Jerk-Rubbed Catfish with Spicy Cilantro Slaw

I’ve been trying (once more) to incorporate a little more sustainable seafood into our diet. US Farmed Catfish is rated as a ‘best choice’ by Monterrey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch, so I figured we should add a bit of catfish into our life. And it’s pretty affordable too! Cooking Light ran a recipe section last […]

Spicy Shrimp and Grits

I love grits. I was raised on cream of wheat, which is similar, but in my opinion, inferior to grits. I hadn’t had grits until I got to college, and then I started eating them every morning for breakfast. Some butter, some cheese, some salt and pepper. Yum. Breakfast of champions. Ha.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Ah yes, the infamous tuna noodle casserole. Typically it includes a can of some kind of condensed soup so I tend to avoid it. I know. That just sounded really snooty. Sorry about that. I just like it when I know exactly what things are made out of. Well, Cooking Light ran a section on […]

For this special occasion, he researched recipes, trying to find something relatively ‘gourmet’ while also being easy enough […]

So here’s another recipe that’s healthy but super flavorful. I was really surprised at how good it tasted since I wasn’t sure that I liked black eyed peas, but apparently I do, at least prepared this way! There is a lot of chopping of veggies for this recipe, but I felt like it paid off […]

Tilapia Piccata

Shrimp Scampi

Here was one of my quick meals that I decided to try after asking you guys what you do for a quick meal! I got some US Farmed Shrimp (which is a ‘Good Alternative’ according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Sustainable Seafood Chart) and peeled and de-veined them myself (which made the meal not quite […]
