Recipes From Other Blogs

One of the blogs I go to for inspiration and great recipe ideas is Closet Cooking. Kevin knows how to photograph food in a way that would make the pickiest eater drool. What I love the most is how he writes his recipes. His directions are numbered and are clear and concise (the best part). I've bookmarked several of his recipes but I recently tried this one for Shrimp and Pineapple Teriyaki. It came together so quickly and although mine didn't have quite the glaze that his did, it was very tasty. I served it over brown rice and we had our favorite Bok Choy Salad on the side. Have you tried that yet? What are you waiting for? It's fabulous!

This is Kevin's photo, not mine. See, doesn't he take scrumptious looking pictures?! No need for me to upload my picture when his is so much better!

Last night we tried another fellow blogger's, Foodie Tots, recipe. She and I share a similar philosophy of food and I'm always anxious to see what healthy dish she has concocted. I thought this Hearty Winter Baked Ziti was great but Wes thought it smelled better than it tasted. What he smelled was the cheese baking on the top of the dish, however the cheese was not throughout the dish because it was intended to be healthy. I love that both carrots and kale were hidden in the dish which would be perfect for those picky eaters! I don't have one of those but I'm preparing myself for the next time when I just know I won't be so lucky. I made the dish exactly as directed but I did divide it into 2 casserole dishes and froze 1 before cooking it in the oven (freezing before the noodles are fully cooked will hopefully make for less soggy noodles).

Again, her picture, not mine. The one drawback to my new camera is that it's a little cumbersome to tote to work just to download pictures from dinner. I will make the sacrifice eventually, I promise.
