Honey Glazed Shrimp

I love shrimp,  it is delicious and one of my favorite types of seafood to eat.  I am always looking for a new recipe for how to prepare shrimp and was delighted with this honey glazed shrimp.  The recipe was originally for salmon and I know it would be wonderful with salmon too, but I loved it […]

Creamy Italian Chicken and Vegetables over Pasta

This an amazing combination of chicken and vegetables over pasta. The other day at work, Shelby and I were discussing what we were going to make for dinner. Sometimes you just have moments like that, food is what is on your mind and you really can use some new dinner ideas.  Shelby (one of my […]

Chocolate Crepes with Orange-Lemon Curd

Crepes are so easy to make, I forget how easy they are to make.  This orange-lemon curd is quite easy also because you use the microwave.  So with all that ease don’t hesitate to whip together these chocolate crepes with orange-lemon curd tonight for dinner. Tuesday night, I came home uninspired and with no desire […]

Tomato Squash Bisque

Does reading Tomato Squash Bisque peak your interest in this soup?  First off, did you know bisque means a creamy soup that is usually shellfish or vegetables.  This soup is a delicious combination of vegetables with fresh tomatoes, delicata squash (you can use butternut squash instead), basil, and heavy cream (thus the creaminess). I started […]

Chili Verde Pork Tacos

Do you think it is a dangerous thing to experiment with new foods when you are feeding your mother-in-law?  Apparently I don’t.  Probably because I have the most easy going, positive, and uplifting mother-in-law around.  So I didn’t think I would fail by cooking up chili verde pork tacos.  It helped that the chili verde […]

Seafood and Fruit Salad

Oh, my goodness – I wasn’t very creative when it came to naming this salad; basically it just describes the healthy and delicious ingredients that you build the salad with.  I could call it a dump salad because almost everything was leftovers from a previous meal and all added together for a yummy, healthy salad. […]

Schiaffoni Pasta with Vegetables

Way back in 1999 (a whole century ago), a beautiful, sweet young lady came to live with our family.  Heather was befriended by Craig’s parents while they served an LDS mission in the Washington D.C. mission.  Heather was from West Virginia and Norine and Gene (Craig’s mom and dad) thought it would benefit her to […]
