Well, now that my life is settling down, it’s probably time to get back to my cooking adventure. I’m slightly ashamed to say that it was way too easy to let cooking for myself be the first thing to go when life got even a little hectic. But one awesome new development is having another (and better) cook in the house!
Still, I’ve remembered occasionally to take pics when I do cook something (or when my fella does), so here are some new faves:
Roasted Mushroom Medley
This one was inspired by Pinterest one night when our fridge was running on empty and I needed to get creative. Instead of a medley of mushrooms, I only used the baby bellas I had in the fridge. I went nuts with the garlic, pulled some fresh herbs (rosemary from our garden and sage from our neighbors), and splashed as much balsamic as felt right. Instead of parsley, I used a small bit of cilantro, since that’s what we had readily available. I usually hate the taste of cilantro (I’m being forced to adjust to it since my boyfriend eats it on almost everything), but with this is worked. Definitely a new go-to appetizer!
Grilled Salmon and Broccoli
My boyfriend decided to surprise me when I got home from work one night. I have no idea how he spiced the salmon. All I know is, it was amazing. Along with the broccoli (wrapped in tin foil and placed on the top of the grill while the salmon is going), some deliciously juicy zucchini, it was perfection.
Grilling makes everything great.
