Fave Magazine Articles… Series 1 of 3
I have spent time recently perusing through past issues of Molly magazine. And I have concluded that I absolutely love the “Begin with the Basics” articles. In the past, I have shared my insecurities when it comes to anything cooking or baking related. The back to the basics articles clearly spell out everything. I don’t have to question the details or bug my mother-in-law once again with kitchen questions!
Here are a few of my favorite Begin with the Basics recipes which I want to try as soon as possible…
Tea Sandwiches – I want to invite my nieces over for a tea party with my daughter and I. They love to help their mom in the kitchen and I thought they might enjoy helping us put these sandwiches together for a lovely afternoon tea. http://econobusters.com/molly_green_magazine_a_light_heart_in_dark_times/
Pesto – A few months back, I had a bunch of fresh basil going to waste because I simply did not know what to do with it! My sister creates a really delicious dish with pesto and I thought I would surprise her some day with some made from scratch pesto! According the description it is a gluten free creamy sauce, which would be perfect since one of her children needs a gluten free diet.
Meatballs – The last time I tried to make meatballs, I used a no sugar, no salt, no taste kind of recipe that left an “ugh” kind of aftertaste. This Molly magazine has loads of great ideas for using ground beef including three different meatball recipes! Looking forward to trying a new meatball recipe and these sound yummy… http://econobusters.com/emergency_preparedness/
Oh and just one more…. My blog last week was about recipe improvisation! Check out this great article about Emergency Recipe Substitutions in this Molly Green Magazine. I am going to print and hang it on the bulletin board in my kitchen. http://econobusters.com/molly_saves_in_the_kitchen/
