Florida Cracker Claw and Clam Chowder Recipe

Florida Cracker Claw and Clam Chowder is an ultimate comfort food.  It’s rich, chock full of crab claw and clam meat, and seasoned with Cajun flair.  I created this dish with a twist on traditional Bostonian clam chowder by adding a hint of Southern culture, specifically blue crab claw meat, simple Creole seasoning, and white […]

Sweet Potato, Prosciutto and Apple Galette Recipe

Sweet Potato, Prosciutto and Apple Galette

 One of my favorite parts about living in Florida is celebrating and enjoying everything that the seasons, like Fall, bring, without having to endure the chillier weather. Mainly, the seasonal food and ingredients, of course. To me, Fall screams comfort food- soups, stews, roasts, pies, etc., and I love to incorporate seasonal ingredients into […]

Fishmonger Tuna Burger with a Side of Double Barreled Potato Salad

As a first-time blogger with St Petersburg Foodies, I thought I’d introduce myself and tell you a little about my passion for seafood. I have loved seafood since I could crawl. As you’ll hear in my podcast, I’ve been fishing as long as I can remember. I have images in my head of me in […]

BLT Tostadas with Tomato Confit Recipe

Another shot of the BLT Tostadas

In our home, Bacon is basically a food group. I know better than to return home from a grocery run without some. Of all of the meats out there, in my opinion, it’s the most versatile. Additionally, Mexican food seems to happen with some frequency in our kitchen, as well.  In fact, I think Mike […]

Step aside, Avocado Toast, there’s a new and improved Toast in town!

Loaded Burger Bowls Recipe

Burger Bowl 2

Juicy burger patties straight from the grill piled high on toasted Brioche Buns with all of the fixings and a cold, cold beer- it screams summer. My mouth is watering with the thought of it, alone. However, that meal isn’t exactly swimsuit season friendly when consumed regularly- unwanted attributes that often accompany it are bloat […]

Ceviche, ready to serve

When it comes to cooking during these blazing-hot days and balmy evenings, we often want something cool and refreshing that doesn’t require standing over a hot stove.

Tacos are, in essence, a way of life for most. Whether for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner, Tacos are always acceptable.

Lamb Meatballs with Mint Pesto Recipe

Meatballs plated with Potatoes

In my opinion, Lamb and Spring go hand-in-hand. Most of the time when you think of lamb, you probably associate it with a beautiful rack served medium rare for Easter Dinner that took most of the day to prep. While there’s nothing wrong with a rack of lamb, it just isn’t the most conducive meal […]

If the thought of cooking Salmon with the skin on freaks you out a bit and puts a look of disgust on your face, I’m here to change that. Trust me, I, too, had a negative association with cooking Salmon with the skin still on. However, this is probably because I had only ever had […]

Warm Sausage and Apple Quinoa Salad with Roasted Delicata Squash and Walnut Salsa Recipe

The finished product

The best part about Fall in my opinion? The seasonal ingredients that it brings. Juicy Honeycrisp Apples, a plethora of Squash, vibrant Pomegranates and Persimmons and plenty of Chicory to go around. My hope with this dish was to create something that was comforting and reminiscent of the Fall season, while also remaining health-forward and […]

Shakshuka Recipe

Shakshuka

To date, I have made Shakshuka more times than I can count. Each time, I make additions that feel right and tweak the recipe, in hopes of reaching the status of can’t get enough, lick the plate-good. Recently, I added a can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (a pantry staple in our household) and […]
