Weekly Recipe Roundup

I feel like I'm letting you all down by only posting a couple recipes at a time, but I must admit I'm enjoying the new game plan. Simple is good and while I wouldn't call my menu simple, it is a step back for me and I have a feeling in a few short months I'm going to appreciate the change even more!

Some recipes are new and still very easy. This Creamy Cajun Chicken and Mushroom Pasta is one of those. Wes, nor I could really determine where the "cajun" came into play but we both agreed the dish was tasty nonetheless. I subbed 1/2 and 1/2 in place of the heavy cream and it was undetectable. You could easily add other veggies, such as spinach, asparagus, or even broccoli without harming the integrity of the recipe.

My week wouldn't be complete without at least one dessert. Lately I haven't been able to get enough apple pie. I decided since I had never made one, I'd give it a try. I found this Sour Cream Apple Pie recipe from All You (a Southern Living publication) and decided it was the winner. I didn't have a full cup of sour cream so I replaced about 2/3 of it with plain yogurt. While the pie is certainly good and more than edible, I wouldn't consider it the perfect Apple Pie recipe. I realize this is a category like chocolate chip cookies where there are lots of opinions and just like cc cookies, there are a ton of recipes out there waiting to be tried. I'll try another but I plan to wait several weeks!

  1. Mmm, that pasta looks addicting! Sorry the pie didn't wow you though - I'm still looking for the perfect apple pie recipe too :)
