Sexy Fish Stew

So why is this dish named ‘Sexy Fish Stew’? To be honest, other than to peak your interest and get you to read the blog post, I don’t really know.  The origin of this dish is the Foodwishes blog, one of my favorite places to be entertained while looking for great things to eat.  I […]

Black Eyed Peas New Year

Eating black eyed peas for good luck on New Year’s Day is a Southern tradition, and as a Northerner this is one I am discovering later in life. My friend Amy had mentioned the tradition to me a few years ago, and last year I jumped onto the black eyed pea bandwagon. This year I […]

Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup

What’s wrong with this picture? Nothing technical this time – and I admit it is a bit subtle to the casual observer – but something is definitely missing. To understand I need to back up a step… The weather has turned cooler and it seemed a good time to make a nice pot of soup. […]

Southwestern Chicken Soup

Those of us in New England have been suffering through a cold and rainy week.  Since it feels more like early April than mid-June around here, a nice batch of hot chicken soup seemed like a great way to take the chill out of the air. The soup recipe I picked was from Eating Well […]

Dad’s Fish Stew

I was looking for something to make for lunch with my mother-in-law the other day and came across a recipe for “Dad’s Fish Stew”. How could an Evolved Dad not jump right on that? This was on the Simply Recipe’s blog, so knew it was going to be good (as everything I’ve made from there […]

[…]

Brazilian Fish Stew (Moqueca de Peixe)

Last night’s dinner was a Brazilian Fish Stew known as Moqueca de Peixe.  According to all I read, this is a traditional seafood dish from northern Brazil. This is a great fish stew, fragrant with garlic and peppers, featuring chunks of white fish and shrimp with hints of coconut milk. I found lots of recipes […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

There isn’t any Irish in this Swiss/German-Italian family, but that didn’t stop me from wanting to cook up something in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.  I am not a big corned beef and cabbage kind of guy, but do love stew…so stew it was! In the days leading up to March 17th I had seen […]

Quinoa Peanut Soup

We had a fantastic spicy vegetable, quinoa and peanut soup the other day. According to the Eating Well recipe this is a modern take on a traditional Bolivian soup called Sopa de Mani.  For us this was perfect for a quick late dinner on a night when we had an early evening commitment and weren’t going […]
