Recipe Blogroll items for January 2010

Currently Listening to "The Call," Regina Spektor

Recipe Blogroll is BACK, baby!!


A little different this time. Instead of listing a million recipes I'd like to try like last time, I'm going to shoot for four to five a month.

{I'm a deadline person. I'll do better with a deadline.}

Then, during the month, I'll write a review of the yummy recipe, share any tips ::remember, I'm still VERY new to cooking haha::, and post a small award for the recipe writer because I appreciate cooking blogs SO much!!

If you have any recipe you'd like to suggest for my February Blogroll, please let me know in the comments or by e-mailing me at

Recipe Blogroll Items for January 2010!

  • Braised Chicken with Grapes: Posted by Healthy Delicious, this recipe uses grapes to help make some "fall-off-the-bone" chicken and, according to HD, some sauce that'll make you want to lick your plate. I'm in!

  • Linguine with Zucchini and Chickpeas: Real Simple Magazine, August 2009; This recipe was definitely intended for summer haha... but I can't resist! All the soups and stews we've been having... I'd love to have a light evening dinner like this soon. And hey, we'll just pretend it's warm :)linguine(Pic from Real Simple)
  • Applesauce Granola: Posted by Steph Chows, it's a recipe I've been looking for! I love granola... but it's so expensive! I would love to make it at home AND I think it would make a cute gift to give for friends at Valentine's Day!

  • Pot Sticker Pillows: Posted by Slim Shoppin, this recipe makes AMAZING looking pot stickers that are only 30 calories each!! Which... probably won't matter much when I eat about 100 of them, but still...

Here's to a January filled with new recipes!! Thanks you guys!

So now all I've got to do is cook these 5 before the 31st, and I'll post a review for each.
I'll try to write down any helpful hints I come up with along the way... I've only been cooking for about a year now and I still feel very, very new at it :)

Those Tiramisu Cheesecake bars look fantastic! Let me know how those go, I may have to try baking them

So glad to see your new posts! I've been doing a little cooking too (though not nearly as experimental as you!!) and I've found the little Everyday Food magazine by Martha Stewart to be very useful with simple and mostly easy recipes. (You're talking to a girl who can't make cookies well!). Another great source is, where yours truly is going to attempt a tollhouse cookie pie soon. Have you tried this site? Good luck with your new recipes!!

P.S. Thank little Ms. Notes from the Grove over there for helping me find your blog!
