Dinner at DIYShowOff: Tandoori Chicken and Turmeric Rice

I love DIY but Mr. DIY’s preferred hobby is cooking. I don’t mind cooking. Eh. It’s not my favorite thing to do but it’s his passion. Nearly every evening, he unwinds after a stressful day by cooking a delicious dinner for two. Who am I to argue? So, every once in a while, I’ll be sharing Russ’ recipes in a Dinner at DIYShow Off series. This week’s dinner recipes include turmeric rice and tandoori chicken:

He often asks me what I’d like for dinner. This is usually my #1 response. I don’t eat much but when this is being served, I manage two helpings. It’s one of my top favorite dinners. Let us know if you try it! 

What’s your favorite homemade dinner?

Summer BBQ Menu and Summer Recipe Inspiration Link Party

What? Recipes at DIY Show Off? Well, cooking is a do-it-yourself process, right? In our home, my husband does the cooking (not because I can’t but because he really enjoys it). We host a lot of dinner parties, summer cook outs and picnics and recently held a Mother’s Day BBQ (see the beautiful chandelier planters our guests and I made). Oops…back to HIS passion FOOD! and the reason for today’s blog post…our BBQ menu and a Summer Recipe Inspiration Link Party. Our BBQ menu included:

All of that food serves our family gatherings of 15-20 people with plenty to eat, decent serving sizes and even seconds (in some cases thirds!).
