On Seared Scallops with Pea and Pesto Orzo

Dear readers, SEAFOOD DOUBLE FEATURE!!! That’s right, you get TWO recipes this week because I was in over my head and didn’t get my act completely together. This time though, you get one of my FAVORITE pieces of seafood: Scallops! What was different for me this time cooking them was I actually had a non-stick…

On Seared Salmon & Charred Corn Salsa

Dear readers, I’m sorry I missed out a recipe two weeks ago, but worry not! This week is a seafood focused double feature! Plus, it was my birthday two weeks ago and we had a ton of things going on! My parents came to visit us for my birthday weekend, and then we had to…

On Creamy Spinach, Artichoke (& Crab) Dip [UPDATED]

2022 REMIX: I recently decided to make this for a birthday party app a couple of months ago, and went back to my recipe for the crab dip, but decided to spice things up a bit. Don’t get me wrong, the original dip was yummy, but this one takes the cake for sure! I’ve adjusted…

On Butter Cajun Shrimp & Veggies

Dear readers, What a couple of months readers…in case you’re not following me on Instagram, or just didn’t know in general, I changed jobs at the beginning of the month! My day job is in legal marketing, so I said goodbye to the firm I joined the month following my wedding in 2018, to join…

On Seared Scallops with Pea Puree and Bacon

Note: I thought the recipe I put in had saved…it had not…so THIS TIME with the correct recipe included… If there is anything you should know about me, it’s that I LOVE scallops. Can’t get enough of them, but unfortunately, Frankie isn’t the biggest fan, so I don’t make them at home very often. HOWEVER,…

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 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…
