Threw this together on the balcony of our B&B in Rome: Arugula salad with fresh Italian tomatoes from Campo di Fiori, pesto and bresaola. Not fancy, but for the context and location, it is perfect.

Wow! Some serious culinary skill in here. I'm not as talented as of some you but I make a pretty badass carbonara.

Not as fancy plating and shitty berry pics but I thought I may as well post a couple up

So I have been craving the California Shrimp pizza from Earls but since they took it off their menu so I decided to make my own. Homemade Whole wheat crust, Shrimp, Feta, Mozza and Pesto.



Cedar plank salmon with a brown sugar and honey mustard glaze, roasted red potatos and garlic shrimp

thanks, it's turned out excellent. I've never been a real fan of making dough and finally this batch turned out perfect. Next time I want to use larger shrimp tho, it's covered and you can hardly tell. The lemon goes perfect with the shrimp and pesto, finishes it off nicely.

^ Can't tell if that's brunch or dinner lol. Poached egg and mimosa says brunch, but duck breast and couscous says dinner. Looks good, though; Segura is some good bubbly.

I know, it's a weird match. It was for brunch, but I just figured the open-faced sandwich alone would look too lonely on the plate, and I wanted to try my hand at couscous lol.

I've been lurking this thread for a while and drooling over all of your food!

This is the second time I've actually cooked anything (and the first time the girlfriend and I cooked something together) in the kitchen that didn't come out of a package. I'm going to try to start cooking a lot more though!

We both tried a dish each.

I made scallop wrapped in bacon on a bed of baby spinach with onions and garlic:


and she made a sausage, bacon and zucchini carbonara in a cream sauce

Thanks! We're definitely going to keep on learning how to cook and try out new recipes every now and then!

Do you guys have any suggestions as to what we should try next?

Happy to be back in the kitchen all thanks to my recent visit to the Vancouver Food Carts Festival. I stood in line for a good 15 mins in the beating sun to get my hands on some korean tacos... sounds good right? Wrong! I felt robbed It was literally kimchi and marinated meat thrown together by a sweaty white guy not wearing gloves!! But I guess I have that to thank for today's inspiration. Fish/Shimp Tacos - killer avocado,cilantro,garlic sauce... I used wonton wrappers instead of the usual corn tortillas, I like the extra crunch and lightness of the wonton skins. Enjoy
