Grilled Chicken Caprese

I can't take all of the credit for the delicious chicken you see pictured. My boyfriend first made this for me a year ago. I was a little skeptical that I'd like it since I'm not a huge fan of balsamic vinegar, but I loved it. It had just enough balsamic to give it some… Continue reading Grilled Chicken Caprese

Chicken Fajitas

The boyfriend and I made chicken fajitas the other night. It was a nice easy dinner to make at the end of a work week. We used the rest of the chipotle lime crema from the mahi mahi tacos, too. We also had grilled corn on the cob on the side. I know the Italian… Continue reading Chicken Fajitas

Tempura Mahi Mahi Sushi

I made mango salsa to go on top of grilled Mahi Mahi the other weekend, and I had some left over. I wasn't quite in a taco mood yet, so I wanted to try something else with it. One of my friends came over for dinner when I made these. She said these had a… Continue reading Tempura Mahi Mahi Sushi

Mahi Mahi Tacos with Broccoli Slaw and Chipotle Lime Crema

Prepare yourself for a lot or Mahi Mahi posts in the near future. My boyfriend went on a fishing trip last weekend, and caught a lot! So far, we've made it grilled, tempura fried, into cooked sushi rolls, and now tacos. These tacos were amazing. I'd pay good money for these in a restaurant. The… Continue reading Mahi Mahi Tacos with Broccoli Slaw and Chipotle Lime Crema

Kentucky Hot Brown Stromboli

I have to give credit to Better Homes and Gardens for the idea and the recipe that served as the inspiration for what I made here. I actually only saw the concept in the magazine, made my own, and checked back to compare the recipes later. This varies from the traditional hot brown because it… Continue reading Kentucky Hot Brown Stromboli

Pasta with Easy Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce

I needed something quick and easy to make for dinner the other night. I'd just been to Lidl, and I got a pack of tricolor fusilli pugliesi, which I really wanted to use. This recipe would be good with pretty much any type of pasta, though. This is definitely coming to work with me for… Continue reading Pasta with Easy Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce

Fish & Shrimp Chowder

I made this for dinner last night, and it was so good, but I pulled some out of the fridge today to take a photo and decided it's even better the second day. I'm looking forward to having this again for lunch today and tomorrow. I used red drum as the fish in this recipe.… Continue reading Fish & Shrimp Chowder
