Recipe Love

Just some recipes I've tried lately and loved. Thought I'd share...

Tri-Color Pasta Salad
Very yummy. I couldn't stop! I added even more tomatoes because it added a nice freshness to the salad (this is coming from a girl who never used to like tomatoes at all!!) This recipe is a keeper! Kids did OK with it.

Cheesy Cauliflower Bake

Mostly I liked this. Kevin wasn't home that night. The kids didn't like the crunchies on top but otherwise I think it would've been okay for them. Also good with a little sour scream stirred in with it.

Cheddar Spirals
I usually use this recipe (super good!) for homemade mac n cheese but this was a new take using condensed cheddar soup and the crockpot. Kids approved! (sorry for the small pic, that's all there was)

Honey-Spiced Chai Bundt Cake
I made this for our MOPS brunch last week. Who says you can't have cake in the morning?! LOL I really liked this, especially with the delicious cream cheese frosting all over it. It's basically just a good spice cake. Real mild flavored and yummy!
Southern Mashed Potatoes
I've figured out how to make 'em "southern style" (from a girl who's not really from the south at all). LOL I suppose I'm comparing to what you might get at Cracker Barrell. Smash the potatoes with a mixer (learned this from Kevin's family and it's so easy that way). Add in lots of butter. For 4 potatoes, that's at least 1/2 stick of butter. Add milk to consistency and a moderate amount of salt. And here's what I learned, LOTS of pepper. Keep adding it 'til it tastes like what you want. It had to have been at least a teaspoon when I made it last. Soo good! (That was all so vague, did that even count as a recipe?? LOL)

*All the photos are from the recipe websites.

Have you tried any new recipes lately that have been delicious successes?? Do share!!

Can't wait to try the Cheesy Cauliflower Bake! I'm always looking for new ways to do veggies. And... I am from the south (Mobile, Alabama), and your mashed potato recipe looks about right to me.
