Asparagus…The Smelly Truth




So I L-O-V-E Asparagus. Roasted is THEE BEST. So I purchased A BUNCH. I used some for a Shrimp Asparagus White Cheese Pizza as in my previous post.


I wrapped some in pastry and brushed with Olive Oil & Rosemary and baked. Then I  came across this video on the Internet……

Not to be graphic but I’ve experienced this. My urine really smelled. Asparagus tastes so great I will endure this for the taste but not as often as I like to.

There you have it…THE SMELLY TRUTH



Shrimp & Asparagus White Cheese Pizza




I ran across this recipe for Asparagus White  Cheese Pizza

I changed it a little. It had a dough recipe but opted for store bought. I roasted the Asparagus a little. I tossed it with olive oil, salt & pepper. Roasted for 7 minutes.

Roasted Asparagus

I brought some Creme Fraiche and added minced garlic and set it aside to deal with the store bought dough.



I shaped the dough into a square and brushed it with olive oil & basil. I spread the mixture on the dough, added parmesan cheese, mozzarella & topped with the Asparagus


I let it cook longer than I should have but it was so DELISH…I added the shrimp







Shrimp Taco Bowls



I am a SOFT TACO kind of girl. The thing I hate about hard tacos is it falling apart when you bite them and the insides get all on you, the table, the plate or all the above. I saw this recipe on how to create TAO BOWLS…..


They are created with corn tortillas. I was like WHAT? HOW? I followed the recipe….

Spritz each tortilla with water. I suggest doing it 3 at a time. I placed them on a plate and microwaved them for 30-45 seconds depending on the power of your microwave. This make them pliable.

tbpicI place a muffin pan upside down and spray with cooking spray. I then place the tortillas like so in above picture and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

THIS is the outcome. The piece de resistance.

Here are MY FILLINGS. I didn’t have any black beans on hand and didn’t feel like going out to get any so I just used what I had Lettuce, Corn, Shrimp, Salsa & Sour Cream

We Have Failed Our Daughter

This story really broke my heart. I pray for this little girl and all children


Hey Guys today I saw something on Facebook and felt compelled to touch on this topic.
Relish a Rudd…. I believe I may have saw her picture on Facebook before as a missing child but can’t remember for sure. I don’t believe I saw her story on television as I do not watch the news and I damn sure never saw an Amber Alert about her case.

So I saw this on my Facebook timeline and clicked on it to read the story and when I read this I was enraged. The common question they keep asking is Who Failed Relisha Rudd?

For those of you who do not know the full story or has never heard this case click the link: http: //

Now as I take a deep breath I’ll try to explain how I feel. For starters this whole family seems bizarre to me and unfortunately…

Curry Chicken Salad

Chicken Thighs Seasoned

Soooo I was speaking to my daughter and she asked “what are you doing?” and my response was making Curry Chicken Salad. Can I tell you she made a face? LOL She said “I’d rather have my curry chicken with white rice”. LOL. Once upon a time I would of said the same thing myself. My palette loves to try new things depending on the ingredients.


So I seasoned the chicken thighs with sea salt, pepper and curry. I chopped up some parsley that I had and didn’t want it to go bad. I was going to grill them but opted out and put them in the oven on broil. I was careful not to overcook them and ruin it.


I chopped up a green apple, added fresh corn, craisins and mayo. Add how much of each you want. Taste as you go. YOU will know. This is how I make regular chicken salad and did not stray from my recipe. I thought about adding some walnuts but decided not to. Curry is spicy and can be really spicy depending on how much you add. You control the heat.
