I'm geeking out over this crispy pan seared salmon because it's legit too good not to share with the...
Grilled lobster tails and clams are the fastest, easiest way to serve simple, straightforward seafood all summer long. Guys, I am here to share with you that the best way to cook lobster tails and clams is on a grill. Whether you're cooking on gas, charcoal, or (my favorite!) a smoker, such as Traeger, the only thing you need other than the seafood is olive oil, salt, and pepper. Melted butter is optional, but so so...
Easy breakfast tacos with smoked salmon, cream cheese, red onion, and chives are a brunch game changer. Why Easy Breakfast Tacos Are Your New Secret Weapon Hi, hello, welcome! It's me again, just wanting to give a shout out to brunch. I've always considered myself more of a dinner party kinda host than someone who invites people over for breakfast, but I find myself time and again developing recipes for brunch. Every time people come...
Spicy crab pasta with lemon and capers. It's a love letter to seafood and carbs, and also to anyone you deem worthy enough to serve it to. This is the perfect example that simple and unfussy can be both elegant and refined. When I tell you how long it took to make this you won't believe me. Literally comes together in minutes -- don't even try to make the sauce while the pasta is cooking,...
I have been known to scoff at the idea of date night in. I think it's likely because I spend so much of my time cooking, that even when my husband takes the reins, I sometimes just prefer to leave the house entirely. Also, when my husband cooks for me -- it's glorious, he's a wonderful cook! -- there somehow always ends up being a mountain of dishes that need tending to. I'm of the opinion that...
This grilled blackened salmon comes together in under 30 minutes and is topped with a flavorful pineapple avocado salsa. Perfect for grilling season! I've been meaning to get this up for weeks. Weeks! Which, clearly, is unacceptable, because this recipe needs to be shared, and by now summer is almost over (literally our patio is hidden beneath a layer of freshly fallen leaves) and those sweet, glorious pineapples we've been buying nonstop are going to slowly...
Before you go running for the hills, let me assure you that this is actually a very simple Thai curry. I'm not just saying that. As long as you have curry paste, you can achieve serious depth of flavor in a short amount of time, even if you're out of garlic, have never heard of ginger paste, and only have 1 fresh herb on deck. Because coconut milk (a must!) plus curry paste equals the best...
In my never ending search to find recipes that truly 'wow,' layered smoked salmon dip currently rests pretty damn high on the list. Food Advertising by To the point where I'm annoyed I didn't come across it sooner. It's comfort food, but for grown ups. I'm in this unique place professionally where I'm both trying to find my style as a recipe developer, while constantly building upon my skills as a photographer. There...
It's been over a week since Thanksgiving. We survived Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Some of us controlled ourselves, and others were caught red-handed, accused of spending too much money. But it was a gift! And it's for you! Well, for us. Okay, it's for me... You might think that now is the time to sit back, relax, and enjoy holiday music, but beware, the holiday season waits for no one and...
These miso-marinated salmon bowls are made with flaky salmon fillets, chewy udon noodles, fresh veggies, and chiles to add just a hint of spice. This weekend was restorative. Instead of back-to-back birthday parties (a normal occurrence with three children in school), we left the house only to buy groceries and wine. It was lazy in the sense of not checking much off our to-do lists, but comforting to stay home, invite friends over, and talk...
