What I Cooked | April 2015


I’ve been continuing to cook one new dish each week to learn new cooking skills.  You can follow my “Stuff I Cooked” Pinterest board for all the dishes that I cooked this year so far.

Skinnytaste | Spiralized Shanghai Beef and Broccoli

20150408-2015-04-08 18.38.41_blog

Made this on 4/8/2015 - it was hard to get that much broccoli stem to spiralize it, without getting quite a few broccoli heads. So next time I think I'm going to buy broccoli florets and broccoli slaw in a bag. I sliced up the beef and marinaded them for an hour, instead of marinading the whole steak for 2 hours. Turned out great!


Skinnytaste | Shrimp Zoodles Parmesan

20150414-2015-04-14 18.46.24_blog

Made this on 4/14/2015. Very easy recipe to make on a weeknight. Turned out really well, I'll definitely be making this again!  The shrimp was baked in the oven and turned out excellent.  You can probably adjust this recipe to use chicken. 


Cooksmarts | Sriracha Ramen Tofu Salad

20150421-2015-04-21 18.26.49_blog

Made this on 4/21/2015 - very easy and delicious! I would probably either use less noodles or substitute some noodles with zoodles next time. It's a lot of noodles and associated calories.  But the flavors were delicious and it was fast & easy.


Damndelicious | One Pot Garlic Parmesan Pasta

20150427-2015-04-27 18.43.01_blog

Made this on 4/27/2015 - I used 2% milk instead of whole. Used linguine instead of fettuccine. Added 12 oz of roasted rotisserie chicken for protein. It was delicious and about 30 minutes!

And that’s what she cooked in April.  Todd cooked the rest of our meals.  We actually cooked quite a bit at home in April!  We cooked at home 25 out of 30 days in April.  This habit tracking sheet is really working for us.
