Sriracha Shrimp Cocktail Recipe on WhiteOnRiceCouple.com

Mom always loves making me lunch. But it’s not just for me, but for all her six kids and all our friends. Though I don’t live with her, I visit her enough to make her heart and feeding frenzy habits happy. And get this, she even has tons of little bags and disposable containers for all of us to take food home in. That way, she doesn’t have to keep track of who has all of her tupperware containers. All of my brothers’ friends are fed so well that it’s become a daily ritual to come for dinner four to five nights a week. Aside from leaving with a full stomach, they leave with their “to-go” bags too so everyone is happy, full, and well stocked up!

Today’s “mom lunch” was very shrimp inspired and I can tell that there was going to be some of her famous noodles in my bag as well because when there’s shrimp, there’s a serving of her rice noodles. Everything I expected was in my bag but the big plus was an additional pound of  huge and super fresh shrimp. Score! I haven’t had so much shrimp before in one lunch bag, such a treat!

Sriracha Shrimp Cocktail Recipe on WhiteOnRiceCouple.com

Rather than save the shrimp for my second-lunch, I was craving a Summery dish that could be paired with a nice glass of sparking rose. For Summer, rose is on top of our drinks list along with a super refreshing panache.

First thing that comes to mind was grilling the shrimp, but I was wanting something easier and cold. Something refreshing that I can easily snack on for dinner if our appetites couldn’t handle all the shrimp in one sitting.

Rather than grilling, the second idea that came to mind was a refreshing shrimp cocktail. And how about some sriracha? Anyone here love sriracha hot sauce like I do? I’m sure there are many, but do you love it as much to make it homemade? I must confess, I’m a hot sauce addict and have a cache of homemade jars of sriracha in our pantry. That’s what you call homemade obsession.

This cocktail sauce was so easy to make, I can’t believe I didn’t make this more often. And how does it pair to sparking rose? Perfect!

hugs,

diane

Fresh Apricot Bars

Lately it seems our cooking at home has been driven by an over abundance of ingredients. Creativity from Copiousness, if you will. Not that we are complaining. Quite the opposite really, we couldn’t be happier.

The garden is going blitzkrieg with its tomato production. We’ve lost the battle for the blueberries with the mockingbirds, but that has distracted them from the sweet flesh of the plums, necta-plums, and soon to be pluots. Although they now have discovered the white peaches up front, but all isn’t »

Oh we know they’re not really lollipops. But when we were grilling these little red jewels the term “tomato skewers” sounded so mundane. After plucking these super sweet cherry tomatoes from their vines, they were so cute and plump, it sounded more appropriate (and fun) to call »

Spring Roll Bites – “Tapas” for All

Thumbnail image for Spring Roll Bites – “Tapas” for All

Perhaps it’s by birth that I’m so addicted to fresh spring rolls. I can’t negate the fact that I was bred on a diet of rice and noodle dishes, so anything with Vietnamese or Asian flavors always sounds appealing. But if I could name one Vietnamese dish that I have at least three or four times a week, spring rolls are the front and center.

My love for spring rolls goes beyond the traditional pork & shrimp rolls that you would find on most Vietnamese »

Hi Friends. Are you all on Instagram? If not, you’re missing out on really simple, yet fun community of friends catching up with one another via pictures. We enjoy it and it’s always been a serene place to browse though our friends day from their mobile photographs. But now video is a new 15 second feature on our once simple feed of quiet images.

Junk Food Confessions

Let’s be honest. We all have our vices and hidden underneath or behind our pantry shelves somewhere probably lies a half eaten box of Little Debbie chocolate cupcakes. It could possibly be our box of stress-relief after a long days work or when you need to quietly sneak your kid some sugar contraband just so that they can leave you alone to write your blog post. Either way, I know nearly all home cooks are guilty, at some point, of eating outside their “local, seasonal, »

Grilled Green Tomatoes, An Accidental Dish

Thumbnail image for Grilled Green Tomatoes, An Accidental Dish

It’s always an accident. At some point during my garden duties of tying up the tomato vines on the trellis, I inevitably bump a healthy green tomato and watch it fall to the ground. Darn it. There’s nothing more frustrating than to watch a beautiful heirloom tomato grow to it’s perfect shape and never see it to it’s full ripened stage. My clumsy hands somehow manage to break tender vines that are laden with tomato flowers and accidentally bump green tomatoes off the plants. It’s »

Can you believe it? 2013 is already half way through, our heirloom tomatoes are starting to ripen and Summer feels like it’s arrived in full swing. Every day we’re taking time to live in the moment because before we know it, we’ll be sourcing our Christmas tree. What a scary thought.

From a photographic perspective, Summer started back in December 2012 for us. When we’re shooting and styling editorial and advertising campaigns, we’re on a different clock. So in Summer we’ll be cooking and planning »

Juicy Lucy Burger Party & Recipe

How can someone resist a burger that comes with a warning disclaimer? That was exactly our predicament a little over two years ago and we soon found our burger world rocked.

In the middle of a whirlwind trip we found ourselves in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, affectionately dubbed the twin cites. We were one set of the speakers on slate for the Creative Connection, which in a twist of fate was perfect timing to meet up with the lovely, talented, and ever so sweet Zoe »

Roasted Zucchini with Cheese and Herbs

A vegetable side dish doesn’t have to be complicated. I often remind myself of this when menu planning for a party of twelve or more. Even if I’m making dinner for two, I remind myself again and again: keep it simple, keep it fresh and it will be great. Sometimes I’ll browse through a cookbook and see a massive list of ingredients for a vegetable dish and I’m already exhausted. I’m not new to cooking vegetables. After 19 years of being a vegetarian, I’ve pretty »

Fire Rosted Summer Corn Salad

It’s this time of year that we’re craving fresh corn and thanks to the bounty of the season, gorgeous corn is making its appearance at farmers markets. Such pleasure! Though it’s not officially Summer yet, it’s hard not to be in such the mood for fresh grilled salads and pretty much anything that comes off the bbq. Blame it on the weather for putting everyone in the mood for dining al fresco, with a plenitude of beer and rose.

We’ll also blame it on our »

Thinking Out Loud- Blow Torches and Favorites

“I think every woman should have a blow torch” – Julia Child.

These words, Julia’s words, are brilliant. I can’t help it but to look it up again every so often because it makes me laugh out loud and it doesn’t matter where I am when I’m reminded of it, people look at me crazy because I’m laughing into the wind. I’m totally cool with looking like a looney and giggling because Julia’s words just strike a chord with me.

I can interpret Julia’s words »

You know how you are searching for one thing and end up on a tangent, totally forgetting about your original search, but you did find something awesome. That is how these cookies came about.

In another moment of distraction, or was is work avoidance, we stumbled upon Giada’s Lemon Ricotta cookies. The recipe looked tasty and the raves were stunning, so we just had to make them.

The last few weeks have been quite adventurous.

If you’ve ever experienced either one of those, you’ll know that they both pose their own set of challenges.

Do you ever take a much needed day just to un-plug, to remove yourself from your everyday duties and do what makes you happy? We’re not talking about a few hours, but rather, a full day that doesn’t include email, social media or work. Personally, we often forget about taking that special day where we can just forget about our work lives and do those simple things that bring us so much joy.

We were able to squeeze that type of day a few »

Want to know what goes on behind the scenes of one of our food photography shoots in our studio? Well finally, here it is! So many of you have asked for a video and sneak peak into all the scenes that happens on our shoots. Because we’re always so busy in the kitchen and behind the camera, it’s so hard to execute the video filming process. Why? because we want to be the ones filming the video part. We’re just crazy multi-taskers that way!

Pinterest gets me in trouble, and it isn’t even from me browsing. Diane will be lying on the couch at the end of the day, scrolling along while I catch up to the sports world on ESPN. Then suddenly she’ll pipe up “I want that”, thrusting her phone towards me.

What am I supposed to do, say “No”? Well, I could but between you and me, I like to bake. I don’t mind at all when she discovers these little sweet cravings. We’ve had »

I love a really good cookie. Though I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, I appreciate and savor every bite of dessert that my palate can tolerate. And though I’m not capable of eating too much, I’m always searching for a great recipe that can satisfy my two to three bites of sweet joy.

And what do I mean by a really good cookie? I know everyone has their criteria on what they expect out of a cookie, so having an open discussion here »
