Recipe: Linguine with Shrimp & Vegetables

It’s been a week since I’ve posted anything.  Forgive me.

I’ve been eating a lot of shrimp lately. So, why not post a recipe that has shrimp in it?!  In Ellie Krieger’s The Food You Crave, she mentions that this is a perfect meal to celebrate Spring.  Well, we’re about three weeks early, but I’m perfectly okay with that.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Meet my hibiscus plant, Eden - still blooming after 5 years <3

Since me and my boyfriend are going to the big apple in 2 weeks for our 5 year anniversary, we decided to stay in, cook, and have a movie marathon.  I’ve been craving a burger, so I made Hackney’s Inside-Out Burger.  I’ve made these before and they were a big hit.

Recipe: Filipino Kare Kare

After reading this post in my Google Reader, I started to crave it.   It truly is my Filipino comfort food.  Luckily for me, my mother emails me and asks me if I want to have dinner at my parents’ house this weekend.  Um, hell yes!  Of course I ask her for the recipe, and she starts whining.

Oh yeah!  I forgot to tell you…I sent her a link to my blog this past this week and at first she was happy.  The next day? Not so much.  She said, “Just look up Filipino recipes online!  I don’t measure, it’s all in my head!”  And after an hour of bickering, she says, “Fine!”  Haha.  Love you, Mom.

I got this particular recipe from the recipe book that came with the Bullet Express Trio my mom got me this past Christmas.  You don’t necessarily need the Trio to make this dish, btw.

Restaurants Weeks

Yes, weeks.  Plural, baby!

Over the past two weeks, I’ve gone to 4 restaurants for Virginia Beach & Norfolk’s restaurant week(s).  Not as many as I would have liked, but my wallet (& waistline) has already threatened to break up with me, so I didn’t want to push it.
