Basic Butter Sauce


I was making steamed broccoli and cauliflower as a side dish and would usually just toss it with a couple pats of butter. OK maybe more than that :)

Then I thought... there must be a recipe for a basic butter sauce that wasn't just melted butter with flavorings. And sure enough - there was!  I found this recipe on food.com that was recommended for pasta or veggies.

Shrimp with Mustard Lime Dipping Sauce

My friend Craig whom is an excellent cook made this fabulous shrimp for a picnic. I couldn't stop eating them. The shrimp were flavored perfectly and I could have eaten them just as they were, but the dipping sauce was a perfect match. They were possibly the best cold shrimp appetizer I have ever had.

I was introduced to collard greens in North Carolina at the Midnight Diner which has become a have to - Nothing fancy - Just down home southern cooking.  My husband enjoyed the collard greens so much  that he asked me to recreate it.

Shrimp & Dill Pasta Salad

I found this recipe about a year ago on foodiecrush and discovered that I misread the recipe. It called for sweet pickles and I must have had dill pickles on my mind, because that's how I made it and I loved it.  The dill pickles and juice add a nice "humm?" flavor that is surprisingly subtle.

BCD Soon Tofu Soup Starter

Do you ever crave Korean Soon Tofu Soup?  I most certainly DO!!!

I was introduced to BCD Tofu House a couple of years ago when visiting LA (thanks Dustin) and though I have eaten many soon tofu soups since. I have not had one as good as BCD.

BCD in my opinion makes the best or at least the best Soon Tofu Soup that I have ever had. Custardy tofu in a bubbling stone pot with beef and seafood. This simple bowl of soup was so memorable that we all went back 2 nights in a row. Truth be told, we would have gone back for round three if we didn't have to head back home. It left such a memorable impression that I've been craving it ever since and that was back in the summer of 2013.
