A ‘quick’ stroll

Quick, simple and easy. I took a stroll through my blogroll to find some budget-friendly dishes.

Jerry at Cooking… by the seat of my Pants! posted a recipe for “Kahlua Pork” at the beginning of September. This one boasts a few perks.
•  It requires only three ingredients besides the pork, and white rice to serve it with.
•  Almost no measuring required.
•  The pork, after being liberally seasoned, gets put in the oven to cook for FOUR HOURS. That means you can start it in the early afternoon on a weekend, go about your business, and then return to the kitchen for a delicious dinner.

Kristen at Dine and Dish linked to a recipe from Recipezaar for “Extra Cheesy Crescent Mozzarella Wedges.” Take a look at the picture. Look familiar? Yeah. It’s essentially a facsimile of Papa John’s cheesy bread. It only takes about 20 minutes, uses four ingredients and costs a lot less.

Cure your potato craving with these “Crash Hot Potatoes,” posted by Ree on her blog, The Pioneer Woman Cooks! You’ll need some spuds (of course) along with olive oil, salt and any herb you’d like on them. She uses rosemary. Yum! The potatoes don’t need to be peeled or chopped like their mashed and french fried cousins. A definite plus.

Feel free to skip the flourish of “microgreens” on this one. This “Parmesan Chicken,” however, sounds phenomenal. This one was found on foodgawker, and links to a page on Happy in the Kitchen. Scroll to the bottom of the page for a link to the recipe. Serve this one with some spaghetti for a full dinner.
