Recipe for Spicy Shrimp Sandwich with Chipotle Avocado Mayonnaise at Life
I will be the first one to admit that I am not a huge sandwich person. Ryan loves them. He loves sub sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, roast beef sandwiches, meatloaf sandwiches, meatball sandwiches…I could go on and on. I on the other hand am not a huge fan. With that said, I will admit that after making and eating this sandwich I dreamed about it and craved it for the next few days. The spicy shrimp, the creamy chipotle avocado mayonnaise, the crunchy bread and crisp lettuce is enough to make anyone a sandwich fan. Avocados alone are pretty creamy so I was a little hesitant to mix them with mayonnaise but seriously, the result was like avocado heaven.

Sesame Seared Tuna with Lime Ginger Vinaigrette Sunday, April 26, 2009 In conjunction with my podcast with Michael Ruhlman’s Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking. And true to the book’s goal, I didn’t use a recipe to develop the Lime-Ginger Vinaigrette for the Sesame Seared Tuna. After a quick check in the refrigerator, I had one good key lime and a nub of ginger…so following Ruhlman’s ratio for 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar, I whisked together this concoction. Stromboli I know lots of people are gearing up for the Super Bowl this weekend. Good times, yummy snacks, and funny commercials. If you're looking for another recipe to throw amongst your spread, look no further... this Stromboli is guaranteed to please a crowd! When I saw a guest post at Liv Life for Football Party Stromboli, I knew I had to make it for Matt.

Baked Potato Grilled Cheese Behold my latest creation…THE BAKED POTATO GRILLED CHEESE! After the glory that was the Brocolli & Cheddar Soup Grilled Cheese , I began racking my brain for what other wonderful things I could deconstruct into grilled cheese format. Soon enough I had envisioned this piece of grilled cheese heaven! I mean how can you go wrong with fried potatoes, bacon, cheese, sour cream and chives all made into a melty grilled cheese? Oven-Fried Onion Rings I really love onion rings, and if I had to pit a good onion ring against a good french fry... well it would be a hard decision. But the problem with onion rings is that so often the are sub par and disappointing. Either the breading is too thick, the onions are too thick or thin, or the onion is undercooked. Biting into a crispy piece of breading only to be met with raw onion is the worst.

Siu Mai 31st May 2012By KurtPhotography by Adam These little bite-sized morsels are my absolute favourite item from the yum char menu. I quite often meet my wife and her family for a yum char lunch during the week. It makes a nice little break from my working day, and even better the restaurant is right across the road from the office. Three things always happen; we order way too much food, we eat all of it (even if our sides are splitting), then we quietly make our way back to work for a little nap. Well not quite a nap, but a very slow couple of hours! Bang Bang Shrimp The one and only time I ate at a Bonefish Grill was about 5 years ago on a work trip in North Carolina. We went to Carrabba’s the night before and I believe we wrapped the trip up with Applebee’s on our way to the airport. My idea of food hell, most of my coworker’s idea of a good meal. When someone suggested an appetizer of fried calamari at Carrabba’s the first night and one of my coworkers looked at her like she had 5 heads having never heard of calamari before, that’s when I knew it was going to be a fun meal. I have no idea what rock he spent the first 23 years of his life living under but I sure as heck tried to find out during dinner. The answer?

Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich I certainly have been into the fresh field ripened tomatoes lately! I have been picking up at least a full basket of them every week and most weeks they have disappeared long before the end of the week. Primarily I have been enjoying them in BLT sandwiches but recently I had a new idea and that was for a caprese grilled cheese sandwich. Smoky Sweet Potato Burgers with Roasted Garlic Cream and Avocado Before we talk burgers, let me tell you what I’m doing. I’m eating some blueberry yogurt pretzels (which are oh-so awesome… but would be even awesomer if they were really coated in yogurt and not white chocolate disguised as yogurt) and drinking a san pellgrino aranciata that is spiked with um… vodka, malibu and tequila. With those pretty perfectly square ice cubes. I know. I just couldn’t decide! I just kept adding things to the soda until I got a taste that I liked.

Cheesy Spinach & Bacon Quesadillas Some nights a girl just wants to be lazy when it comes to dinner. Usually, this brings to mind the little blue box of mac & cheese that we all know so well. Or maybe slapping a slice of cheese between some bread, toasting it, and calling it a day. I wasn't in the mood for fixing dinner tonight, but I wanted something that was still just a little bit special, so I rummaged the fridge to see what I could come up. Somehow, I ended up with a counter full of cheese, bacon, cream cheese, tortillas, and some spinach. You can’t go wrong with those ingredients, right?

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos One of the best grilled appetizers is bacon wrapped jalapeno peppers. This recipe is so easy to make and it only consist of 3 ingredients; fresh jalapenos peppers, cream cheese, and bacon. The jalapeno peppers are first sliced in half then seeded, stuffed with cream cheese, wrapped with bacon and grilled. You should consider wearing gloves when slicing and seeding the jalapenos because they can burn your hands. With the play offs coming up and the super bowl near this is a perfect recipe for game day. Enjoy. Kung Pao Shrimp Ok, I’ll be honest. I have no idea if this really qualifies as “kung pao” anything. I just really like that phrase. Bring me to a PF Chang’s or any Chinese restaurant and you’d be pretty safe making a bet I’ll order something with those words in front of it. It’s fun to say, it’s spicy and it’s one of the few Chinese dishes that doesn’t have at least one rando ingredient that makes you question what you’re chewing.

Char Siu Bao (Pork Buns) 20th May 2012By KatePhotography by Adam When I was living in Japan I used to buy these buns from the seven eleven below my apartment. In true Japanese style in addition to the traditional Chinese fillings they came in all sorts of kooky flavours like pizza, cheese & curry and chicken and mayonnaise. Along with a can of hot coffee they were a most reliable cure after a night out clubbing in Ropponggi.
