Pasta with Shrimp and Tomato-Caper Sauce

Pasta with Shrimp and Tomato-Caper Sauce

Yesterday, Iowa Girl Eats proposed that fresh basil has the smell most reminiscent of of summer, and I have to agree it’s right up there! I would also nominate the smell of barbecue chicken on the grill, fresh-cut grass, and sunscreen. Basil also happens to be the only fresh herb I’ve successful grown at home … Continue reading

Sweet & Spicy Shrimp with Rice Noodles

Sweet & Spicy Shrimp with Rice Noodles

Ever since I realized that I do, actually, love shrimp a couple years ago, I’ve really taken to cooking with it! (Evidence: Seafood posts). But for the last several months, shrimp was been pretty nonexistent in my kitchen. Anyone else notice the skyrocketing shrimp prices!? Huge bummer. Apparently there is a shortage. But, the other … Continue reading

Sometimes the best meals really are the simplest! Take this recipe from Cooking Light, for instance. Nine ingredients. And four of those are butter, olive oil, salt, and pepper, which most people already have on hand. Pasta. Butter. Olive Oil. Garlic. Shrimp. Salt. Spinach. Parmesan Cheese. So simple. So delicious. So satisfying. A meal in … Continue reading

Everyone loves coconut shrimp. Right!? I have yet to meet one person who doesn’t gush at the mention of coconut shrimp. (Excluding vegetarians?)

Kara-Áge Shrimp

Kara-Áge Shrimp

Kara-Áge Soy-Ginger Seasoned Coating Mix. Have you heard of this product, made by Kikkoman? I had not, until I recently received it as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program. The packaging claims that, “Kara-age is one of the most popular cooking techniques in Japan,” and that “Kara-Áge makes the perfect fried chicken every time.” It … Continue reading

5-Ingredient Creamy Light Shrimp Alfredo

Greetings! I have been inundated with Mexican food the last two days! Last evening my BFF and I met for dinner at a random place to which neither of us had ever been, located halfway between our houses, called La Herradura, in Hartland. I’m always a tad skeptical of plaza restaurants, for some reason… …but … Continue reading

Shrimp Lo Mein

Shrimp Lo Mein

Shrimp. Something I despised until only recently. The texture. The whole deveining procedure. The funky tails. Just the whole thing weirded me out. When I would tell people that I didn’t like shrimp, shock and awe was the common reaction elicited. Yet, somehow, in only the last year or so, I’ve become a huge fan … Continue reading
