Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

This summer I didn’t Blog very many recipes– partly because we were just so busy, but also because I had a string of really bad luck, where few recipes I made were actually good enough to be posted. Then this week it all turned around, with a string of awesome recipes that have become some of my new all time favorites!

Shrimp Curry with Mango

Shrimp Curry with Mango

I can’t believe it’s nearing the end of August, the summertime, light, warm evenings that make food blogging fun and simple! I also can’t believe with September approaching that I would have been doing this for THREE years. To some, that might not seem like a long time, but in my perspective, I started cooking with a one year old on my hip and a two year old wrapped around one of my legs, and now they’re both in school!! {Tear} :-( Life has gotten a little simpler and quieter, which is kind of sad in many ways, but it does give me a little more time to dedicate to creating more delicious recipes! The further along I go in this “process” the more I learn about myself, my tastes, my families tastes and my cooking style– and I have so much more to learn i’m excited to keep on going! One thing I have discovered is how much I LOVE making and eating Indian food!! Some of my absolute BEST, most favorite recipes are in my Indian cooking section, and I am so excited to add one more on there today!

Crispy Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Ranch Lime Dressing

Crispy Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Ranch Lime Dressing

I have been excited to share this recipe for a while now! I made these crispy shrimp tacos this summer on a whim without writing down the recipe or taking any pictures. Maybe because I didn’t have very high expectations, or was feeling a little burnt out with blogging and was kinda busy– but as soon as I tasted them, I instantly regretted it. Not only were these tacos the BEST I have ever made {which doesn’t tell you a whole lot, because I really haven’t made very many!} But they are some of the best I have ever tasted, ever!! The ranch avocado lime dressing is so thick and rich and creamy–that it doesn’t taste healthy at all! Even though it really is! The shrimp are crunchy and perfect, and the coleslaw… I could eat by itself for days! It has the perfect combination of heat, saltiness, sweetness and acidity. I am in love with this recipe–I think it’s one of the best I have posted yet! So I hope you guys all love it too!

Salmon with Orange Pistachio Chimichurri

Salmon with Orange Pistachio Chimichurri

Life has been pretty crazy this summer, and I have gotten WAY off track with the blogging! I wish I could say that things will slow down, and I will be posting as often as I used to– but the truth is, life is only going to get crazier from here on out, as we anticipate some big, exciting changes! But if there is one thing I have learned from taking a step back, and prioritizing my time, it’s that quality is always more important than quantity. So although I won’t be posting as MANY recipes, the ones I do post from here on out will be much better!!
