Shrimp Enchiladas with Hatch Chile Sauce

hatch chile enchiladas

I got some free roasted Hatch chiles in the mail from the Hatch Chile Store in New Mexico. I’d never even seen red Hatch chiles before but they immediately made me think of enchilada sauce. After blending the sauce, I tasted it and it reminded me — a little too much — of roasted red […]

Buffalo Shrimp – Hooters Style

Buffalo Shrimp – Hooters Style

Buffalo Shrimp Video (scroll down for printable recipe) As a follow-up to my Breastaurant review video, here is a delicious homemade Buffalo shrimp recipe, a la Hooters. Between you and me (and everyone else on the planet) these are at least a smidge better than Hooters, if only because I use large shrimp and my […]

Pad Thai

Pad Thai

The first time I had pad Thai was in Boston. I’ve mentioned before that I wasn’t a terribly cosmopolitan eater before moving to Boston, so many of my firsts happened there: bialys, mooshoo pancakes, mango lassi, and pad Thai.

Filet-O-Fish Copycat

Filet O Fish Recipe Video (scroll down for recipe card) I say “copycat” but really, this version is much tastier than the McDonald’s Filet O Fish sandwich, and more filling with less calories. I think you’ll agree that this isn’t the first time a copycat recipe turned out better than the original. Though I don’t […]

Fish Taco Wraps

fish lettuce wrap recipe

Immediately after our juice cleanse, I wanted to eat a lot of food like jalapeño cheeseburgers and tacos and pot pie and nachos and cake. But I had a feeling that three days on a juice (and one carrot) diet might prevent me from fully enjoying such delicacies as those. So I settled on baked fish […]

Linguine with Clam Sauce

linguine with clam sauce

Linguine with calm sauce is a classic Italian Christmas recipe. This one I got from my friend Mel. Mel is fantastic and feisty and beautiful and has written two best-selling cookbooks (WellFed and WellFed 2) and writes on her extremely popular blog, TheClothesMakeTheGirl, and she is half Italian and half Lebanese and therefore grew up […]
