Random Cooking Exploits

Over the last few weeks I have been cooking random meals and little treats. Some I remembered to take pics of, others not so much. Here are the random things I've mad:-

Eric loves white chocolate and peanut butter and I just happened to have candy melts of each! I also happened to have a reese's pb cup shaped candy mold. What happens when you put those together? Your own homemade white chocolate peanut butter cups!


This next pic of of an Indian Chickpea Salad with Ginger I found blog surfing here. It sounded like something I would enjoy so I picked up some fresh ginger, the rest of the goodies I needed and whipped it up in a few minutes. Man was it good! It was even better the next day after letting everything settle in the juices.

Look at those colors- mmmmm

Next up is is some quick and easy breakfast egg cups. I had some pre-cooked turkey sausage that I needed to use up, cheddar cheese lying around in the fridge and fair amount of eggs that needed to be used pretty soon too. I mixed the three up, added salt and pepper and poured the mixture evenly into a greased muffin tin. I baked it in a 350 degree oven for about 10-15 mins (until it wasn't jiggly in the center anymore). It was super easy and makes a perfect breakfast. If you use turkey sausage, egg whites and a reduced fat cheddar cheese it is a really healthy meal too! Serve with a side of fruit salad like I did and you are ready to go!

Here is one of our delicious dinners- Maple Bourbon Glazed Pork Tenderloin, garlic mashed potatoes, homemade red wine vinaigrette dressing on romaine lettuce and freshly baked cheddar bay biscuits with a butter parsley glaze. It was a pretty tasty dinner if I do say so myself.

And there you have it folks- the random meals and treats, handcrafted by yours truly!
