Weekly Wanderings: The Recipe Edition

in blogs, links ahoy, recipes, weekly wanderings

For some reason this week, I was only able to find recipes to share.  I figured that wouldn’t be a problem for anyone, so that’s all I’m sharing this week!
Mini Meatball Sliders with Basil Pesto – Many of you have noticed my adoration for ham and cheese sliders (they are my go-to game day or appetizer snack) and now I think I have a new one.  I love meatballs and pesto so this sounds like a perfect combination to me.  I’m waiting impatiently for Lent to be over so I can make these!
Spinach White Pizza – I usually don’t like ricotta cheese on my pizzas, but I think I will love this one.  Yum!
Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Penne Pasta – Clearly, Italian is the name of the game this week.  On a side note, I really need to stop collecting pasta recipes.  I recently had to create a separate folder just for pasta recipes to try.  Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I’m a pasta addict.
Strawberry Spinach Salad – I guess we need something healthy after all that heavy Italian food.  I’ve had salads like this before and I always enjoy them.  I can’t wait until I start finding strawberries on sale and can make this.  Seems like a fast and light spring and summer meal.
Apparently the blogosphere is telling me I need to try quinoa because this week I found two recipes that sound delicious and need to appear on my menu sometime in the near future.  This Quinoa “Mac and Cheese” with Spinach is probably a great way for me to use up the ridiculous amounts of cheese in my fridge and this Creamy Quinoa Primavera sounds like a great and filling vegetarian main dish.  Have you tried quinoa?  How do you like to cook it?
Have you found any recipes worth sharing this week?

I like the looks of your finds this week — I've not yet tried quinoa, but those recipes have me tempted.
