Roasted Sugar Snap Peas

Happy Taste of Home Tuesday!  I can't believe it's been 3 years since I was selected to be a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home magazine! I started reading them way back in the 90s when my Gram subscribed, and I've got almost every issue back to the premiere.  I've had two recipes published and have made more than 225 recipes from the magazines, cookbooks and their website.  They're always winners with my family!

I hit the local farmstand over the weekend and they had beautiful sugar snap peas, and it only took me a few minutes of searching my pinterest board to decide what to make.  I love roasted vegetables so much more than boiled or steamed ones.   These Roasted Sugar Snap Peas are super fast and super delicious.  I was unable to find a shallot, so I used Bermuda onion instead.   To be honest, I made them in the afternoon so I could take pictures intending on eating them with dinner.  They didn't last that long.  Crisp but tender, perfectly seasoned.   The Test Kitchen knocked it out of the park with this one, and it definitely is going into the menu rotation.

  1. I love roasted veggies and these Roasted Sugar Snap Peas look and sound delicious! Perfect for summer. Thanks so much for sharing at the Whimsical Wednesdays Link Party!

  2. Mmm! Sugar snap peas are on of my favorite veggies, but I hardly ever get them. I really need to change that! These look fantastic!

    1. They're one of the few green veggies I can get my kid to eat, so I try to grab them every time I see them :)

  3. LOVE sugar snap peas, but I usually eat them raw with hummus. Definitely going to try your recipe - I'll see if I can convert the rest of my family into snap pea lovers :-)

    1. Oh, I've been eating lots of hummus with cut up bell pepper lately, I'll definitely have to try it with snap peas! Thank you!

  4. I never thought of roasting snap peas. I think so many people just think of stir fries and salads with this vegetable. I am betting the flavor is phenomenal!

  5. I love sugar snap peas. I bet they are delicious roasted!

  6. I love the idea of roasting sugar snaps! Now if I could just get better at removing the strings!

  7. We've been growing sugar snap peas this year, as we have the last few years, and love them. We usually eat them raw or occasionally stir fried but haven't tried roasting. One to try when we get some more!

  8. Now if only I had sugar snap peas growing in my garden!!!

  9. I've only eaten sugar snap peas raw, I bet they are delicious roasted!

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast Sandwich

I'm one of those people that preparedness makes all of the difference.  If I have easy snack and meal choices ready to go, then I can resist the call of the drive through.  I've been enjoying baked eggs for a while now, usually with sauteed peppers and onion, on top of a whole grain English muffin.  When Dunkin Donuts came out with their new Power Breakfast Sandwich I immediately thought, I can make that at home! I started with the same base baked eggs recipe that I've been using.  I do normally use whole eggs, but for this version to keep it true to the Dunkin Donuts one, I just used the whites.  I sauteed diced bell pepper and onion until they were soft, then let them cool.  I chopped up some baby spinach, discarding the stems.  I had lots of eggs on hand, so I separated them myself, but you could definitely use the store bought egg whites. I beat the egg whites, added a bit of salt and pepper, the veggies, and then poured them into a sprayed muffin top pan .  Bake
