24 Delicious Limricks

I'm a cooking machine as of late, and it seems that writing poetry about each recipe takes longer than the recipe itself, so this post is a series of short limericks about all of the 24 (!) recipes I've tried out over the past month.

Just wait 'til you get to the last one!

Recipe 256 - Spinach Ricotta Calzone from RecipeByPhoto

Pizza, pasta, cannoli sweets
All of these Italian treats
But the best one known
Is the great calzone
Others become obsoletes.

Recipe 257 - Spinach Artichoke Melts from HalfBakedHarvest

A lush dip that hits the spot
Cheese and veggies in a pot
Don't stop at a spread
Slap it on some bread
A meal that won't be forgot

Recipe 258 - Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake from WhatAGirlEats

Ignored the call for parchment
And my cake did stick like lint
I had to get smart
And bake from the heart -
A new cookie I did invent!

Recipe 259 - Cauliflower Buffalo Bites from GoodDinnerMom

To replace those greasy wings
You can make these spicy things
By pouring hot sauce
On Cauliflower, toss,
Then feast on them like thin kings.

Recipe 260 - Smores Croissants from NorthernCottage

Campground smores are hard to beat,
These are made without fire's heat
Take a gooey bite
And then you just might
Smile the whole time you eat.

Recipe 261 - Roasted Garlic Pasta Salad from EatTags

Garlic, garlic, everywhere
In this pasta, none to spare
A meal to please
You'll be on your knees
Begging for one bite to share

Recipe 262 - Greek Spaghetti Squash from SpendWithPennies

If you underestimate
Cooked spaghetti squash's taste
Try it at its peak
And add all things Greek,
You'll probably lick your plate.

Recipe 263 - Corn and Cotija Guacamole from Closet Cooking

I love all guacamole
And feta cheese is holy
Add it together
I don't know whether
To eat it fast or slowly

Recipe 264 - Easy Salted Peanut Butter Fudge from SophisticatedGourmet

Decadent, rich, and easy
A treat that's truly pleasing
Peanut butter, salt,
and chocolate will halt
Any naysayers teasing

Recipe 265 - Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken Breast from BSugarMama

A new favorite recipe
Chicken breast with spicy cheese
You can't go too wrong
So don't waste too long
To find your new destiny

Recipe 266 - Creamy Garlic Mushrooms from LoveFoodies

I know when I buy mushrooms
My husband waits in pure gloom
Even garlic's scent
To him won't make a dent
They're all for me to consume!

Recipe 267 - Cheesy Stuffed Garlic Butter Croissants from LaurensLatest

Pop the can with a tough pinch
I won't judge you if you flinch
Stuff them with some cheese,
Lots of garlic please,
These yummy rolls are a cinch!

Recipe 268 - Kansas City Dirt Cake from Lilluna

When you make this pudding cake
The true fixings you must take
If it's not made right
You'll have quite the fright
When you find you've made a shake!

Recipe 269 - Lemon Crinkle Cookies from FrugalianticsRecipes

As the summer starts to break
I found an excuse to bake
A refreshing sweet
Helps your body beat
The high heat you just can't shake.

Recipe 270 - Greek Marinated Chicken from FocusEat

Chicken soaked in Greek Yogurt,
baked until juices squirt,
It melts on your tongue
Til taste buds have sung
'Better save room for dessert!'

Recipe 271 - Mini Shepards Pies from Pillsbury

I know - meant to be mini
You'll just have to forgive me
Everywhere I go
I can't find the dough
Trials of New York City.

Recipe 272 - Bacon Roasted Corn from HugsandCookiesXOXO

The thing that makes corn better?
Wrap in a bacon sweater,
Smother it in salt
Butter to a fault
Then top it with some pepper.

Recipe 273 - Graham Cracker Peanut Butter Balls from My Newest Addiction

Like a bite of cookie dough
That improves the status quo
With peanut butter
My heart's a-flutter
(Oreos are better though!)

Recipe 274 - Baked Potato Cheddar Soup from Taste of Home

So warm, so creamy, and rich,
To be made without a hitch
But if the soup goes
by mashed potatoes
You won't tell which bowl is which!

Recipe 275 - One Pot Chili Mac and Cheese from DamnDelicious
Made in just a single pot
Complicated it is not
A fine hearty meal
Makes hearty men squeal
He'll say, "Ah- that hit the spot!"

Recipe 276 - Beer Cheese Fondue from MelanieMakes

An indulgence that we love
Cheese hugs the fruit like a glove
It drips and it strings
And the taste it brings
Will make you cry like a dove.

Recipe 277 - Easy Pull Apart Pizza Bread from Sweet and Simple Living

The swiss army knife of food
Canned biscuits are misconstrued
But this time you need
Lots of sauce indeed
The dry taste is just too crude.

Recipe 278 - Cucumber Pineapple Salad from FoodiePix

I just re-read the title
Reading closely is vital
I made a mistake
And instead did make
A chip dip as a trial.

Recipe 279 - Salted Chocolate Caramelized Bananas from LifeMadeFull

Carmelized fruit is sweeter
And dipped in chocolate, neater
Then sprinkled with salt
It makes your heart halt -
Good for a picky eater

Recipe 280 -Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake from TastesBetterFromScratch

This cheesecake was such a curse
It deserves more than one verse.
I'm glad it was shared,
Otherwise I'm scared
Right now I'd be in a hearse.

Not one, two, or three layers
But four decadent flavors -
An oreo crust,
The middle's a must,
Then double chocolate slayers.

The cake crept into my dreams,
Through the day I held back screams,
I just couldn't wait
'Til sat on my plate
was cheesecake - to the extreme.
