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 […]

Honey-Pepper Roasted Shrimp

Lemony Farro with Scallops

Recent conversation at our house: “We’re having farro for dinner tonight” “What?  We’re having ferret?” OK, so it might not have gone exactly like that… A little while ago we bought some farro – a whole-grain wheat product that looks a bit like barley but has a crunchy, nuttier flavor – and I’ve now made […]

Sounds […]

Cut the rhubarb and mince the ginger for dessert.  Whirl around and slice the shallot for the salad.  Spin back and chop the onion, […]

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)

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 […]
