Happy One Year Blogiversary to HerbOnHerbs!

Happy Blogiversary

HerbOnHerbs turns one year old today!!!

It was July 25th, 2012 when Herb planned to be in charge of dinner for the two of us in honor of our one year anniversary (when he had officially asked me to be his girlfriend the year before). He came over all dressed up and carrying some groceries, stating that he wanted us to make Chicken Marsala together. Of course, I thought this was a fabulous idea. But he also had other plans.

Slow Cooker Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Tenderloin

Balsamic Pork

Pinit

This pork tenderloin is a re-shoot from a previous post.  It should also be said that it is pretty much my favorite pork tenderloin recipe…EVER!  The pork is super moist and tender, and the thick glaze is sweet and tangy.  It’s also incredibly easy!

Chicken Burritos

Herb here. As you may know, Mrs. Herb and I both really like Mexican food.  I personally cannot EVER get enough guacamole! It is seriously my favorite food. Anyway, in search of another Mexican dish to make, we came across this burrito recipe and loved how adaptable it is and also very easy to make.

Saturday Throwback: More Summer Memories

Key West

Ah, more summer reminiscing. Last week, Sister Spice posted some old summer pics of the two of us in our younger years. We have sooo many wonderful memories that take place during the summer!

Blueberry Pie

I know it’s pretty obvious that we’re pie people around here.  I mean, seriously…we’ve got Chocolate Pie with Meringue, Nestle’s Chocolate Chip Pie, Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie, Key Lime Pie with Oreo Crust, Butterscotch Pie…yay for pie!  But really, out of all these delcious pies, this blueberry pie concoction of mine has people moaning with pleasure and fighting over the last piece.  And what a better way to use up all those great summer berries?

Garlic Shrimp Pasta with Tomatoes and Basil

I’m finally starting to get used to cooking with shrimp! This recipe was attempt number 3, and as with the Shrimp Fettuccini Alfredo and the Baked Coconut Shrimp, we were very happy with the delicious results.

Pagelli’s Italian Restaurant in Estero, Florida

Pagelli's

In Estero, Florida, there is a relatively new outdoor mall called Coconut Pointe. This place spans several acres and has dozens of restaurants and stores.  One such restaurant is an Italian restaurant called Pagelli’s, and it is Heavenly!  The only other Pagelli’s is located in Tampa. and the recipes are unique to this store.  My dad got the chicken marsala (pictured above).  Below, Mister Spice got the Cajun Pasta which featured blackened shrimp, sausage, veggies, garlic, and alfredo over fettucini noodles.

Saturday Throwback: Summer Memories

Summer Memories

This is Mrs. Herb and me back in the summer of 1992 I believe.  We are in the pool near our condo in Fort Myers, Florida (find more about wonderful Fort Myers in my blog post here from last Saturday).  We certainly swam like little fishies.  And speaking of fishies…

Crunchy Orange Chicken

If you haven’t noticed, we’ve been on a bit of an “orange” kick lately! It started with our Baked Coconut Shrimp with Orange Marmalade Dipping Sauce. Then we used some more orange marmalade to make the Orange Marmalade Cookies.
