Almond-Crusted Sea Bass

Almond-Crusted Sea Bass

I love fish. And tasty yummy, savory coatings on my fish. Like this salmon and this tilapia. So good. So I’ve been hard at work (I mean, eating, really) trying to find new low-carb fish recipes. Instead of using panko, flour or [...]

Lemon-Herb Tilapia

Lemon-Herb Tilapia

I’m writing this post on my phone as I sit on the couch feeding baby Hunter for his bedtime feeding. Dustin is at the gym, working out with his brother. He should be home in about an hour. It’s 8:27pm. The girls are in their bedroom, playing. They are supposed to be in their beds, […]

Kung Pao Scallops

Kung Pao Scallops

I wanted to share this yummy dinner I have made a few times. I don’t usually cook with scallops for some reason, even though they are super easy and fast to prepare. And this recipe is no exception. I love this [...]

ASPC TV Episode 2

ASPC TV Episode 2

The day has come.  Lacey Baier is officially on video. Dustin finally succeeded in dragging me out of my comfort zone and getting me in FRONT of the camera.  Sometimes, I still can't believe it. However, like most things in life, I've found pushing myself to grow and to learn new things has been very [...]

Shrimp and Grits

LOVE me some Shrimp and Grits! Not only is this simple dish amazingly yummy and robust with flavor, it’s also super easy to make. The entire meal can be made in about 30 minutes which makes it a no-brainer for us when we have shrimp on hand. And we intentionally have shrimp on hand.

Southern Fried Catfish

Who's up for a fish fry?? Now, you know me -- I'm a Southern California girl, born and raised -- but Dustin spent many of his formative years in Dallas, Texas.  To say this Texas upbringing formed his appetite for Southern food would be an understatement.  The man certainly enjoys his fried okra, beef brisket, [...]

Pad Thai with Shrimp

I recently asked on Facebook and Twitter what types of recipes you would like to see on my blog and the two most requested recipes were bread and Thai food. Which brings me to this post.  As you may have noticed, I don't make much Thai food.  Um...pretty much none at all. This is weird, [...]

Salmon Teriyaki

As promised, here is my Salmon Teriyaki post! I love sushi...well, the "softie" sushi like rolls and small bits of raw fish on lots of rice and other tasty goodies.  My favorites are the California roll, Tempura Shrimp roll and Dragon Roll, to give you an idea.  Man, those all sound good right about now! [...]

Tuna Melt

In order to explain just how tasty these tuna melts are, I need to give you some background. I need to explain how Dustin hates tuna.  Well, canned tuna, rather. And, when I say, "hates," I mean: will practically vomit if he smells it. Now, I'm not a huge proponent of canned tuna, per say, [...]

Panko-Crusted Tilapia

As I sit here typing, I wonder why on earth I haven't yet shared this Panko-Crusted Tilapia since it is one of my absolute favorite fish recipes. This Panko-Crusted Tilapia is super tasty.  It has a combination of fresh lemon, garlic, ginger and other fragrant spices, including paprika and crushed red pepper, that also gives [...]
