7 Quick Takes: Recipe Box Edition

This week, I bring you 7 recipes that are currently in my “To Try” folder.  Obviously, I haven’t made any of these yet, so all photos are from the recipe-holders’ blogs.

— 1 —

Foil-Pack Chicken and Broccoli Dinner (via Big Oven).  Looks easy.  Involves vegetables.  Sign me up.

— 2 —

New York-Style Bagels (via The Sophisticated Gourmet).  Bagels are one branch of bread-making that I’ve never really ventured into.  Next time I have a day off and a healthy dose of ambition, I think I’m going to try this recipe.

— 3 —

Homemade pop tarts (via Smitten Kitchen).  Like pop tarts, but…good.  I’m very excited about this recipe, but I haven’t found the right occasion for it yet.  I have a feeling I should get it done before Lent (a season when store-bought pop tarts are still acceptable).

— 4 —

Licorice Caramel Candy (via Taste of Home).  Am I the only one who thinks this looks good?  Be honest – I can take it.

— 5 —

Strawberry Pie (via Elizabeth Foss).  Okay, I totally missed the boat on this one until summer.

— 6 —

Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal (via Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures).  This looks really tasty, very filling, and way too much for one person.  That’s probably why I haven’t made it yet.  Maybe I should just…quarter the recipe for myself.

— 7 —

Apple Pie Cookies (another via Smitten Kitchen).  So fussy looking, and yet so awesome.  I haven’t done these yet because I don’t have a cookie or biscuit cutter that’ll cut through apple slices.  My method of dough-cutting involves barware of various diameters, and while it works well for that, I think it would effectively mangle an apple (or break the glass).

    #4 – I was surprised to see they’re anise flavored. The color led me to expect red licorice.
    #6 – Yum. Maybe double yum. I’ll bet it would freeze and microwave well.
    #7 – I have a drawer full of antique biscuit cutters. I’ll bring you one. (Okay, maybe “drawer full” is an exaggeration. I’ll bring you one anyway.)
