Mediterrean Chicken with Mushrooms and Zuchhinni

I found another fantastic recipe.  I think my food blog is just a reference for me to find recipes I haven’t made in a long time and remake them again.  I used Boogle Merlot wine for this one and it had wonderful flavors.  The combination of a full Bodied wine, the pearl onions and pancetta…

Grilled Cod With Three-Pepper Relish

I found a really good recipe the other day while sifting through a pile of old Magazines.  I am easily distracted, I start a cleaning project stumble on a pile of old cooking magazines that I can’t part with and the next thing I know 2 hours later I have bookmarked 3 or 4 to…

New England Seafood Chowder

After our Labor Day weekend in Mammoth and two very cold nights in the canyon we came back to really hot weather and sneezing, itchy throats and I”m like no. I decided  I wanted something warm and creamy with seafood in it.  So after some research I came across the top seafood chowder recipe on…

BBQ Salmon Burger

I wanted Salmon burger and after looking at the ingredients to a couple of recipes I found online I wanted something more than what those recipes called for.  So I made my own.  I loved the way these burgers came out and I think a lot of it has to do with the ingredients I used,…

Beer Battered Crispy Salmon Fish Tacos

I’ve never cooked Salmon in batter before,  it is so delicious in my beer (Lager) batter.  I found this awesome recipe from food blogger Foodness Gracious.  The avocado Cream Sauce is very tasty too.  The only addition I did was drizzle some Sriracha Powder on top the fish after it’s cooked with green cabbage and sauce….

Panko/Parmesean crusted Tilapia in Tomato-Basil cream sauce

My daughter is loving this fish recipe I found.  I did everything step by step with 2 things different-  I used Roma Tomato’s instead of Cherry and I also drizzled the top of this with Thyme Honey Vinegar and you can taste the thyme in this.  I bought this new item at Trader Joe’s and kept…

Salmon with Quinoa Spinach, Mushrooms and Eggplant

I wanted to play with my veggies and I haven’t made Quinoa in a while so I decided to throw it all together.  I first slow cooked half of a sweet onion in 1 tsp EVO until yellow with crisp edges than added in couple handfuls of chopped mushrooms.  Once that cooked out it’s liquid…

Ahi Tuna Nicoise Salad

I was thinking about that salad from Public School 805….that Nicoise Albacore Salad and decided I need to make that.  I went to Gelson’s yesterday thinking, well I know they must have Albacore- a hard fish to find and I guess now they only do special orders on that fish because it is so expensive…

Pecan Hummus in Pistachio Oil

After reading up on different Hummus recipes online it helped give me an idea how to make it work except with the ingredients I want to use.  After making all those garbanzo beans from scratch last week I had lots of them just sitting in my frig- and sure now I”m seeing all these posts…

Shrimp with Gnocchi, Asparagus in garlic, basil Pesto

Sometimes I just pick up a protein for the day and rummage through my refrigerator to create something.  After pulling out a bundle of Asparagus  and staring down my large raw shrimp I did a quick search to find a tasty recipe but I changed it- I like the idea of Gnocchi with shrimp and asparagus…
