T Rex Cake - Happy 30th Bryce!

My husband, Bryce, turned 30 this weekend. We spent 3 glorious days in Whistler [British Columbia, Canada] with 8 of our friends. We ate, drank, skied and/or snowboarded, and enjoyed this delicious and hilarious cake!

Traditional Irish Breakfast

Last year we were able to visit Ireland. We spent the most of our time in the large city of Dublin, although we also adventured to the smaller towns of Bunratty, Doolin, and Galway. In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day please allow me to share with you my most favorite meal of the trip.

Dinner During Lent - Shrimp and Black Bean Enchiladas

It's part 3 of Dinner During Lent, where I'm cooking a different meat-free meal for every Friday during the 40 days leading up to Easter.

Part 1 was simple and quick - pierogies and asparagus
Part 2 was a recipe we brought all the way back from Sicily - pasta con le sarde

That brings us to the present, part 3, Shrimp and Black Bean Enchiladas. That's right, we're straying away from my staple of pasta. Polish pierogies then Italian spaghetti, it's time for a change.

The original recipe is from the 1998 Mayo-Clinic Williams-Sonoma Cookbook which I scored at a Goodwill Store in Hawaii for anywhere between 99 cents and $2.50. Humble beginnings, right? I've made this recipe more times than I can count and it's about time I share it with you!
