Blue Crab Boil

A few weeks ago my husband came home from work with a surprise for me, a plastic bag filled with live Blue Crabs. Oh yea, that’s what I want to see at 5pm after a rather stressful day, a big bag of live sea creatures. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but sometimes I do […]

Spaghetti-Os  **Rated PG-13

I’ve been having so much fun using different pasta shapes and this time I decided to try Anellini Pasta which might be better known as the “O” in Spaghetti-Os!

Pasta with Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli

If it’s one thing I always have on hand it’s packages of frozen, cooked shrimp. Shrimp is absolutely one of my favorite foods and it’s so versatile.

I love cooking from my own garden. It’s so nice to just wander out to the garden and pick fresh vegetables for dinner! So far I am harvesting herbs, parsley, onions and most importantly Garlic Scapes! This is the first time I’ve grown garlic. Garlic is a winter crop, planted in October and then harvested […]
