Baked Salmon topped with Parmesan & Herbs

I come each night ready to get to work. I mean, I was at work all day, but when I get home, I am ready to organize, hang pictures, and unpack.

One-Pot Shrimp and Elbow Pasta

Life has calmed down enough that I have been home before 8 pm every night this week- crazy right?!? Last night, I was home at 5:30. I feel like I have so much extra time on my hands.

Simple Shrimp Skewers

I have an obsession with shrimp. At my cousin’s beautiful wedding last weekend, I stationed myself in from of the shrimp appetizers until my hubby had to take my arm and walk me away.

Ricotta Shrimp Over Polenta

Just looking at the pictures of this meal makes me drool. I licked the plate clean!! I love shrimp, cheese, and polenta, so this was a fun recipe to create and especially to eat. When Austin and I were dating long-distance, almost every time Austin came to visit, we ate a meal similar to these– the original recipe came from… Continue reading

Seafood Stew

I’m excited to share this month’s recipe from the Secret Recipe Club. I was paired up with the Cookaholic Wife. I love her blog design– it has a similar color scheme to mine, and I really enjoyed digging around for recipes. At first, I was set on making something with bananas. I have a bunch of bananas a little past… Continue reading
