Asian Salmon with Avocado, Orange and Cucumber Salsa

IMG_1873

This salsa good with any kind of fish.

Back in the summer (can you believe that is behind us now) we had friends over for dinner and we grilled salmon. I feel like “I” need to start cooking more because seems like my husband is always cooking the main course on one of the grills. My contributions recently have been the sides and desserts.

When it comes to “outdoor” cooking he’s been doing it for years, but three years ago when I had knees replaced, he started cooking inside and for a few weeks made me breakfast in bed, […]

Lemon Spaghetti with Shrimp

IMG_9199

I love the look of this pasta blend…..

Isn’t everyone looking for quick recipes now that summer is here (may not be summer where you live but to me May in Texas is summer). Who has time to cook anyway? (Honestly, I still enjoy it.) I’m probably the only person that looks for hard recipe with lots of ingredients. This isn’t one of those and you can do it with or without the carrots and zucchini. If you want all pasta go for it.

I love Giada De Liuentiis’ shows on Food Network and when I saw this recipe […]

Crispy Salt and Pepper Shrimp

And you can even eat the shells!

When I first saw this recipe I thought of my sister. She loves to eat the tails of fried shrimp and I thought she would love to try this recipe. We also love (maybe most people do) to eat the fried fins of fish when they are fried whole; that would be Crappie fish, of course, but I don’t get that anymore.

I have a closet full (not really) of Szechuan peppercorns that I ordered years ago and never really know what to use them in. Well this recipe calls for […]

Salmon with Mustard Sauce

And an extra mustard sauce recipe to boot!

If you are looking for something quick and delicious to make during this busy Christmas season, this should definitely be on your list of “must” try recipes.

There are still a few packages of Alaskan salmon in our freezer that my husband caught a year ago and I am getting a little reluctant to cook it because once I do it will be gone and I will be back to buying it from the grocery.

While in Austin after the birth of number 5 grandson last May, (wow that was […]

Shrimp, Mussels, Clams, and Linguini

A fond food memory of Italy.

What is it about remembering names and other things, like where did I put my phone, give me such a problem sometimes and then on the other hand I can think of a dish I had someplace and remember all the circumstances surrounding it.

For instance, it has been about eight years since we went to Italy but I will not forget one rainy night in Chinque la Terra going to dinner at Ristorante Miky (pronounced Mickey like my Michie). I started saving menus like my sister (she has some beautiful ones) […]
