Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I cooked dinner for Hubby and I. Many go out to eat on Valentine’s Day but I prefer to stay at home. I can cook, even a bit fancier meal, for less than it costs to go out and we don’t have all the crowds and waiting in line as if we go out. Hubby … Continue Reading →

Recipe: Smoked Crab Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers Wrapped in Bacon

  Okay, so some chefs will say the jalapeno popper movement is past its prime, but honestly people still love them. If you are one of the lovers of poppers go ahead and make them anytime you want and rejoice! Today I dressed this up by adding crab meat to the mix!  You can use canned crab meat or fresh, whichever … Continue Reading →

Last week I went to southern California for a blogger event (more to come on the trip). On our first night we were treated to dinner at Las Brisas in Laguna Beach. I thought I would share a few pictures. I was so excited to see the ocean and the beach. This is in front of Las Brisas at Laguna … Continue Reading →
Balsamic White Swai Recipe

Balsamic White Swai Recipe

This is one of the easiest ways to quickly cook fish! I have mentioned before that I love the Target brand of Market Pantry frozen white swai fish fillets, we keep these in the freezer always. Since my surgery I have had some limits on my diet in stages, but fish is one of the first regular foods I could have. … Continue Reading →
4 Delicious Salads with Tuna for Summer

4 Delicious Salads with Tuna for Summer

In the summer when it is very hot we do not necessarily like to cook all that much inside. We are actually overdue for a new air conditioner for the house and so even turning on the stovetop can add unwanted extra heat to the house this time of year.

The only thing my family wishes is that they came with the tail off – … Continue Reading →
Holland House Basil Shrimp Pasta and Broccoli

Holland House Basil Shrimp Pasta and Broccoli

Tonight I tried a new recipe and a new product. The product was Holland House White Cooking Wine with Lemon. Now I cook with wine fairly often and so I wasn’t really sure about using “cooking wine” as many chefs honestly turn their nose up at it. However, I am not a big wine connoisseur truthfully. I do drink wine, … Continue Reading →
Shrimp Sunday – Lemony Shrimp with Asparagus and Pasta

Shrimp Sunday – Lemony Shrimp with Asparagus and Pasta

Even though I do not consider myself religious, I was raised as a Catholic and so fish on Friday was a common occurrence, especially during lent. Even in our public school we seemed to have fish sticks each Friday (one of the few school foods I liked). I still love fish, but everyone at our house really loves shrimp too … Continue Reading →
