Spicy Jalapeno Meatballs and Waffles

Are you still looking for things to serve on Game Day? Look no further.  You’ve found what you are looking for. Waffles are so IN right now.  Not just for breakfast, you know – but for dinners and lunches and snacks as well. From the classic diner to the top gastropub to the finest restaurant, […]

Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Dip

I don’t think there is a single holiday season that there hasn’t been shrimp served at our gatherings. True story, and maybe this won’t be funny to you, but I’m telling it anyway. Every year for as long as I can remember, we all go to my Aunt Sylvia’s house for Christmas Eve.  Aunts and […]

Honey Walnut and Shrimp Salad Bites

I travel a lot, as you may already know, and when I do?  I find inspirations for recipes in so many places.  Bakeries, food trucks, Mom & Pops, and of course, fine restaurants.  So, when SeaPak asked me to develop a new recipe for their Shrimptacular celebration of all things shrimp this month, I already […]

Canadian Lentils…at Blogger Bash

Last week I attended the Blogger Bash in New York City. As an AMBASSADOR. My first foray into the mom/lifestyle blogging event, and I was lucky enough to be chosen not only as a VIP, but as an AMBASSADOR.  This roll came with lots of wonderful opportunities, some behind-the-scenes adventures, some great meals, some NEW […]

Bacon Cheeseburger Deviled Eggs

I have been on a deviled egg tare as of late…I seriously can’t get enough of them. For one thing, they are very carb friendly, and considering my new, weirdo diet, no carbs is a great thing for me.  Deviled Eggs have made my life tasty enough to manage through the weeks with no sugar, […]

Cinco de Mayo…Tart Apple Pico de Gallo

So yesterday we jumped into the Cinco de Mayo festivities by offering up a sassy cocktail.  Today?  Let’s do a twist on a Mexican cuisine staple…Pico de Gallo. Fresh and punchy, loaded up with cilantro.  I love a great pico. Sticking with the same southern theme as yesterday, I decided to switch things up and […]

Sriracha Shrimp and Candied Bacon Crostini…and a Giveaway

Good news, you guys…I’m back. Have you missed me?  Oh come on now…certainly ONE of you has.  Mom? Yeah, okay. Anyway, life has been a bit nuts lately, and travel and television spots have kept me beyond busy, but I’m still here and I’m still cooking.  This time…for National Shrimp Day. Yes, it exists. National […]

Game Day Goodies!

We are known for being huge tailgaters. I am female.  Jon is…not. What this means is – he thinks a meal of meat and meat alone is a meal.  I think we need to have cookies or brownies or, heck, even a SALAD to go with all of the carnivore action. Right?  Just meat?  No.  […]
