Caprese Bruschetta

Sliced french bread smeared in olive oil, minced garlic, topped with burrata, tomatoes, and basil cooked under the broiler for about 6 minutes topped with some balsamic glaze (or thickened balsamic vinaigrette- mine was bought, but you can just add regular balsamic or use this recipe, which is delicious.)

Surprise Date Night 

The hubby and I only get a few date nights. Some are planned and some are unexpected.  I was planning on going to a Barre class, but the hubby got off earlier than expected. Normally I would stand by my workout class, but since it is summer I am able to workout a lot more…

Impromptu Date Night

Was looking forward to a quiet evening with a spread of Indian take out. Didn’t happen, but got to spend an impromptu sushi date night with the hubby. This was the spicy mayo eel roll (Gaga roll) and the shrimp tempura roll (Dragon Roll). Close-up…that spicy mayo is amazing!  Pan-fried dumplings and Pork Shumai  All of…

The atmosphere was amazing, cool Korean music blared, and everyone looked like they were just having a great night of fun, friends, family, and…

Linguine and Clams

Happy Friday!!! So earlier in the week when I made my meal plan, I asked the girls if they would rather order pizza or me make something for dinner on Friday night. They wanted to know what I might make, so I took the risk and said pasta with clams. They wanted clams. I even…

Garlic Seafood Pasta

Evening kids! 2nd post of the day! Since the last time we talked, the family, including the dog, went on a nice hike at our local park. We came home and I started cooking this amazing dinner. Earlier today we all went grocery shopping. I noticed some peeled and deveined shrimp were on sale, so I…

Cravings…

Cravings… Steak…Porterhouse…Medium Rare…Perfection The cooking time all depends on the size and thickness of your steak and how well done you like it. Mine was on the smaller size and not too thick. Season your steak with salt and pepper on both sides. I like mine medium rare, so I cooked it on the first…
