Sheet Pan Sweet and Spicy Pork

I’d put this recipe in the “perfectly ok” category (though my photo of this on Instagram was oddly popular for some reason). We both thought it was a nice, if unremarkable, weeknight dinner. I don’t make sheet pan suppers that often so it was a nice change.

I believe I halved this recipe but I’m not sure so I’m including the full version.

Peanut Butter Cookies

I rarely bake, but saw this recipe on Smitten Kitchen and I just felt the need to make it. A nice and pretty easy cookies recipe. We shared this with a friend who just had a kid so we didn’t eat them all 😀

Paleo Pad See Ew

I loved this dish! I swapped in flank steak for chicken (I’m sure chicken would also be good) and I would say I didn’t even really miss the noodles.

Cock-A-Leekie Soup with Prunes

Honestly, I didn’t really like this recipe (and John has made a different version of this recipe I can’t find in the archives, but prefer). But I’m noting it for the sake of this year’s challenge. I think this would have been better if I hadn’t simmered the prunes and just had used them for garnish.

Paleo Kung Pao Chicken

Terrific recipe that we’ll definitely make again (we basically had no leftovers for lunches because we liked it so much). Served this with snap peas and a riff on this radish slaw that we liked ok but not enough to make a separate entry for.

Clean-Out-the-Fridge Italian Wedding Soup

I hope I remember what I did here because I really just improvised this soup to use up some stray ingredients. Turned out delicious, though.

Crawfish Bisque

This is my first time making a true bisque where you thicken with rice, grind the actual shells in, etc. It was an adventure! My first round blending and straining resulted in bisque that tasted like…shell. But I had made it ahead, so I blended again for a good 5-8 minutes while finishing up the salad we had for dinner and it definitely improved the consistency. A fun dish to make, prompted by my finding crawfish in the freezer section of my fish market. I followed this recipe’s crawfish variation but halved it.

Recipe Variation: Kale Chips with Nutritional Yeast

I made some quick kale chips tonight and decided to flavor them with nutritional yeast. It was a nice combo! We had them with city chicken and mashed cauliflower.

Miso Soup with Clams

I always enjoy clams in my miso soup (a couple of restaurants around here prepare this version). I followed this recipe as a guide though I used regular dashi versus kombu dashi.
