Garlic Shrimp Cheesecake Puffs

Garlic Shrimp Cheesecake Puffs http://twocooksonepot.com

A few years ago I needed to whip up some last minute appetizers for Thanksgiving and in a burst of creativity and desperation I came up with these garlic shrimp cheesecake puffs. They were a big hit, so of course I promptly forgot about them. I’m not entirely certain that I even got to taste them, but vividly remember my brother-in-law raving about how good they were.

This is a salsa made with black beans, corn, lime juice and a bunch of other southwestern delightful ingredients.  Served with tortilla chips and maybe a little guacamole on the side you’ll have a hit on your hands. Oh and did I mention it’s fairly healthy as well?

I grew up in Minnesota and we occasionally had something that would require barbecue sauce however, now that I live in Texas I now understand the importance of this spicy, tangy sauce.

I am so excited today! Let me explain: as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t eat a lot of sugar. It’s really only at special occasions that I will indulge. It’s not that I don’t absolutely love sweets as I really do it’s that sugar wasn’t meant to be consumed in the amounts that we consume it today. It’s linked to so many illnesses… I promised I would not preach so I’ll stop there. So I just don’t eat much sugar and that has taken great self control trust me. Today because we love you we decided to feature a dessert for you to try. Yes, we are sending love your way! I can’t wait… Continue reading

Seafood has always been a big part of my life. Growing up it was almost always fried, so when I started to explore healthier versions of the things I love to eat I was often extremely disappointed in the compromise to flavor. I’m not disappointed in this dish. Continue reading

Easy Boeuf Bourguignon

I have made this Boeuf Bourguignon recipe on a number of occasions over the years and it is sublime. It’s easy and much faster than the original French recipe. However, it is still dark, rich, and wine based with a slow cook style. Slow cooking is very important, a simmer for three to four hours is key. Continue reading

Beet Juice Pickled Eggs

I don’t know if pickled eggs fell out of fashion, or if I just stopped noticing them, but I went from seeing them practically everywhere to not at all. Last week I picked up a few organic chioggia beets and knew just what I had to do. These beet juice pickled eggs are not only colorful, but the cayenne gives a nice little spark to each bite.
