Shrimp & Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

While the cruise to Mexico was our main honeymoon foray, we made sure to schedule some time to hang out in New Orleans, too.

Shrimp Scampi with Pesto Couscous

I think I have everything that I need for my weekend camping trip. Tent, tarp, food, water, cooler, air mattress, lanterns, pump, Cards Against Humanity... All good on the camping front.

I didn't realize that until this past summer.

Maryland Crab & Orzo Stuffed Tomatoes

I've had a torrid love affair with seafood ever since I was a little girl. Unfortunately, living my whole life in a land far away from the sea put a strain on that relationship. It's like a long-distance love affair that has its brilliant, passionate moments...but one that also has its unfulfilled, empty moments as… Continue reading Maryland Crab & Orzo Stuffed Tomatoes
