Cooking, farmers market trips

Sunday edition of What’s Cooking

Due to being busy with my oldest daughter’s theatre performance yesterday, I’m posting a Sunday edition of What’s Cooking.  Unfortunately we didn’t stop at the farmer’s market  since I wanted to make sure she got plenty of rest (they did two performances).

Baked Rigatoni with Tiny Meatballs

Baked Rigatoni with Meatballs – After the good response to Smitten Kitchen’s apple pancakes I thought I would try another recipe.  This was a failure for it didn’t taste like I thought it would.. IT wasn’t the recipe but my error — I used vanilla flavored soy milk and vegetarian frozen meatballs.  The dish had a very sweet taste to it which I assume was the milk.  I will probably try the recipe again with different milk and a smaller amount so food doesn’t get wasted.  I can say that when I’ve bombed recipes before something helped to eat it all and it just didn’t work this time 😦  Once again it was my fault not the recipe for I love me some Smitten Kitchen!!!

Inside Out Turkey Cheeseburgers

The August edition of All You magazine had a recipe for this burger and so I tried it out — SUCCESS — which was great after my failure at the pasta dish. So basically when you make your burgers you want to mold a hole to put shredded cheese and then seal the patty. I used ground turkey and shredded cheddar with some salt/pepper and dijon mustard to season the meat. The oven baked burgers were served with some oven baked fries and the yellow beans from the farmer’s market.

Texas French Toast Bake

I actually made this recipe awhile back BUT never posted it.  My daughters asked for so I was happy I could now post it.  Can we say this Texas French Toast Bake is YUMMY and quite EASY, and it comes from blog Chew Out Loud.  Due to little K having a cinnamon allergy I substituted brown sugar which makes it extra sweet.  And since I typically have leftovers, I can say that it tastes good reheated the next day.

Taco style egg rolls

These bad boys are not a new recipe but a twist on a family favorite – taco bundles.  I had extra bean mixture and egg roll wraps so thought I would experiment and worked great.  The girls liked the spin on the bundles and were asking for more 🙂

Did you try any new recipes this week?
