Poached Catfish

You guys…YOU GUYS…You have to make this right away! You know I’m not a big fish fan, and certainly I would’ve never thought myself at a catfish fan. That all changed one glorious sunny day when a friend brought me the most delicious fried fish I’ve ever had in my life. I asked what it was, and when they said catfish, I was in pure shock....more

Cous Cous with Roast Fennel and Mackerel

If I was one of those people, you know the ones, who bang on about superfoods and the like, I might say that this recipe was jam packed with them, but I won't.  I'll just say that this healthy combination of great tasting fresh food is fab, even if it does seem a bit weird.Preparation Time: 20 minutesCooking Time: 25 minutes...more

Fish on a Rampage

We have a 90 gallon aquarium in our bedroom. It's my husband's but I have grown attached to the fish.

Like I'm their mom. Alas, it's only because they know that weird blobby shape that creeps towards them once a day throws nummies at them. ...more

Fish and Chips

Fry Hard is definitely an appropriate title for this episode. I’m not sure how long it will take to get the fry smell out of my house, but it was totally worth it! We fried potatoes and fish a.k.a. Chips and Fish. I was also able to try for the first time my new V-slicer Mandolin. I’ll have a review later on my other blog here about it. I’m not a big fish eater and getting one that doesn’t taste like fish in the desert is sometimes a challenge. I also have to have fresh caught....more

There's more than just a little 'puttana' in this recipe for puttanesca

 So this is not the most sophistacated of dishes. In a way, it goes without saying, I mean the clue is in the name right?  The origins of the name of this sauce come from the Italian word puttana meaning (I apologize now to those of a sensitive nature), slut.  So, you can imagine what kind of sauce this is.  It doesn't follow the rules, it's not careful or up tight, it's  a kind of throw everything at it kind of meal.  It has spice and tang....more
