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.

Salmon Quesadillas with Apple Pico de Gallo

Ok. I know salmon and quesadilla aren't normally two words you would find together in the same sentence. I get it. It's strange. It's something....different.  Something odd. I had a vision, an intriguing vision, and I had to go for it. There's fish tacos and shrimp quesadillas in this world, so why can't there be… Continue reading Salmon Quesadillas with Apple Pico de Gallo
