The Los Angeles Times featured this recipe and we have to give two thumbs up! Here’s another grilling recipe for you to try this Memorial Day Weekend. By the way, have you thanked someone in the military today?

Recipe courtesy of the LA Times:

Total time: 25 minutes

 Servings: 2 to 4

 1/2 pound cleaned, peeled large tail-on shrimp

 Olive oil

 1 small clove garlic, pressed through a garlic press

 Salt, pepper

 3/4 pound tomatillos, each cut into six wedges (eight if the tomatillos are large)

 4 green onions

 1 small serrano chile (or more if you want turn up the heat this weekend!)

 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground cumin

 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano leaves

 Tortillas

 Preparation

1. Heat a grill over medium-high heat. In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with 1 tablespoon olive oil, the garlic, one-fourth teaspoon salt and a pinch of black pepper. Allow to marinate while the tomatillos, onions and chile are grilled.

 2. In another medium bowl, toss the tomatillo wedges with just enough olive oil to coat, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Grill the wedges until charred and crisp-tender, about 2 1/2 minutes on each side. Place them in a large bowl, and set aside in a warm place.

 3. Lightly brush the green onions and the serrano chile with a little olive oil. Grill until tender and charred on all sides, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside until cool enough to handle. Slice the onions crosswise into 2-inch pieces and add to the tomatillos. Halve the chile and remove the seeds, then chop and add to the tomatillos. Toss and season to taste with salt and pepper.

 4. Grill the shrimp just until cooked through (they will be opaque, firm and pink), 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side. Remove the shrimp from the grill and toss them in the bowl with the tomatillos along with the cumin and oregano. Serve with grilled tortillas.

Maple Cream Easter Eggs

by Femme Fraîche March 20, 2016

Maple Cream Easter EggsEvery year when I was a kid, I could count on two things in my Easter basket – marshmallow eggs and maple cream eggs. Each served different purposes. The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
