Sizzling Shrimp


This shrimp dish is absolutely perfect. It's a simple preparation with minimal ingredients that is incredibly flavorful. Tender shrimp with just the tiniest hint of spice are bathed in a heavenly seafood broth and finished off with a spritz of fresh Italian parsley. The shrimp are delicious, but the real star here is the broth. Give me a fresh loaf of bread (or a spoon for that matter) and I could eat it all day.

Moroccan Lentil Soup


As I’ve mentioned before, soups are one of my favorite things to make when it’s cold outside. Apart from being hot and delicious, they’re hard to mess up and generally only involve a couple of dirty dishes. Plus they make a large number of servings that can be stored in the fridge for easy dinners or brown bag lunches. Also, soup is one of the easiest dishes to make both super healthy and tasty. I only wish I loved cold soups as much as I love hot ones, that way I could get my fix all year round. But alas, a big bowl of gazpacho just doesn’t do the trick.
