Culinary Adventures

We have decided to get a little more adventurous in the kitchen over the last few weeks... Pinterest has been a HUGE source of inspiration and our favorite Food Network show is back with a new season, so the possibilities are endless! Cue the drool...

We tried a copy cat recipe from this site; the salsas were pretty good, but we were disappointed in the chicken. Luckily, we found a barbacoa recipe on, so we'll be trying that one next week! I think the best recipe we've tried was this recipe for Lemon Cilantro Quinoa and Chickpea Salad. It makes a ton of food and worked as my lunch all week. Yum! Amit loved the Baked Pesto Chicken that I made Friday night. We added some homemade garlic bread, and it was perfect!
Hungry yet?

Now on to even better food! (Hard to believe, right??) We LOVE watching The Sandwich King on Food Network. He makes amazing sandwiches, is a true Chicagoan, and throws homemade Giardiniera on everything. Awesome! We tried his recipe for meatloaf sandwiches and they were amazing! His meatloaf was unreal, it is now my go-to meatloaf recipe.

Next on our list is his recipe for Italian Beef! I'm hoping and prayin' that it is almost as good as the real thing... That would be awesome! 


  1. Yay for culinary experimentation!!! And I LOVE The Sandwich King! I legit wish he wasn't married, haha!
    Can't wait to try that quinoa recipe!!

  2. The quinoa is FANTASTIC! I highly recommend it. I love his recipes, but wish he threw in a few healthier choices in there... I don't think I could live on such high-fat foods. ;-)
