nine recipes i haven’t made yet

September 5th, 2010

When I first started this blog, I used to clip recipes out of cooking magazines all the time.  They were everywhere — stacks of magazines with dog-eared pages, gathered in piles on my nightstand and in random drawers, random crumpled clippings that somehow made their way into every suitcase and handbag I owned.

They finally made their way into one giant stack, as pictured below, which I promptly threw into a folder and, um, never looked at again.  As this blog has grown, I’ve become more comfortable experimenting with my ideas for flavor combinations and building new recipes off of my prior experiments, rather than looking for inspiration from cookbooks and magazines.

So it was time for me to get rid of my magazine cutout folder.  But in looking through them, there were a few that really stuck out in my mind, and I thought it might be fun to share them with you guys!  Some of these are creative, some are easy and delicious-sounding, and some of them just look like something I might have come up with myself.  Three years and dozens of cooking magazines later, here are nine recipes I haven’t made yet (but would love to try!):

Chilled Tomato-Tarragon Soup with Croutons (Bon Appetit, June 2008)

Fig, Prosciutto, and Gorgonzola Salad (Cooking Light, June 2007)

Crab, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Lemon-Basil Dressing (Cooking Light, June 2008)

Bruschetta with Fava Beans, Greens, and Blood Oranges (Bon Appetit, March 2009)

Baked Penne with Farmhouse Cheddar and Leeks (Bon Appetit, March 2009)

Creamiest Chocolate Pudding (Cooking Light, December 2007)

Caramel Layer Cake (Cooking Light, June 2007)

Caramel Popcorn (Cooking Light, December 2007)

Cucumber Gimlets (Bon Appetit, July 2006)
