Cardamom Orange Rice Pudding

Rice pudding was one of my Grandma’s favorite desserts, so I always love making it. It’s creamy and comforting and super simple to make. The cardamom adds a wonderful depth of flavor and the orange zest adds brightness. I used golden raisins, pistachios and shredded coconut as my add-ins, but any dried fruit or nuts Cardamom Orange Rice Pudding

Blue Cheese Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are a favorite snack in our household. They are so flavorful and it’s easy to make them in a variety of ways. Sometimes I’ll set up a deviled egg bar where friends can garnish their eggs with a variety of toppings like capers, sundried tomatoes, fresh herbs, smoked salmon, crumbled cheeses, etc. These Blue Cheese Deviled Eggs

Shrimp Creole

With the holidays behind us, I’m ready to incorporate some lighter meals into our weekly routine. This dish is on the table in less than 30 minutes, but tastes like it’s been stewing for hours. I served mine with white rice, but this would also be good with grits or zucchini noodles. Heat butter in Shrimp Creole

Chili Crisp Feta Dip

I love following food trends and I recently read about Chili Crisp which is a spicy oil-based condiment most commonly used in Chinese cuisine, made by infusing oil with dried red chiles, fried garlic, shallots and ginger. Combining it with cream cheese, salty feta and sweet honey helps to balance all the flavors to create the Chili Crisp Feta Dip
