I first shared this Ceviche recipe in 2016 – it’s about time we revisited it!
…Ceviche is one of my favorite ways to eat scallops, tuna, salmon… well just about any fish that can be made into a ceviche! The first time I had it was in a Cuban restaurant in Chicago. In Chicago for only a few days, I went back to eat it three times. After I got home I craved it, but no restaurant where I live served it, so I had to remember the flavor profile and learned to make it. Now I have it as often as I like…
I’ve been making these little gems for about a year now and we LOVE them!!! They are super easy to make and a punch of flavor… My Hubby calls them his new favorite dinner. He even asked for them for his birthday dinner!!! I wanted to have shrimp scampi but also had some wonton wrappers that I wanted to use and I’ve cheated using wonton wrappers for ravioli before…. so why not shrimp?!
I saw this idea of cooking confit chicken wings on a tv show late one night. They did it overnight in the oven so I decided I could do the same thing overnight in my slow cooker. I did a different flavor to mine that took them over the top! Not to be eaten every day of course. My son loved them so much that he ate almost all of them, which is okay because my hips thanked me later! In any case these are also great to serve at parties…
So my Hubby is a CPA and this time of year his firm is hopping with tax returns! During this season I always make lunch on Fridays for the wonderful people who work with and for him. Last Friday I made little sandwiches filled with a version of Waldorf Salad. Since all the girls wanted the recipe, I decided to blog it for them. I did end up using an ingredient I had never used before. Needing to make 20 of these little gems and finding that one whole rotisserie chicken wasn’t enough I went to my Covid cupboard and pulled out some canned chicken I had purchased at Sam’s Club. I was hesitant to use them since I have never used canned chicken before, but was surprised how well they enhanced and stretched the salad. I love happy accidents! Continue reading →
I’ve always been picky about the types of fish I like to eat. One fish that I made poorly when I was young and learning how to cook was swordfish. Well, it’s a new year and with 30 years of cooking experience I was sure to have better success! So here I went again trying my hand at Swordfish… Wow! Delicious! My hubby finished his Taco and then finished the Swordfish Sticks! It’s a very meaty fish and good for flash frying. Yay, success after all those years! Continue reading →
I’ve been into making different types of deep dish pizzas for lunch during the week. This week I made one with a Béchamel Sauce adding both Provolone & Pecorino cheese. I topped it with a Caesar Salad and dove in! What a hearty and fresh bite; heavy on the garlic…Yum! Continue reading →
I wanted to make this cheese steak pizza because I see people making them but not the way I remember eating them when I lived in Philly in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Although controversial among cheese steak ‘purists’, this is how I loved them when I lived there. So I decided to make the pizza my way… enter… ‘Processed Cheese!’ After the pizza came out of the oven a lovely layer of melted processed cheese was poured all over this beautiful deep dish and I was transformed to 1989 all over again… Now that’s what I’m talking about!Continue reading →
A few weeks ago I told you about one of my easy ‘go to’ dinners which led to my Egg White Frittata. Well this dinner doesn’t lead to any other meals, but it is super easy and super delicious for an I’m just too tired to cook night. Four ingredients, (not including salt & pepper), a 350° oven and 55 minutes. Continue reading →
