Mediterranean Tuna Pasta with Artichokes

This recipe has been hiding out on the margins of my blog.  I’ve not made it in some time and I had forgotten how great this meal is.  It’s salty and sweet with the pancetta, tangy with the caperberries and lemon and crunchy with the pine nuts.  It has great mouth feel and taste so […]

Gluten Free Crab Cakes, Coleslaw, and Old Bay Potato Wedges

I love crab cakes but Sodium Acid Pyroposphates (SAPP) in canned crab does not love me.  This is what you find in canned crab like Phillip’s that is added to prevent the formation of struvite crystals.  Those crystals are harmless, they just look like ground glass and tend to freak people out.  So in order […]

Seafood Stir-fry On A Budget?

As we sat down to dinner last night my husband pointed out this was an expensive dinner.  He didn’t know my secret. Yes there were scallops, shrimp and lobster but I had not spent a fortune on them and the lobster had been in the freezer for months just waiting for the perfect recipe.  The […]
