It's time again for Secret Recipe Club reveal! My secret blog assignment this month is Adventures in All Things Food. Andrea lives on a large fruit and vegetable farm in Oregon with her husband and their three adorable kids, She and the kids grow some beautiful produce in their backyard garden, and she loves good food without a lot of fuss. Because, obviously she is extremely busy, but still wants to feed her family well.
Quite a few of Andrea's recipes caught my eye. Here are just a few:
- Zucchini and Quinoa Salad - not the right time of year, but I will definitely have to try this when summer rolls around, and I start getting zucchini from the garden.
- Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup
- Cherry-Apple Cobbler with Sweet Vanilla Custard
- Zucchini Spice Cookies
I've often relied on fried potatoes as an easy dinner when I don't know what else to fix. Heat some oil in a pan and toss in some potatoes, onions, and sometimes peppers, and you've got a yummy and satisfying meal. These particular potatoes don't quite work that way. Oh, they're definitely yummy and satisfying, and they are awesome for dinner. But they do take a little planning ahead because the potatoes need to be cooked ahead and refrigerated, so when they go into the skillet all they really need to do is warm and brown instead of cook completely. That extra step is most definitely worth it. The flavor is wonderful.
I will definitely be making these again.
