The first week of working my way through my Pinterest Recipes I Need to Try folder was an unqualified success. All three recipes were delicious and will be made repeatedly.
Honey Garlic Chicken
First up last week was Honey Garlic Chicken.and it was incredibly delicious.
My husband was working late the night I tried the recipe and I brought him a bowl in his office. He enjoyed it so much, he snuck out of the office for seconds and couldn’t and hasn’t, stopped raving about the meal. It was spicy and sweet. The best part about the meal was it’s simplicity. We don’t have Chinese delivery where we live and this meal will easily satisfy the craving for Chinese food. Also, the recipe will lend itself easily to adaption for pork or beef and the inclusion of vegetables.
Salted Pretzel Bread
Pretzel rolls are a favorite in this house but I’ve never found a recipe that tempted me to make. So it was with caution I made the second recipe this week, Salted Pretzel Rolls.
The recipe called for brown sugar instead of white and honestly, I’m leery of savory bread recipes that call for brown sugar. My misgivings were misplaced, the rolls were excellent if a bit too salty for my tastes. The recipe made eight rolls which were a little large, the size per roll can easily be reduced and still make excellent rolls for sandwiches. The recipes will also easily make traditional pretzels and pretzel bites for a party.
I made Golden Oreos for dessert for dinner at my parents house on Sunday. To be honest, initially I found the filling far too sweet. However, the filling mellowed as the day progressed and thus I recommend making the filling ahead of time.
I’ll admit I didn’t follow the recipe precisely. I didn’t chill the batter ahead of time which would have resulted in more uniformly shaped and flatter like the commercial version. However, I like the homemade look of cookies and the irregularity. I will also admit, I like the cookie straight up without the filling.
I have already promised to make these again in a couple of weeks. And judging by the audience above that I had while frosting the centers, the herd wouldn’t mind if I shared with them as well.
