Cooking Light Recap

This last week I cooked from  2016 Cooking Light Annual Recipes book and I LOVED IT! I already gushed all about how the cookbook is formatted HERE

Here is what I ended up making this week!

  • Halibut with Balsamic Cherry Tomatoes (p.47) So good and really easy and quick!
  • Radish and Avocado Quinoa (p.44)  - I elevated my plating game with this by using a cooking round to perfectly shape the side dish!

  • Caramelized Onion Burgers (p.24)  - I was out of town so I made these burgers on the stove before heading out of town. Matt just needed to reheat and add to some buns.

  • Asian Beef Stew -Friend made this for the family to eat while I was out of town and it was sooo yummy. I stole a bowl when I got home from my work trip

  • Italian Turkey and Orzo Soup (p.45)  - Made this in advance for Matt to just heat up while I was out of town. -- No photo sorry
  • Ate dinner with my parents
  • Butternut Squash, Kale, and Black Bean Quesadillas (p.47) - I thought that these were okay but the family was not impressed... made them for lunch

  • Chicken with Artichoke Pan Sauce (p.33)  This is going to become a regular in the Park household and I think that I will likely cook it again the next time that we host people for dinner.

  • PB and Banana Milkshakes (p.27) - I thought that these were going to be a hit with the kiddos but they ended up being a bust

At the end of the week I was really wishing that I had a chance to make even more... just ran out of time.

Check back in tomorrow to see what is on the menu for this week!
