Under The Sea Cupcakes

Now that all the little ones are back to school, I thought it would be appropriate to share this fun kid-friendly treat. Aren’t they adorable? I made them a few months ago for my girlfriend’s baby shower, which had an “Under the Sea” theme, and they were really a hit ....more

Jambalaya Pasta

Now that school is back in session, and fall sports and activities are underway, on weeknights it can be hard to find time time to prepare a proper dinner in the kitchen on those evenings when you have a million things going on. This quick Cajun-inspired pasta dish is just the ticket to get a delicious meal on the table fast, that the whole family will love. Kielbasa is sliced and sauteed with some garlic, onion, and green peppers ....more

Garlic Balsamic Crusted Pork Tenderloin

As summer officially winds down to a close, I’m trying to get as much time in on the grill as we can. Not that you can’t find me outside grilling in the middle of a hurricane, or a snowstorm (especially now that I have an awesome covered back deck!) – but there’s just something about the smell of the grill with a cocktail in hand on a summer evening. I know you guys have got to be tired of seeing pork tenderloin recipes here, but I just can’t get enough of them ....more

Wild Rice Pilaf

We love rice as a side dish.

Caribbean Pork Tenderloin

I’m always looking for new ideas for pork tenderloins. They are quick and easy to cook, lean, and adapt very well to any flavor profiles you throw at them. I thought this fun twist using flavors inspired by the Caribbean Islands would be perfect for the summertime, and I was right! ...more

Citrus-Apple Butter Glazed Shrimp

As I’ve mentioned before, in the summertime here on the Eastern Shore shrimp are often cheaper than chicken or pork. So, we like to make the most of them in the months that we can get them fresh. Needless to say I’m always looking for a new spin on them to try out in my kitchen ....more
