Seafood Corn Chowder

Now that summer is coming to an end, I thought it would be appropriate to make one last dish to celebrate the season. And what would be better than something with fresh seafood and something that requires minimum cooking effort in this scorching weather?… Read More Seafood Corn Chowder

Hello Summer!

Shrimp & Veggie Pasta Salad with Lemon-Herb Vinaigrette

One of my favorite recipes to make for a summer BBQ or outdoor party is Shrimp and Veggie Pasta Salad with Lemon-Herb Vinaigrette. It has a light, lemony herb dressing with fresh basil, parsley, dill and tarragon, along with a touch Dijon mustard, Champagne vinegar, olive oil and fresh lemon.

I love using big seashell pasta and adding plenty of fresh veggies including cucumbers, celery, roasted red peppers, grilled corn and scallions for some extra crunch, and fresh sautéed shrimp, which you can also grill if you prefer. It goes perfectly with grilled chicken, burgers, skewers and fresh fruit like watermelon, pineapple and mango.… Read More Shrimp & Veggie Pasta Salad with Lemon-Herb Vinaigrette

Food Styling for Mario Lopez and Avocados from Mexico on NBC Live and Bethenny Shows!

Big Pot of Comfort :: Spicy Cajun Chili with a Kick!

Chili is one of my go-to recipes when the Autumn leaves start turning colors and the weather starts getting cooler – especially on a crisp weekend night cuddled under some fuzzy blankets with me and my kitty cat watching some movies. Or with a group of friends watching everyone go crazy on college football game day. There’s nothing better than that. And, it’s an easy thing to make and dishes out a big dose of comfort. The best part is once I make a big pot, I can eat it for a few days and then throw the rest in the freezer for later (unless all my crazy friends dig in and there’s nothing left to show for it which actually makes me the happiest!)… Read More Big Pot of Comfort :: Spicy Cajun Chili with a Kick!

Crunchy Chicken Fajita Wraps w/ Habanero-Green Chile & Pepper Jack Cream

This is an easy, tasty dish I whipped up the other night that is a spin on Chicken Fajitas. The main difference being that these have a crunchy, toasted tortilla that you eat the Fajitas on – either flat like a pizza, rolled up like a burrito or wrap, or folded in half like a… Read More Crunchy Chicken Fajita Wraps w/ Habanero-Green Chile & Pepper Jack Cream

Spice up Your Night w/ Southern-Style Taco Soup

Southern-Style Taco Soup is something I discovered when I lived down South in Atlanta. My ex-boyfriend’s Mom (a great Southern cook from Alabama) made this for us everytime we came home to visit on a chilly winter night and it was completely delicious – similar to chili yet a warm flavorful soup with corn, black beans, kidney beans and green chilies and diced tomatoes.… Read More Spice up Your Night w/ Southern-Style Taco Soup
