Marinated Shrimp and Artichokes

Since I’ve started doing some catering, I’ve had fun going back to some of the old recipes my parents used to entertain with. One of mom’s favorite party appetizers is marinated shrimp and artichokes. It’s incredibly easy to throw together and completely make-ahead. And – I swear – people literally hover over it at parties.

Spicy Cajun Shrimp

For Matt (and probably everyone else in Boston), the Super Bowl may as well not be happening this year. I’m not even a big football fan, but I was definitely shouting at the tv the other weekend… Still, I love making football food. I’m sure we’ll still watch the game, but we’ll need some good [read more →]

Quick and Easy Garlic Shrimp

Garlic shrimp are one of my favorite Spanish tapas, and have become sort of a go-to dish for me. I can hardly call this a “recipe”; it’s more of a cooking method that is incredibly easy and basically fool-proof. I grew up eating garlic shrimp as a tapa, and my mom and I to this [read more →]

Making a paella has turned into an Easter tradition in my family. I don’t know when or how it came about. All I know is I look forward to it every year. Our Easter Sunday this year included Katie and Matt (who had just taken an overnight bus back from New York…he’s a trouper). We [read more →]

Summer Rolls

I absolutely love Vietnamese summer rolls, so last weekend I decided to learn how to make them myself to get my fix. I find that a lot of places make them too far ahead of time (I’m looking at you, Whole Foods); by the time they come to me, the rice paper loses the nice [read more →]

I realize that this is yet another post about a tomato recipe, but Matt had a huge bag of them in his apartment that needed to be used last weekend. His fault! I also wanted to use the Zingerman’s Marash pepper flakes he got me from his trip home to Ann Arbor the prevous weekend: [read more →]

Lobster Fideua

(As you can probably tell, I’m a little behind on blogging on all of my cooking while I was in Boston because we kind of cooked non-stop, but here goes my last post from my trip.) My parents met in Spain and lived there for some time before I came along and, as a result, [read more →]
