I’ve been spreading my wings a little bit in the cooking department (read: kitchen). As I have leftovers and try recipes, I’ve been using pieces of recipes and creating my own dinners. It’s nothing fancy, it’s not like I’m throwing spices around at will but I am making things work for me. I did have a few full, original P-Dub recipes I tried this week.
I have to admit I used canned sweet potatoes in a pinch here but it still worked. Overall, liked these. Definitely satisfies any sweet tooth!
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
This one COULD have been outstanding save my incompetence. When I was dissolving the brown sugar in the butter, I had the heat up too much and it burned a large section of the sugar. I was too ignorant/naive to know it was really burning, not just getting brown and I should just to turn the burner down. Also, I’ve never been a fan of this cake and didn’t know how important the cherries were. Why I made this and don’t even eat it? I don’t know. It appears I’m a little addicted to cooking and I had gotten a few cans of pineapple for free. What can I say?
Blue Cheese Sauce – except not
I posted on this before but I changed it up a little and thought it was worthy of note. I used some gorgonzola cheese instead of blue cheese and poured it over Tilapia instead of Steak. Yum. Yum, yum, yum. Even Emma asked for more.
We also had some repeats this week…chicken pot pie, lasagna and homemade pizza and calzones (different stuffing than Cowboy Calzones) and then used leftover pizza dough to make dessert pizza. Good stuff!
