One of the perks of being a grad student is that my classmates are willing to take part in study groups when we’re preparing for finals. For our last study session of the quarter, I decided to try some of the recipes that I found on Pinterest.com.
Even though I’ve become a better cook since coming to college, I’m not claiming to be an iron chef by any means, but I’ve gotten pretty good. Here’s what I made (most of these would make great appetizers at a party or get together):
1. Pizza Bites:
Cut up canned biscuits, chopped pepperoni and sausage, mozarella cheese. Roll into balls, bake at 350 for 15 mins. Dip in Pizza sauce.
2. Mozarella Sticks
Made by wrapping string cheese in egg roll wrappers. bake instead of fry.
Note: I ended up baking these and then having to fry them because they didn’t look very good.
3. Parmesan crusted zucchini
Egg wash and bread zucchini with parmesan cheese and spices, then bake at 425 for 30 minutes (flipping halfway).
4. Parmesan knots:
Roll biscuits into strips and tie into a knot; tuck ends under. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Then brush with parm mixture.
Most of these recipes came from my new favorite food blog FoodGawker. This website has a ton of really simple recipes that take minimal ingredients and minimal time.
