When you love a person, you’ll do anything to make them happy. That includes making their favorite clam dish, even if you wouldn’t touch a clam to your lips with a ten foot pole!
I’m huge fan of lettuce wraps.
It’s not that I’m skipping wheat wraps these days to save calories, or because I’m sensitive to gluten. I simply love the fresh crunch those green leaves give to every bite of whatever filling I decide to drop in the middle.
Do you remember the broccolette I bought at Costco a few weeks ago to serve with this chicken in a lemony thyme sauce?
We liked that broccoli so much, we decided to dish it up with meaty chunks of cod, and lacking the energy for a multiple pan meal determined a roast in the oven was the way to go.
Mondays are back to reality days, aren’t they?
This time of year when I’ve spent the weekend shopping, shmoozing with friends, and generally goofing off, I need Mondays to get back on track. That includes a few lighter meals to ward off any holiday pounds that might have crept on over the weekend.
This easy Mediterranean chopped salad with tender baby shrimp and feta cheese fits the bill perfectly.
When it comes to making a quick and healthy meal, stir fried vegetables and shrimp top my list.
I used to relegate this particular shellfish to special occasions. I thought it was too expensive to put in my cart, but that wasn’t true.
Do people avoid cooking because recipes have too many ingredients and complicated instructions?
As my lovely sister-in-law and I were drooling over salad recipes this weekend, Vanessa made just that comment.
She said that many recipes required an amazing list of ingredients, most of which she would have to buy, and probably never use again.
What’s more, the instructions were endless. As a working mother of two young boys, she had no time, or energy, to tackle a cooking project.
