Kitchen Adventures

Last week I was able to spend 4 days cooking, and trying new dishes.  Everything was fun and yummy!  It was such a treat to cook so much after being gone on vacation.  I love trying new things!

First up was this amazing Fig/Asparagus/Pancetta pizza my friend Elaine invented.  It was to die for!  Perfect balace of sweet (figs, cranberries, etc..), and salty (pancetta).  I LOVE gourmet pizzas.  There are so many combos you can come up with.  Here is a link to the recipe.

Yum!

Next up were these simple yet yummy Chinese noodles.  They had a very mild flavor so Matthew enjoyed them.  Lot's of veggies too, which I like!  Here is a link to the recipe.

It took a bit of hunting, but I did find the "Chinese Egg Noodles", called for in the recipe...


Mmmmm....

Matthew going for it...


On Father's Day, I made a beautiful and yummy tomato/mozzarella platter.  I have used this recipe for several years, and it never dissapoints.  I love the addition of roasted peppers, and the garlicy/herb dressing you drizzle over the top.  Here is the link to the recipe.


Drooling...

The last thing I made was these yummy fish taco's.  Sorry, no recipe, I just kind of added things that sounded good.  I used fresh tilapia filets, and fried them in a beer batter.  Made a cucumber/cream sauce, pico de gallo, and added shredded cabbage and sliced avacados.  All on a lightly fried corn tortilla. They were really good, but don't know when I'll make them again.  A lot of work for just me in the house who likes fish...
