mind it.  I didn’t like the big chunks of sage.  I would have preferred to have the flavor from the sage without having to bite into a sage leaf.  Dried, rubbed sage is probably the way I’d go next time.

That’s it for today, folks.  Got any recipe ideas for me?  Leave me a comment, I’m always game to try something new!

I made the black bean pie yesterday and it was great. I’m thinking of replacing some of the beans with sauted veggie and topping the finished product with homemade rznch dressing or avocados/guac.

Great idea to add some sauteed veggies! I might have to try that next time.
