I used to fancy myself a pretty good cook. Then, I took a job with a killer commute and pretty much stopped cooking. Who wants to START dinner when they get home at 7? Not me. Now that I’m home, I feel like I should probably try to put something on the table for my husband most nights. Here are some recipes I’ve had some success with lately.
Chicken-Meatball Yakitori - Oh my goodness, these were fantastic. I served them with yakisoba noodles and some stir fried vegetables. Easy-peasy.
Maple Mustard Chicken – This is not the prettiest picture ever, but this chicken is FANTASTIC. And, it’s easy. I put a few chicken breasts in the marinade mid-morning and Bill grilled them when he got home.
Blueberry Boy Bait – Again with the crappy food photography. I needed something simple to make for a playdate and I had a ton of frozen blueberries from my Papa’s garden. SO VERY YUMMY.
Chorizo Stuffed Poblano Peppers – I made these a few weeks ago with some crappy grocery store chorizo. They were good, but I knew if I used better chorizo they’d be awesome. So, this week, I got some great chorizo from our local butcher and whipped these up. This time, I added a bit of corn and black beans to make them a bit heartier. This was an excellent addition. The peppers that I bought were a bit small, so I had leftover filling that I made a couple burritos with for lunches. Please make these. You will not be sorry.
Penne with Basil, Sausage and Mustard -This recipe is by no means light, but it is by ALL MEANS very, very delicious. As Crist says, it’s definitely a “treat” recipe rather than an every week meal. It is great for leftovers, if you’re into that kind of thing.
So, what have you been cooking?
