Here are the recipes we made, with my thoughts on them. Bear in mind I am a vegetarian. Also, I didn't take photos of our recreations, due to my taking horrible photos of food. I just can't do it, they all turn out horrid, so all photos are from the blog the recipe came from.
This was amazingly good! It was also fast and relatively easy. I wouldn't be put off from it by fear of it being risotto; it was actually much easier to cook than people make it sound. It was delicious, and we will definitely make it again.
Another winner in our books! Easy, fast, nutritious, delicious. Vegetarian and low carb, and protein from the cheese and eggs!
This was something I have actually had once before, but hadn't actually made myself. I think it is my favorite thing that I made all week! It was hearty, flavorful, thick, creamy, and perfect for the horrible cold weather we are having. It was even better the next day, I just added a cup of broth to thin it back out! Again, this made our permanent list of winter recipes.
Friday night we cheated and went out to dinner, but we did make Pinterest food for breakfast on Saturday.
This was awesome!! We liked it so much, we actually made it again, this time for a quick dinner on Monday, and what we didn't finish, my husband has packed up and taken with him to work to warm up as breakfast when he gets there. It was fast, cheap, filling, and warm. Another win!
Overall, the week went very well, and we really enjoyed everything we made. Most of the recipes did not involve many ingredients, and therefore the cost in making them was low as well. My husband and I are just your average home cooks, and everything was easy to prepare, another plus.
This was an experiment we will definitely try again!
