Now that I’ve officially eaten my weight in fun-sized candies (I’m looking at you, Twix) and the Halloween decorations have been packed away, I’m really excited to get back to cooking and eating some really good food. As many of you know, it has gotten really cold here in Minnesota and with that, I’ve tended toward comfort foods. I’m talking pastas, slow cooker burrito bowls, and everything drowning in melted cheese! I really can’t complain. For this week’s Good Food Reads, I’ve pulled together a bit of a random collection of recipes I’m hoping to make and share with my friends and family in the next few weeks. As usual, they are gathered from fellow bloggers, some magazines, and even inspired by my reading habits (see *** below!). I hope you find something that inspires you! Here are the links I’m loving this week:
Ok, first and foremost, I need to share this recipe sweet recipe from My Name is Yeh. I’d say the likelihood of me actually making these is slim to none because I don’t do well with crafty in general. But…I had to link to them because they are the cutest: Marzipan Challah Hedgehogs. Someone needs to make them ASAP and report back!
Pork and Polenta Bake. Another comfort food that’s perfect for these chilly November evenings. Talk about taking the classic midwestern casserole to a whole new level. Also, have you checked out our BBQ Chicken Mac & Cheese? Comfort food with a twist!
Love these recipes for Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup and Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup. Lower in sodium and with fresh ingredients, just in time for all that holiday baking!
Stuffed Chicken Thighs with Spinach and Goat Cheese. Oh man. I can’t wait to make this one. And serve them with these Buttermilk Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes. YES, please.
And finally, because I’m just finishing up her great memoir, Give A Girl A Knife, here’s Amy Thielen’s recipe for Classic Chicken and Wild Rice Hotdish.
That’s it for this week’s Good Food Reads, friend. A shorter list, perhaps, but hopefully you find some treasures. Happy Cooking!
