Confession time. I love green beans. Now this may not seem like a confession. However, I must admit I love canned green beans. You know, those soggy, lifeless green beans? Yeah, I love those. I know, they aren’t even really flavorful. So, I wanted to explore the green bean more. I mean, I love canned green beans, so fresh ones had to be even better right? Right. Fresh green beans are 100% more delicious than the canned ones. I know, I know. You can say, “I told you so,” now.
I am all about easy, healthy recipes that anyone can duplicate. I absolutely love recipes that seem too easy to be true but aren’t. This post is exactly that. Who ever heard of bread that doesn’t require any sort of machine to make? Also, there aren’t any weird ingredients needed in this recipe. There are just standard bread ingredients needed in this recipe. I promise you, this bread is insanely easy to make, and it is more delicious than anything you can buy in a store.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Instead of posting a recipe related to something romantic or something Valentine-y, I promised you a post on breadsticks. Now, this may not seem like a post fit for Valentine’s Day. However, these breadsticks are the Crock Pot Pot Pie Soup’s soul mate. These breadsticks are the soup’s one true love. And I love these breadsticks. What could be better than a post based on a love between foods, two foods I happen to love together?
Macaroni and cheese. I am willing to bet that most people recognize those words together. Actually, those are two of my favorite things combined together into one delicious creation. Do you know what makes macaroni and cheese even better? Placing it into a muffin pan and baking it so it is in a portable, cup form. Oh, and adding a buttery, crunchy crust to it takes it over the edge.
One of the best parts of eating at Mexican restaurants is the free chips and salsa. I will never be able to turn down chips and salsa. However, the chips at the restaurants aren’t all that great for you. They are often fried. So, I wanted to implement my oven fried foods idea on the tortilla chip. I have to tell you, these were better than the restaurant tortilla chips and way better than the bagged chips at the store.
Have you ever eaten something and felt it needed a sauce? Not in the sense that the food was dry and a sauce would add moisture, but that the food would just be above and beyond with a sauce of some sort on it? This blog is best friends with the Baked Zucchini Fritters from yesterday. The fritters were amazing, no lying. However. this sauce took those fritters out of this world. I love this sauce, and I’m betting you will too.
If you have followed my blog, you know I love fried foods. However, I don’t like the way they make me feel. I’m not a fan of biting into food and grease shoots out of it. Disgusting. So, I’ve been working on baking “fried” food in the oven. Why fry food when you can easily bake it with the same, if not better, results? Every oven fried food I’ve made has come out very delicious, and this recipe is no exception.
