Ginger Turmeric Kombucha

John got me this very cool kombucha jar for Christmas. This was my first attempt making it! This is not so much a recipe as a walk through what I did for my first batch. I thought the flavor here was excellent, but the carbonation was quite light.

Dad’s Barbecue Chicken, Variation 1

Dad made grilled chicken a few different ways growing up. This is the closest one to what I think of as traditional “barbecue” chicken. This turned out quite well, but note that my dad’s instructions for this are pretty vague, so there was some improvising here.

Black and White Cookies

John and I both love these classic cookies from NY, so I decided to make them for Valentine’s Day. I’m not a great baker and these were a little rushed (and it was hard to estimate/shape the cookie properly) but they tasted pretty authentic to me.

Tandoori Salmon

This is one of my favorite salmon recipes that I’ve made. We served with dal, raita, and a makeshift cilantro chutney.

Enchiladas Roll Ups

These were ok. I didn’t really miss the tortillas, but I think maybe I wasn’t wowed by the brand of enchilada sauce I used. Served with pinto beans and a Spanish spin on broccoli rice that didn’t turn out that great.

Tofu and Broccoli Green Curry

A rare vegetarian dinner for us that we both liked. Served with cauliflower rice. Used this recipe with some minor adaptations.

Grilled Cube Steak

Not one of my favorite family meals growing up. But these turned out all right, and were a good fit for the Frederick family food challenge, since we had them frequently.
