Spicy Shrimp Wontons

Spicy Shrimp Wontons
This past weekend my friend Morgan and I did a whole night of Marion’s Kitchen recipes, including her spicy shrimp wontons. Morgan and I met on Instagram two years ago, and I am blessed to call her my friend.  We are foodie friends through and through and we miss dining in Chicago, so we decided to get together and cook some recipes together.  Marion’s Kitchen...

Spicy Peanut Noodles with Shrimp

Spicy Peanut Noodles with Shrimp
My brother loves peanut butter and  I thought of him the whole time I made this spicy peanut noodles with shrimp.  If you were to ask my brother what his favorite food is, it wouldn’t be tacos or pizza.  It would be peanut butter!   Not sure he would eat it with the shrimp, or sugar snap peas for that matter, but hey, I thought about...

Crispy Shrimp

Crispy Shrimp
Is there anything better than crispy shrimp? The other day I made these crispy shrimp and I basically want to put them on my menu each week. I used regular frozen shrimp from @marianos – just $6.99 a bag, but I swear they tasted just like lobster! The recipe is so simple – my first thought was to deep fry, but I know not everyone...

My only decision to help myself from making all...

Pad Thai Salad

Pad Thai Salad
I have a new to me product that I need to share.  Natural Heaven hearts of palm . . . pasta!   First, one of the number one question I got when I posted this on Instagram was “Biz, does it taste like pasta?”  Well, the answer is no – because it’s hearts of palm.  It absorbs the flavors of the dish.  I happen to love...

Shrimp Spring Rolls

Shrimp Spring Rolls
Shrimp spring rolls are my favorite.  As much as I like to think that I am a pretty good cook, and have definitely gotten better over the years.  Visual learning is the best way for me to learn and I can watch a few YouTube videos and get the gist of the recipe. Spring rolls, however, have never worked for me.  The wrappers tore, or...
