It has been several weeks since I planned my Magazine Adventure from Cuisine At Home Magazine.
I did not complete everything on my list, but I did manage to make several of the recipes. Below you will find the list of the recipes and my thoughts on each that I tried. I did a Recipe Review on one of the recipes, and you will see the link below the description of that recipe.
4-Mediterranean Chicken Calzones I was really excited about this one, but it was a bust. I gave it a 2/10 and ended up throwing most of it away. I don’t think the problem was the recipe; I think the problem was the pizza dough. The filling was tasty, but the dough was stiff and thin. I will not make this again.
It was not pretty before baking and even less so after baking.
5-Hashbrown and egg breakfast cups. I would make this one again. It was an easy recipe, and they are great for reheating for a snack or breakfast. I did use diced hash browns, although I think the suggested shredded hash browns would have been better. I did add 5 minutes to the cooking time. I gave this recipe an 8/10. It was very good. I will probably do a recipe review blog post on this one.
I did do a recipe review on this recipe, and here is the link with a printable recipe.
6-Chicken Florentine Soup I must say this is a very good recipe but time-consuming. I gave it a 7.5 on my cooking scale. It did not get an 8 or above because it took a lot of time. Like I said, it is really good, and I think if you decide to give it a try, you should serve it was crackers or a slice of crusty bread.
8-Cheesy Onion Soup-This soup was good. I would give it a 7/10 on my Cooking Scale. It was reasonably easy to make. I found the consistency thick, and I added more broth than it called for. I had the soup as leftovers the next day, adding more broth. It was good, but I will not make it again.
If you make this recipe watch your croutons. Mine burnt pretty quickly, and I had to make a second batch.
10-Marinated Mushroom Salad with Grape Tomatoes This recipe was very good. I gave it a 7.5/10 on my cooking scale. I will probably not make it again, but I did enjoy it. I went to 3 grocery stores looking for the needed ingredients. I never could find the cremini mushrooms. I went with baby Bella mushrooms.
Now it is time to choose my next Magazine Adventure!
Happy Cooking and Baking!
