I have tried two new recipes lately that I have had a few questions about so I give you my thoughts. I also have a new one I found that I will be adding to my favorites list.
First recipe: Crispy Chicken and Bowtie Pasta
I was really excited to make this because it looked delish! The pasta portion of this was very very good. Loved it and the kids did too! I had some issues with the breading on the chicken. It was soggy, not crispy. I also had issues with the breading staying on. I think next time I would skip the crispy chicken part (and the time it takes to do it) and just throw some grilled chicken on the pasta.
Second recipe : Slow Cooker Root Beer Pulled Pork
I was really excited to make this. I love recipes that have random ingredients, and root beer plus pulled pork would qualify. This wasn't terrible, but I just have a lot of other pulled pork type recipes I would choose over it. The flavor was okay, I just felt it was missing something. I would definitely say try it once. We put it over rice. You can also put it on bread for a sandwich.
My new favorite recipe: Mini Meatloaves
I changed this slightly using turkey meat and breadcrumbs instead of ground beef and oats. It still tasted great! Super easy! I also baked them in large muffin tins (mine made 6 mini meatloaves). I will be adding this to the "My favorite recipe" tab on the right :)
