Camarones a la plancha - Shrimp on the griddle

Camarones a la plancha - Shrimp on the griddle by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious mexican shrimp dish that you'll find served in the lovely seaside restaurants along both of Mexico's coast. The wonderful smells of the shrimp, garlic, and onion will fill your house and make everyone's mouths water. I cooked these tonight for Cinco de Mayo and both we and our kids absolutely loved them. I left…

Korean Nakji Bokkeum (Spicy Octopus Stir Fry)

Korean Nakji Bokkeum (Spicy Octopus Stir Fry) by jason kim

We finally got to enjoy a spicy seafood dish when we found some frozen octopus at the local Asian market. Instead of using our usual Korean store, which is handicapped with bad produce, limited ingredients, and overpricing, we have been finding more and more Korean items like this for our dishes.....full story and recipe at…

BBQ Pork Tenderloin - Spanish Style

BBQ Pork Tenderloin - Spanish Style by John Spottiswood

This dish is from south-eastern Spain where Moorish influences are still found in many dishes. The combination of middle eastern spices and pork is wonderful. These are often served on kebabs as part of a tapas dish called Pinchos Morunos. You can follow the same directions below, cutting the meat into 1 inch chunks and grilling for…

Mario's Kick-Ass Barbecue Sauce

Mario's Kick-Ass Barbecue Sauce by Robyn Savoie

This sauce recipe deserves 5 stars! I adapted the original recipe by adding the zest from the fresh orange and lemon. Also used coarse-grain brown mustard instead of Dijon; your preference. Finally, my hot sauce of choice is Cholula plain but I think the lime flavored would work great too. I Shanghai'd this recipe and the…

Italian Turnip Greens

Italian Turnip Greens by Carolinaheartstrings

I love me some greens. It doesn’t matter if it’s collards, turnip or what-have-you. Now my dad, who is deceased, used to talk about his Italian mother cooking greens. I only wish I’d asked him just what kind of greens she cooked. So, on a whim instead of using ham with these greens I decided to use some Italian sausage in a nod to…

Baked Stuffed Clams

Baked Stuffed Clams by B Innes

These make a great appetizer, or serving a couple they make a nice dinner, and occasionally to make them truly elegant I top them with Hollandaise sauce for a decadent treat. You can get fresh clams and open them yourself and save the shells to reuse, or use large scallop shells which are easier to find, or even place in ramekins,…

Caribbean Peas & Rice

Caribbean Peas & Rice by John Spottiswood

This popular dish throughout the Caribbean is similar to red beans and rice, but made with a few more spices and with crowder, pidgeon, or black-eyed peas instead of red beans. If you can't find any of these, though, red beans make a fine substitute. This is great comfort food that is a nice mellow contrast to spicy-sweet Caribbean…

Lite and Fabulous Steak Pizzaiola

Lite and Fabulous Steak Pizzaiola by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

This Italian classic is simply steak topped with a quick cooking, zesty, pizza-like sauce. Sometimes it’s topped with cheese. I’m using very lean top sirloin but if you’d prefer to use flank steak or skirt steak, just reduce the cooking time a bit. Doesn’t matter how you cook your filet, the sauce absolutely makes this dish. The…

Shrimp & Crab Egg Rolls

Shrimp & Crab Egg Rolls by jason kim

The kids got a nice surprise last weekend when they were allowed to help me make some seafood egg rolls. It's a major high for them since we rarely let them help out cook despite their incessant pleas and begging. And to our surprise, they did a pretty good job........full story and recipe at

Low Calorie and Delish, Coq au Vin

Low Calorie and Delish, Coq au Vin by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

This is a wonderful low calorie and low fat version of the French classic chicken dish. The French pronunciation is kɔk o vɛ̃. It’s so easy and straightforward. I’ve served it many times and everyone loves it. My version uses white wine instead of red wine, which creates a lighter tasting sauce and is cooked on the stove top instead…

Spicy & Smokey Tomato Lobster Soup

Spicy & Smokey Tomato Lobster Soup by Sherri Williams

Tomato soup happens to be one of my favorites soups. The addition of smoke, pancetta and lobster takes this completely over the top.
