Hi everyone, welcome to my first blog! To start eating healthier a little more
often and to attempt to save some money I started to cook at home more often and thought I would share some of the recipes I have tried.
Since my husband and I both work celebrating Valentine's day during the week would
likely be rushed, stressed and no fun no matter if I cooked at home or we ate out. So we decided to have our Valentine's dinner this weekend. I tried several recipes from www.allrecipes.com that we both liked.
The first was Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks, http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Savory-Garlic-Marinated-Steaks/Detail.aspx< ,
which I thought was excellent and my hubby thought was good. I followed the recipe with the exception of the soy sauce because it was not until I started to put the marinade together that I realized I was out of soy sauce. No problem, I'll just use teriyaki
sauce. Uh oh, no teriyaki either. So I crossed my fingers and tried the hoisin sauce and it turned out really well. I recommend trying this recipe. Next time I will try it with the soy sauce.
To go with the steak we tried the Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar which
was super easy and tasted great. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Roasted-Asparagus-with-Balsamic-Vinegar/Detail.aspx< .
To round out the meal we had the roasted potato recipe with the great title, Bada-Bing-Bada-Banged-Potatoes, http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Bada-Bing-Bada-Banged-Potatoes/Detail.aspx< .
These are like roasted smashed potatoes with an olive oil, parmesan cheese, and herb mixture. I thought they were good and a nice change of pace.
I know on Valentine's it is expected to have a great dessert. However, we kept
it simple and had some low fat ice cream.
I will keep trying new recipes and share ones I like.
