Lazy Lobster, Chatham, Massachusetts 

Don’t ask me why, but for some reason I had never been to Cape Cod before a month and a half ago. After going in September for a wedding I think I’m addicted now. It was so quaint, cute, and quintessentially New England! Of course with cute, beachy, New England towns come some awesome seafood…

Greece is a magical place and has some of the best seafood I’ve ever eaten! Best vacation yet!

Portuguese Broiled Codfish

Flex Mussels, Upper East Side

Friday night my boyfriend and I got to try out a really spectacular little gem on the Upper East Side, Flex Mussels.  I had never been there but I had heard great things, and it truly held up to its reputation.  Flex Mussels is a great date spot because its theme is unique, the atmosphere is cozy,…

Blackened Salmon Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Shrimp Satay

Crab Cakes with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Everyone has those recipes that they like to whip out for special occasions.  For me, these Crab Cakes with Chipotle Mayonnaise have become the go-to recipe for a special dinner (Food and Wine, 2012).   I originally got the recipe from the 2012 Food and Wine Annual Cookbook (you can see the original recipe here), and honestly…
