I’ve made these before, Roasted Corn and Zucchini Tacos from Budget Bytes.
I make this in a bigger batch so we can eat it throughout the week.
The taco seasoning packet makes the filling really spicy.
This time around I decided to add in some caramelized onions.
I have never caramelized onions so I winged it. While the onions were cooking a slipped in a bit of red wine.
Adding the onions to these “tacos” was a great idea. They were a big sweet and smokey which worked well with the hot from the spice and the creamy from the cheese.
Liz wanted more veggie based meals since we are both trying to keep to our exercise routines. She is making it and I am not…
BBQ Bean Sliders with Monterey Jack cheese and a simple slaw.
Again from Budget Bytes.
I added some chipotle chili powder into the beans to give it a little more of a kick.
The slaw is a pretty simple recipe from my neighbor.
Half a purple cabbage, salt, pepper, mayo, and rice vinegar.
I didn’t really measure anything for the slaw and went by taste.
A lot of change has happened to Liz and I over these past few months.
I finally quit my soul sucking 8 year old retail job.
Liz got laid off from her job.
Due to money constraints we have tried to spend as little as possible.
I’ve taken a lot of recipes from Budget Bytes. I cook from this place a lot but now that I do not have a job it is even more useful.
We love sriracha so this Honey Sriracha Chicken recipe was perfect!
As you can see I have already eaten half of it in this picture. Sorry.
I paired it with a Chinese lager, TsingTao.
The glaze on top was perfect. A mix between spicy and sweet. Liz couldn’t get enough of it.
I added a bit of hot water into the pot while I heated it. The glaze thickens very quickly due to the cornstarch.
Oh I am also watching an amazing anime about food and food hunters called Toriko.
It is amazing. Think DBZ mixed with Hunter Hunter with food.
My famous banana bread muffin recipe is from epicurious but with several modifications.
First of all, the recipe is intended to make 2 loaves, so I half everything in the recipe. I replace the vegetable oil with apple sauce and the creme fraiche with plain green yogurt. I also only use about 1/3 cup of brown sugar instead of the sugar it calls for. If not brown sugar, I have used cane sugar. The result is a delicious, low-calorie, guilt-free banana bread muffin recipe without using tons of sugar, oil, and butter!
