Potato Crab Devils

I have a friend who can’t stand mushrooms.. Needed to come up with an alternative to crab stuffed mushrooms, thus, the stuffed crab potato was born.

Tapioca Coco Bombs

This recipe is the prefect finger food that no one can stop eating! Recreated from a version of what my mom cooked when I was growing up!

Mushroom honey crostini bites

Mushroom honey crostini bites

This is a recipe I created. It’s great as an appetizer to wow your guests, just as a snack or a side to dinner. Pan roasted mushrooms meet lovely burrata cheese and amber honey. You cannot lose.

Red Curry Steamer Clams

Red Curry Steamer Clams

For this recipe I harvested manila clams right off the beaches of the Puget Sound in Washington State. Lucky for me I only have to drive a short distance to get these babies. However, any steamer clams will suffice. I’ve eaten more of these than I can even recall, but most of them have been cooked in the typical white wine and butter broth. I had something similar to this off a menu at some fancy restaurant in Seattle many years ago that is no longer open and I’ve never seen anything quite like it anywhere else, so I decided to make my own.

Banana Bread Bars are a great variation on a favorite breakfast meal in our home. Similar to banana bread with a cream cheese frosting.

Baby Mexican Street Corn

Baby Mexican Street Corn

Love elote but can’t eat it gracefully? Here’s a version for dates, parties, and fancy clothes that shouldn’t get messy but should still get all the fun.

The corn skewers can be roasted, broiled or grilled before getting all dressed up. Use Polar baby corn or another brand that you know doesn’t smell like a barnyard, or even fresh if you can get it!
