Like it or not, fall is quickly approaching—which means it is time to start preparing for colder weather and warming recipes. Fall is by far my favorite season of the year (strongly influenced by football), and I also love having a hearty stew, soup, or other warm meal to pair with the changing leaves and cooling weather.
This seafood stew is partially inspired by our friend Russ, of the Domestic Man, as he gifted us with some homemade fish stock (UPDATE: get the recipe here) when we last visited. He’s one of our aspirational cook friends (check out our review of his cookbook here), and we wanted to take full advantage of the offering. This stew may be made with a variety of seafood, depending on what is available where you are, and is quite delicious. We hope you’ll take this recipe on and make it your own this fall.
Sorry this week’s post is somewhat short on dialogue (or you’re welcome to those who just want the recipe!). Things are a bit crazy on our end, but we hope to get back to sanity somewhat soon. We’ve been preparing and organizing for the upcoming P3! Paleo, Polyface, PorkFest! There are lots of giveaways going on, so you’ll want to check it out. If you’re in the MD/DC/VA area, you should come! We’re super grateful to be sponsored by none other than Polyface Farms, and we hope we do them proud. But that’s bacon, and this is cod…
Cod is a fish that we hadn’t been very familiar with, but after conquering fritters we decided it was something we would like to have more often. Especially when it goes on sale wild-caught at Costco. This is a pan fried/poached rendition with a tasty glaze.
This Mother’s Day, we were able to take over my mother’s kitchen and really go to town on cooking some recipes not just for food for the week, but for me to pay homage to my mom, who really turned me on to cooking. One of my favorite recipes she used to always make for me is her seafood fettuccine alfredo, which is absolutely to die for. It is also full of dairy and wheat. While I love that recipe, it definitely doesn’t fit into my current lifestyle, and I would hate to remember it for how it would inevitably make me feel now than how great it tasted.
