What to Cook Today

I’ve been a little uninspired with my cooking lately. It’s hard to get excited when it’s day whatever of everything being closed. To try and curb this cooking malaise and get some inspiration back, I’ve decided to make myself a list of things to try out this coming month. That way, I can check back with you throughout to let you know how things went and what was worth the trouble. Without further ado, I bring you (hopefully) some procrasticooking/procrastibaking activities to pass the time, perhaps when those rainy days hit and you can’t be outside. At least that’s my plan.

Baking:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Boring? Perhaps. Word on the street is that these are some of the best cookies you can make. I’m up for finding out just how good they are. Source: Bon Appetit

Rhubarb Custard Bars

I have rhubarb growing in my garden and need something to use up those stalks before it really goes to seed with all this warm weather. Don’t fail me now, NYT Cooking!

Garlic Smeared Bread Bites with Burrata and Grilled Lemon

Any excuse to use burrata and I’m there. This recipe is straddling the worlds of cooking and baking. The dough is started in the oven and finished on the bbq. I also like the option of either making my own pizza dough, if I’m feeling particularly bored, or using the store bought stuff. Source: LCBO Food & Drink magazine

Cooking:

Smashed Potatoes with Thai-Style Chilli and Herb Sauce

An interesting looking side for the beginning of BBQ season. Luckily, the ingredients are all things I have on hand all the time. Source: NYT Cooking

Honey-Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

I’ve been on a bit of a tear with the tacos lately. Here’s hoping I can both convince my husband to eat shrimp and hit the jackpot with another solid recipe. Fingers crossed! Source: Bon Appetit

In the meantime, I’ve been working on my vegetable garden this year. It’s the first time that I’ve started everything from seeds and not had a mix of seeds and starter plants. We have tomatoes, celery, carrots, potatoes, onions, and kale. Here’s hoping they keep growing!
