No Excuse November Day 8: Tasty Tuesday

Welcome to Tasty Tueday! This week, it was hard to pick a favorite tasty dish because I had a few!

The winner was the Blue Apron dish One-Pot Tomato & Parmesan Risotto with Crispy Prosciutto. I had never cooked Risotto before, and my husband wasn’t sure he had ever eaten it, so this was a first for us both!

No Excuse November Day 1: Tasty Tuesday

Happy November 1st and day 1 of No Excuse November!

We will continue with Tasty Tuesday during November.

Last week, our most tasty meal was a copycat Zuppa Toscana. Here is a link to the recipe I used with a few tweeks:

Netties version of CopyCat Zuppa Toscana

The tweeks I made are as follows:

I used ground hot italain sausage, kale instead of spinach, added Mrs. Dash Italian seasoning and added crushed red pepper flakes. I served with cheese toast.

This soup is my husbands favorite at the restraunt, and he said my version was actually better. The leftovers were even better.

If you try this reciepe, please let me know and share any tweeks you make!

Blogtober Day 18: Tasty Tuesday

Hi All! This week, my husband and I had doctor appointments (annual physicals). Afterward, we usually do Happy Hour at BJ’s Brewhouse because they have great specials and yummy appetizers. This time, we decided to try something new, so we went to Happy Hour at Mother’s (in Westchase, Fl). We decided to order two, not as bad for us apps and one bad for us. So we got their Dry Rub Wings, Buffalo chicken flatbread, and poutine. Everything was delicious! The wings were the second best I’ve had (Glory days are my faves), the Flatbread was the perfect balance of heat and relief, and the potuine was rich and savory (the kind you just need a few bites of). All the perfect bar foods!

Do you have a favorite Happy Hour spot that has food specials, too? What are your favorite bar foods?

Blogtober Day 11: Tasty Tuesday

So what did I eat that was tasty this week…………

This week, I finally decided to try pizza crusts made with canned chicken breast! This viral trend intrigued me, but I was hesitant. My husband was concerned it would hold up toppings, and so was I.

After looking over several recipes, I decided to give it a go. I used a 12.5 ounes can of premium chicken breast – drained, 1 large egg, about 3 tablespoons of egg white, and about 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese.

1. In a mixing bowl, I whisked the egg with the egg whites, added the chicken breast, and then used the whisk to shredd it.

2. Next, I added the parmesan cheese and combined everything well.

3. I dumped the mixture on parchment paper, topped with another sheet of parchment, and rolled out into a ractangle (the size of a cookie sheet).

4. I removed the top parchment and moved the bottom parchment with crust to a cookie sheet.

5. I baked on 400 for 8 minutes and then switced to broil for about 2 minutes (just keep an eye on it).

6. I then topped it with sauce, turkey pepperoni, and mozeralla cheese.

7. Baked for 10 minutes at 400, then broil for 2 minutes (again, keep an eye on it).

My husband and I were both pleasantly surprised. The crust was a perfect texture and thickness. The flavor was spot on. This will defianlty be added to the meal rotation in our house. This was quick, easy, tasty, and all ingredients we usually have on hand.

If you have been hesitant to try, like we were, I encourage you to give it go!

Blogtober Day 4: Tasty Tuesday

Tasty Tuesday is a day for us to share something tasty we had the previous week. This can be while eating out, a new recipe, or a twist on an old favorite.

Friday, I had taken chicken breast out but couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do with it. My mind kept going to something with bacon and ranch, but I also wanted something with a little spice. I cut up the chicken into 1/2 to 1-inch cubes and sautéed in olive oil, seasoned with cilantro-lime, chipotle powder, salt and cracked black pepper. I added a can of drained & rinsed pinto beans, a cup of frozen mixed veggies, a 1/2 cup instant rice and a 1/2 cup water. I brought to a boil then lowered too medium low until all the water was absorbed (about 20-25 minutes). I served it topped with 2 pieces of bacon crumbled on top, a splash of lite ranch dressing, and a sprinkle of cheese. It was very flavorful with a heat that builds but doesn’t overpower.

Do you like to experiment when you cook, play it safe, or don’t really like to cook? Do you follow recipes exactly or always make changes?
