Thai Seafood Curry Recipe

thai-seafood-curry-recipe-featured-9615.jpg

This is one of my go-to dishes when I’ve run out of time, have barely any fresh ingredients in the house and in need of a spicy fix. Thai curry only takes 15 minutes to make, from start to finish, including the rice if you use my microwave method. The recipe is crazy flexible – use whatever seafood you’d like …

Miso Butter Shrimp Recipe

Miso-Butter-Shrimp-Recipe-featured-9480

When shrimp goes on sale, I always snag a bag or two of frozen shrimp. There’s no use getting the defrosted shrimp behind the glass partition, that shrimp was just the same frozen shrimp, but defrosted. I figure, the less hands that have touched my shrimp, the better.

It’s a quarterly magazine sold at retail stores (most bookstores and I think I saw it at Costco and Target too), featuring women passionate about food, their kitchens and their stories.

Zucchini Frittata Recipe

I’ve known Giuliano, Lael and the girls since their early days of the blog. The Hazan’s live in Sarasota, Florida, just a few minutes hop down the interstate from us. If you’re not familiar with Giuliano, I’m sure you’ve heard of his mother, Italian cooking doyenne, Marcella Hazan, whom I was lucky enough to spend time with a couple of …
