Delicious Nacho Bake and Strawberry CheesecakeTurnovers

Strawberry Turnovers on Canadian Living's cover

With My Other Half coming home from a short vacation on Monday, I thought it would be nice to make one of his favourite things… i.e. anything baked with ground beef, cheese and a crusty topping.

I was watching Best Recipes Ever, as  often do (although I must admit I find her recipes a bit too easy sometimes) and she made this yummy-looking Upside-down Nacho Bake. I knew he’s love it, so I set to work.

It was definitely easy and fast. However, it didn’t have enough kick for me (I’d use two hot peppers next time, for sure). Alternatively, I would use a taco seasoning package instead of all the spices and herbs the recipe calls for. It was just a little bland for my liking.

I will say, however, that it makes much more than four servings as the recipe suggests, and that My Other Half really liked it. I served it with salsa and sour cream, which was great.

For dessert I made the mouth-watering Strawberry Cheesecake Turnovers featured on this month’s cover of Canada Living. They are SO GOOD and SO EASY. You basically just buy puff pastry, stuff it with a strawberry sauce you make and a sweet cream cheese filling and bake. They were to die for! Definitely making those again.

There you have it – a complete summer meal.  And now that my boyfriend’s back in town, there will be LOTS more BBQ recipes to come!
