A Rachael Ray Week

Somehow I managed to make 3 new recipes this week, courtesy of Ms. Ray. They were:
I wish I had taken lovely photos of my cooking, as some other bloggers do, but alas, I didn't. However, you can follow the links and see what they look like.

My review: the Cod Croquettes were surprisingly tasty for cod fish cakes. They had a lot of flavor, due to fresh thyme and fresh parsley, as well as some Old Bay seafood seasoning blend. I didn't have enough time (!) to make the Sweet Red Pepper Gravy that was recommended to go over the fish cakes. I'll have to try that another time.

The Blue Cheese-Stuffed Potatoes were delicious by themselves, but with chunks of buffalo chicken on top: WOW! I was surprised to find out how easy it is to make buffalo chicken. I used to LOVE buying a batch of Buffalo chicken wings as a treat, and now I know how to do it myself! The Blue Cheese-Stuffed Potatoes were also good cold, as left-overs. This one I'll definitely make again!

The Country French Chicken was good, but not great. It needed more seasoning for my taste. I may try it again and tweak the seasoning: we'll see.

So that's the kitchen round-up for this week. Still baking the Simple Crusty Bread that I blogged about earlier: I mix up a batch of dough, and whenever I feel like it, I bake a perfect, delicious round loaf! Love it!
