I’ve been cooking a lot, as per usual, but I haven’t been writing down my newest “creations”. I have found some more of my FAVORITE recipes though! So, I thought I’d share some with you!
Some of these are quick and easy, and some have some complicated ingredients, but they all turned out SOO good!
To start out, did you know that depending on how you cut your spaghetti squash will determine how long the “noodles” are?
Check out this blog!
And once you nail that, try this recipe:
Do you even crave Indian food? If you don’t… it might mean you NEED to try it! Because once you try it I have a feeling you will start to crave it. You do have to find your favorite recipe, but… I’m telling you! Another benefit is that a lot of Indian food has turmeric in it. Curry powder does! And turmeric not only has the BEAUTIFUL yellow color (add it to your rice for a GORGEOUS yellow rice!), it also has a lot of health benefits!
A lot of Thai food can have some similar ingredients! I didn’t know that until this recipe:
That soup was AWESOME and my husband RAVED!!
Another dish that I have come to LOVE is Tikka Masala. Like… LOVE. I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to spice though, so I always adjust the spice level to my taste. Especially the cayenne powder. So… keep that in mind!
If you’re like me, sometimes you come across a great deal on a certain cut of meat. You then bring it home, throw it in the deep freeze and then forget about it! The next time you come across it you cannot figure out what on earth to cook with it! That’s what I did with a pork loin the other day… and then I found this following recipe. (Note: use a meat thermometer, especially with pork and chicken. You’ll know when it’s done to perfection and will no longer have overcooked DRY meat, because you’ll know when to pull it out of the oven!)
That pork tenderloin was a HIT at my house!!! Even the leftovers were delicious!
Do you need a crock pot recipe that’s for the summer???? How about FAJITAS?! You can’t go wrong with those! Serve it with some chips and guacamole and you’ll have a WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER! 🙂
Part of the reason I love the above recipe is that it doesn’t used pre-packaged fajita seasoning… so to me it’s a GOOD recipe! 🙂
Last but not least, when I switch to a low carb meal plan, I almost always end up buying some cabbage. Weight Watchers has a soup, South Beach recommended it, it’s filling and good sauteed or whatever. But then… you get tired of the sauteed cabbage. TRY this recipe. It’s like a coleslaw, salad, fresh, yummy mash up with chicken on it. NO MAYO though! (Which I prefer… I usually just say no to MAYO).
FYI, I did NOT put the pinto beans in the salad…. those are not my favorite… but the rest of the salad… YUM!
Ok, so that’s it for today… I’m telling you… TRY THESE! 🙂
I’ll get back to actually writing down my new inventions… but not today.
And now, for the song of the day:
