Dana and I were organizing our cabinets the other day and we found our pasta attachment for our kitchen aid mixer. Looking at it, we knew what our next recipe was going to be. We are making fresh pasta. This recipe is an all-purpose flour based pasta. I would have loved to make a semolina flour based pasta, but I was unable to find semolina flour at any of my local stores. I have some on order. I will make a semolina pasta soon!
Happy Memorial Day 2015! First and foremost, I want to thank all of the soldiers and veterans out there. Because of you guys and gals we can enjoy our freedom and we have the ability to celebrate Memorial Day. Thank You!
Memorial Day is the official start of the summer and nothing screams summer like, BBQ and grilling! To help out with your outdoor party, I have compiled a few tips, tricks and recipes to share with you all!
I love Chipotle! It is delicious, so I decided to recreate a burrito bowl. I utilized my fajitas seasoning, skirt steak, some black beans, cilantro lime rice, salsa and guacamole to create one of the greatest meals known to man. Dana said it was her favorite meal ever! That says a lot. The combination of rice, black beans, meat and cheese is Amazing!
So I am slowly building up the ingredients to make my own burrito bowl. So far we have made some kick butt salsa and guacamole. Next in line is the cilantro lime rice. I have tried this a bunch of different ways, but this is my favorite. It uses lime zest and lime juice. Make sure to zest the limes before juicing. Learned that the hard way. This recipe does a great job recreating the cilantro lime rice from the burrito chains. This makes enough for 4 burrito bowls.
