Bang Bang Shrimp with Spicy Sriracha Aioli

Last May, we planned a bachelorette party for my sister-in-law Lauren that involved an awesome cooking class. We learned how to make some great Thai and Asian recipes, one of which was this recipe for Bang Bang Shrimp. It was my favorite recipe of the night and I have made it many times since. This has […]

New England Clam Chowder

It’s cold. Snow and ice are everywhere. We’ve had the fire blazing constantly and are always snuggled under blankets. It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to eat big bowls of soup. All. the. time. This chowder is hearty and delicious and surprisingly easy to throw together.  Serve it with lots of warm, crusty bread.  Or […]

Sesame Ginger Salmon

I’ve been on an Asian flavor kick lately.  I found myself craving those flavors with salmon and ran by Whole Foods to pick up a nice piece of fish for dinner.  I had pinned this recipe from Jessica ages ago and thought it was time to try it.  I was not disappointed at all.  It […]

Shrimp Cobb Salad

Once the weather starts to warm up and I start seeing signs of spring, I tend to have a desire to eat healthier and lighter.  I start pinning a large amount of salad recipes and finding ways to pack enough flavor and protein in them so that my husband won’t be hungry an hour after […]

The Best Crab Cakes You’ll Ever Eat

Matt’s mom makes bangin’ crab cakes.  I mean, for real.  We eat them every year on Christmas Eve…with some sort of steak, delicious sides and lots of champagne.  It’s become our holiday tradition and it’s awesome.  We all look forward to this meal so much that we stuff ourselves beyond reason.  I find myself craving […]

Shrimp Risotto with Chive Gremolata

Growing up, risotto was a comfort food that my mom made often.  Nowadays, I often associate comfort food with being really easy to whip up.  While risotto can be a bit more time consuming than my stand by comfort food choices, it is still a winner nonetheless, especially this variety.  This is one of my […]

Grilled Salmon with Oregano Oil & Avocado Tzatziki Sauce

I love a good sauce. Especially when it has ingredients like avocados and greek yogurt in it.  Yum-o.  I would like this sauce as a dip, it definitely has a hefty consistency perfect for dipping big crunchy pita chips. This is a great dinner that is easy to execute and has a fresh and tasty […]

Talapia with Blood Orange Salsa

Thanks to Jessica over at How Sweet It Is, I have had a week filled with blood oranges.  I have bought them on two separate occasions over the past 7 days and have yet to have a day go by without eating one!  They are so delicious, and the fact that they are only around […]

Grilled Salmon with Corn, Shiitakes & Balsamic Sauce

This delicious and hearty salmon dish really satisfies.  We massively reduced the amount of butter called for in the original recipe because it really doesn’t need that much.  This dish is perfect in the summer when fresh corn is abundant, but is still delicious when made with frozen corn.  You get a little taste of […]

Snazzy Birthday Dinner!

Now as anyone who reads this blog knows by now, food is pretty important around here.  So, naturally, we pull out all of the stops around birthdays, holidays and other special occasions.  I had been muttering about fall themed risotto dishes – sweet potato and pumpkin, of course – so Mama Cheater Bite pulled out […]
