What I Cooked | June 2015

20150629-2015-06-29 18.18.38_blog

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

20150609-2015-06-09 18.06.50_blog

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

20150617-2015-06-17 18.38.48_blog

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

20150629-2015-06-29 18.29.21_blog

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.


  1. TFS these recipes, Christine. I can't wait to try the lettuce wraps. You have really done well with trying new recipes this year.

  2. I want to try those chicken wraps!

  3. The chicken wraps are the best and so easy. Good with turkey or pork also!

  4. Thanks for some good sounding recipes. The chicken wraps are on my to-do list.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
