Fried Coconut Almond Shrimp with Apricot Dipping Sauce

  When I edit photos, I just pick the ones that I think are the stand outs (often only one or two) edit those, export and review what I’ve done. It wasn’t until I pulled this set up in review that I saw that it seemed to tell the story of shrimp desperation. Maybe it’s […]

Pistachio Crusted Salmon with Strawberry Balsamic Glaze over Orzo Summer Salad

This is that savory strawberry recipe that I was telling you about. I made this three times, and loved it more and more each time. This is how I love to eat on a regular basis: fresh produce, healthy fats, ┬áno dairy (I love dairy and I eat it, but I try to eat as […]

Paprika Shrimp and Sausage Quinoa Paella

Life’s funny, isn’t it? One minute you’re sitting there enjoying a nice Mother’s Day breakfast that your husband made you, and the next minute you’re talking to The Today Show and agreeing to take a last minute flight to JFK so that you can stand behind a podium for 3 minutes and pretty much say […]

Salt Roasted Whole Fish with Grilled Artichokes

It’s been a strange few weeks for me, cooking wise. I’ve been getting back to the food I love, remembering why I ever picked up a whisk in the first place, challenging myself as a cook and remembering the food I fell in love with. If you follow my other blog, you are aware of […]

Quinoa Crab Salad with Jalapeno Vinaigrette

I could eat this salad every day. I realize that quinoa has become a food trend that will inevitably run it’s course, I don’t care. I’ll love it and I’ll eat it long after it’s no longer cool. The first time I made it, I cooked it the same way I cook rice and the […]

Avocado Alfredo Pasta with Spicy Shrimp

Apparently, I like to torture myself. Sometimes it’s in small ways, like keeping my size zero jeans from my modeling days that I will never fit into again. Ever. Ever.

Chilean Salmon with Avocado Cream Sauce

I’ve always wanted to go to Chile. Since I started traveling, I’ve had a deep love for Spanish speaking countries, I want to visit them all. Although, other than language, they seem to have little in common. Other than maybe a shared love of food and family. I spent some time in Spain, missing my […]

Oven Steamed Salmon with Blueberry Balsamic Reduction

Every once in a while this happens. I made a recipe I love, and then it sort of slips away and never gets posted. This is one of those recipes. I can’t even remember why it didn’t get posted, maybe because I don’t really like the photos (sorry my ego got in the way of […]

Crab Cake Eggs Benedict with Bacon Hollandaise

I think we know each other well enough by now that I don’t have to try and pretend. If a dish is easy, I’ll tell you. If it’s quick, I’ll tell you. If it’s healthy, I’ll tell you. This is none of those things. It is, however, worth the effort. It’s a special occasion breakfast […]
