General Tso’s Shrimp Bowls

Do you ever have those days that start out fine, then quickly snowball into an avalanche of bad? That was me today. First, I've got a bone to pick with Tuesdays.

Spicy Shrimp Burrito Bowls with Ranch Elotes

Rob and I had an adventure yesterday. We went to Guthrie, Oklahoma to see my friend in a play (A Few Good Men) and decided to make a whole day of it.

There was supposed to be a… Continue reading Shrimp & Scallop Spring Pasta

It's thrilling and nail-bitingly wonderful  watch. It's terrible and heart-achingly sad when your favorite team loses. I love it. I didn't manage to watch the Florida-Wisconsin game,… Continue reading Swordfish Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Gonzaga Smoked Trout Soba Noodle Bowl

Okay, I know. Smoked trout soba noodles are supposed to represent Gonzaga University? It's a stretch for the imagination, but hear me out. Gonzaga is located in Spokane, Washington. I didn't realize that until this past summer. Since Gonzaga is always so good at basketball, I always just assumed that it was located on the east… Continue reading Gonzaga Smoked Trout Soba Noodle Bowl
