Fish Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Slaw

Fish tacos are pretty straightforward. They require a tortilla, fish, and slaw. And that’s pretty much it. Which makes them perfect for you.


Elote (Mexican Street Corn)

You’re probably thinking that’s butter on that corn. But you’re wrong. It’s mayonnaise. M-A-Y-O-N-N-A-I-S-E. And believe me, you will like it. Because it basically serves the same purpose as butter, but with lots more flavor. Especially if you like the cracked pepper olive oil mayo, which we obviously do.

Feta Chicken

This was somehow one of Chris’s favorite dishes when we first started dating. He would tell everyone about it, even though I seemed to screw up at least one element every time I made it. Maybe that’s a testament to its deliciousness, that it can be messed up 1,000 different ways and still come out fine.

Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

If you like strawberry cake, you will like strawberry cookies. These are one of the only acceptable uses of fake strawberry flavor. Though these can really be cookies from any kind of cake mix. They’re not picky.

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I will never understand red velvet cake. It is not chocolatey enough to be a chocolate cake. It does not taste like anything else. It tastes like red. Cake should have a clear flavor. Clearly I missed a Southern culture lesson.

Homemade Oreos

Yes, this is real. Yes, they taste Oreo-ish. Yes, Chris will devour them. Yes, Dutch cocoa is essential. Yes, they are worth the effort.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

These are my dad’s absolute favorite. Something about macadamia nuts cooking activates my peanut-spidey-sense, but once these are cool, even I think they’re irresistible.

Cake Batter Pudding Cookies

These are the mother of all sugar cookies. Also, they need sprinkles in the batter. Or Funfetti cake mix. Just trust me on this.
