My Fantastical Feature for today is the Food Network Magazine. Specifically, I am sharing recipes I've tried from the May 2011 to July/August 2011 issues.
From the May 2011 issue, Lemon-Parsley Asparagus on p.113.
I served this one up with Lemon Fettuccine. It was my kids' first time having asparagus as a side and I'm happy to say both of them adore it and gobbled it up. That's a mom's dream come true, right?
From the June 2011 issue, "Name This Dish!" Stuffed Peppers on p.190.
These were later named Pork Bellied Poppers - they are actually pulled pork with cheese stuffed peppers. My husband and I devoured these. Best popper I have ever had HANDS down. We used leftover shredded beef from shredded beef tacos.
From the July/August 2011 issue, Buffalo Chicken Salad on p.114.
I didn't make this one precisely how it was made in the magazine - Nick and I don't do ranch or blue cheese dressing. At all. This is a great dinner if you are in a hurry!
As a whole, I rate Food Network Magazine with a 5-utensil rating.
Why? Because every magazine is stock full of recipes, tips for the kitchen, inspiration for kitchen decor, etc. It's the only periodical that I subscribe to. I'd be sad without it. I'm a FN junkie (:
Look for more Food Network magazine Fantastical Features in the future. I want to feature recipes from many of the issues! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
