A New Skill to Learn

One of my goals this year is to learn a new cooking style or to cook with an ingredient I have never used before. So this post is part one: new cooking style.

After having wonderful Dim Sum while in Vegas last week, I have decided that I want to tackle this technique head on and make it for myself at home. This is going to require me purchasing a few items for the kitchen (don’t mind if I do). Haha!

Here are 5 recipes I am hoping to use to as I work on learning this new style. What is a cooking style you have been wanting to try?

A Platter of . . .

So I hate seeing pictures of perfectly arranged food platters . . .it makes the food look AMAZING! And we all know that when the food looks amazing you just need to eat the food.  I also decided that sometime soon I need to get on the food platter bandwagon just to test the theory about the food tasting better when served in a picturesque way.

Here are 5 renditions that I feel I can support and use as ideas for my own tastes. What do you guys think of food platters?

Food Love

Yes . . . it is February and yes . . . I am going to share the more romantic side of me this month for a change. It starts with this post—food that I am craving right now. You know, the kind of food that you drool over and can’t wait to take a bite out of.

What’s your food love?

Back to “Normal Food”

It feels like it has been FOREVER since I have eaten what I would consider a “normal” meal. I have had family from out-of-town, the holidays, parties, and long nights at the office that turned my regular eating habits upside down.

Now I am trying to ease myself back into the habit of cooking meals at home and preparing food for the work week. Here are 5 recipes that I am going to try in the next couple of weeks.

  1. Skinny Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes from Not Enough Cinnamon 
  2. Salsa Fresca Chicken from Easy Family Recipes 
  3. High-Protein Avocado Chicken Salad from Beauty Bites 
  4. Farro Bowls with Figs, Kale & French Goat Cheese from Feasting at Home 
  5. Greek Power Bowls from Delish
