Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

As I’m finishing up the second week of my second year of pharmacy school, my free time is disappearing almost exponentially. I figured I might as well squeeze in one last post before I’m completely overwhelmed.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage

So lets talk gnocchi. I’ve had a love for gnocchi for a long time, and I buy store bought to use in recipes somewhat frequently.

This sweet potato gnocchi recipe is my favorite… Continue reading Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage

Today I’m sharing my favorite way to fix salmon. The recipe is one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s, and… Continue reading Sriracha Lime Salmon

Crock Pot Orange and Asian-Spiced Goose

It’s pretty awesome having a significant other that hunts. Okay, it’s really awesome. I love having access to unique meats (I tried dove and antelope for the first time last year!), and I’ve especially been enjoying goose this year. I pieced together this recipe from a few I found for duck and adapted it for… Continue reading Crock Pot Orange and Asian-Spiced Goose
