Sauteed Shrimp and Broccoli – with cashews and bell peppers
Apparently, life has decided to play a silly little trick on me. You see, about 6 weeks ago, I fell madly in love. As in head over heels in love. And ever since I laid eyes on her, I just can’t seem to get her out of my mind. In fact, she’s all I can think about! […] The post Sauteed Shrimp and ...
Simple Tuna Rotini Salad
My baby grand-daughter, she LOVES pasta. Recently, she sort of went through a phase where she would pretty much refuse to eat anything but that. I can’t really blame her though, as she comes from a family of big time pasta lovers. My dad used to eat pasta EVERY SINGLE DAY without fail, and for the
Bocconcini Stuffed Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

Lemon Sesame Pistachio Crusted Chicken
A lot of people, at least in my part of the world, seem to think that chicken is kinda boring and wouldn’t make for a suitable choice of protein to put on the menu of a sophisticated dinner. Me? I couldn’t disagree more. Personally, I think that chicken can be absolutely brilliant, and I’ll take a
Dutch Oven Roasted Duck
I fell so madly in love with my Dutch Oven for roasting chicken that I decided to try and use the same method to make an Oven Roasted Duck. I’m a huge fan of duck, because its meat is naturally so super tasty, but I find it also tends to be a little bit on the tough side […] The post Dutch Oven ...
