TGIF: Culinary Adventures

I’m trying to get out of my cooking rut. I used to be better about trying new recipes at least once a week, but the last couple of months have been a bit void of much newness in the kitchen.

So, I made myself a promise to try something different this week. I looked through all the recipes I’ve pinned on Pinterest¬†and decided on two simple dishes.

Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp & Feta

This first one came off Real Simple- always a favorite. I’m a big fan of roasted tomatoes so that was kind of what drew me in. Peeling and deveining shrimp is zero fun and your house may smell like the docks for a night, but it’s all worth it in the end.

Lemon, Mustard & Avocado Potato Salad

With most foods, you have a general idea of what you’re about to put in your mouth. However, I had no idea how this one was going to taste. Honestly, I just liked the picture enough to give it a go. And I’m glad I did. This will definitely be a repeat in my house from now on.

Have you tried any new recipes recently?

Summer Fruits

The short glimpse of summer sun we felt this weekend has me in the mood for summer desserts. In my opinion, there’s nothing better than cool, fresh fruit desserts during the sweltering days of summer.
