With a bit of crab and shrimp in each bite, this Mid-Atlantic seafood stuffing (dressing) is a delicious way to bring coastal flavors to the holiday table, or just a great dish to enjoy anytime!
I joke that food bloggers think three months in advance for holidays, and normally I wouldn’t be posting the Thanksgiving stuffing recipes in the middle of the summer, but I couldn’t resist. Also, I’m squarely blaming Paige from Where Latin Meets Lagniappe for these shenanigans. Feel free to go thank her after you try this dressing recipe, because I know you probably won’t be able to wait until Thanksgiving either. (more…)
Turn up the heat on summer puddings by adding tropical flavors and a blowtorch when you make this papaya creme brulee!
Growing up, my mother would buy papaya periodically at the grocery store and encourage us to eat it because it’s loaded with vitamins. It was good, but being spoiled Floridian children with easy access to all sorts of fruit, I think my mother ended up eating most of it. Fast forward a few decades, and I’m turning into my mother, buying papaya, encouraging everyone in the house to eat it, but actually enjoying most of it myself. That last bit is totally my choice. 😉 (more…)
Grilled fish is a light and quick dinner, even on busy weeknights! You can make it on a gas or charcoal grill, or just keep things simple and fire up the grill pan. Shisito peppers add a unique twist to homemade tartar sauce.
This is another recipe inspired by my baby sister’s birthday dinner at Hula Girl in Arlington; the root beer sticky ribs are the other. I’d actually been talking to the Godfather about grilling fish since, oh, February, but it takes him a surprisingly long time to grill compared to his turnaround time for testing barbecue recipes. So, I made this one by myself! On the grill pan (ha!), and then whipped up the sauce using shisito peppers from my garden. Would you like to hear about my gardening (mis)adventures? (more…)
Raid the garden, farm stand, or the grocery store so you can make this delicious strawberry basil lemonade from scratch! It’s the perfect summer drink to take you from porch to park to beach.
I am a devout water drinker about 10 months out of the year. You will usually catch me walking around with a water bottle in my purse, refilling it multiple times a day. That is, until the dog days of summer roll around and the temperature hits 100 or something equally ridiculous. Then I want something a little more exciting than a twist of lemon to make drinking water more interesting, so I indulge in some homemade lemonade! (more…)

I make it no secret that I really really really love avocados, and I’ve even referred to avocados as a “lifestyle”. So naturally, when I came across the Vida Aguacate website, I was super excited. So excited that I grabbed my Avocados From Mexico and whipped up this Mexican Cobb Salad. Who doesn’t love a good salad? (more…)
