This post is long overdue but under the philosophy of better late than never, it is hereby submitted. What can I say holiday preparations, long weekends, good books, and Dragon Age Inquisition all conspired to suck the desire to write from me. Cannot promise that will change between now and the first of the year but I know everyone else is equally as busy.
Tender Potato Bread
Who doesn’t love a good potato bread? Can’t say I can easily resist a slice of potato bread so when I ran across this recipe on Pinterest I was excited.
This recipe was far too convoluted and unnecessarily complex to be worth making again. The bread was good and went well with split pea soup but it wasn’t worth the effort or the mess. Not to mention it made far more bread than our household consumes in week.
Stuffed Pepper Soup
I love stuffed peppers, always have to be honest. My husband, not such a fan however and thus I make them so rarely that I can’t recall the last time I stuffed peppers and savored their flavors. Imagine my interest when I ran across this intriguing recipe for stuffed pepper soup. It was fabulous.
All the flavor of the original in a bowl! My husband didn’t hate it, didn’t necessarily love it, but he’d eat it again. Best of all, it is quick, makes even better leftovers, and uses things from our garden and pantry that we always have on hand. This may not be frequently in the “dinner rotation” but it will be made again.
Cranberry Orange Cream Cheese Pound Cake
As good as the stuffed pepper soup was, it paled in comparison to this recipe for pound cake.
Now I have a confession to make, not one hundred percent sure this is the right recipe but it is fairly close. The cake was incredible. It is very moist, very tender, and didn’t last long at all. If you love cranberries, or like me and horde them in the freezer for use throughout the year, this will become an easy go-to recipe.
Future installments are postponed until after New Year’s but come January I will be back with weekly installments of Pinterest recipe testing.
