Thai Cucumber Salad
So good! Just like what you'd get in a restaurant. I didn't have any rice wine vinegar on hand, so decided to wing it & substitute white vinegar & just cross my fingers. It worked! Since you seed the jalapenos, there isn't much heat that comes from them. I added about a 1/4 teaspoon of red chili sauce to add a little heat. Can't wait for summer so I can bring this to a would be perfect for a hot day!

Pad Thai
I really liked this recipe & my husband said it was one of his favorite things I have ever made. He is a pad thai fanatic! A few things: I added a little red chili sauce to spice it up a little more. It just wasn't spicy enough for me as is. I also garnished it with some cilantro to add another layer. Overall, I think this is a good recipe...especially if it is your first time tackling pad thai!

Mexican Pesto
So good! I was looking for a simple recipe to use up some Cotija cheese we had left over from another dish. I made a few changes to avoid going to the store. I didn't have any pumpkin seeds on hand, but I did have unsalted roasted sunflower kernels so I used those instead. I didnt' add any salt at all, since the cheese is pretty salty. Also, I didn't have a serrano...just used red pepper flakes. It was a pantry dinner kind of day. Can't decide what I am going to put this on for dinner could pair it with so much!
