Recipes, Ramblings & Photography of a Foodie


Vodka Dill Cured Salmon Gravlax

Do you hear that… the drum roll in the background?  Or is it just in my head?  Because, I am SUPER excited to share, not only this recipe, but a SERIES of recipes that utilize this vibrant, orange beauty of a protein!  So, if you can’t hear them, use your auditory imagination…hear the drum beat […]

Candied Walnuts

I want to start this post by apologizing to you all!  I did not realize until yesterday, that I never posted the recipe for these delectable candied walnuts.  I included the recipe for them in the Blackened Scallop Salad I posted a few weeks back.  However, I removed that portion of the recipe, because I […]

Jalapeno Popper Hummus

I love chick peas.  My Mother and Boy detest them; my best friend is “not a huge fan”.  Suits me just fine, more for ME!  I do not really understand what exactly about this wonderful, protein packed, little gem of smooth, creamy deliciousness puts them off.  Anyone?  Help me understand this… feel free to just […]

Asian Krab Stack (for my birthday)

I use to be a birthday person.  If I am being honest, that is probably an understatement… of a lifetime.  I USED to be THE birthday celebratory chick-a-dee’… Cubic Zirconia adorned crown included. I pretty much LIVED (I might be a tad bit over exaggerating, kind of) for that ONE day a year where people […]

Sweet & Sour Hawaiian Chicken Burgers

Ahhh, the 4th of July.  It conjures up visions of red, white & blue.  Fireworks, block parties, kids running through the celebratory streets with sparklers.  Children (and adults who act like children) throwing those ‘snaps’ on the ground producing a “POP!” sound (normally aimed at my feet). The day invokes the smell of the grill […]

Mushroom Marsala Cream Sauce for Steaks

I’m going to share something with you that may make some of you question my integrity as a food blogger.  But, I like to be honest!  If this makes you no longer want to be friends… I guess I will just have to accept that, move on with my life, sadly and accompanied by many […]

Low & Slow, PERFECTLY Cooked Steak

I have a TON of kitchen gadgets.  I kid you not, it’s an embarrassing amount… stuffed in drawers, busting out of cabinets, still in their brown, just delivered to my doorstep, box… should I be ashamed??  While I love and use some of them more than others, as a foodie, I feel like they are […]

Zucchini Parmesan Nepoleon Stacks

I love the Spring/Summer season.  The in between both seasons, where the weather can’t decide which  it wants to be….  warm yet not TOO hot, birds chirping, flowers full blooming and love in the air time of year.  (*I do NOT love that it is also extremely rainy and allergy season, ‘hachew!  Sniffle, sniffle’). Along […]
