Summer is approaching, here in the Northeast, and I’m starting to feel the “no cooking summer blues“. Yes, when summer rolls around, I tend to get lazy and not want to cook… that’s why today’s theme is all about “Easy Gourmet Sandwiches“. And what better way to start off this theme with the amazing Shrimp and Chorizo Sandwich recipe from Food52. Right now, after viewing the photo of this sandwich, you probably don’t want me to talk anymore.. so I will be quiet for a moment (laughs). View the ingredient list below and click the link for the recipe. 1 more recipe coming up..
Two of my favorite things to eat are chicken and shrimp. Don’t ask me why, but I absolutely love recipes including them. And since today’s theme is all about ‘Take Out at Home‘, what better time to feature this amazing Shrimp Pad Thai recipe from Food52. I’ve definitely become a fan of Thai food, and this dish is easy and looks amazing. Plus it gives me another excuse to enjoy shrimp on a Friday night (smiles). Some of my other food loves include Polynesian and Soul-food of course. View the ingredient list below and click the link for the recipe. Happy Friday!
I was born and raised on the east coast, my mother was born and raised in the country part of Florida.. so many people tell me that makes me southern (*laughs* I do have a slight southern drawl). So today I decided to post more of my ‘favorite foods‘.. and I’m starting off with this beautiful Grilled Blackened Catfish recipe from Chow. I grew up eating fresh, gulf caught catfish with grits and let me just tell you.. those memories are making me hungry right now (laughs). This dish is a great way to enjoy fish with a kick of creole seasoning. View the ingredient list below and click above for the recipe. Another recipe.. is on its way..
….. Well, you won’t be going inside my kitchen per say (I wanted to take photos, but my kitchen is not camera ready yet *laughs*), but you will see photos of my favorite dishes to make and eat .. any day of the week (twice if there are leftovers). As you all know, I decided to have a pre-birthday celebration with you and share my favorite things (each Saturday before my birthday). There are so many dishes I love to make/eat.. but these dishes, as simple as some of them are, make me happy the most. So… here are my favorite go-to’s.
* 1st photo: I LOVE Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad.. it just makes me happy.
* 2nd photo: Yes, that’s a photo of my cast iron pan (passed down from 5 generations), with chicken quarters, seasoned with a no salt blend of spices, along with garlic and pepper. I love baked chicken.
* 3rd photo: My bowl of Shrimp Fettuccine, makes my day (smiles). I have made a healthier rendition of this dish, but I go back to the original recipe sometimes (smiles).
* 4th photo: Here’s a story.. my first birthday cake, my mother bought for me, was made by a sweet, older southern woman.. from scratch. She knew I LOVED chocolate, so she decided to add a hard frosting on top. And ever since that day.. I only crave THAT CAKE. Sure I’ll eat other cakes, but they never measure up to her cake. And I’m still trying to replicate her genius.
I’m guessing you already know this Food Friday is ‘All About Salmon‘. And in true form, I went on a search to find unique salmon recipes to showcase.While searching, I found this intriguing Salmon in Sorrel Sauce recipe from the website Food52. When I first viewed this recipe, I wasn’t sure I would like it. But the more I see it, the more this unique recipe is growing on me. If you want to make this but can’t find chervil or sorrel, try substituting them with spinach and chives. View the ingredient list below and click on the link for the recipe. Happy Friday!
