Culinary re-cap

At the start of this year I had a goal.  That goal was to try a new recipe at least every 2 weeks for the year of 2013.  Well, we are now 8 months into 2013, and I'm not sure I can claim 16 truly new recipes (which sounds kinda sad when I put it like that actually) but of the ones I have tried there hasn't been even one Flop!
I will also admit that while I absolutely Love to cook, I definitely Love it just a little bit more when I have other people besides just me to cook for, even if it's just me and my Man.
This roasted scallion & corn with crispy chicken thighs was a hit, and compared to other recipes I have pulled together, very simple.

This pork made its appearance one night where I was lucky enough to have a family friend visit with her daughter, And to have my hubby home the same night!  (I'll be back with an update as to why Hubs was home soon.)

Very rarely do I use any type of food (besides pastry dough) that's already made for me in the frozen section at the store, but for this recipe I made an exception.  Fish sticks from the store, and chopped avocado, tomato, and celery made awesome fish tacos when paired with a simple cilantro & lime sour cream.

This one was the most recent culinary adventure in my kitchen.  I did have friends coming over, so I attempted to put together a clam-bake type meal.  Cubed potatoes, carrots, & onion, 1lb of Mussels, a few steamers, and Shrimp to cap it off.  All those delicious items steamed in a garlic wine broth, and made an amazing meal for us to enjoy together!

oh, and roasted corn cooked in foil with butter in the oven!
