Lemon Shrimp Pesto Pasta

Shrimp pasta dishes can be impressive & decadent, but also easy to throw together… especially if you use pre-cooked frozen shrimp and pre-made pesto. The lemon adds a special zing to the earthy pesto flavor, and the goat cheese adds another layer of creamy goodness. As for the lemon, yes, it’s safe to eat lemon…

Spinach Pastry Cups

I had originally prepped this post long before the Covid-19 Pandemic and Stay-At-Home orders were in place. The way we live has changed drastically in the last two months plus.

Messy Josephs

Everyone knows Sloppy Joe. This is the cousin. Just as messy, but with a new twist. Savory and sweet, this is a dish that you’re grateful you can “overflow” over the edges of the “bun”.   The balsamic acts like the brown sugar in the sloppy joe, adding the depth of sweetness. The traditional bun…

Red Snapper Provencal

Having grown up in the Great Lake State and now living on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, I have a love for fresh fish. As in, the fish had been swimming earlier that day. Since the fish is so fresh, our family usually keeps our recipes very simple – often just salt, pepper and…
