Coconut Shrimp

Here’s another summer seafood recipe as promised. I pulled out the air fryer for this recipe. I have no desire to overheat my kitchen with the stove on an 80 degree day. This air fryer of mine is a genie in a box. I may be a little jealous of it. I should probably use…

Creamy Shrimp Orecchiette

This recipe is the chorus to my summer seafood song. As mentioned in my previous post I am dedicating this week to light seafood recipes that are match worthy for this season. It wouldn’t be right if shrimp didn’t make the cut. It probably will make it in several posts this week because of its…

Lemon Herb Crab Cakes

On rainy summer days like this I open the window and sit in a nook with my laptop. That’s what Im currently doing right now. The rain is soothing. On this particular evening its also inspiring. Im dedicating the rest of this week’s posts to Summer Seafood Recipes. A summer seafood recipe is something that…

Champagne Chimichurri

The weather is beautiful . This past Memorial Day weekend was full of sunshine and grill born recipes. In the mood for plating and food that reflected the vibrancy of the impending summer I made a zesty Chimichurri to pair with flank steak. Chimichurri is an uncooked sauce used both for marinades and as a…

Lemon Yogurt Bundt

I’m not a baker. Consider this a disclaimer. I have stirred my batter with chop sticks because I forgot to start the dishwasher the night before and all my whisks were dirty. EEEK! Baking is legit a science. Baker’s kitchens are sweet magical laboratories with flour made of fairy dust. I do however have a…

Stovetop Frittata

With my work schedule breakfast was never a thing. Aside from Monday through Friday’s morning cups of dark roast that was it. With recent shifts to our schedules, in full work from home mode, I have discovered an additional hour (more if I skip my virtual meeting makeup routine). I wake up and bake bread,…

Spicy Fig Jam on Lamb Burgers

Newton move over! There’s a new fig in town. Since the grocery store is the most exciting and safest of trips we can take during these times I highly suggest taking the time to explore the aisles. Slow your pace and observe. I challenge myself to find at least one item that is outside of…

Easy Cheesy Mozzarella Sticks

A girl walks into a bar… Too soon? As of lately this girl is going for long walks to the kitchen. Bar food is a thing of the recent past considering this quarantine. I miss the late night simple things; a juicy burger with fries, buffalo wings, jalapeno poppers, pizza that looks like slices from…

Pineapple Pecan Bread

Mom and I have started to try and schedule morning coffee sessions; social distance style. I called her Sunday morning and exclaimed, “Wake up! Its coffee time”. She replied, “I can’t have my coffee without a pastry or slice of something”. Shortly there after she sent me a picture of a slice of lemon loaf…

Balsamic Shrimp

Balsamic Vinegar was used as a disinfectant in the middle ages. Considering our worldly circumstances, it seemed like a timely and shareable fact. I’ve always been fascinated with the multi-uses of vinegar in general; its preservative and healing properties mostly. Growing up as a child, vinegar was the go-to for tummy aches and colds. As…
