Well, it's that time again! The year's halfway over already, and we're definitely into summer now. Seems like this first half of the year just flew by, and we'll celebrate Independence Day later this week.
I also changed up the recipe formats. Last time, I added step by step images in the “Methods” section. This time, I am adding some information into the “Materials” section of each recipe. Instead of just having one measurement, I’m using mass, weight, volume, and number now. Not every ingredient will have all the measurements, but I’m thinking it’ll make it easier since some folks like to use volume measurements and some folks like to use mass measurements. I’m also including number since some recipes call for 1 onion, but is it a large one? A small one? A lot of the time, it’s not a big deal. However, sometimes it does matter. It’ll also allow folks who like to use mass measurements and folks who like to just use number measurements to use the same recipe without conversions. (Although I am working on a set of conversions!) Please help me out by letting me know what you think of these features! Any other changes or improvements you’d like to see? Just contact me or leave a comment. :)
Without further ado, here's the Top 5 roundup for June!
Not the most photogenic food, this Asian Cole Slaw's still got some great taste with peanuts, ginger, lime, and soy sauce flavorings.
My first time using salsa in a quesadilla! We enjoyed these cheesy and creamy avocado bean quesadillas filled with corn, pico de gallo, and a bit of onion.
3. Bacon BitsPin It
A surprise hit! I guess I shouldn't be so surprised since who doesn't like bacon? Now you can make your own bacon bits at home!
2. Cole SlawPin It
Just a basic cole slaw - and the beginnings of a series on cole slaw! Come back Wednesday to see what new cole slaw I'm sharing. :)
Pierogies are kinda like Polish pot stickers, and we tried them for the first time at Knoebel's. Then, I wanted to make my own! We really enjoyed these potato and cheese pierogies, but you really can't go too far wrong with taters and cheese in my book!
