We have friends visiting from Atlanta and one of them prefers to avoid gluten, so I have been making some gluten-free dishes. As I mentioned in another post, I have found that Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour is a very good substitute for regular flour. In lieu of flour in some of […]
Shrimp cocktail is a favorite hors d’oeuvre of mine. I serve it every Christmas Eve and sometimes at dinner parties. I used to boil the shrimp until I read about an easier way to prepare it. I now roast my shrimp, and I’m never going back to boiling. Roasting the shrimp with a little olive […]
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I usually have a 2-lb bag of frozen shrimp in my freezer. I get a bag every time I go to Costco. The shrimp come frozen, peeled and deveined. They still have the tail on them, and you can choose to cook with the tails on or without […]
The flavor in this dish was unexpected and wonderful. The lemon zest and juice brought this dish to life. I loved it so much I had two big servings. I also had it the next day for lunch. I love a meal that makes for good leftovers.
I love this dish for a number of reasons: […]
I’m a little late posting these. I made them in September, at the tail end of the corn season here in the Northeast. If you’re inspired to make them when fresh corn isn’t in season, you can certainly use frozen corn in its place.
I tried this recipe because on the Food and Wine website, it […]
This is a really quick and easy weeknight meal, and if you’re a fan of both shrimp and cheesy grits, this is the recipe for you! I bought a big bag of grits from Trader Joe’s a while ago and wasn’t sure what to do with them until I found this recipe.
According to the Houston […]

A couple of tips: Don’t overcook the shrimp. It’s easy to do, but if you overcook them they’ll be […]
For me, there is nothing better than a summer meal that is loaded with fresh herbs. I wish I could convince the boys to agree with me, but they still don’t like the look of anything green in their food. Please do tell me that one day they’ll outgrow this.
This is a great dish to […]
I made this dinner the other night in 30 minutes. No kidding. It was really quick. That said, I started with shrimp that had been deveined and shelled, so that was already taken care of. These days, I only buy shrimp that have already been cleaned and shelled. Costco sells them frozen in 2 pound […]
This is a perfect Thai-inspired weeknight meal. The preparation is quick and the result is delicious. I love almost anything with coconut milk and cilantro, such a great combination. I served this over brown rice which sopped up the sauce nicely. My husband loved this. Boys wouldn’t go near it.
