  • Shrimp Tapas
    on Sep 13, 2015
    One of my favorite weekend "dinners" is Ann's (Thibeault's Table) Shrimp Tapas. It's a meal that comes together very quickly, especially if you purchase "easy peel shrimp", shrimp that is already headed and deveined. I picked up a loaf of French brea...

    on Jan 9, 2014
    Several of my fellow bloggers are doing, or have done, their top ten posts of 2013. Well, seeing how how 2013 was a slow year for All That Splatters, I thought I would come up with the all-time top ten posts of ATS (or what I thought were the top ten...
  • Pecan Pie
    on Jan 4, 2014 in Desserts Nuts Pies
    I'm not ready to start my resolution of healthy eating just yet. Pecan pie is my all-time favorite pie, and this recipe is my all-time favorite recipe for pecan pie. The filling is not syrupy but "stands up" on its own. It's super easy though super d...
  • Up For a Cup?
    on Nov 28, 2013
    I was contacted recently by Tamara, a representative from Puro coffee.  Never heard of them? Neither had I, but she was ready and willing to introduce this brand to me and my readers. A generous package of coffees, a mini French press and coffee...

  • Panzanella
    on Jul 4, 2012
    (I need to start out by saying the photos here will look much better if you take your glasses off. I'm not sure why I can't seem to take a picture anymore. Lack of practice has a lot to do with it, I'm sure. That and being distracted by the Big Bang...
  • Coconut Shrimp Curry
    on Mar 11, 2012 in Seafood
    Simple, tasty dishes are a favorite of mine these days. The days of wanting to try my hand at puff pastry from scratch and recipes utilizing every pot and pan in the kitchen, 42 ingredients, and 2-1/2 days of prep time no longer hold the same sheen t...
  • Kale, Cranberry & Quinoa Salad
    on Mar 4, 2012 in V.egetables Grains Salads
    In my efforts to eat healthier and explore healthier food options, I came across this recipe. I had heard of quinoa (say keen-wa) before, I'd even bought some that had been sitting in my pantry for quite a while, but I had never cooked it or eaten it...
  • Oaxaca Pizza
    on Feb 22, 2012 in Breads Tomatoes Cheese Pizza
    My Aunt Joanie is a good cook...no... a GREAT cook! She never steers me wrong when it comes to recipes. And she didn't this time, either. She told me about this simple pizza she makes every Friday night. And while it may be simple to make, it's far f...
  • Where have you been, young lady?!
    on Feb 9, 2012 in Conversation
    Good question. Wish I had a good answer...I did have some medical issues that affected my eating. Which affected my desire to cook. Hence, no posts for over 6 months. BUT things are looking up. And I'm resolved to get cooking again!I have done a litt...
  • Rigatoni with Broccoli, Garlic & Breadcrumbs
    on Jun 11, 2011 in Pasta Vegetables
    Whenever I visit New York City with my friends and family, we often visit our favorite Italian restaurant there - Carmine's.  The mid-town Manhattan location is always busy, especially with the many Broadway patrons before and after shows. ...
  • "Duffins"
    on Jun 10, 2011 in Breads
    My friend, Marysol, at Memories in the Baking, originally shared the recipe for these little tastes of heaven on an internet cooking forum we both occasionally visit.  "Dirt Bombs" are wonderful muffins dipped in melted butter (sounds good alrea...
  • Garlicky Chicken in Red Pepper Sauce
    on May 21, 2011 in Poultry
    This is another recipe I receive in an email from Fine Cooking in their "Make It Tonight" series. It looked really easy, sounded really delicious.  And it was.  Both easy and delicious.  The chicken was so tender and juicy.  The s...
  • Tamale Pie
    on May 19, 2011 in Meats
    The first cookbook I ever owned as a new bride was Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book.  I made lots and lots of the recipes contained in that cookbook, many of which remain favorites to this day.  The first few sections introduced me to...
  • Southwestern Turkey Wrap
    on May 16, 2011 in Poultry Lunches
    I'm trying to be more frugal these days by taking my lunch to work as often as I can.  Sometimes, that means leftovers if I've cooked something particularly delicious and plentiful (like the General Tso's Chicken of a couple of weeks ago). ...
  • General Tso's Chicken
    on Apr 24, 2011 in Poultry
     While I've seen this dish on the menu of many Chinese restaurants, I've often wondered who was General Tso?  Evidently he was a highly-respect soldier in the Hunan region... a region that appears to have never heard of this recipe.  N...
  • Pea & Shrimp Penne with Basil
    on Apr 5, 2011 in Seafood Pasta Vegetables
    I receive daily emails from Fine Cooking magazine's website highlighting a particular recipe, ingredient, technique, etc.  Sunday's recipe, Pea & Shrimp Penne with Basil, definitely appealed to me.  Shrimp, pasta, and basil are a few of...
  • Sweet Potato Oven Fries with Avocado Dip
    on Apr 3, 2011 in Vegetables Snacks
    I've noticed that a lot of hamburger/sandwich restaurants are offering sweet potato fries as an option to the traditional French fried potatoes  This trend has my vote - I love sweet potato fries.  In my humble opinion, they are much more f...
  • Shrimp & Snap Pea Salad with Ginger-Soy Vinaigrette
    on Mar 26, 2011 in Seafood Salads
    There is so much to like in this salad.  Quickly cooked tender shrimp, blanched-and-still-crunchy snap peas, juicy cubes of mango, and the Asian flavored dressing with soy, ginger, lime, and a slight pop of heat.  It's seriously good but oh...
  • Grilled Tuna with Pineapple Relish
    on Mar 20, 2011 in Seafood
    I'm making a concerted effort to try and eat healthier. Fish always seems to fit into the category of 'healthy living', so fish it is!  Tuna, to be exact.One of my favorite cookbooks containing wonderful seafood recipes is The Beach House Cookbo...
