A pretty easy, quick and inexpensive shellfish to cook are mussels. Mussels are pretty versatile too. You can steam them in a variety of liquids – juice, wine, beer, coconut milk… in this next recipe I use sake!
Sadly, this next post I only have one photo. I make and come up with a lot of recipes during the course of the week. Many of which even though they are good I only make one time. It is the great recipes which I choose to blog about and make again. I was expecting this next recipeRead more
I love a really good piece of tuna. It tastes so fresh and delicious. And one of the best parts of making tuna is all you need to is sear it, so its cooked in minutes! Makes for a really fast dinner!
Now that I am “cheffing” as a profession some may think I now make elaborate meals every night of the week. Well what I have found in actuality is I am spending less time in my own kitchen, cooking less for myself and more for others. So I am still all about quick fast mealsRead more
Scallops are the fast thing I seem to make, and also the easiest. They literally are placed in a hot pan with oil for a minute and then flipped and cooked another minute. So if you, like me, like to have some quick weeknight dinners to pull out of your back pocket here is another oneRead more
Sometimes I feel like a broken record when I talk about my love for quick and easy weeknight dinners. But I really love discovering those recipes which don’t necessarily taste like they were a simple dish to throw together. This next recipe is just that!
I have a favorite recipe for clams which involves placing them on the BBQ until they pop open and then tossing in them a spicy garlic oil. I have never made a clam dish that I like better until this next recipe. And since this next recipe does not involve having to go outside toRead more
Hey, remember me? Rosemary who cooks a lot. I can forgive you if you don’t, I have been SO busy I didn’t post a new recipe all last week! That was first…and hopefully a last. With the holiday’s approaching and some last minute airline tickets to use up, it’s been a while since I haveRead more
As much as I love to eat Asian food I have never made a dumpling, wonton or potsticker from scratch. It has always seemed like SO much work, especially when I can easily order delicious dumplings/wontons/potstickers from my Chinese delivery restaurant. But in the interest in expanding my culinary ability I decided it was timeRead more
Ok so there is no trick, only scallops. But Happy Halloween everyone!! Scallops are one of those ingredients which are a treat. I love not only eating scallops but since scallops cook quickly they make for a nice fast dinner to cook. But scallops can be expensive so I really don’t cook them allRead more
More fish? Why not! Since I am in a self-proclaimed fish kick why not embrace it. This time I am making halibut! Halibut is a lean mild fish. It is pretty firm but also very tender. It is often used in fish and chips (delicious), but I didn’t fry the halibut for this next recipe.
I seem to be in a bit of seafood kick right now. In my last post I made a super easy clam recipe and really hope some readers do try that recipe. Not only is it good but it’s a sense of accomplishment to use an ingredient which can be intimating. This next recipe usesRead more
Lately I have been noticing I have been buying and making clams a lot more. I really enjoy clams. They are pretty versatile and they don’t take long to cook. Plus there is something kind of fun about pulling your food out of a popped open shell! As an Italian girl even though I don’tRead more
Part of the awesomeness of going through my cookbooks and tagging a recipe and then opening that book again about 6 months later is it’s a total surprise to see what I will be cooking. I have cooked some things I would normally shy away from (because I made it a rule that I can’t opt out ofRead more
This week a new restaurant opened in Walkerville. It’s called Ceilidh Maritime Pub located at 1801 Wyandotte Street East. I went opening night to check it out. They serve East Coast Maritime food, which means seafood! Lots of seafood!! (If you aren’t into seafood you won’t have much to choose from…but since I love seafood theRead more
The next recipe tagged will the be last recipe I will be making from this cookbook. I have gone through the entire book and have not found another recipe that peaks my interest. It is a beautiful book, very large with lots of great photos. But I have really had a hard time finding recipesRead more
