Sous Vide Shrimp Scampi

I’ve talked before about how I like cooking seafood sous vide style because it helps keep the food tender and still tasty. When I was visiting one of our special grocery stores I saw they had shrimp on sale. I wasn’t planning on getting any originally but decided to get them with the sale. But, this meant that I needed to have a recipe for them.

Last minute I changed my mind from making a recipe I had made before and instead tried this one. It was so good and makes shrimp scampi super easy. The shrimp tastes like lemon and garlic, but also has a strong shrimp flavor. AND it isn’t overcooked!

Lots of the same marinades/recipes for that since we like them and can only get them for part of the year.

With the title mentioning flavor you might see where this picture came from…

Triple Coconut Cake, Part 1

You might notice there haven’t been too many desserts lately. I’ve either been making the same old stuff, or having not great luck with new recipes. We’ve also been eating fewer desserts so I haven’t needed to make as many because they last longer. (We have also been buying tons of Oreos since it is an easy small treat post-dinner for the kids).

But here we are with a coconut cake.

Chiplet Adventures (part 1): Letter B Week

After our trip to Maryland, I started doing more activities with the Chiplet in mind. The Fudgelet is happy to do the same activities even if they are easy for him. He always manages to enjoy this sort of stuff regardless, so I figured by starting with the Fudgelet around, it would help model some good behavior for the Chiplet. This is why we did some of our activities like coloring more rice, etc. So, the very first day that the Fudgelet went to Kindergarten, “school” started for the Chiplet.
