Blackened Shrimp Nachos


We love nachos for dinner. On busy nights or nights no one really wants to cook it is some chips, cheese, onions, and a meat. Then we pile all the toppings we each like on top of our plates. Don’t like onions? Leave them off. Want extra hot sauce? Go for it! Verdict: These nachos…

Cod Fish Cakes


It is actually been kind of nice having all four of us home again for a bit. It took my mind a few minutes to wrap around the idea of what was happening but now I like it again. With his extra time my son has been writing his college essays. He wrote one last…

Spaghetti with Salmon and Dill Cream Sauce


We are continuing with the comfort food for dinners. This creamy flavorful dish has all the things we want right now in comfort food. Verdict: My family said this reminded them of grown-up tuna noodle casserole. It was more fancy and flavorful that regular tuna noodle casserole but still had that same taste to them.

Blackened Fish Sandwiches


My entire family has had a case of the blahs lately. No one wants to do anything. Cooking, cleaning, etc… are a chore right now. Usually they are a chore but for some reason right now it just seems worse. We are actually thinking about making a quick getaway with the family for a few…

Grilled Cajun Honey Salmon


We love fish and seafood but do not eat nearly enough of it. No other reason than being in Michigan other than lots of White Fish and Perch there are not a ton of fresh choices around us. We can get some okay cuts at the local grocery store but it is not the fresh…

Grilled Salmon with Garlic Marinade


I mentioned yesterday this is our summer of grilling and we are jumping right in. Summer just screams for grilled fish. It is such a light dish on hot summer days and grilling out means no heating up the kitchen and it adds lots of flavor to your dishes. Whether you put it on a…

Grilled Shrimp and Vegetables


Day 82 – So, are we all tired of making dinner every night yet? I know we are! We are trying to keep things simple, lots of grilling, because it seems the easiest thing to do right now. Let some meat marinate all day and then cook it for dinner. We never really went out…

Stuffed Cod and an Anniversary


Day 72: First today is Memorial Day. The day in the United States we honor the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. To those who served, are serving, and those who are no longer with us we say, “Thank you for your service.” Second happy anniversary to my…

Dynamite Shrimp with Spicy Sauce


Day 61:¬†As the headlines of meat production being slowed down have hit the news we have been working on eating out of our freezer as much as possible. Time to clean it out for summer fruits and veggies that will be coming in the next few months. In our area the price of meat has…

Best Salmon Patties


Day 38 – What is something that you miss from the shelter-in-place if you have it in your area? Mine is going to the grocery store. I love making al different kinds of meals and if I was missing something I could run up to the store (or send my daughter) for a quick one…

Beer Battered Fish Tacos


Day 25 – They say it takes 3 or 4 weeks to change habits. We have now been in shelter-in-place for 25 days. Have we changed any habits? I think so. We are a bit more patient with each other. If we snap we almost immediately take a step back and say, “I’m sorry.” We…

Cheesy Grits and Shrimp with Bacon


I honestly don’t think I have ever had grits in my entire life. If I did it was many, many years ago and they obviously didn’t make much of an impression on me. In a time of we need to stretch ourselves and our eating again we decided to try dishes we have never had…
