Caesar Salad Recipe with Shrimp & Quinoa

This shrimp Caesar salad recipe begins like any other Caesar salad with Romaine lettuce and Parmesan . Shrimp, quinoa take it to a whole new level.

A Caesar salad recipe that's kicked up with shrimp and quinoa! The only thing I find more disgusting than a cooked, eaten chicken carcass is a lobster carcass.  Not that I've eaten a whole lobster or anything. My husband and I got engaged in Sanibel Island, Florida.  We went out to celebrate at a local restaurant known for its lobster.  I had every intention of consuming my own until I caught a glimpse of the tables around me. … Continue reading →

Grilled Shrimp Nachos

Grilled shrimp nachos are easy to prepare and taste delicious!

 Grilled shrimp nachos for those nights when you don’t want to turn on the oven!  The grill does the work, you enjoy the meal! It's been in the upper 80's here this week.  I shouldn’t complain because it’s been a good summer, but I'm gonna complain anyway.  That's what we do after all, complain when we are cold and complain when we are hot.  It's just human nature.  Rather, it's my human nature. Days like this I find myself without … Continue reading →

Spicy Shrimp Boil #ShrimpShowdown

Spicy Shrimp Boil |

I received products for this post, however all opinions are 100% my own. Get ready for some finger-licking fun!  Shrimp, potatoes, sausage and corn boiled together with lots of spice! Finger food at it’s finest! Three years ago, my good friend introduced my family to Frogmore Stew.  Being naive northerners, we had no idea exactly what “Frogmore” was but we were open to trying it.  We never looked back!  That was hands down one of the best … Continue reading →

Salmon Tacos with Jalapeno Cream

Salmon Tacos with Jalapeno Cream

Fish tacos are one of my favorite summertime meals!  They are the perfect light dinner! These tacos are made with spicy salmon and are topped with a jalapeno cream! My family and I recently spent the week at the beach in North Carolina.  It was wonderful, with the exception of the bright red, oddly shaped sunburn I acquired on our first day.  I love the beach.  I never tire of listening to the calming rhythms of the waves rolling onto … Continue reading →

BLT Salmon

Salmon simply cooked and topped with fresh spinach, tomatoes and of course bacon!

  Simply cooked salmon gets piled high with cherry tomatoes, spinach and lots of bacon! I was at the pool, yesterday with my kids.   It was a fabulous day, water was the perfect temperature, and the pool wasn't too crowded.  We were able to ride the waterslide with minimal wait.  Same goes for the diving board.  I don't do the diving board that often  anymore. I tried to tell my kids how much I USED to really love jumping off the … Continue reading →

Low Country Boil

Low Country Shrimp Boil

We went to the "low country" for vacation.  The low country being South Carolina.  Apparently all of Ohio vacations there.  We felt right at home.   I think us northerners really annoy the locals, but I'm ok with that. This was the first time my 3 little stooges saw the ocean.  The first thing they did when we arrived on the soft sandy beach was flop down and make sand angels.  They looked like three pale starfishes! I love beach vacations! … Continue reading →
