Shrimp Ceviche

Shrimp Ceviche

The sign claiming “Best Shrimp Ceviche in Quepos” enticed us into Kukula, a restaurant in a small town on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coast on the first day of our 10-day vacation. We tried ceviche at several other places during our stay, but we all agreed that Kukula’s made the […]

 
Marry Me Chicken

Marry Me Chicken

With a name like Marry Me Chicken, you know it’s got to be good. It’s rumored to have inspired marriage proposals. When I started making this for my husband, he promised to keep me around. The marriage proposal came decades before I found this recipe. When friends recently shared their […]

Watermelon keg

Watermelon Martinis

Without a doubt, the most frivolous item with a permanent place in my one-butt kitchen is a watermelon keg tapping kit. I use it to serve watermelon martinis, which are equal parts vanilla vodka, Watermelon Pucker Liqueur, and fresh watermelon juice.  If there are kids attending, I’ll put the martinis for […]

scallops with cajun succotash

Scallops with Cajun Succotash

Prior to my introduction to pan-seared scallops with Cajun succotash, I always thought succotash was simply a boring vegetable dish with two ingredients: corn and lima beans. To my delight, Cajun succotash is made with andouille sausage, onion, roasted red bell peppers and heavy cream, as well as the expected […]

 
cucumber salad

Cucumber Salad

My mother-in-law, Betty Zalmanek, is famous for her cucumber salad.  Her kids ask her to bring it to every family gathering. Whether or not you peel the cucumbers is a matter of personal preference, and perhaps what kind of cucumbers you use. English cucumbers — the ones that come wrapped […]

 
Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

At Gabriella’s Italian Grill and Pizzeria in Oklahoma City, I ordered chicken piccata served over roasted Brussels sprouts. It was one of the gluten-free options on the menu. I thought it was the best restaurant meal I had all year. The menu described “pan seared ‘Airline’ chicken breast sautéed with […]
