From Your Kitchen to Mine: Recipes 66-70

I have 5 brand-spankin'-new recipes from 5 different blogs to share with you all today!  It's been a couple...well, maybe a few weeks since I shared my last batch of recipes.  Needless to say, I'm excited to be back!! 

>>If you have recipes you'd like me to sample, please make sure to check out the information at the bottom of the page to learn more<<

 Just a reminder, my goal for the remaining recipes is to focus on healthy options.

Let's take a look!

Check out the recipes!

Mango Quinoa Salad
This recipe came from Sara at Our Best Bites.  I was so excited when I saw this recipe.  I love quinoa, I love black beans, and I love mango.  What a perfect combination.  Of course, there were some other great additions to the dish that give it just the right flavor.  You can probably tell from the photographs that it's loaded with healthy and yummy goodness!  Scott and I both really loved this dish and I need to make it again soon.  It's great as a standalone dish, but I think next time I'll take Sara's recommendation and pair it with grilled chicken or fish.  Thank you, Sara!

Red Curry, Coconut, and Ginger Infused
Steamed Clams
This recipe came from Alice at Savory Sweet Life.  I actually found this recipe while perusing one of my sisters' Pinterest boards a couple of months ago.  I made it for Scott and my parents a few weeks ago after building up enough courage to try it myself--it was my first attempt at steaming clams.  Wow!  So easy and so yummy.  We ate these while hanging out on the back porch on a beautiful sunny day.  I envision making some of these for a get-together with friends this summer.  I think I used a bit more curry than the recipe called for so my batch was a little on the spicy side (which was alright with us), but I may go a little easy on it next time just in case there are some folks who aren't fans of super spicy dishes. Thanks, Alice!!

Baked Fish With Pesto

This recipe came from Maison Cupcake.  Thank goodness for Sarah's easy recipe on the busy night that I made this.  No kidding, this was such a simple dish to make--20 minutes tops!  But the best part is, it was as easy going down as it was to make.  Yes, my friends, this was a tasty dish. For any of you who have little ones who like to help out in the kitchen, this may be a good one to cook with them.  Sarah has some really cute pictures of her son helping her put this dish together.  Thank you, Sarah!  We loved it :).

Skillet Cajun Spiced Flounder with Tomatoes

I found this recipe on SkinnyTaste.com, and I'm so glad I did!  With only seven ingredients and a few short steps, I was surprised by how professional this dish tasted.  I couldn't believe that I actually made it--and in such a short amount of time! Altogether, this dish took less than 25 minutes to prepare.  Scott and I both enjoyed the flavors; it will make your kitchen smell amazing!  Just be careful not to try to eat your meal too fast and burn your tongue. {Look, you can see the steam coming off of the dish in the photograph below}.  Thanks, Gina!

Cornmeal Crusted Cod with Wild Mushrooms and Red Potatoes

I found this final recipe on Cosmo Mom With a Twist of Lyme.  Like the flounder dish above, this meal was a one skillet wonder--gotta love them!  It didn't take much time to put this together.  I could tell from the ingredients that this was going to be a super healthy and super clean meal.  On her ingredients list, Brandi mentioned substituting cod for trout.  I wasn't able to find trout in the first store I was in, and I didn't feel like going on a "wild fish" chase to look for it that day, so I stuck with cod.  Maybe next time I'll use trout and see how that tastes.  Also, I think I'll buy some lemons to squeeze a little juice over the cod to give the dish a little more pizazz.  All-in-all, Scott and I were very satisfied after eating this and had enough for leftovers.  Oh, we definitely raced each other to the fridge for these leftovers the next day.  Thank you, Brandi!
