I continued to cook new dishes every week in June. I cooked four new recipes and they all turned out pretty well. You can follow my “Stuff I Cooked” Pinterest board for all the dishes that I cooked this year so far.
Damn Delicious | PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Made this on 6/4/2015 - it was pretty good. I think I put in too much minced ginger (1 tbsp is too much). Also, I didn't pat the chicken breasts dry before putting it through the food processor. So when I was cooking it too much water came out and I couldn't get it to brown. All those things are operator-error. And I used too much onion. Next time I'll adjust. I think in order for it to really taste like PF Chang's, you'd have to add more oil and sodium. (Isn’t that what makes everything tasty? LOL.)
The Woks of Life | 15 Minute Coconut Curry Noodle Soup
Made this on 6/9/2015 - I used shredded rotisserie chicken instead of raw chicken. My dish didn't turn out this red, but it was yummy. My soup wasn't hot enough when I poured it over the dry noodles, so the noodles were not soft enough. Next time I would soak the noodles in hot boiled water for 10 min and then add it to the soup. Also, the recipe says 15 minutes but it always takes me longer to chop things. This took me 29 min. (Yes, I used a timer.)
Damn Delicious | Teriyaki Salmon and Broccoli Bowl
Made this on 6/17/2015 - I substituted spiralized zoodles for the rice, because otherwise this dish is 500 calories. I thought it was rather good. My first time making salmon on my own and baking it was quite easy. The homemade teriyaki sauce was tasty.
Damn Delicious | Swedish Meatballs
Made on 6/29/2015 - Followed recipe as is, except that I forgot to add salt & pepper to the meat mix before making them into meatballs.
My sauce wasn't as thick as it looks in her photos, but it did thicken enough. I had a LOT of sauce. My first time making meatballs and it was a success! Todd loved this one.
So that’s what I cooked in June. So far I’ve made 24 new dishes in 2015 and they are all on my Pinterest board.
