Shrimp Pasta with Tomatoes, Lemon and Spinach

I wish I could replace the inside of my mouth with this. AND, I’m just now figuring something out. I think angel hair pasta might be my favorite pasta in the entire world, including Vermont.

Paprika Shrimp Over Creamy Egg Noodles

Yoooooou’re heeeere, there’s NOTHING I FEEEEAAAAR. That was the sound of my face at the end of Titanic (in 3D!) last night as the lights came up in the theater and tears bucketed from my eye sockets and my husband leapt from his seat and ran out of the room as fast as he could. […]

The Weidner Steak Marinade

DING DONG. The doorbell rings. The sun has set. I’m in egg nog-stained yoga pants and my sock bun doth saggeth. Gripping the 14 heart attacks scrambling to escape my chest bone, I walk over to the kitchen window and peek out to see a UPS truck zipping away, leaving me with a gigantic cardboard […]

Angel Hair with Chicken Sausages, Tomatoes and Kale

The secret is in the lemon. But before you scroll down looking for the beauty shot of the lemon, let me break it to you, it’s not there. You see, I didn’t even think about adding lemon juice when I was making this dish and then all of a sudden as I was about to […]
