A Couple Cooks – Let the Cooking Begin!
Hello all! As I mentioned last Thursday, I am cooking through another food blog, A Couple Cooks. In this first week we tried the following:
The flavor of this was great, however I found it rather dry even though I had added some pasta water that wasn’t even called for in the recipe. If I try this again, I shall increase the sour cream and add even more pasta water. Next up
This was super good with zucchini, bell peppers, corn, corn tortillas, and black beans cooked in an enchilada sauce. Though I realize this is a vegetarian blog I’m cooking through, I just have to say that left over chicken shredded in there would be a perfect touch! Then on to
It’s been forever since I’ve prepared any fish en Papillote and I can’t for the life of me understand why! The fish cooks perfectly this way and clean up is a breeze
This was a super simple preparation. The fish is sitting on a bed of julienned carrots and topped with fresh herbs, garlic and lemon. On the potatoes I simply tossed some baby heirloom potatoes in olive oil, salt & pepper and roasted in the oven. Great meal! Finally for this week
I wanted to try this recipe because it calls for dried black beans, soaked overnight and then simply placed in the crock pot with the sautéed onions, garlic, portable mushrooms and canned tomatoes.
It took 13 hours to get the beans to the al dente state. Topped with cheddar cheese and green onion. I have to say this…it tasted fine but after slow cooking something for 13 hours I guess my expectation level is for something more than “tastes fine”, you know what I mean?
I’ll be back next week sharing more from A Couple Cooks. Stay tuned!
Hope your week is going well.
