Shrimp Scampi with Linguine

Shrimp Scampi is very simple to make and pretty tasty too. I like to serve it with whole wheat linguine to up the ante in the nutrition department. Many people associate Shrimp Scampi with pasta but it’s actually a method of cooking shrimp and can also be served with crusty bread or just on its own. By adding the pasta to the juices before it’s completely cooked, the linguine soaks up some of the liquid and flavour so in my humble opinion, it completes the dish.

Chicken Fajita Soup

I’m really excited about this recipe. It was an idea that turned out better than I’d expected. Which is not always the case. Not even close. I’m a master at repurposing leftovers and I’m cheap so I can make a deli chicken cover 2 dinners and maybe even a sandwich! Chicken Fajita Soup checks off many boxes, including easy, healthy, inexpensive and you can make it as hot and spicy as you like. As an added bonus it’s also very tasty!

Beef Bourguignon

Hard to pronounce. Hard to spell. Takes forever to make. But this is good. Really good. This is a revised post. I was reading a book by Anthony Bourdain and he mentioned that this is one of his favourite dishes. So based on his comments, I modified the recipe and the result is outstanding. Making it at least a day in advance is the key to perfection.

Beef Noodle Pho

If you haven’t tried Pho, it’s a Vietnamese dish. It’s pronounced “fuh.” The broth is made with spices you may associate with sweet flavours like cinnamon and cloves, however it’s not sweet. But don’t worry, you can buy the broth ready made and it’s pretty good!

Overnight Breakfast

Overnight Breakfast is the perfect Christmas morning or New Year’s Day breakfast casserole. Or brunch if you partied into the wee hours of the morning. You make it the night before and bake it in the morning. Low maintenance! What’s even better about this is you can be totally creative in what ingredients to use. I’ve made it with leftover turkey and switched out the cheddar for Swiss and Brie. I’ve used stale croissants, made sweet versions with raisin bread….the possibilities are endless!
