Week 49: Shrimp Scampi with Homemade Linguine

Last week I said I was going to eat healthier, but that was before I got a pasta maker for Christmas! I have wanted this kitchen appliance for a while now, and I could barely wait 24 hours before ripping the box open and making this dish! While making pasta is not the easiest, this… Continue reading Week 49: Shrimp Scampi with Homemade Linguine

Week 48: Beef and Broccoli

I have read numerous times that is it so easy to overcook scallops and they can turn rubbery. Truthfully, overcooking might as well be my middle name. But, putting all fears aside and still living off… Continue reading Week 29: Scallops with a Corn Salad and Parmesan Risotto

Week 28: Fried Chicken Sandwhich

One of my most favorite foods is fried chicken. I have the biggest fear of butchering one of my favorite meals, but I figured it was time to attempt this difficult dish. I fried chicken wings in week 3 but there is a difference between crispy wings and that extra crispy restaurant quality chicken. Shockingly, I… Continue reading Week 28: Fried Chicken Sandwhich
