Avocado with Red Radish and Carrot Carpaccio

Me- 🙂Boyfriend- ☹️ I really liked the daikon radish in this dish. This salad is from Italy according to the cookbook. You layer daikon radish, shaved carrot, shaved red radish with avocado slices. You top it with pickled onion and an oil and lemon juice herby sauce. I plan to use this tomorrow to make…

Hummus

Eh. I give this a 😕 I liked this hummus recipe at first. This is the first hummus recipe that I’ve made that includes juice of an orange. I liked the orange since it added a bit of sweetness. But on the second day, the hummus was a bit lacking. The orange flavor kind of…

Chicken Fajita Bowl

Boyfriend- 🙂Me- 🙂 Apologies for the photo, I got so excited for this dinner that I started digging in and forgot to properly plate my meal. I loved this. This is a great way to have Chipotle at home. I modified the recipe a bit by adding some seasonings: chili powder, garlic powder, ground cumin…

Black Forest-Shiitake Scramble

Boyfriend-😕Me- 🙂 Sadly I didn’t pick up Black Forest ham so technically this is Ham-Shiitake Scramble. I enjoyed it. I sautéed the ham and mushrooms for longer than the recipe called and I thought it brought in a great ham-y taste to the eggs. Boyfriend didn’t like the tomatoes in it and thought that was…
