Coconut Shrimp

"Something Smells Fishy"

This is my sisters favorite dish. Actually, let me take that back, this was my sisters favorite dish before she suddenly developed an allergic reaction to shrimp in her 20’s. After years of sampling coconut shrimp from every single restaurant we have ever been to that sells it, her heart sinks because she can no longer eat it. She was indeed the coconut shrimp queen. This post is in dedication to her former self, I pray she does not suddenly develop allergies to lobster, because then she would really be devastated.

Sweet chili garlic lobster pops

"Something Smells Fishy"

This is a pretty great way to cook lobster. garlic, sweet, and spicy, are a match made in foodie heaven. And for anyone who loves lobster, this is a really easy way to make it in the kitchen not requiring a grill or any fancy equipment. Not to mention turning it into a “pop” will make it the star of your next party.

Foil roast curry conch with pumpkin and okra

"Something Smells Fishy"

This was a simple and easy dish. I only had to get one pot dirty, and in all fairness if I didn’t use any curry powder, I wouldn’t have made a mess of any pots at all. Seasoned conch, tossed with pumpkin, okra and spices wrapped in foil and cooked until tender.

Steamed mussels in a garlic tomato wine sauce

"Something Smells Fishy"

This was a recipe I made a while back for my insta stories and decided I would remake it for the blog. If it were up to me my seafood month would have nothing more than fish and shrimp recipes. But because I know there is so much more under the sea, I try my best to produce recipes that contain all types of distinct species. So, to kick off March, we start with some mussels.

Regular degular shmegular Potato salad

Brunch knows best

Who wants potato salad? That’s the line my sister says in a family home video we have. She was walking around with a fork full taunting me as I set the table. It was a Sunday dinner tradition. My mother used to throw down every Sunday. She is the reason my sister is absolutely obsessed with potato salad. So while I am setting the table (by climbing on top of it) my sister would taste the potato salad. No Sunday dinner, potluck, bbq or brunch is complete without it.

Baked mac n cheese steak

Brunch knows best

Steak, onions and peppers are another match made in heaven. Especially when cheese is added. I have a recipe for a cheese steak scallion pancake wrap and some simple cheese steak sliders already on the blog. But one can never have enough cheese steak. This time cheese steaks, meet macaroni and cheese.

Epic spatchcock fried chicken

Brunch knows best

I have reached another level of fried chicken greatness. As you all know, if you have been following me for a while, fried chicken is not my thing. I always make it, and it tastes good, but to me there is always room to grow. Today I went up 5 more levels. This fried chicken was an absolute 8.99 out of 10. And I say 8.99 only because I burnt it a bit.

Blueberry Lemonade Mimosa

Brunch knows best

Probably the simplest cocktail ever, and here I am about to over complicate everything in the name of flavor. A mimosa is nothing more than a one to one ratio of orange juice and champagne. To be honest, it can be any citrus juice mixed with the champagne. Another wonderful way to sneak in wine masqued under the guise of vitamin C.

Smoked salmon spread

Brunch knows best

Can it be a brunch without a smoked salmon spread? No I think not.  There are some foods that just scream brunch; mimosas, chicken n waffles and smoked salmon spread or dip, call it what you want. This recipe is incredibly easy to make, and most of all delicious.

Best breakfast pizza ever!

Brunch knows best

Brunch, the most epic combination of breakfast and lunch. And what’s more fitting for brunch, than a pizza with bacon and eggs? I adore breakfast and it goes without saying that brunch is up there on my list. Lately, I have been on a pizza high, I don’t know why, but I have just been making all kinds of pizzas. After the success of the last pizza I decided that the blog is most definitely in need of a breakfast pizza.
