Marinated Cucumber Salad

This is one of my favorite recipes. I’ve made this so many times and it’s always a 🙂. The cucumbers are crunchy, sweet and slightly acidic from the vinegar. I don’t really like dill as an herb but it works sooo well in this dish. I like to have this ready to take on a…

Chicken Burrito Bowl

Me- 🙂Boyfriend- 😕 I enjoyed this as an easy dinner. I used this Recipe as a general guideline and I made some variations. I left off the corn tortilla strips, I bought them but didn’t feel like making them. I didn’t season and grill the chicken as directed, instead I put some frozen rotisserie chicken…

Herb Baked Tomatoes

Apologies for the screen shot. I forgot to take a proper picture for my blog, but I posted my first cooking TikTok! Videos are posted under @sundaynoms. I gave this a 😕 (but I’m weird with tomatoes)Boyfriend gave it a 🙂When I originally cooked this recipe I gave it a 🙂 Boyfriend had no notes…

Cajun-Style Cod

Me- 😕Boyfriend- 😕 Originally when I made this recipe (date unknown) I gave this a 🙂. Our major complaint was that it lacked salt. Ironically, I kept looking at my salt container, tempted to sprinkle some in the seasoning blend, but I wanted to stick true to the recipe. My other complaint, and this is…

Fish Taco Bowl

Me- 😕Boyfriend- 😕 My boyfriend and I give this the same score. Neutral face but it would have been a smiley face as a wrap. I tried this recipe. The main edits were that I didn’t get red cabbage for the slaw mix, I didn’t have chipotle pepper seasoning and I didn’t have jalapeño for…

Thai-inspired Barbecued Chicken

Me- ☹️Boyfriend- 😕 We liked the previous wings more. They were better after I stuck them in the air fryer for a bit, but they were still disappointing. The wings sat in a marinade that contained lemongrass, ginger, garlic, shallots, cilantro, sugar, coconut milk, fish sauce and soy sauce. While I love these flavors, the…

Ginger Punch

Me- 🙂Boyfriend- 🙂🙂 We love ginger beer and other ginger drinks in this house. This is our go-to ginger beer, especially since Costco sells it by the case. I’ve made this once before and we finished off the batch in no time. This punch is super easy to make and is only 4 ingredients. You…

Orange-Glazed Chicken Wings

Me- 🙂Boyfriend- 🙂🙂 These wings were so good! The glaze on the chicken was very flavorful. I loved the hint of orange from the orange marmalade. The only negative feedback about this dish isn’t for the recipe at all. I deviated and picked up party wings (or wingettes) from Costco instead of deconstructing chicken wings…

Mango, Pineapple and Grape Cocktail

Me-☹️Boyfriend- 😕 I’m trying recipes that I’ve made years ago from a cookbook that I absolutely love. What a stinker of a recipe to start with though. It was way too sweet. Now, I may not be the best judge of fruit recipes since I pretty much have to force myself to eat fruit. Although,…
