Mention a new dish and I cringe at the thought of reading a recipe, shopping for extra ingredients, more time in the kitchen to get the recipe right.
But, amazing for my track record, I tried two new recipes in the past week.
It started with fresh shrimp on sale at the grocery store and fresh tortillas in my cart. Not having made shrimp tacos in recent memory (and I call myself a Texan?), I went searching and found a recipe that included Lime Cilantro Sauce here at Life's Ambrosia.
Now, usually I skip a new recipe's sauce
The second recipe venture started with wilting strawberries in the fridge. The idea of another banana berry smoothie sent me to the edge and then to the internet in search of something different.
Thanks to Cookies on Friday, I came up with this wonderful Fresh Strawberry and Cream Cheese Bread. Adding walnuts and ground flax seed changed the look considerably but everyone loved it, including four girls at my daughters' sleepover.
So two new recipe successes in one week. Pretty pleased with myself. My family's palate is pretty pleased, too.
How about you? Tried any new recipes lately?
Those sound delicious. I haven't tried anything new since my apple period.
Those shrimp tacos look fantastic.
I just made a Bundt cake.
Mmm. I made a nice loaf of whole wheat/oatmeal bread over the weekend.
We sound like we have the exact same approach to cooking these days!
Friday is a baking day and I'm going to be making what the internet assures me are THE best molasses cookies ever.
Mmmm, share the recipes, please! I'm stuck in a zucchini or banana bread rut.
I'm impressed at anyone willing to experiment in the kitchen. Let's see...I made a quiche with all vegetables and my carnivorous husband ate it ALL.
Since I now working evenings I am always trying to come up with something I can make early in the day to take my dinner to work and my husband can have when he gets home. Something besides pasta, that is, because he is tired of pasta (really? someone can get tired of pasta?) Anyway, fritatta and quiche work really well and the latest one I made had arugula, prosciutto and fresh mozzarella. It was great and held over well for the next day.
I'm hungry right now...
Way cool. I'm going to try the shrimp recipe when we get back from the holidays, thanks!
Hope your holidays are happy.
You had me at Lime Cilantro sauce! It sounds like something I could just drink, by itself.
