Shrimp Spaghetti Carbonara + Wine Pairing

“This is such a tasty recipe that takes just minutes to prepare, but it has a ‘special’ feel and gourmet flare. It’s great when you want to pump up a weeknight dinner. Even though it’s a quick meal to make, it’s also elegant enough for dinner guests. Which makes it pretty much a perfect recipe! Am I right?” - Paula

Sweetheart Supper

“Prepare this Valentine's Day meal for your sweetheart and they will love you forever. Each component is simple and tasty. Put everything together and it's equivalent to a meal from a fancy restaurant. The herb rice is packed with flavor. Toasting the rice in butter adds so much to it. The fresh green beans are simple, but melting butter over them, along with salt and pepper, elevates them from ordinary green beans. Using a bamboo skewer in the lobster tail, the outcome is a perfect, beautiful lobster tail.” - Kitchen Crew

It’s a classic that can only be described as lip smacking comfort food that’s guaranteed to be devoured.” - Melissa

Chargrilled Oyster Pasta

“Since chargrilled oysters are grilled, I topped the pasta off with some more cheese and threw it under the broiler for a few minutes to melt the cheese and get it all nice and golden brown. I served the chargrilled oyster pasta along with some actual chargrilled oysters and some bread to mop up any remaining sauce from the plate. This is definitely one tasty pasta dish and it’s perfect for a special dinner for two like Valentine’s Day!” - Kevin
