A Bit Of Steak

  A good steak is an easy go-to dish during the week as it’s quick to prepare and can be paired with any sides such as onion mashed potatoes and a veggie dish of choice. I simply season my steaks with salt, coarse black pepper and onion powder on each side and it is good…

A Bit Of Layers

    The Easter fun is done and I hope treated everyone well. It’s been a while since my last post; I was so wrapped up in eating and creating that I forgot about posting! This dish was a breeze to make and a one pot wonder which is one of my favorite ways to…

A Bit Of Scallops

Though scallops are not native to Louisiana, that certainly does not diminish my love for them. This dish came out of my need to use the kale I picked up from the farmers market last weekend; the other ingredients were items I had on hand. This is a quick and easy dish that takes 30…

A Bit Of Tacos

Fish tacos are a wonderfully easy dish that can be made many ways which is perfect to try and try again as a go-to option during the Lent season. These tacos featured white fish from the farmers market, fresh spicy guacamole, pico de gallo and picked veggies. I don’t have to guess whether they were…

A Bit Of Catfish

This week has been all about 30- minute meals. I am a huge fan of one-pot or one-pan wonders with an easy clean up. This is a versatile dish where both the protein and veggies can be changed with preferences. I used catfish as the protein in this dish but you can also use chicken or…

A Bit of Louisiana

To kickoff the Lent season, I have to start with my take on a Louisiana classic, Shrimp and Grits. This is a warm and inviting dish that can be made lots of ways. It was perfect and quick after my intense kickboxing class and certainly an easy dish to prepare after work on Friday. If…

A Bit Of Winter

This post is dedicated to all of my friends who were part of the many dinners my brother and I hosted during college. Some of my favorite memories are of friends telling me what they “don’t eat” though they’ve never tried it and getting them to try something new by incorporating it into something more…

A Bit Of Filleting

I went back for round two with the flounder since my last experience was so delightful. I’ve never filleted a fish and I now understand and praise the efforts of the local fisherman who do this daily. While I am proud of my efforts and the outcome, let me just say, that was work—which is…

A Bit Of Chili

I decided it was time for some chili and grilled cheese to ward of the crummy, rainy weather. I love dishes like these that you can top anyway you’d like and it’s fun for everyone to make it their own. This is one of the best meals to eat leftovers of because the flavor just…

A Bit Of Preparation

A lot of my friends know I often bring my lunch to work; it’s cost effective and I know exactly what’s in it. I often use part of my weekend to prep meals for the week, both lunch and dinner. I made a simple chicken salad that was great for lunch today. One can makes enough for…
