The Week of Untested Recipes

I just realized that I have included four new, untested recipes in my menu this week. Yeesh. What am I thinking? Two of them are untasted AND untested, and two of them I have actually tried (and I enjoyed them too!) but have never made them myself.

The Unbelievable Chicken and the Chicken Pot Pies are the two untasted/untested recipes. I found the Unbelievable Chicken on allrecipes.com and it received great reviews. The Chicken Pot Pies I saw made on the Martha Stewart show last week. Since I don't need to make four pies for our little family, I'll be making adjustments to the recipe. After I do that, I'll be sure to post my version here.

The two tasted recipes are the Broccoli Cheese Soup and the Breadsticks. The breadstick recipe was passed to me from a friend in my ward (thanks Robyn!) who got it from another friend in our ward. The Broccoli Cheese Soup is from a bakery/restaurant called Panera. We fell in love with this place while we were in California, and unfortunately there are no Panera Bakeries in Utah. (Oregon and Washington have some though!) Their Broccoli Cheese Soup was our all-time favorite, so I'm hoping this clone recipe comes close. I'll let you all know.

Have a great week everyone! I'm so glad you all take time to visit my blog. I'm quite happy to share the yummy recipes I come across each week. Keep cooking, and be brave and try something new this week!



note: I just added the recipe for my version of Pasta Milano. It's in the list of Week 10 recipes,
just scroll to the bottom. I had to take 3 different recipes and combine them to get this one, and I tried to simplify it too. The recipe looks more complicated than it really is!

i did try something new - the Lemon Yogurt Cake and it was so very good. Thanks Andy.
We had Salmon for dinner today and it was yummy. Have I given you my marinade for salmon?

Bravo, mom! I'm glad you liked it. No, I don't have your marinade for Salmon. I would like to get it though, since the salmon-grilling season is upon us :-)
