Scallops are the Southern husband’s favorite, and lemon is the Southern husband’s favorite. Butter and cheese are two of my favorites, so I knew if I put all of these things together in one light and lovely recipe for scallops in lemon butter sauce, I pretty much couldn’t go wrong. And bonus points – this recipe takes about 15 minutes tops from walking into your kitchen to sitting down at your table (I love it when that happens!). Ready for dinner party deliciousness that is quick enough for a Monday school night? Let’s make it!
Here I present to you another case of not leaving well enough alone, because you KNOW I can’t help taking perfectly good recipes and mashing them up together. And I have to say, it doesn’t always work, but when it does work.., well, yum! And that was happily the case with these Caesar salad burgers. Your classic hamburger, covered not in ketchup and pickles but with a generous topping of Caesar salad and parmesan cheese.

I had a brief and intense fling with cauliflower during my brief and intense fling with the Atkins diet…the one that says you can have all the bacon that you want, so long as you don’t even THINK about eating one single solitary carbohydrate. Somewhere along the line I realized that pureed cauliflower tasted remarkably close to potatoes, which were forbidden.
Atkins and I had to break up quickly due to my inability to live without pasta, but one of the best things it gave me was a love for all things cauliflower…which in turn has lead to this scrumptious roasted cauliflower soup. Ready to get more delicious cauliflower into your life? 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.

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!
Well, we are out of the summer lounging season and back into the whirlwind of back to school and back to work and getting supper on the table in the midst of a thousand busy things on our list. And that is where this super easy recipe for aglio e olio comes in. Aglio e olio translates to garlic and oil, and that’s exactly what this is, along with Parmesan cheese and a little parsley and of course PASTA. It’s the perfect rush-around-day supper, for all kinds of reasons…not the least of which is that it is 100% delicious. And with that, let’s make it!
