This recipe is one of the ones I pull out when I want healthy plus easy plus flavorful plus I don’t want to face a lot of dishes at the end of it. (Or more accurately, I don’t want the Southern husband to face a lot of dishes at the end of it.) It cooks up all in one pan, and features almost every single one of my favorite flavors…one day I will figure out how to add some bacon to the mix and then my life will be complete.

Before I get into the deliciousness that is this recipe for roasted tomatoes with shrimp and feta, I have to say this: Ah, Fall. The days are shorter, the air is crisp and clean-smelling. We’ve used the fireplace for the first time, and I’ve gotten out all my cozy sweaters. It’s the perfect time to have an warm and easy supper that is rich with the flavors of sweet tomatoes and tangy feta and tender shrimp. Ready for one of my favorite seafood suppers? Let’s make it!
There’s nothing like a completely reliable, completely delicious chicken dinner recipe, unless it is knowing how to get a great rich tomato flavor out of tomatoes when tomatoes (sniffle!) are out of season. And this chicken with roasted tomato sauce delivers all of that and then some. Ready to meet your new favorite luscious chicken recipe? Let’s make it!
Ah, this salad. It is chock full of not only the scrumptious tastes of fall, but the carrots and the shallots and the slightly charred bits make it look like fall too. It is served just the right amount of warm, and while you don’t HAVE to do this, I like to make all this healthiness just the slightest bit naughty by adding a handful of bacon. I’m not saying this is ever going to replace mashed potatoes or sweet potato casserole on your holiday table…but you might want to make room for it alongside those favorites.

Two of the very favorite things in my kitchen are bacon and lemons – I am never without both of these. So I’m not sure why it took me so long to realize that the salty bacon and the tart taste of lemon would be heavenly together, but luckily I finally did…and in the form of the Southern husband’s all-time favorite pasta dish: the classic pasta carbonara. He is not a big pasta fan (I KNOW. MYSTERIOUS.) but he always makes an exception for silky, cheesy carbonara, and I’m happy to tell you that he gave this lemony version two Southern thumbs up.

Shrimp and grits, I love you way more than a Northern girl should. Maybe it is the Southern husband’s influence, but I have never met a shrimp and grits recipe I didn’t like, and this one is no exception, because it adds artichokes, one of my favorite veggies on earth.
The shrimp and artichokes are cooked in a delectable lemon garlic butter sauce, and then you spoon the whole thing over some grits that have been kicked up with a little butter and parmesan cheese. It’s shrimp and grits at the next level. It’s downright scrumptious. Let’s make it!
