Camarones a la Diabla

I LOVE THIS RECIPE! Camarones a la Diabla is a true gem. If you’ve never had it, let me explain its glory.

Camarones a la Diabla, The Breakdown:

It is a Mexican dish that consists of two main components: a smokey red sauce with shrimp. Simple! A sauce is made. This sauce might remind you of an enchilada sauce. It’s red and flavorful and in this case, a little smoky. This sauce recipe makes quite a bit and part of me wanted to halve it but I actually ended up using it for three other dinners last week.

1st dinner: I made this dish you see pictured.
2nd dinner: I tossed it with roasted eggplant and vegetables and ate it with quinoa.
3rd dinner: I made this again.
4th dinner: Josh used it to braise some flank steak (using one of our favorite kitchen gadgets) AND then we put it in tacos for Friday taco night and it was boooomb.

Baked Coconut Shrimp with Spicy Honey Drizzle

Appetizers, Sides, Snacks

Coconut shrimp always reminds me of Outback Steakhouse.

And bloomin’ onion appetizers.

Teri takes the pretty pictures and Jenny makes and food styles all the recipes. They’re both super talented and make everything pretty and delicious. So when I saw this coconut shrimp recipe on their blog (I got a sneak peak a few weeks ago!), I knew I needed to make it…stat.

Shrimp Curry

New Years is approaching at lightening speed and for everyone that means coming up with a new lame New Years resolution, which will inevitably be broken or given up on by the third week in January. So in lieu of attempting to not be a total failure at the beginning of a new year, I’ve decided to set a resolution that I know I can’t screw up. Ready for it? My New Years resolution for 2010: Drink more water. That’s it. Drink more water. It’ll leave me with clearer skin, no more headaches due to dehydration, more energy, and a healthier body overall. Not too shabby right? I feel like I can take this on. I’ve even gone so far as to buy a cute polka dot canteen that I plan on toting around with me everywhere I go.
