Recipe Roundup

After traveling for a few days + lots of restaurant food, it was nice to get home + be back in the kitchen. We love cooking with each other + being home. We’ll take it any day over a night out at a restaurant. Here are a few of the recipes that have hit the table since being home:

Perfect Pancakes via A Beautiful Mess with Slow-Cooked Hoisen + Ginger Pork via TheKitchn + basic scrambled eggs ~ Husby loves pancakes! We didn’t have buttermilk at the house, so I ended up substituting regular milk with white vinegar. A trick I found online + they tasted great.


Chilled Summer Rolls via Skunkboy Blog with Slow-Cooked Hoisen + Ginger Pork via TheKitchn ~ It took me a few tries to find rice paper wrappers, but did finally find them at Fresh Market. Husby + I had soo much fun making these together on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. I’ll definitely be keeping these in rotation this summer!


Spicy Citrus Fish Tacos + Lemon Lime Shrimp Tacos via instructables with grilled eggplant + zucchini ~ the fish tacos called for a chili rub, but didn’t specify any particular type. We used the Sweet Chili Rub via the Marinades & Rubs book.  The shrimp tacos turned out great, but I think we were iffy on the fish tacos. Maybe it was the rub that we chose, not quite sure. I have yet to find a great recipe for non-breaded fish tacos.


Do you have a great recipe for fish tacos? I’d love to hear your suggestions!
