Remember a few days ago when I said the next few weeks on this here website were going to be a mix of super easy recipes and super fancy recipes? Welcome to the fancy part…I give you these very dramatic, very scrumptious, very holiday-colored crab towers! And I know, they LOOK all complicated, but remember this is me you are talking to, and I don’t do complicated. So if you are looking for a show-stopper first course for your holiday table, look no further and let’s make them!
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. Ready for the scrumptiousness that is easy roasted lemon herb chicken? Let’s make it!
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!
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.
Ready to give your pasta some lemony sass? Let’s make it!
This easy recipe for penne with roasted tomatoes and fresh ricotta gives a whole new meaning to pasta with tomato sauce! Simple and delicious.
Crab cakes are an absolute favorite in my house, and not just any old crab cake. Nope, we roll with potato chip crab cakes, which swap out the usual bread crumb filler for crushed potato chips. And since I have flipped many a crab cake when cooking in a frying pan only to have it break apart into crab cake crumbles, this recipe calls for baking them in the oven. No flipping required.
So if you are looking for a good, basic, delicious crab cake recipe with a little pizzazz, look no further because you have found it. Let’s make it!
