Once a week, my husband and I cook salmon with veggies. We know how important it is to get in your Omega-3s and while it’s not always the most exciting meal it’s healthy and clean. We’ve admittedly been getting a little sick of it though, so I recently went on Pinterest to find a twist on … Continue reading Fajita Salmon, Need I Say More?
March 19 is a special day. On March 19, 2007, my husband and I decided to give our relationship a “go” and become an official couple. We were friends for years before we took this life altering leap, and it was simply the best decision I’ve ever made. Falling in love with your favorite person … Continue reading 11 Years, a Two-Year Old, and a Couple of Lobsters
Not sure about you, but I feel like this fall has been absolutely insane. How is it already mid October? Between work and my personal life, I’ve barely had time to catch my breath. Amidst the madness, it’s good to hit the pause button and recharge your batteries (if you can). This past weekend I … Continue reading Taking a Pause with a Shrimp Alfredo Pasta Bake
I’m an avid sushi eater, and every time I order a roll that involves a spicy mayo sauce I yearn to lick my entire plate or use my chop sticks like a spoon to get any extra into my mouth. I love that sauce, yet have never thought about making it on my own. Until … Continue reading DIY Sriracha Cream Sauce (with Salmon)
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are well aware that Boston is experiencing a pretty hellish ordeal right now. The weather has really taken its toll on the hearts and minds of Bostonians, turning us against each other and causing us to ask ourselves, “Why do we live here?!?!” After an eventful week … Continue reading Give Yourself a Reason to Smile with Salmon
You know those nights when you get home exhausted from a grueling day at the office, and cooking dinner is the absolute last thing you want to do? But then you don’t want to order out because you’re trying to save money and be healthy so inevitably an internal struggle ensues? That happened to us … Continue reading You Can’t Argue with Easy: Seviche-Style Shrimp and Avocado Tacos
One of my favorite things about spring and summer is the delectable and sweet fruit in season. I’m a huge fruit eater, you certainly don’t have to twist my arm to get my daily servings in, and I appreciate any and all recipes that call for them. I came across this recipe in an attempt … Continue reading Fruit, Glorious Fruit: Grilled Salmon and Pineapple with Avocado Dressing
Everyone seems to be in the same boat this time of year coming off a holiday eating binge that leaves us feeling weighed down and a bit…blah. What I find to be hard is that the only types of dishes I crave are hearty and heartier. Of course you can always find those comforting and … Continue reading Lighten Things Up with Shrimp & Avocado Salad
Sometimes it’s nice to make dinner a special occasion for no reason whatsoever. After a particularly long day of running errands and doing all things domestic, my fiancé and I decided to treat ourselves and cook up some lobsters. Sorry, I mean…lobstahs. We prefer to eat our crustaceans in totally different ways: I like to … Continue reading Lobstahs. Just Because.
I love Sunday dinners. It’s a great time to gather yourself before the week ahead and end the weekend on a high note. This weekend was particularly fabulous, for multiple reasons, so I wanted to prepare a dinner that reflected that. Additionally, after a big meal out last night I wanted to lighten things up … Continue reading Scallops and Sunday Dinner
I guess you could say my fiancé has southern roots. His grandmother, Gibby aka “Notorious G.I.B.”, is from South Carolina and his family vacations there every summer. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting South Carolina several times, most recently for my best friend’s gorgeous wedding on Kiawah Island. The week before the wedding, we traveled … Continue reading A Very Southern Valentine’s Day
When my fiancé and I first got engaged, we were given the greatest gift of all time and no, it did not come in a Cuisinart box. It came in the form of a piece of advice. My friend advised us to designate just one day a week to plan our wedding in order to prevent us … Continue reading Shrimp Stir Fry + Wedding Wednesday
As we all know, food can conjure up great memories and the dish that I cooked Sunday night does just that for me. I moved to Boston in March of 2011 and although I was excited to move to the city that I was born in and always loved, being so far away from my parents was a huge adjustment. Yes, I … Continue reading Here’s to my Sister
About five years ago, I saw the Pixar animated film “Ratatouille” about a rat that loves food, winds up in Paris, and cooks for a five star restaurant by befriending the garbage boy. A rat cooking for a Parisian restaurant is about as far-fetched as you can get. However, as the restaurant’s deceased head chef … Continue reading Anyone Can Cook Shrimp Ratatouille
