Fried Crab on a Blustery Day

You all know how it is – the cold weather rolls in, and you wanna curl up on the couch under a blanket with something good to drink and yummy to eat.  At least I do.  In honor of the first week of blustery cold weather here in my little corner of Florida I’m making these awesome looking fried crab puffs.  If you like seafood (and I haven’t met any yet that I wouldn’t make nice with) then this is the recipe for you.  If you try it and like it let me know!

Pan-Roasted Salmon-and-Bread Salad

Okay, I have tried, and I have tried, but unless I drench a salad with tons of creamy dressing and fill it up with meat, I just don’t enjoy it.  If I do drench it with dressing and meat, that defeats the purpose of trying to eat healthier, and I may as well be eating pizza like I want to.  But now I’ve come across a salad that is both healthy (note the salmon - very good for you!) and tastes good too!  Check it out:

Looks yummy doesn’t it?  Give it a try and tell me what you think!

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Shells

What could be better than Monday morning italian?  Monday is pasta day around my house – don’t ask me why, I don’t usually have certain types of meals on certain days, but for a long time I just happened to eat some type of pasta for dinner on Monday night, and then I decided to make it into a habit and here we are!  Today I’m going to try these stuffed shells.  They work perfectly because they fit my Monday pasta requirement and my new vegetable with every dinner requirement!  Give them a try and see if they’re as good as they look.
