Beer Battered Fish Tacos

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Batter”. Typically, I usually stay away from deep fried foods. Not for any health reason, even though that is a good one, but more because I have never been a huge fan of deep fried food. These fish tacos might have changed my mind. Not only was the whole taco delicious, the cod had an amazing flavour.

California Burrito

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “California Cuisine”. I grew up in California so when I saw this theme, I got a little nostalgic. Just the other week I was talking about how much I miss California burritos. I mean beans and rice are good and all but some times I want fries in my burrito. This definitely cured my craving for one and I am glad that I have enough to make a few more.

Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “5 Ingredients or Less”. I kind of cheated and did not count the salt and pepper because most food has salt and pepper in it. Normally, I do not like “healthier” substitutions but this was really delicious. I’m not sure if this is better than normal chicken enchiladas but I am glad I made this.

Spicy Mexican Minestrone Stew

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Italian”. Since I cook Italian food all of the time, I decided to  change things up and try kind of a Mexican-Italian fusion meal. Well, it turned out really good and there are only a few things that I would change.

Asian Marinated Steak Fajitas

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “rice”. Obviously, you can see no rice in the faijitas but I will probably make another post for those. I have made fajitas in the passed but never asian marinated and I can honestly say that this will be my new go to whenever I want to make Fajitas. The difference in flavour is not huge but it is very subtle and very welcomed without too overbearing. I think next time, I might add a different spice or sauce to go with it. Also, I would go with fresh ginger next time for more ginger flavour.

Chicken Mole

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “From A Can” and my second theme was “Coffee”. While I have made mole before, last time I definitely did not use coffee. Since the last time I made it was so long ago, I really cannot say which way tasted better. I think I like them both! This was really good and next time there are very few changes I would make like making the Mole a little hotter. The only reason I did not this time is because I am always hesitant about adding too much heat to recipes when serving food to other people. I should have known better. Thought for next time though! I also had to stop myself from eating the pepitas before cooking… I have a problem.
