Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 12

Recipe 288
Lime-and-Honey Glazed Salmon with Warm Black Bean and Corn Salad
Matt rating *** (Julie rated it *****)

Ingredients used:

Red onion
Garlic cloves
Crushed red pepper flakes
Ground cumin
Chili powder
Salmon fillets
Red bell pepper
Corn kernels
Chicken stock
Black beans
Baby spinach

This is the second fish dish I made this week and once again I have to give Matt props for at least sampling the salmon. Once again I was shocked that he gave it a decent rating! Blake and Julie were good sports about it because this was the first time I've ever made salmon and it came out a little "blackened" on one side, but Julie says she likes it that way...haha! All in all it really did have pretty good flavor. The black bean and corn salad was really yummy and had a nice little kick to it and both Blake and Julie went back for seconds of it, and took the leftovers home! Lucky for Matt, there are only like two or three other salmon recipes in this cookbook and I'll wait awhile to make it for his sake :).

My mom is flying in from South Carolina tomorrow evening so I will probably not be able to make dinner and it will be a little hit and miss while she is in town. Rest assured, I will continue cooking through this recipe book and this blog. Can't believe I've made twelve recipes already! What is that, like 353 to go or something...sheesh!
