Add that to the menu!

I've been doing what seems like a LOT of new recipes so far this year! I've even got one in the oven right now, and if it turns out, I'll let you in on the sweet surprise! It seems like I'm going overboard on my goal of at least one new recipe a week, or maybe I can just look at it as "stocking" up for if I miss a week or two when the baby comes this summer! Foodgawker.com and Pinterest.com have become my new best friends in this arena and are an endless supply of yummy ideas.

I mostly just want to document these for my own rememberance sake so I can look back and remember the ones that we really liked!


Paella with Chicken, Salmon and White Shrimp




Chinese Dumplings with Pork and Spinach (in place of cabbage)




Jambalaya with Shrimp & Sausage (I used Chili Powder in place of the Cayanne pepper and it was still SO SO SO spicy!)




Beef Stew with a Twist (I used V8 classic in this and it was actually a really good take on an old favorite!)




Corn & Potato Chowder




Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas (these were good, but could have used more veggies)




Black Bean Burgers (SOOOOOO Good you don't even miss that they aren't meat!)




Spaghetti Pie (We eat a LOT of spaghetti, so this was an interesting twist. Not amazing, but still good)




Cinnamon Rolls (Ah-MAZING! The intent was to make enough to freeze them, but we ate them so fast they never made it to the freezer! In fact, STOP READING AND GO MAKE THESE NOW!)




Beignets (who could forget these delicious treats! Really easy to make and unbelievably scrumptious!)



Alright, that's enough for now! I've got a new one on the menu for tonight and then a sweet treat in the oven now that hopefully will not be dissapointing!



Happy Eating!
