Spring Shrimp Salad

Spanish Shrimp Asparagus Roasted Red Pepper Onion Tomato

Alright so I’m going to let you in on a little secret…I’ve actually never cooked shrimp before. Seriously, first time ever. Why you ask?  Because growing up I hated fish, shellfish and mollusks (much to the dismay of my Filipino family, I mean seriously – what kind of Filipina doesn’t like seafood?) But I honestly didn’t like it.  To me shrimp ... Read More »

Leftover Bolognese Hash

[divider_flat] So you’ve made the Lightened-Up Bolognese Sauce I posted (or somebody else’s, lol) and you’ve got a lot left.  Because really, if you’re going to go all out and make a sauce you’re not going to mess around with a measly two cups worth (yeah – cooking power!)

Beefy Butternut Chili

Twenty…more…weeks… *sigh* But my birthday is Monday (yay!) and my ... Read More »

Chicken, Chickpea and Chipotle Chili Soup

As I wrote the title of this post I just realized I had made another version of 3 C soup.  If you want to see the other one check out my Chorizo, Chickpea and Collard Green Soup. Anyway, let’s get back to this post though.  I’m not sure if I can properly express the deliciousness of this soup.  The picture ... Read More »

Creamy Mushroom Pasta

  Ok, I have a confession – mushrooms…freak me out. I hate touching them.  They’ve got a weird texture and those giant Portobello mushrooms caps also have those really dark brown gills that you scrape out (a task I usually delegate to my husband). Then you get to those really crazy looking ones too – like cloud ear, oyster, morels ... Read More »
