Blackened Fish*

Ok, this is such a great meal for a weeknight when you want something different from the same old chicken. Blackened fish has so much flavor! So what you want to do first is heat up a saucepan or grilled to high heat!!! I mean, smoking hot! Take the fish and pat that sucker dry. Once dry put salt, pepper, and the blackening seasoning to coat all the fish, make sure you pat it all down so it sticks. When you’re ready, put the butter on there and...

Mama’s Spaghetti and Meatballs*

Ok, this is super easy, don’t get scared with all the ingredients! In a large pot over medium high heat, add the olive oil and let get nice and hot! Once the oil is hot, go ahead and add the chopped onions and let cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Once those are translucent, add the garlic and cook until you can really smell it.. about 1 minutes. Once the garlic is cooked, add the can tomatoes, rosemary, sugar, parmesan, a...

Garlic Lobster*

This is sooo good and trust me guys, if you ever get to cook lobster, use this recipe!!! Ok, first thing you need to do is preheat your oven to 350*F. To cut the lobsters, use sharp kitchen scissors and make an incision. Using a sharp knife, cut through the lobster tail, all the way through but don’t cut into the tail!! Leave that pretty 🙂 Put the lobster tails on a broiler pan that is lined with aluminum foil so it’s easy clean up! Ok, in a...

Salmon Patties*

First thing is first ladies, preheat the oil over medium high in a large skillet! Put just enough oil in the pan to coat the bottom by about a centimeter or so. In a separate bowl put the flaked salmon with out the gross juices, skin, and bones. To the cleaned salmon add the cup of mashed potatoes, chopped onion, parsley, lemon, eggs, and the seasonings. Mix together with hands and form into patties the size of hamburgers. On a plate, whip togeth...

Caprese salad*

Ok, this is such a perfect lunch in my opinion! What you want to do is slice the tomatoes pretty thin, and do the same with the mozzarella. On a plate, layer the tomato and mozzarella and then put the thinly sliced basil on top. Drizzle with the olive oil and the balsamic and put some good sea salt (to taste!) and some freshly ground pepper! YUM!...

Grilled ham and cheese sandwiches

Spread 4 of the slices with some of the softened butter, only use half of the butter because you’ll need the rest later! Turn over and spread all 8 sides of the bread with a little butter. Place a slice or 2 of ham on 4 slices of bread and top with a 1/4 sliced gruyere cheese. Cover the top with the remaining 4 bread slices....

Texas burgers*

This burger is SO amazing and full of flavor. Thanks to Lou for this recipe! First thing you want to do is preheat your grill to medium heat. In a large bowl, combine beef, jalapenos, onion, cheddar, worcestershire, bacon, and salt and pepper. Mix together, with hands of course, and form into big pattys. Form into a ball with your hands, slapping that sucker trying to get it as tight as you can. Put a little salt and pepper on th...
