Madras Shrimp With Rice

​ Madras Shrimp is one of my favorite ways to cook shrimp. So flavorful, and you don’t even have to sauté the shrimp! It turns out to be a pretty easy dish to convert to a freezer meal, too. What a treat, to come home to a quick and easy freezer meal! A note about…

Killer Shrimp

I love the flavor of this broth! It’s robust and has a nice kick to it. Once you’re done with the broth, the rest of the dish takes only about five minutes. The broth can take two hours but is truly worth it. Most of that time it’s just simmering away so you can be…

Shrimp with Peas & Seasoned Rice

This delicious, paella-inspired dish is pure magic! Whether you cook it right away or freeze it for later, and whether you cook it on your stovetop or in your Instant Pot, the ease and speed with which you get dinner on the table will amaze your friends and family. On those days when you’re too…

Spicy Peanut Chicken With Rice

Neither Spiced Peanut Sheet Pan Chicken Supper nor Nutty Shrimp lends itself very well to a one-container freezer meal, so I needed to…

Kitchen Curry

Why “Kitchen” Curry? I named it after the reason I developed it: After thirty years, I’m renovating my kitchen. We live in an old house, so we already know that renovation projects never go as planned. There’s always something turning up that nobody anticipated. Long story short, I will be without a kitchen for at…
