Don’t panic! I’m a little early with my Cinco de Mayo recipes. There is still plenty of time to plan a fun celebration. With Mother’s Day right after, I wanted time to show to post those recipes too. I’ve been enjoying doing theme recipes and I hope you have too. These were all about reliving a cruise we took with a stop in Cancun. What a fun time it was. Of course, it is making my desire to take another vacation even worse. I cannot wait for June when we will go on another cruise.
I’m working on Father’s Day recipes now. I just haven’t decided what to make BBQ, something refined like a crown roast of pork or seafood or just a big honky piece of meat. My husband and Dad like us to make a bunch of different appetizers from around the world. So far the popular vote seems to be BBQ. What type of recipes would you like to see for Father’s Day? I have been holding a few BBQ recipes for Memorial Day and July 4th. I need to decide quickly and start working on recipes.
Some recipes take a lot longer than others to get right. I have a long list of recipes that have not turned out at all. I keep them in a folder marked under construction. From time to time I will pick one to work on. The problem is I need to be inspired and get quite frustrated when a recipe does not turn out. My type A personality comes out in full force. If a recipe is close to the way I want, than I take it as a challenge to keep trying until I get it to taste like I would like. I have on recipe that took me about 6 months to get right. I had to put it aside for a few months until I thought of a different way to approach the recipe. I am so glad I did because it has become my favorite recipe ever. I haven’t shared it yet. It would be a perfect Valentine’s meal but I’m not sure I can wait that long. Did I already mention patience is not my strong suit?
I would love to some feedback about the recipes. Do you have recipes that you liked? What about ones that did not turn out? Let me know I would love to know even if you did not like. I would appreciate some specifics so I can see if it was an error in my recipe or just different tastes.
