Regardless how much we love to cook, we all have those days that cooking isn’t the top thing on our minds. Yesterday was one of those days but you still have to eat and dining out wasn’t really an option. Continue reading Leftovers!

Who doesn’t like pasta? Baby Lady & I love pasta and are thankful for whoever invented pasta and the faithful followers who have continued to improve upon it. There is a pasta for everyone and so many different shapes and sizes. You have Anelli (Rings), Capellini D’Angelo (Angel Hair Pasta), Fettuccine (Small Ribbons), Fusilli (Twisted Spaghetti), Linquine (Small Tongues), Rigatoni (Large Grooved Pasta), Spaghettini (Narrow Spaghetti), just to name a few.

Spicy Paprika Cauliflower Soup with Dumplings

One of the food magazines Baby Lady & I read is Saveur. I have a Zinio subscription which is delivered directly to my PC, my MacBook and my iPad. It’s great on the iPad because if I ever want to cook a recipe from it the iPad is so Portable and takes up so little counter space. When I received the November 2011 Saveur magazine, in an article, The Art of Soup, Baby Lady noticed the recipe for Karfiolleves (Paprika Spiced Cauliflower Soup with Dumplings), a traditional Hungarian soup. As it should be, soup making is serious business in Hungary. Most meals in Hungary begin with a soup and cauliflower is a common soup ingredient.

I love the combination of citrus and seafood. It is a match made in heaven. Continue reading Red Snapper with Avocado and Basil Grapefruit Salad and Pine Nuts (Pignoli)

Baby Lady says this is such a pretty dish. She’s right. It is. This is another one of the recipes from the Blue Tomato. If you like large appetizers, this fits the bill. Personally, we think of it as a perfect lunch. Baby Lady loves the tomato ceviche sauce that accompanies this dish. The flavors are in perfect balance. P-H-E-N-O-M-I-N-A-L!!!

Tacos de Pescado al Mojo de Ajo (Fish Tacos with Garlic Salsa)

Pescado al Mojo de Ajo

Another WOW moment in our culinary journey. This post is for my buddy Brenda because she wants it. I’ve noticed posts of late really tend toward Mexican/Southwest cuisine. We really like this style of cooking but maybe we’re in a rut. I don’t know. So, I was going to post some really terrific European dishes. Nonetheless, Brenda asked me what we had for dinner last night and I told her we had fish tacos. She wanted to know what was in it so I told her. She said it sounded great (It is) and what were we fixing tonight. I laughed and told her we were considering doing it again because it was THAT GOOD.  She asked me if I would post it here, so here it is. Thank Brenda because I wasn’t going to post it for a while as I am missing some photos (which I will have to post later) but… Continue reading Tacos de Pescado al Mojo de Ajo (Fish Tacos with Garlic Salsa)
