Scampi that Keeps the Vampires away!

Scampi that Keeps the Vampires away!

This is a very, very quick dinner that can be prepared in about 15 minutes. Start your pasta water first, and then chop the garlic and parsley. By the time you get all the ingredients together, the water is boiling. You will be eating in […]

Buuuuuunnnndt?

Buuuuuunnnndt?

If you didn’t get my obscure reference to Big Fat Greek Wedding and the confusing bundt cake, then you seriously need to watch it again… :) I’ve had this rose shaped bundt pan for going on 5 years from my favorite kitchen store, Sur la […]

Mahi Mahi with Mmmango Salsa

Mahi Mahi with Mmmango Salsa

This dish is one of my favorite mid-week dinners. Its all of 30 minutes prep and maybe 10 minutes of actual cooking. Too easy for words, but looks tres chic.

The colors of the mango salsa are vibrant and makes for a very beautiful presentation. This is a great dinner to make when you have guests coming. I served it with steamed Jasmine rice and Sauteed Green Beans.

Grilled Greek Pizza

Grilled Greek Pizza

Yesterday I attempted grilled pizza again. I ‘winged’ it a few months ago, and it was… well, not so good. I rushed it, didn’t allow the dough to rest properly and did not roll it thin enough. The crust really puffed up and was quite […]

A Peek in my Pantry

A Peek in my Pantry

Since I’m actually organized for the first time in my life, I thought my first blog post should be about my pantry. I’m darn proud of my pantry and my fabulous rack… spice rack… that is. I’m a huge fan of using a lazy susan for spices, oils, vinegars, etc… so you can actually see what you have, without tearing your pantry apart. My previous pantry was so unorganized I would constantly buy things I already had. Never again!

I’ve purchased plastic containers for all my dry goods. Not only does it keep moisture and those lovely South Florida bugs out of your food, it’s much more organized than having boxes and bags of stuff everywhere. I even borrowed the label maker from my office and labeled everything… yeah, I’m a full-fledged kitchen geek.
