    Default 2020 Try New Recipes Challenge

    How many new recipes will you try in 2020? Expand your cooking skills! Experience new flavors! Cook healthy at home!

    Share recipes or links and let us know how it worked out.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    I made a variation of this tonight: https://www.marthastewart.com/345023...erries-and-pec

    Changes I made: I sauteed onion, celery and pecans in butter while rice cooked in the steamer. Added rice and cranberries, seasoned with Season Salt to taste. (The chicken stock it was cooked in really did not give it enough flavor)

    DH liked it and had 3 servings!

    My goal is to try 52 new recipes this year. I have a ton of cookbooks and magazines that are just sitting here taking up space so I'm going to use them or get rid of them! Right now I have 12 new recipes on the menu for January.

    I know I'll be trying a lot of new recipes this year. Since dh needs to change his eating, we will be looking for some new recipes. I did try a recipe for baked fish. I left out the salt and dh loved it.

    Copykat.com has homemade versions of favorite take-out or sit-down foods. I printed Boston Market Creamed Spinach for later this week sometime. She also has a "budget meals" collection.

    I made this soup today. I have more barley in the pantry than I thought. I have seen barley pudding with fruit (like rice pudding) so maybe try that next week.

    I made this recipe tonight: https://sweetcsdesigns.com/one-pan-c...ragus-skillet/ It's supposed to be a keto friendly recipe. We liked it.

    The only changes I made were using olive oil instead of butter, and leaving out the red pepper flakes.

    My chicken thighs took way longer to cook than expected. The asparagus got a little overcooked in the sauce. In future I will do the asparagus in the steamer and add at the end. The sauce was very thin because there is nothing in the recipe to thicken it and IMO it was a waste of cream. I'll just use the broth if I make it again, or go ahead and use a little flour to thicken it.

    I served with a mushroom risotto.

    This looks easy for V-day. I need to buy the condensed milk tomorrow:

    The fudge recipe was easy, but I've had better fudge. I did not add anything other than 1.5 tsp vanilla that a reviewer else suggested, that made sense because you always add vanilla to choc frosting.

    This cornbread recipe is a Southern Living magazine one.. Not very sweet, but moist. My household loved it. So easy.

    Keto/low carb cookies. I'm not sure about the numbers given for sugar/carbs at the end of the recipe, because the number I calculated using my ingredients was higher than theirs (but still pretty good for a low sugar snack).

    I made one change, given that there was sugar in my PB, I left out the sweetener.

    https://kimspireddiy.com/4-ingredien...r-gluten-free/

    The cookies were very easy to make with so few ingredients. I mixed by hand with a fork. Baked for 14 and a half minutes. Couldn't tell if they were "baked", but I figured the small amount of egg should be. DH tried one while they were still a little warm, said they were dry, although they were chewy in the middle. Said they tasted good but needed more butter or oil.

    Recipe made 12 small (1 TB dough) sized cookies.

    I have 1 dozen eggs and want to avoid using them if possible. Remembered I thawed out pumpkin puree to make space in freezer. Going to try this eggless pumpkin pie recipe. The recipes seem to substitute either cornstarch or tapioca flour for eggs.

    I made this ground beef dish..I followed what others said and added more potatoes but I then should have increased the spices! The gravy is rather thin, so I will try with a gravy packet next time.

    I make this bread a lot and it has a crispy outside and soft inside.... It's best eaten while warm.....

    Chocolate cake - no eggs or butter required. She has a Youtube video showing it also.
    Have not made the pumpkin pie yet since hubby bought apple pie at the store last week. However happy to have 2 no-egg recipes on hand now.
