Today’s recipe will have you craving seafood! Shrimp is rich in protein, and low in calories too. It also has an impressive assortment of nutrients. Why not whip up this seafood pasta dish for dinner tonight?
BurgerFi Corporate Executive Chef Paul Griffin shares 5 tips for making the best burgers at home:
- Put what would traditionally be a side on your burger – i.e. fried egg, hash browns, bacon
- Spice up condiments- add garlic, jalapenos or Sriracha for that extra kick
- Cheeses make all the difference. It’s OK if you like to play it safe with a standard American slice, but switching out this option with cheeses such as Gouda, Blue Cheese and Brie can add bursts of flavor to your creation
- Grill up veggies, such as mushrooms and peppers, to give your burger an extra fire grilled taste
- Looking to lose the bun? Wrap burgers in hand-cut lettuce and load burger with grilled veggies for a healthier alternative

An Outdoor movie night can be so much fun, especially on those warm breezy summer evenings. Come on in and see how we celebrated Zootopia with this movie night!
This is a partnered post with Walt Disney Studios. All opinions are my own.
Disney’s ZOOTOPIA broke all kinds of records, including becoming the 4th animated film to cross the 1 billion dollar milestone. Amazing, right?! We were first introduced to ZooTopia during an Orlando press junket where the family and I saw an early movie screening. I also had the pleasure of interviewing Jason Bateman who voices the clever fox, Nick Wilde, in the film. Jason is just as funny in person, and charming too!
I was thrilled when Disney reached back out – this time to host an outdoor movie night. It’s something my husband and I have always thought of investing in, and here was our chance! ZooTopia’s Blu-Ray & DVD release just so happened to coincide with the beginning of summer. Those clever Disney folks! 😉 So, to kick off summer we invited friends over to enjoy a family favorite – ZooTopia under the stars!

When I was pregnant with my first son I was lucky enough to have what I would call “normal” pregnancy cravings. I didn’t want pickles and ice cream or anything out of the ordinary. Instead, I craved banana everything! Since I was feeling nostalgic, I decided to make this amazing Banana Chocolate Chip Bread to share with all of you. I’ve included a fast-motion video of the recipe too!
Prior to being pregnant, I liked bananas, but not like this….this was on another level. My favorite thing I enjoyed while pregnant with him was banana bread with chocolate chips. Banana bread alone is super delicious, but once you add chocolate it really takes your taste buds on an adventure!

Do you all love couscous? Traditional in North Africa, couscous is coarsely ground pasta made from semolina. It actually doesn’t have much flavor, but if you add some yummy extras, like tomatoes and bacon it will elevate the dish to another level. The whole wheat version, which I used in the recipe below packs 5-6 grams of fiber per serving too! So….let’s get onto that recipe!

A few years ago my husband and I were vacationing in Vegas, while there we had the opportunity to dine at Piero’s Italian Restaurant. The restaurant has seen the likes of celebrities from Michael Jordan to Justin Timberlake, and offers a 5 star dining experience. Our meal was perfection to say the least, including an unforgettable creamed corn recipe that Piero’s is known for.
During Thanksgiving at my dad’s this year, my step-moms corn casserole brought me right back to that moment at Piero’s. It was that good! When she shared how simple it was to make, I just had to recreate it for all of you. Viking sent me this beautiful stainless steel casserole pan and I couldn’t pass up making the corn casserole in this stunning pan!
