Shrimp Fettucine Alfredo

Shrimp Fettucine Alfredo Recipe

Pinit

You may have read in my 20 questions post on Monday that I’m still slightly intimidated by seafood. We just never really fixed it at my house growing up, mainly because my mom and Sister Spice don’t really like fish, although they do enjoy shrimp and some seafood. Anyway, I have vowed to learn to make some good seafood and I thought I would start small – with frozen shrimp.

Sirloin Steak with Orange Sauce

I love steak, and I love it fixed in any way possible, but when I saw a recipe for steak with orange sauce in my Taste of Home cookbook, I knew I had to try it, and I made several adjustments to make it my own, and the recipe is as follows:

Spinach-Ricotta Lasagna Roll-Ups

I love lasagna, and I love it fixed all different ways. These lasagna roll-ups are a meatless take on a traditional lasagna; whole wheat lasagna noodles packed with low-fat ricotta cheese and spinach…hearty, healthy, and tasty!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 8-12 lasagna noodles
  • 3-4 cups marinara or spaghetti sauce

Broccoli and Chicken Puffs

Okay. So first of all, I totally realize that these broccoli chicken puffs are not exactly the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen. They look a bit saggy, and you may be wondering what the heck they are or what is in them. But I promise you – they are delicious!

Breakfast Casserole II

It’s pretty safe to say that we like our breakfast casseroles around here.  There’s my Quick and Easy Breakfast Casserole, and Tracy’s Breakfast Pizza, but I’ve been seeing so many breakfast casseroles that use all the same stuff that’s found in my typical breakfast casseroles, minus the meat with the addition of hash browns.  So, I whipped up my own take on what I am calling Breakfast Casserole II.

Herb Chicken with Honey Butter

In my brand new, shiny Taste of Home cookbook, I couldn’t help but drool over the pictures of Herb Chicken with Honey Butter…it looked and sounded delightful!  It was perfect for a Tuesday night to serve with some fresh steamed veggies and warm, flaky biscuits.

As you have probably noticed from our blog, the Herb family is very fond of Italian food. I think I could eat Italian food all day, every day! That’s exactly what I had the opportunity to do back in 2007 with Sister Spice and a small group from our college. It was our first international trip and actually my first time ever on an airplane. We had an amazing 3-week trip, visiting Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast. It was wonderful! The food was absolutely fabulous. I’m pretty sure I gained 5 pounds in those 3 weeks!

Pesto Chicken Penne

Are you a pesto fan?  I had never had pesto until I was in college, and I fell in love with it! I’ve had lots of different types of pesto (with pine nuts, without pine nuts, etc) and I typically like it all.  This recipe, adapted from Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish, whips up an easy pesto on top of some chicken and whole wheat pasta for a quick and nutritious meal.

Mr. Herb here. I’m usually the one photographing any of the recipes posted by Mrs. Herb, but with this particular recipe I actually did the cooking AND the photographing!

Blackened Chicken with Quinoa and Avocado Cream Sauce

I love chicken, but I grow tired of eating the same ol’ chicken dishes every week.  This week, I decided to spice things up a bit, using a recipe from Stefanie at Sarcastic Cooking Blog.  I must say that it looked like a lot of work, but it was relatively simple and so delicious, Mister Spice and I savored every bite!
