The other day I made some Chicken Tortilla Soup. Its a favorite of mine (not so much for Damon, he's 'anti-chicken' for some reason!) and very suitable for the cooler fall days. I'm pretty sure I took this recipe from Rachael Ray and adapted it to suit my own tastes, if memory serves me correct. Its VERY tasty!
Then I cleaned out my pantry and found some coconut cookies I had bought at the Dollar Tree a while back. Knowing I needed to use them up asap, I figured they'd make a divine crust for a pie! So I crushed up those bad boys, added some melted butter, baked it in a pie pan, and let it cool. For a filling, I went to my old standby, homemade vanilla pudding! Only I gave it a twist, adding some rum extract, so it was a vanilla rum pudding.
The only thing that would have made it better was a dollop of lime curd!
And then I tried a new recipe! I needed something quick to make on Sunday since Damon had to work, so I went to my favorite 'famous' cooks website, Pioneer Woman, for some new ideas! This lady never disappoints!
I came across a recipe for a Sour Cream Noodle Bake. So easy! Cook some egg noodles. Toss w/sour cream and cottage cheese. Make a meat sauce. Put the noodles in the bottom of a pan and top with the meat sauce. Add cheese. Bake. Simple, no fuss.
And it was SO good! Even the cats wanted some!
It was obviously a dish worthy of a Sunday nap!
Anyone tried any new recipes? I'd love to hear about it!
