As a follow-up to my Quilty Weekend Road Trip post, I wanted to share a few recipes that were part of the weekend. Isn't it always so much fun when you can bring home a new recipe from someplace? I think so!
As an example....remember last spring when my sister and I traveled to Arkansas on our Sister Trip? We brought home a delicious chicken salad recipe and a cookie recipe we enjoyed in P. Allen Smith's kitchen...unfortunately, I couldn't post that particular recipe since it's copyrighted in his cookbook. But the recipes below I can post.
When my friend Christine and I ate at Center Street Grill last week, I ordered their Ham and BLT Sliders and the Soup of the Day which was Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup...mildly spicy: I mentioned to one of my neighbors whom I visited right afterwards that I just loved that soup. Anne told me she had the recipe and made a copy right then and handed it to me. I'll post her hand-written copy below....I think I'd add something extra to spice it up a bit when I make it. Second Recipe:
That same night after enjoying homemade pizza at my friend Chris' house, she brought out a beautiful platter of cookies and said they were Lisa Bongean's Self-Frosting Oatmeal cookies which she had recently posted on her blog! They were excellent!
I made some this week as shown below but, unfortunately, had more of a fail than a success...both in looks and taste! But I'll try again soon...because I have a Cookie Monster living here who not only gave me this cookie jar, but he would also like me to keep that cookie jar FULL! Third Recipe:
Chris always serves the most delicious breakfasts when I visit her! Here's a Cranberry Nut Dessert recipe that she served for breakfast one morning last week. I'm going to try this recipe, too! Hopefully, you can read this:
For dinner one evening Chris had planned to make Chicken Piccata. This is a new recipe for me. It calls for a jar of brined capers...something I've never purchased in my life!
As it turned out, we were both so tired from late nights and the quilt show that we opted for eating out instead of making this meal. But...I have the recipe to try sometime.
I took a photo with my phone (what an easier way to copy down a recipe these days!), but you can also click the link above....same recipe:
