Cooking and Recipies: Part 1

I have started developing an interest in cooking more interesting things lately. However I am always looking for quick, and low ingredient recipes.If its healthy, that's a plus!

Since moving to a country that uses the Metric system and measures temperature in Celsius, I have had to convert many recipes to make them work here. I had to buy a measuring cup that had milliliters and cups on it, and then convert the temperature to its equivalent in degrees Celsius. 

I’m the type of person that bookmarks yummy recipes when I come across them, so I have a lot waiting to be tested. There are many recipes that I just cannot make because I don’t have the ingredients here. I’m slowly finding recipes made in South Africa and other countries that have ingredients that I can find in SA.



So here are some of the meals that I am planning on making sometime in the future (they aren’t that healthy though):
Butternut Squash Fries (source)



Buttermilk Baked Chicken (source)
"Army" Chicken (source)














Buffalo Chicken Dip (source)
Dips:



I’ll make an entirely separate post with all the dessert recipes!



What are some recipes that you want to make soon? I’d love to see what you’ve got planned for the table!





P.S.- I misspelled recipe every time I wrote it- apparently I like to spell it recipie. Thanks spell chnck!

Some yummi recipes, I like the sound of the Butternut squash fries, as I love roast vegetables, have copied the recipe and will give it a try soon. Will also try the crustless quiche, as I eat gluten free, so unless I make gluten free pastry when I don't feel too lazy, I rather go pastry free. Good luck with all the cooking.
