Food Romance

Most people like food, some people love food, I however am passionate about food. Not so much eating it, but preparing it and sharing it with others. I love the way food flavors and colors marry together into an exciting eating experience. I love to cook as if I am on a journey, delving into the untried and unknown only to find a new dish, both pleasing to the eye as well as the pallet. I have always been lucky with food, always seemed to find the right combination of ingredients, and never liked using a recipe. Repeats of dishes often differ slightly in taste and texture than they did the last time they were prepared, giving the palate a familiar flavor, but a new experience, a new romance....

Shrimp, Scallops and Ravioli’s

My wife, Tracey, is not fond of seafood.  She will eat the occasional fish and chips, but shellfish, not happening.  When it is just me and the boys we break out some seafood and go to work.

I started this dish by cooking down some sundried tomato, garlic, salt, pepper and butter.  I set this aside for later use.


I pan seared my sea scallops in butter, adding some nice sized shrimp at the turn.

Spinach and Cheese ravioli was quickly boiled and standing by.


Scallops and shrimp are put on the plate, awaiting the ravioli.


Ravioli is tossed in a hot pan with butter and the sundried tomato that was set aside.


Serve the ravioli with the shrimp and Scallops!

Simple, tasty and impressive to your guests.

  1. I really don't know that I've ever been disappointed with a meal from your kitchen.

    If you like, though, I'll make sure and let you know when it happens.
