On Baked Soy & Ginger Cod

It’s official…next week I go back to the office twice a week, and it’s going to be real bizarre to say the least. I’m going to be planning on bringing gazpacho with me while it’s hot out, and enjoying the afternoon’s along the river walk like I used to pre-COVID. It’ll definitely be a transition,…

On Creole Shrimp & Corn

I feel like my weekends are spent not cooking, which is awesome in its own way, so again, while this might look intimidating, you can definitely throw this together on the fly. I think in total this recipe only took me about 30 minutes total to cook up, and the most labor-intensive piece was just…

On the Best Tuna Salad

One of my favorite sandwiches of tall time is a good tuna salad sandwich, but specifically the kind of tuna salad with not a ton of mayo, any egg pieces, or just mushy tuna – it’s gotta be that big chunky kind of tuna (aka. fancy canned tuna). To find said fancy tuna, it’s not…

On Mississippi Pot Roast & Roasted Carrots

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! It’s 2021, and I think this will be a MUCH better year than last year. We are OFFICIALLY working on some projects in our new home, which is AMAZING and we’re so excited to get the big things done (replacing the knob and tube wiring for one, except in the kitch,…

On Creamy Artichoke & Crab Dip

2020 has been…I don’t know even know, and I’m sure a lot of you feel the same. A lot of things (good and bad) have happened, as I know many of you have experienced as well. Last week I did not post anything because my grandfather passed away on Monday. He was an amazing person,…

On Salmon & Soba Noodles

Similar to last week’s post, this recipe was inspired by some of the additional filets that we took home from our Charter excursion in Buffalo! The recipe that was used for the base was incredibly boring to say the least (which is why I’m going to refrain from mentioning it by name because that’s not…

On Cooking with Coworkers: Lobster & Green Pea Risotto

Welcome back to another edition of Cooking with Coworkers! This week, as I mentioned last week, was a risotto dish that I adjusted for the tastes of my familia (salmon is not a fave for most). But that’s the beautiful thing about risotto isn’t it? It’s basically a blank canvas once you get the foundation…

On Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Dear Readers, Let’s just say I’m starting to finally come up for air. It’s been a busy couple of months, but now, with a couple large events almost behind me, I can start to resurface and spend a little more time on writing something more than, “New Recipe! Enjoy!” That’s not really helpful to those…

On Shrimp Boil Foil Packets

Adulting is hard. But of course it is…I don’t think anyone has ever woken up and said that being an adult in our current world was easy, especially when you’re part of the world that lives paycheck to paycheck and/or has a bunch of student loans that don’t seem to really go anywhere…the last few…

On Ice Cube Tray Sushi

It’s really not as weird as it sounds, and in fact, this trick is pretty clever! I was perusing Pinterest (as one is wont to do when on the train or in front of the TV) and I came across this “Make Sushi At Home” image and I was very curious! So much so, that…

On Mussels Charmoula (Senate Style)

As if I haven’t done enough big adulting things this month, here’s my last bit of big news! THIS CHICK GOT A NEW JOB as a Marketing Coordinator for a law firm! Now, I can’t announce exactly where I’ll be working for another week (I do have a LinkedIn page for anyone interested in creeping…

On Trout and More Wedding Shinanigans

It is with a huge relief that I say wedding planning is wrapping up! (PHEW!) But what a journey! It’s now been over a year since we got engaged and started to plan our future together, and this past weekend was no exception. Frankie got his ring in on Thursday (CHECK!), Saturday morning I had…
