120: Pan-Seared Shrimp and Spinach Risotto

120: Pan-Seared Shrimp and Spinach Risotto

One day for dinner, I decided to make Pan-Seared Shrimp and Arugula Risotto. I couldn’t find arugula at the store, so I decided to thaw some frozen spinach instead.

Fried Catfish with Hush Puppies (112 and 113)

Fried Catfish with Hush Puppies (112 and 113)

I wanted to try deep-frying again after giving it a shot last month, so I decided to make the recipes for Fried Catfish and Hush Puppies from Cooking Light magazine. I don’t fry things very often, but I’ve seen recipes similar to the catfish recipe […]

94: Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

94: Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

On Tuesday I decided to make Shrimp and Okra Gumbo. I had some okra left in my freezer, and this sounded like it would have lots of vegetables. This also gave me a chance to use up a little more of the ham I had […]

67: Chimichurri Sauce and 68: Salmon with Alton Brown’s Spice Pomade

67: Chimichurri Sauce and 68: Salmon with Alton Brown’s Spice Pomade

I talked Alex into grilling this week because I bought some beef I wanted grilled [top sirloin cap steak, to be precise – you grill it, slice the done ends off to eat, keep grilling, slice ends off, repeat]. But, I’m not going to talk […]

61: Tuna with Caper Verde Sauce

61: Tuna with Caper Verde Sauce

My wedding anniversary was this weekend, so I took a little break from both recipe-posting and intensive cooking. On Thursday night (it seems like so long ago), I made Tuna with Caper Verde Sauce. The recipe actually called for halibut, but the sidebar (I got […]

57: Spinach and Endive Salad with Tangerines and Coriander-Crusted Scallops

57: Spinach and Endive Salad with Tangerines and Coriander-Crusted Scallops

On Tuesday night, I made the Spinach and Frisee Salad with Tangerines & Coriander-Crusted Scallops from Eating Well magazine. It’s an incredibly long name, but a pretty tasty salad. This was my first time cooking scallops. They seem incredibly expensive, so I never buy them. […]

52: Mahimahi BLT Tacos

52: Mahimahi BLT Tacos

When I made jerk chicken, I couldn’t just buy a single habanero pepper – I had to buy a small carton with 8 or 9 peppers in it. I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I seeded, minced, and froze them. I was […]

43: Poached Salmon with Creamy Piccata Sauce

43: Poached Salmon with Creamy Piccata Sauce

I froze some salmon when I made Salmon with Lemon, Capers, and Rosemary last week. I decided that I wanted to try out the other recipe I had printed out, (#43) Poached Salmon with Creamy Piccata Sauce, while the first recipe was still fresh in […]

39: Salmon with Lemon, Capers, and Rosemary

39: Salmon with Lemon, Capers, and Rosemary

I bought some fresh salmon when we went shopping last. It was a big salmon fillet, so on Thursday I cut it into 5 pieces – I cooked three (one for me, Alex, and Friday’s lunch) and froze the other two. I wanted a recipe […]

25: Tilapia with Cream Sauce

25: Tilapia with Cream Sauce

Last night I made Tilapia with Tomato Cream Sauce (since I don’t like cod). This is another of those recipes from Eating Well, but I thought that it might be tasty enough that it wouldn’t seem too fishy. I like tomato-based sauces, I generally like […]
