1. A fish dish.
Enter salmon. This is a Giada De Laurentils recipe, and she says it is at an "intermediate" level. Challenge accepted, G-Laur. It's called "Salmon in Lemon Brodetto with Pea Puree"... what is brodetto????? I have no idea. Here is the recipe. Click.
2. A steak dish.
The steak dish I have in mind actually isn't the picture above because FOR SOME REASON BOBBY FLAY DOESN'T FEEL IT NECESSARY TO INCLUDE PICTURES OF ALL OF HIS RECIPES, A LITTLE SHADY IF YOU ASK ME.
Anyways, I'm going to tackle an intermediate level "Grilled Steak w/ Caramelized Onions, Blue Cheese, Wild Mushroom Relish, and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce," which frankly, I was sold at "caramelized onions." I'm going to change out blue cheese for goat cheese, however. Blue cheese is rank. click.
3. A chicken dish.
This is called "Lemon-Herb butter-basted Chicken" by Sandra Lee. It is on the "easy" level, but since it is Sandra Lee, it is actually SUPER SWEET SIMPLE SAUCY AND ALWAYS SEMI-HOMEMADE AND SUPER SIMPLE. click.
4. A lasagna dish.
This is called "The Lady and Sons Lasagna Recipe" and I'm not sure why it's called that. It's by Paula Deen, PRE-WEIGHT LOSS, so I'm sure it's chock full of butter balls and fried Twinkies. I mean, just look at that. That top layer MAY LOOK like cheese, but it is probably just melted sticks of butter. This is supposed to be easy. click here.
5. An enchilada dish.
Yum. Look at that cilantro. Yum. This chicken enchilada dish is by Rachel Ray. Which means it will only take me 30 minutes or less!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!
And to the friends reading this that will benefit from my new cooking goals, you know who you are, and YOU GET TO BRING THE WINE AND SIDE DISHES.
