Being a food blogger is great. I get to share my delicious recipes with all of you great people, plus I have them all stored in one handy place. I also get to participate in cool things like the Driscoll’s berry twitter event and Secret Recipe Club. On top of all that, I get to look at other food blogs constantly, all filled with AWESOME recipes. I have a notepad on my desktop that has been filling up with links to recipes that I “must” make. It is hard trying to think up your own original recipes sometimes when you are surrounded by so many other delicious ones! I have been on a spree lately making all sorts of things from other bloggers. This specific recipe is from one of my favorite blogs, Taste With the Eyes. She has complex recipes with awesome food photography.
The second day of my birthday weekend in San Francisco was filled with (surprise!) more food, drinks and walking. The restaurant we went to on Sunday, The Franciscan Crab Restaurant, was right on the water in the Fisherman’s Warf. There were large windows all around the restaurant which provided beautiful views practically anywhere you sat.
Since I have returned to the U.S. I have been craving hearty, spicy meals. I immediately had to get Mexican food when I got to New York City and have been craving it constantly. Unfortunately the fact that I have gained over 5 pounds during my three weeks abroad means that I need to get going on a health kick for summer. Today I ran while watching the Food Network and drooling over comfort food. I feel like I am kind of doing the same thing here by posting a delicious hearty casserole recipe for you to drool over as well.
This seafood casserole has it all- spice, zest and creaminess- all packed into a one-dish meal. I love casseroles because they are so easy to make and include everything for your meal all in one. Enjoy!
