The Slow Roasted Italian - A Look Back at the Week of March 19

Hello and Happy Saturday Slow Roasters.  We had a great week here at The Slow Roasted Italian.  We have been trying new recipes and still loving old ones.  Gardening has been exciting as we watch these little buds emerge.  I am happy to say that it looks like at least 12 of the basil plants are sprouting.  The tomato plants are looking good.  We have about 10 or 11 tomatoes sprouted, along with some peppers (Italian bell to habenero).  Mostly everything else is taking its time.

This week we had 5 amazing recipes and incredibly mouth watering pictures to go with them.   So are you curious what everyone has been checking out all week?

The Peanut Butter Cup Delight Cocktail has been out most popular post this week.  It is in insanely delicious and decadent rendition of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in a glass.  Try one!  Trust me you won't be disappointed.

Perfect Every Time Pork Roast was a great tutorial (with a recipe) about how to cook your pork loin.  Baked on a high temperature to brown it and then low and slow for about an hour and a half. That method turns out the best pork I have ever had.   Second most popular recipe this week.

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, these fantastically healthy Dried Apple Chips are sure to do the trick. In your oven or dehydrator.  An incredibly easy snack to prepare and so healthy.  Your body will thank you.

Packed with 3 Italian cheeses, these Cheesy Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs are deliciously fun to eat!  Mozzarella, Parmesan and Romano cheeses all come together to make this incredible meatball. There are never enough, even with a recipe with makes 32 large meatballs. 

Roasted Vegetable Penne Pasta is number 5 this week.  But, it was a post from last month.  Your love of this post has made it number 1 on our all time favorites.  It is a simple mixture of roasted vegetables and pasta with an incredible garlic olive oil dressing.  Oh so good!  If you haven't checked it out, you are certainly missing out.

Cinnamon Swirl French Toast is a fabulous french toast, kicked up a few notches to make this the perfect Diving Into Decadence dish!

We do hope you have enjoyed this weeks posts!  If you get to make or bake anything on the blog, please link back to your post.  We love to see your results!!!

Have a great weekend and we will see you Monday!

Buon Appetito!!
