Recipes to Try

Retro-Cooking-Mom-GraphicsFairy

I read a lot (A LOT) of blogs, some frugal, some cooking, some crafting, some book based. Since I love to cook, I end up with a ton of recipes that sound like something I’d like to try. But I don’t have a great system for keeping track of those recipes. I bookmark some, I save them in my feed reader, I do all sorts of things. I’m going to try something new and list recipes I’d like to try here each month and maybe set a goal to MAKE those recipes within a month or two of noticing them. I’ll try to keep the list to about 10 recipes and I want them to be primarily main dishes or side dishes — my eye is caught by desserts, but I don’t need to make a ton of those!! Here is my list for February:

  1. Fish Pie and Buttery Greens
  2. Sausage Hot Pot
  3. Arroz con Pollo
  4. Beet Salad Vinegret
  5. French Onion Mini-Meatloaves
  6. Pelmeni
  7. Chicken in Red Wine Vinegar Sauce
  8. Chocolate Rice Pudding
  9. Stir-Fry Beef Noodles
  10. Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

I think that all of these recipes sound great for winter eating, especially the kind of mellow winters we have here. I’m looking forward to trying out the one dessert recipe I chose, too — I love rice pudding and am eager to find out how this chocolate version tastes.

I’m curious — do you have a method that works well for tracking recipes you want to try out? Please share!

  1. Mmm, chocolate rice pudding. I am the worse about organizing my recipes or even following them. I have always cooked using what I was hungry and what I remembered it should taste like. I need a method of keeping track of my hair-brained ideas. If I want to try something new, I print it out. What a waste of paper!

    1. I cook a little like you do, which is kind of why I do retroactive meal plans. I know what I have on hand and what needs to be used up and go from there. I can access most online recipes using my tablet, so that makes it easy for me to not print anything until I’m sure it’s a keeper. The harder part is remembering all the different things I want to try!!
