One of my goals this year is to try 20 new recipes. One month is over and I already tried four new recipes. I'd say this is a huge success so far. Two recipes come from a new cookbook I bought, one from my Pinterest board and the fourth from a friend at work.
I like that this project inspires me to try new stuff (I never made fried rice before and haven't had Sauerkraut in a very long time) and that I'm adding recipes to my repertoire.
001 // Granola Bars (January 16, 2016)
I bought a form to make my own granola bars. The first recipe I tried was this one from BettyBossi. It's written in German, but I guess you could use a translator if you want to make it as well. I made them already three times and also gave some my sister and brought them to work. I got only positive feedback and my boyfriend and I love it as well. They are super delicious and easy to make (you don't necessarily need a form, you can also make them with an ordinary baking plate).
002 // Penne with Broccoli and Sausage (January 17, 2016)
Next up I made this recipe from Martha Stewart. I used Penne instead of Rigatoni because that's what I had on hand. And also replaced the lemon with a lime. Super simple but really delicious meal. Love the fresh touch of the limes you add to this dish.
003 // Fried Rice (January 19, 2016)
Yep, it's true, I never made Fried Rice before and only had it a few times in my life. Now, after I made this delicious dish, I can't believe that I didn't made this before. It's so simple (ha, almost everything I try is super simple!) and oh so delicious. This recipe comes from the new Betty Bossi cookbook but I guess there are many great recipes out there.
004 // Szegediner Goulash with mashed potatoes (January 26, 2016)
This is probably my favorite new recipe so far. I never heard of this goulash before. A colleague had this for lunch at work and after I tried it, I knew, I had to get that recipe (I didn't find the recipe I used online though). As a side dish I made mashed potatoes that I balled with an ice-cream scoop.
Any recipe you love and highly recommend? Leave it in the comments.
