Elegant Orzo, Shrimp & Vegetable Salad Stuffed Avocados #SundaySupper

When I learned that this weeks #SundaySupper theme is orzo pasta, I jumped at the opportunity to develop this light and refreshing new dish.

Orzo is probably one of my favorite kinds of pasta. The shape is so tiny and compact that it works well as a filling for a stuffed dish like this Elegant Orzo, Shrimp & Vegetable Salad Stuffed Avocado.

Lip Smacking Lamb Recipe Roundup for Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings

Lamb is one of my all-time favorite proteins. I love making lamb roasts and chops, but I also enjoy substituting ground lamb for recipes which call for ground beef. It’s my way of incorporating the delicious flavor of lamb on more of a regular basis when it comes to our at-home dining options.

I feel certain; if you’re a lamb lover too, you’ll find plenty of new dinner ideas in this week’s Lamb Recipe Roundup for this weeks Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings. Please enjoy!

Spicy Smoky Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Ground Beef & Beans

You may say to yourself after reading the ingredient list “Hey!” “What in the world is ground cinnamon and cocoa powder doing in a savory recipe like this?” “And what about the butter and lime juice?” “She has really gone off the deep end with this recipe!” “Has Renee lost her mind?!!”

And my answer would be…Well. Maybe. But not about this recipe.

Awesome Asparagus Recipe Roundup for Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings

Springtime. When a young man’s (or woman’s) fancy turns to thoughts of…ASPARAGUS!  Well, that may not be exactly how the saying goes, but in my book, it sure should! Today’s Awesome Asparagus Recipe Roundup 2018 for Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings brings you some of the tastiest recipes from around the web for using what I consider, Mother Nature’s finest springtime veggie…ASPARAGUS!

Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup

This recipe for Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup is one I found, and adapted, from Cooking Light Magazine. I didn’t change the recipe much, but I did add more fennel (because I love the light anise flavor of fennel a lot lately), and I also increased the amount of white beans from the original recipe, and I omitted the sage and parsley because I forgot to purchase them at the market. Doh!

Other than that, this recipe I’m sharing is pretty much just as it was written in the magazine. I DO NOT take credit for this recipe, but I do take credit for sharing it with you here on Kudos Kitchen in case you missed it in Cooking Light Magazine. I strongly urge you to make this soup. It’s delicious!

Sensational Strawberry Recipe Roundup for Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings

These days we are fortunate enough to be able to purchase delicious seasonal strawberries year-round. I remember a time, not all that long ago when strawberries were only available in the late spring and summer months. Luckily for us, we can now make any (or all) of these dishes which are featured in today’s Sensational Strawberry Recipe Roundup, right away! No need to wait. I’m hungry. How about you?

Spaghetti Squash Recipe Roundup for Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings

If you’re lucky enough to have garden space where you live, spaghetti squash is also one of the easiest gourds to grow. In addition to them being easy to grow, and being low maintenance in the garden, spaghetti squash can be kept for up to two months as long as you store them in a cool, dry space, but NOT the refrigerator. All these (and many more) are fantastic reasons to feature this deliciously amazing gourd in today’s Spaghetti Squash Recipe Roundup.

Surprise Strawberry Pie Cake with Cute Lattice Pie Crust Topping

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you here (as I always am). This recipe idea for Strawberry Orange Pie Cake is not my own. I saw it in one of my back issues of Food Network Magazine and thought it looked like something I wanted to try. I did, however, adapt the recipe ingredients and also put my own touch on the lattice pie crust topping with those cute little strawberry accents to up the cuteness factor.

Extra Cheesy Spaghetti Stuffed Meatloaf for #SundaySupper

I came up with the idea for this Cheesy Spaghetti Stuffed Meatloaf to go along with this week’s #SundaySupper theme of “Cheesy Family Dinners.” I wanted to make something that was a little unexpected, and something that was topped with a thick layer of melted cheese. The result is this very large family-friendly meatloaf that will feed the masses when everyone is gathered around the #SundaySupper table.
