Tonight I made a new recipe that has already become a favorite of ours. Of course I got the idea from Pinterest, where else?
I pinned a Bloomin’ Onion Bread from The Girl Who Ate Everything’s blog a while back, and when I heard that Joe’s mom and aunt were coming for dinner I decided it was a good time to try it out.
Like most of my recipes, I changed it up a bit. The original recipe can be found here. I followed the recipe except I decided to add two cloves of minced garlic to the mix.
OMG it was the bomb. We devoured it so quickly that I didn’t get a chance to take a picture. Luckily Christy keeps one handy on her blog. It looked like this but with garlic!
MMM! It is even better than it looks. I also made a chicken recipe that I had found on Pinterest months ago and previously made. It was also good, but could have been better. I found the chicken to lack flavor in the middle and would have preferred it to have some kind of spicy kick. Never the less, here is the recipe I used. I also steamed broccoli and made a salad. After dinner we had some peppermint cookies, courtesy of Safeway and their excellent placement of holiday treats near the milk. It was the Pillsbury pre-made dough, but it called to me! They were also very good.
I think the Garlic-Onion Bread recipe is our new go-to appetizer.
What is your go-to?
