Summer time means seafood to me. Here are four seafood recipes I’m digging at the moment:
1. Panko-crusted Crab Cake Bites with Roasted Pepper-Chive Aioli
2. Scampi Stuffed and Roasted Shrimp
3. Lemon Butter Baked Shrimp
Melt a stick of butter in the pan. Slice one lemon and layer it on top of the butter. Put down fresh shrimp, then sprinkle one pack of dried Italian seasoning. Put in the oven and bake at 350 for 15 min.
4. Crab-Filled Crescent Wontons
I can’t even believe it. I mean, I had a chocolate cake shot on my birthday (1/2 citrus vodka, 1/2 hazelnut liquor, finished with a sugared or salted lemon). But this? This just feels too good to be true. It’s a Funfetti Cake Batter Martini.
Yes, you read me right. A Funfetti Cake Batter Martini. Just look at that baby! It looks just like cake batter. Which really, ya know, makes me want to race home to my kitchen and my hand mixer, but something that looks and tastes like cake batter, plus alcoholic goodness? Yes, please.
Check out the recipe over on SheKnows.com. And if, you know, you want to thank me for springing this joy on you early on a Wednesday morning, let me know when and where to meet you for a girls’ night in. I’m thinking these martinis would go exceptionally well with a John Hughes marathon.
It’s also the perfect way to celebrate No Copay Day.
I’d never heard of red velvet cake until a year or two ago. And then everybody was talking about it! Well, now that I’ve tasted red velvet cookies, I’m curious what other versions of velvet cake there are. Here are three ways to play with the original, as found on Pinterest:
1. Red Velvet Cake Rolls
2. Blue Velvet Cake
3. Purple Velvet Cupcakes
Which one are you most excited to bite into?

1. Grilled Bruschetta Chicken
2. Bacon Wrapped Chicken Fingers
Boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins wrapped in bacon and then top with a mixture of cream of chicken soup and a cup of sour cream. Cover with foil and bake at 225 for about 4 hours. Then remove foil and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
3. Mini Chicken Pot Pies with Bisquick
4. Copycat Chick-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets

One of my favorite dishes at pizza places is something called Megafries. I don’t know if they have them everywhere, but it’s French fries drenched (usually) in Cheese Whiz & mozzarella and smothered in bacon. I’ve never actually made them at home although it should be easy. Then I saw this picture on Pinterest that someone captioned, “Crack Potatoes.” They look really easy to make and really freaking yummy. Check it out:
Loaded Potato Casserole
(via Plain Chicken)
2 (16oz) containers sour cream
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 (3oz) bags real bacon bits
2 packages Ranch Dip mix
1 large (28 – 30oz) bag frozen hash brown potatoes – shredded kind
Combine first 4 ingredients, mix in hash browns. Spread into a 9×13 pan. Bake at 400 for 45-60 minutes.
Option storage method: Divide the potatoes into 3 small 7×7 disposable foil pans, wrap in plastic and then foil, and freeze them.
