Mediterranean Stuffed Mussels

July 26, 2012

With things beyond hectic in my work and personal life I took an unintended two-month break from the 5 Star Makeover. So when the invitation for this month’s challenge – Greek Meze – showed up in my inbox I was game to get started. Our fantastic hosts provided a pretty extensive list of classic dishes […]

Potato, Crab and Gorgonzola Soup

March 2, 2012

In the past couple of weeks I attended not one, but two soup exchange parties.  I went to my first one back in 2009, and then attended again last year, so it’s become my winter tradition.  The premise is you gather your friends together and everyone brings a favorite variety of soup.  The party is […]

Crab Salad BLT

January 18, 2012

Before Christmas I mentioned my love of holiday traditions, but I realized the other day that I forgot one – new year’s resolutions.  For a long time I never made any.  They seemed like a cliche and I assumed that even if I did make one, my follow through would be poor. Then in 2007 […]

Southwestern Clam Chowder

April 6, 2011

I don’t know what the weather is like where you live, but we got a delightful warm spell here in Chicago over the weekend.  My iPhone weather app confirmed it, the weather was in the high 70’s!  It was wonderfully unexpected and you better believe that Oliver and I relished it. We made our first […]

March 30, 2011

Last month I had a great time participating in the 5 Star Makeover hosted by Natasha of Five Star Foodie Culinary Adventures and Lazaro of Lazaro Cooks! This month’s challenge: to create a dish using sustainable seafood.  It was one I was particularly excited about because sustainability in food production and harvesting is something I’ve […]

Maryland Crab, Shrimp, and Bacon Chowder

Don’t forget to enter my Chavrie Giveaway here. The contest is open for entries through 12 am Friday, December 3. Recently I had the opportunity to attend the wedding of one of my sorority sisters in coastal Maryland. Though the wedding was clearly all about her and her husband, for me it also couldn’t have […]

Crab and Spinach Manicotti with a Sweet Corn Bechamel

July 16, 2010

I love when sweet corn starts appearing at the farmers’ market because to me it is the quintessential summer food.  I find myself including it in just about everything from my Low Fat Sweet Corn Ice Cream (which I am seriously considering making again with Cashew Caramel Corn as a garnish) to my Cocoa-Kissed Beef & Delicata […]

Buitoni Shrimp & Lobster Ravioli Product Review

June 17, 2010

Today was one of those weeks where you only make it to Thursday and already you are utterly, totally exhausted. I had so many projects piling up at work that all I could do was keep my head down and power through. Oddly enough, these tend to be the weeks where I like a long […]
