Easy Classic Chicken Salad

I have been so busy this month and I wanted a quick fix. The first thing that came to mind was chicken (my favorite thing to cook). I love Chicken Salad, but whenever I go to the grocery store, I can never find one that I like. They either have too much mayo or not enough. Sometimes they have very little flavor overall or the flavor just doesn’t taste right.

I was craving chicken salad the other day and wanted it right then and there! I had just gotten home after my workout at the gym and was not wanting to be in that kitchen longer than I needed to be. Continue reading

Cumin Pan-Seared Scallops

It was a Saturday night, and I had a couple of people joining me for dinner. I looked at the time and realized I was cutting it real close to the time they were to arrive. (Sounds like the start of a story right? 😉

I wanted to be adventurous and make a scallop dish that wasn’t going to take too long and not be very difficult. Scallops, when bought fresh from the supermarket or deli, do not take very long to cook. If you are baking them, about 10 minutes. If pan-seared, then maybe about 2-3 per side.

Tom Rim (Vietnamese Caramelized Shrimp)

Shrimp… I would have never thought in a million years I would enjoy it. The texture of shrimp doesn’t settle well with me. I realized how wrong I was after having this dish!! Maybe I had a bad batch, who knows!

Tom Rim, Vietnamese Caramelized Shrimp, looked so appetizing, I had to try it for myself.  I did my digging and found a few recipes online. Read each one and went at it!

Roasted Garlic Cappa Santa

I was walking through the grocery store and wanted to make some type of seafood. I was thinking either Halibut or Salmon, but then I saw scallops!

Scallops are very delectable and low in both calories and fat. Most people avoid shellfish because they are generally high in cholesterol. They are a good source of potassium (cardiovascular health), magnesium (blood pressure), and phosphorus (important for strong teeth and bones).
