From Your Kitchen To Mine: Recipes 61-65

Hello Everyone!  I'm getting back on track on all things Foreign Domestic-related.  Slowly but surely, I'm getting back into a good pattern.  Well, I'm happy to share that I have 5 new recipes from 5 new blogs today.  I actually prepared all of these before leaving for Uganda, but they were all so delicious, I remember them vividly!

 As you may remember, my goal for the remaining recipes is to focus on healthy options.

Let's take a look!

Baked Salmon Wrapped in Phyllo

This recipe came from Home Cooking in Montana.  After learning how to cook with phyllo dough thru this series, I love looking for new ways to use it in recipes.  When I saw Ellie's recipe, 2 things stood out.  1.  The recipe called for very few ingredients, 2. The recipe looked very easy.  This, my friends, is a winning combination in The Foreign Domestic's kitchen--of course taste matters too.  Guess what?  It was very tasty.  Scott and I loved this dish.  There was a lot of flavor and the salmon stayed moist and tender wrapped in the phyllo dough.  I think I'm going to try this one again soon!  Thank you, Ellie!

Crispy Flounder


This recipe came from Chocolate & Carrots.  Okay, I know what you're thinking.  You're probably thinking something like this: "Umm...Kirsten, the title of this recipe says crispy flounder...yours doesn't look crispy at all!"  I know, it was a sad day in the kitchen when I attempted this recipe.  After all, my crispy flounder looks absolutely nothing like the beautiful picture Caroline has accompanying her recipe.  My flounder just fell apart--I don't think I dried it off well enough before cooking it.  Well, it was a sad day until Scott and I sat down and tasted it.  The appearance was lost, but the taste was still there.  I don't there's anything I can do to convince you of it, so you'll just have to try it and find out!  Thank you, Caroline, this was super tasty--and your pics are awesome :)!

Mexican Stuffed Peppers 
with Quinoa & Black Beans


I actually found this recipe on Pinterest.  After my  "Must Try, Must Try" blinker went off, I traced the link back to Emily at One Lovely Life.  I love quinoa, I love peppers, and I love Mexican flavors--so you can't go wrong.  The recipe was very straight forward and easy to follow.  I decided to gut the peppers and leave them whole to fill them up, but if you check out Emily's recipe, you'll see a different way to do it.  Her way is probably makes consumption much easier.  This was a really tasty dish--next time, I'll cut my peppers like Emily.  Thanks, Emily!

Sweet Potato Pizza 
with Kale and Carmelized Onions

This recipe came from Oh My Veggies.  My sister-in-law, Julie, found this recipe, tried it, loved it, and shared it with me--SO glad she did.  This pizza was A-mazing!  I have to admit, I was a little unsure about it before I made it--I've never used sweet potatoes on pizza, let alone replaced the pizza sauce with mashed sweet potatoes.  But WOW--there were some amazing flavor combinations on this pizza.  The night I made this pizza, I actually made a more traditional pizza to go along with it...just in case.  We hardly even touched the other pizza!  I'm definitely going to make this one again, and very soon.  Just looking at the pictures makes me want another taste.  Thanks, Kiersten!  P.S. Love your name ;)

Curried Quinoa

The final recipe came from Lou at Living Lou.  As I mentioned earlier, I love quinoa.  The recipe was very easy and turned out to be really tasty as well.  The curried quinoa makes for a really nice side dish or, if you'd like a larger serving, it could be a main dish as well.  Scott and I both enjoyed it and we went back for seconds.  Thanks so much, Lou!

  1. Thanks so much for the mention--this totally made my day! I think just about everyone who tries this pizza is skeptical at first and then they end up liking it. ;) I know it's weird, but it works. And I love your name too, ha ha--people always want to spell mine like yours, sometimes I think I might as well drop the e!
