This summer it's my goal to try out as many new recipes as possible. It's my attempt to both expand my horizons and also to learn how to become a better cook.
Since we all seem to be searching for good recipes I decided to share some of my favourites so far.
Bacon Wrapped Chicken & Pineapple Kabobs
I was having over a group of six people for dinner and decided to serve this for my main course and it didn't disappoint.
I made a teriyaki sauce to marinate the chicken in, then also used it as a sauce when barbecuing and the end result was quite tasty. Let's just say there were no leftovers that night!
Bruschetta 'n Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts
I am a huge fan of bruschetta so this recipe caught my eye right away and it's another keeper. It was a time consuming process stuffing the breasts, but very much worth it. I cooked these in the oven since it was a rainy day but next time will try them on the barbecue.
Ground Beef Tacos
I had sadly never even tried a taco until a few years ago when my friend introduced me to them and right away I was a fan. When it came to cooking them myself I looked up quite a few different recipes and this is the one I settled on and was quite pleased with it. I cut back quite a bit on the chili powder because of my sensitive stomach and they still turned out great.
These can be done in a soft shell or hard shell and taste amazing when combined with a fresh lime drink (see right). I made a lime mojito's, using sparkling lime water (PC brand), half a lime quartered up, four fresh mint leaves and lots of ice.
