Baked Coconut Shrimp

baked coconut shrimp 007

I have something to admit. I haven't been going to the gym lately. Instead, there's this website called youtube where you can watch workouts and do them at home. One brilliant thing about doing this, is that you can workout in your bra and underwear. If you wore just that to the gym, you'd probably get kicked out. Jillian Michael's has been kicking my little booty. I'm also thinking about starting my own youtube channel. Might as well put my ipad to use other than using it to watch videos ...

Bang Bang Shrimp Rolls

Bang Bang Shrimp Rolls 011

I took my famous Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp recipe and turned it into a shrimp roll.  When you're craving a lobster roll use shrimp instead. Shrimp is much cheaper than Lobster is. I WISH I could eat lobster every week of my life and live in a mansion, with my own personal chef. That would grand wouldn't it? The shrimp is tossed in a spicy yogurt sauce with Sweet Chili and Sriracha sauce. The first time I had Bang Bang shrimp was when I ate at the Ground Round, but their version of Bang Bang ...

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce 011

Whenever I want to eat something healthy for dinner, I go for my go-to meal. Salmon and steamed broccoli. I ALWAYS have salmon in my freezer and that one green vegetable that looks like a little tree too. I'm always looking for different ways to flavor salmon and teriyaki is the way to go. Sure, you could use one of those store bought bottles of teriyaki marinade, but I prefer to make my own. You can cook the sauce in a small pan until the sauce becomes this thick syrupy consistency. I'm ...

Browned Butter and Lime Salmon

brown butter and lime salmon 011

Have you ever filleted a salmon or fresh fish before? I like to fish every now and then, but it can be quite the disgusting task. Fishing licenses are kind of expensive here and it's not really worth it if you're only going to go about 3 or 4 times a year. I don't know what's worse about fishing. Putting the worm on the hook or gutting the fish when it's ready to be cooked? If you're wearing gloves it wouldn't be that bad. Meh..... I'd rather go to a fish monger and get it myself. Reasons why ...

Rigatoni with Spicy Shrimp

penne alla shrimp 009

This pasta is so good, I could eat it the next three nights! The shrimp is sauteed in butter and olive oil and seasoned with paprika and crushed red pepper. The sauce is as simple as taking a jar of your favorite marinara sauce and adding a little heavy cream to it. I wasn't quite sure what to name this dish, cause I used two different recipes that I found and kind of made up the measurements of each of the ingredients. One title had the name Betsy in it, and penne wouldn't work because I used ...

Honey Walnut Shrimp Copy Cat

I love it how the Internet is exploding over what color a dress is lately. I saw gold and white on my monitor. Then again, since I am a graphic designer, I also wonder how many pictures of this dress is going around on the Internet and how many times it's been changed? Hmmmmmm.... Anyways.... I've been kind of bored at nights lately and need a hobby to do. So far, I've thought of joining a swim team and starting up my violin again. I had to go back to my childhood and think of things that I ...

  It's been a busy week. I've been working on my homework for my PHP class every night. There's three chapters for this homework assignment and all of the assignments take about 4 hours to do from each chapter. Its a lot of coding, but I've been learning a lot! On Wednesday night, was our anniversary dinner(been married for 3 years now). We went to Cork and Clever. It's this fancy pants restaurant in Fargo. Ben had steak and I had shrimp scampi.  Our meals came with 2 sides. I got a baked p ...
