Green Garlic Risotto w/ Parmesan Crisps

Now that the new year has started, I’m sure many of you are trying to eat healthier. I have personally been trying to eat more vegetables in my meals. I recently came across this recipe on the Gourmet Traveler blog. It uses a huge amount of spinach, which was great for me since I have a giant Costco bag of spinach at the moment. On a less healthy note, the Parmesan crisps are to die for, but beware they are super addicting! I ate this with my Broiled Lemon and Garlic Shrimp.

Cream of Asparagus Soup

This recipe is awesome, but is kind of like my lobster recipes in the sense that I cannot afford to make it all of the time, since asparagus is so expensive! I was lucky enough to go to Costco with my Mom this week though (I have the best Mom in the world!), which meant large quantities of asparagus. This soup was a hit among my friends this week, when the weather was well below zero for a few days. It is really good if you serve it with garlic bread!

Lobster & Shrimp Thermidor

The second lobster dish that I cooked this week was Lobster Thermidor. This recipe took a bit longer than the Butter Poached Lobster & Shrimp recipe. I added shrimp to this recipe as well to add some extra substance to the meal, since we didn’t have very much lobster meat. I found this recipe on MyRecipes from Cooking Light, but tweaked it a little. It is a healthier version of a Lobster Thermidor recipe. If I could afford to buy lobster more often, I would cook these two recipes all the time!

Chicken Breast w/ Tangy Mustard Sauce

After spending a week away from the kitchen, I sort of lost my inspiration to cook. I surfed the web for recipes, read other people’s food blogs, and talked to people about food, but I just couldn’t seem to find any recipes that interested me. Hoping to change my mood, I turned to my secret obsession- sauces. I found one site with over 200 sauce recipes for chicken alone! I have found my inspiration once again and am excited to share my interesting new recipes!
