I think there is something really relaxing about cooking, and chopping, and such a sense of accomplishment when it's all finished and hopefully yummy! :) I also love that we know every ingredient going into the dish, and especially when it's all or mostly fresh ingredients!
Onto the food! I've tried some new recipes lately, here they are!
Sushi! Ok, this one isn't new, but we LOVE sushi. The boys too! It is our favorite food! Favorite!! (Salmon, tuna, snapper, mackerel nigiri and maki rolls, are what we mainly stick to :)) While I'm preggy, I've only been making veggie, mainly avocado, sushi at home. mmmmmm! Serve with (light sodium) soy sauce and wasabi! (and the babies can only eat veggie)
I usually make about 7 or 8 rolls at a time :) Normally plated prettier, but too hungry to make look prettier this time! haha
Proof of the littles' sushi love! You can get little chop stick helpers for the littles, BabyBoy loves using his chopsticks!
You may want to strip the baby for sushi, the rice gets and sticks everywhere! :) He says, "Why am I eating sushi half nakey?" haha
Artichoke Chicken*: Ok, if you love spinach and artichoke dip, you'll want to make this!
Rasberry Oatmeal bars*: These are SO yummy!
So, I forgot to take a pic of when the prettiest ones were cut, we were so hungry, these were daaaaays later the last couple that were not the prettiest, but still yummy! ;)
Scones: A lovely special breakfast with a cup of coffee or tea! I make these pretty often :) from a Betty Crocker Cookbook.
Let me know if there's one you want the in depth recipe for! They're all so easy! I have little changes or tips too, let me know! Happy cooking!! Bon apetit**!
