Grilled Langoustines (Cigalas a la Plancha)

Grilled Langoustines (Cigalas a la Plancha)

It’s been a few months since I posted a new tapas recipe, probably because I had to cancel my month in Granada. However yesterday I decided to splurge and pick up some langoustines to make a popular Spanish tapa, Cigalas a la Plancha, or in…

Salmon Cakes

Salmon Cakes

I find it strange that I am uploading a Salmon cakes recipe before a crab cakes recipe, since the latter are far more popular. However, I’m a big believer in the ‘no waste’ food movement so this is the result of scrap from two other…

Tuna Salad Crostini

Tuna Salad Crostini

Tuna salad is one of my favorite lazy day lunches. It goes great in a sandwich, spread on toast, or eaten with crackers. Plus, it uses mainly pantry/refrigerator staples, like canned tuna, mayonnaise, onion, and spices. Scoop it on some sliced and toasted baguette and…

Asian Baked Mussels

Asian Baked Mussels

So I’ll start by saying this recipe is more Asian inspired than authentic to any one country, but these Asian baked mussels are still delicious. Mussels are one of my favorite seafood ingredients because they are so affordable. A kilo of mussels is just a…

Spicy Chorizo Potato Skins

Spicy Chorizo Potato Skins

Potato Skins are an American classic appetizer. They are unclassy, easy to make, unhealthy, and absolutely delicious. In fact, I pretty much made these spicy chorizo potato skins for two reasons. 1: Alona has never had them before and I wanted to cook her something…

Pommes Persillade

Pommes Persillade

Pommes Persillade is one of those dishes that sounds fancy, or at least overly complicated if you do not understand French. In fact, it’s really a simple potatoes dish that makes a great side to a main course. What’s wonderful about this dish is how…

Sausage And Red Pesto Tacos

Sausage And Red Pesto Tacos

So on my daily trip to the mega mart to buy 240 rolls of toilet paper (just kidding) I found this great red pesto cheese. Originally I was just going to slice it up with some salami and make a bit of charcuterie. However I…

Apple Goat Cheese Tart

Apple Goat Cheese Tart

Tarts, or tartlets, are some of my favorite things to make when I’m having guests over. They are easy to prepare, take very little time, and can be infinitely customized. One of the earliest recipes I put up on the site was my Pear and…
