Tips-y Tuesdays: Last Minute Tips

Sometimes I go to make a recipe and think I have all of the necessary ingredients but then forget something. This seems to happen a lot lately. Almost like I’m sleep-deprived? Hahaha. Well, anyway, it’s not like I have all of the time to just run out and pick up what I need when I realize it, so I have learned to be flexible.

Grilled Baby Back Ribs

I have made baby back ribs multiple times this year. The last time I made them, I followed a slow cooker recipe for half and used this grill recipe for the other half. We decided that the tenderness was a bit better with the slow cooker (plus you don’t need your grill) but that the grill was better for flavor. Next time I might try it all in the oven with the same recipe and see how it goes.

Sous Vide Sesame Salmon

Continuing from my last post with sous vide shrimp, I realized I hadn’t shared a sous vide salmon recipe on here even though I make it regularly. It doesn’t look the prettiest but it is always cooked nicely and not overcooked.

Sous Vide Shrimp Scampi

I’ve talked before about how I like cooking seafood sous vide style because it helps keep the food tender and still tasty. When I was visiting one of our special grocery stores I saw they had shrimp on sale. I wasn’t planning on getting any originally but decided to get them with the sale. But, this meant that I needed to have a recipe for them.

Last minute I changed my mind from making a recipe I had made before and instead tried this one. It was so good and makes shrimp scampi super easy. The shrimp tastes like lemon and garlic, but also has a strong shrimp flavor. AND it isn’t overcooked!

IHOP Copycat Pancakes

When we were in Maryland this summer, we ate at lots of breakfast places and had lots of pancakes, waffles, etc. Well, my favorite waffles were actually at IHOP! I really liked how they had a touch of sweetness, but were so so so fluffy. I figured someone must have duplicated the recipe, and I was shocked to find that I could dump everything in a blender to get tasty pancakes!

Za’atar Chicken with Tahini and Pine Nuts

Here we have a recipe that I made not that long ago, and I still had the tab open on my browser. When I refreshed the tab to look at it again, well, it’s gone! I tried searching for it and found a partial version of it, but it appears that the website is gone. This is not the exact one since I made changes, anyway, but I guess it doesn’t matter at this point.
