Lamb Meatballs with Mint Pesto

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…

Shakshuka Recipe

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…

Serving up a Low Country Boil for family and friends is a fun way to ride out those last days of summer...and there are only a few days left.

Corn and Crawfish Pie…

Crawfish pie. It is the one and only thing my eight year-old son had on his New Orleans bucket list. He had his hopes set on finding a version as good as--or better than--the pie from Vivian's Cajun Crawfish Pies at downtown St. Petersburg’s Saturday Morning Market. Her version is chock full of crawfish and…

Red Beans and Rice…

Weekly food traditions are a fun way to plan the week. Some of my favorites have been Sandwich Sunday, Meatless Monday, and Taco Tuesday; I'm a sucker for alliteration.

My First Taste of Masala…

The date was October 3, 1999. The time was 11:00pm. How could I remember my first taste of masala so clearly? It was my second date--the day after our first date--with my now husband, Ed. After hitting three restaurants in Tampa in a 24-hour span, we decided to explore downtown St. Petersburg to grab a late…
