Shrimp, Chorizo and Corn Saffron Zucchini Pasta

August 7th, 2017 by

Updating yet another old recipe! Actually, when I read this recipe, it was barely in English. I was embarrassed! I’ve learned so much about recipe writing, especially after authoring two New York Times best-selling cookbooks (#humblebrag.) Not only are these photos snazzier, the recipe is now cleaner and ready for your cooking!

Sweet Potato Noodle Shrimp Puttanesca

January 23rd, 2014 by

You know, it’s tough naming these recipes. Sometimes, I just don’t know where to enter in the spiralized vegetable. Like here, should it be “Shrimp Puttanesca with Sweet Potato Noodles” or should it be “Shrimp Sweet Potato Noodle Puttanesca” or even, “Shrimp Puttanesca Sweet Potato Pasta” and just omit the “noodle” part completely? After a […]

Shrimp Scampi Zoodles with Bacon

January 9th, 2014 by

Whoever said “opposites attract” was definitely on to something. Case in point: Lu and I. Don’t get me wrong, Lu and I certainly have many similarities, but we do have our different habits and personality quirks – he’s super neat around the apartment and I’m, well, not so super neat. He usually has to remind me to […]

Teriyaki Zucchini “Fried” Noodles with Shrimp, Peppers, Onions and Broccoli

November 8th, 2013 by

Welcome to my Friday night. Today’s post is all about my guilt-free it’s-been-a-long-week–so-sit-on-your-couch-and-eat-this dinner. Man, I love Fridays. When I was in my early 20s, I was counting down the minutes to 5pm so that I could rush out to Forever 21 and buy an outfit for the night, before my friends started “pre-gaming.” Sigh, those were the […]

Shrimp, Bacon and Okra ‘Creole-Cajun’ Zucchini Pasta

September 8th, 2013 by

College football has begun, and I can’t help but miss tailgating at Wake Forest and September in the south. In North Carolina, it doesn’t start getting “cold” until November or December, really. That means that the weather is unbeatable during football games….. the season starts off with the sun warming your face and ends with a […]

Skinny Basil Caesar Cucumber Noodle Salad with Shrimp

August 30th, 2013 by

I never really liked Caesar salads. I think my oh-so-refined tastebuds at a young age detected and detested the anchovies. Yea, right. Honestly, when I became the conscious age where salads were an important part of my diet for weight management, I found out that Caesar dressing was one of the fattiest. As a general […]

Avocado-Basil Zucchini Noodles with Chile-Lime Shrimp & Corn

August 25th, 2013 by

It’s almost Labor Day, which means that you’re probably already vacationing on a mega-yacht sailing through St. Tropez or island-hopping in the Virgin Islands, but tell the hot cabana boy “just a second!”, because you’re gonna wanna see this. This zucchini noodle recipe has one of the largest ROIs – it’s SO easy and SO simple, […]

Inspiralized Dinner Party with HobokenGirl

July 18th, 2013 by

If you’ve been following my Twitter or Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been spending some time with Jen from HobokenGirl (a Hoboken blog geared towards girls). So, what’s up with that? Well, besides the fact that she’s a cool Jersey chick with an adorable French bulldog pup named Pierre, her audience happens to be perfect […]

Tomato Zucchini Spaghetti with Shrimp, Kale and Feta

June 30th, 2013 by

Welcome to Skinny Sundays! Let’s be honest with ourselves… the weekends usually get the best of us. One too many cocktails, some late night “snacks” after those cocktails, your “cheat day,” eating out at restaurants, not making time for exercise…. we’ve all been there (and hey, it’s fun!). Worry no more! On Skinny Sundays, I’ll be […]
