Recipes

I love take out food. It is some of my absolute favorite food in the entire world. I could eat it every single day of my life, that is just how much I love it. What I don’t love though, is the price tag associated with a delicious take out meal. For example — Chinese or Thai food. When I take my daughter out to lunch or dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant, I can expect to pay in the ballpark of around $25-$30 for the two of us to eat, which is SO silly.

By using these tips to make my own take out food at home, I can slash that price to around $15 and feed my entire family of four!

Anytime I can take a grilled cheese sandwich and bump up the flavors, I am gonna do just that. The other day Kayla and I was craving an Italian style sandwich, so we made a delicious Chicken Caprese Grilled Cheese made with Brownberry Whole Wheat Bread.

I have been on a shrimp kick lately. I just cannot seem to get enough of it. In fact, I think I have eaten shrimp every day in some form or fashion for the last couple of weeks. I feel like Bubba on Forrest Gump.

Anyway, since I have been eating the shrimp, I decided to see what other yummy seafood dishes I could find to make and I discovered 15 new recipes that I wanted to share with you that I found on the Foodie.com website.

Back in May, when I catered my first wedding, I made a dish that I had never made before. It was one that the bride requested — and I was really unsure of how it was going to taste, but I did it anyway — and it is now one of my most requested items at any picnic or event — My copycat recipe of Hooter’s Deep Fried Pickles.

My daughter is an animal lover. She has been since she was about a year old. When she was 5, she discovered the beauty of the hummingbird and how to make your own hummingbird food.

My mom used to keep feeders around all the time and they would sit out on her back porch and watch them flitter and fly around, going from one to the next. She always said when she got older, she was going to do the same thing. Now — at 16, she has her own feeders, makes her own food for them, and sits and takes amazing photos of them eating and flying around.

One of my new favorite foods is lettuce wraps. It started when my daughter and I went to a Thai restaurant and I had them. From the first bite I fell head over heels in love with them. Since then — I have recreated many different flavors of lettuce wraps. We have had Asian, BBQ Pork, Tacos, and now, I can add Mexican Grilled Chicken Lettuce Wraps to that list as well.

This, you see, is grilling season — and what better way to celebrate it than with my favorite Mexican dish. I topped these with delicious Red Gold Tomatoes, which added a serious punch of flavor.

A few weeks ago I was at the grocery store and picked up a loaf of Italian bread to have with dinner. I laid it on the counter over my all my bread when I got home, but somehow I forgot it was there. I found it a few days ago, and saw that it was pretty stale, but did not want to throw it out. I decided to slice it up and make Easy Homemade Croutons.

During the summertime, when everyone is at home ALL THE TIME, my grocery budget can go out the window, especially around the 1st and the 15th of the month. When weekends like the one that just past hit, I head to my arsenal of recipes to create some budget friendly meals, so that we can get back on track and back on our normal spending routine. That was how I came across this delicious new recipe I created for BBQ Chicken Nachos with Avocado Ranch Dressing.
