Gulf Coast Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa

May 1, 2011
Gulf Coast Shrimp Quesadillas or Tacos

The Foodie Groom selected the recipe for this week’s Project Pastry Queen challenge: Gulf Coast Shrimp Quesadillas. For as often as we have quesadillas, they have made shockingly few appearances on our blog. Thanks to some sloppy knife work, dinner prep was cut a bit short and we ended up with Gulf Coast Shrimp Tacos [...]

Fish Tacos with Mango Slaw

April 19, 2011

Before I retired to the Mommy Sector, my day ended at 5pm (on a rare good day). I’d sit in traffic – because even against the flow, traffic in Houston always stinks. I’d get home, stand in front of an open the fridge, and then the real rush hour began – figuring out what to [...]

Tomatillo Shrimp Fajitas

The Foodie Groom and I are constantly working to make sure the Foodie Baby is exposed to a crazy-wide variety of foods while she is young. With work (and let’s face it, probably some luck), we hope to avoid The Picky Toddler horror stories we’ve read about and witnessed. So far, we’ve been lucky. She [...]

Caramelized Scallops with White Wine

The Foodie Groom loves scallops. Like, loves. Similar to my love for all things chocolate + peanut butter. But times 14. I waited quietly while he was flipping through our shiny new copy of Big Bowl of Love, waiting on him to get to the scallops recipe I had seen earlier. Big juicy scallops, caramelized, [...]

Our favorite way to make them is crusted with pecans and topped with basil aioli. We’ve deviated a few times and we’re not usually impressed enough to make a permanent change. Not [...]

Filet Oscar Crostini

When people ask me which recipe from the blog is our favorite, we don’t really have to think about it. The one dish that I think everyone in the world should try once is Filet Oscar: filet (or tenderloin steak) topped with crab meat, asparagus tips, and Bearnaise sauce. It sounds fancy but each component [...]

Crab Cakes with Spicy Avocado Sauce

The seafood counter at my grocery store makes a killer Maryland crab cake. I just happened to walk by as they were setting up the demo area to showcase on-sale crab. I could buy crab… or I could just buy the crab cakes they were making fresh right in front of me, behind the seafood [...]
