A fintastic fish stew

So sofishticated
It’s fintastic!

I encourage you to get a little freaky with fish for this dish. Too often people are afraid to cook with fish anything beyond some salmon wrapped in tin foil. This stew will convince you to expand your menu rotation. It’ll also teach you to get friendly with your fishmonger, that’s the person who cuts the fish for you, in case you’ve been just calling that person your fish guy. You’re gonna want to work with fish man Mike to find a good piece of swordfish. You don’t need a super large portion, let your fishmonger know you’re throwing it in a stew and see if you can snag a little piece or two. Continue reading A fintastic fish stew

Blueberry Pie So Easy It Should Be Called Yo’ Momma

St John Karp
It’s a berry easy pie. I promise

The biggest proof that America has gone astray is the fact they picked the wrong pie. The whole “motherhood and apple pie” thing is bogus, unhinged, exploded. I’ve never heard anyone go, “APPLE PIE! Well tie me naked to the underbelly of a pig and call me Harold, I’ll take ten slices.” The truth is no-one gives a stuff about apple pie. It’s the fourth Indiana Jones movie; that extra Marx brother no-one can quite remember; Jayden Smith. But people absolutely lose their shit over cherry, blueberry, pecan, or rhubarb.

Bell Bottoms: Still Out | Stuffed Bell Peppers: Back in

A healthy twist on an old classic
I’m stuffed!

This is an easy, delicious, and healthy side. At first when I made this I thought, am I a 1950’s housewife?? I feel like bell stuffed peppers went out of style with green Jello molds filled to the brim with fruit.

When I tried my creation, I understood the obsession with these colorful flavor bowls. I said pass me the smokes and paint me with lead the 50’s are back!

Two unique “Spaghetti Cake” recipes

Spaghetti cake
Feed your kids spaghetti cake, as long as you say “cake” they’ll love it

“Lasagna is just spaghetti flavored cake”

Not only does this ring true, but I, as well as picky kids love both spaghetti and cake. If my mom would have said this to me as a kid I would have eaten so much more lasagna!

As great as lasagna is, sometimes it can seem a bit…old fashioned. At Newdie Mag we love to shake things up a bit, so here are two recipes that puts traditional, old fashioned “Spaghetti cake” to shame! Continue reading Two unique “Spaghetti Cake” recipes

Toddlers: Cute. Rambunctious. Fun loving. Get food everywhere.

We should all strive to be a bit more like toddlers, especially in the “get food everywhere” arena. Items that we generally associate with putting in our bodies can be a great natural way to nourish the outside of our bodies (I’m talking about food here, not anything else…this isn’t that kind of nudie mag).

Irish Coquito: A Recipe for a Boozy Christmas

An island drink
Gift it…or drink it all. Not judging

Christmas is coming up and for me that means making a bunch of bottles of my favorite alcoholic treat, coquito or island egg nog.  If you have no idea what that is, I used to live in St. Croix in the Virgin Islands and in December every restaurant, bar and island grandma competes for the best recipe.

Be trendy: Use Cauliflower

It's trendy
Cauliflower rice, rice baby. So good. So good.

OK, so you started dating someone new and they’re (dramatic music) VEGAN! Don’t panic, we’ve got you, this cauliflower rice side will impress any cow kisser.

With no cheese and no meat it’s exactly what you need to go with that slab of tofu and that pile of hot spinach. I actually love cauliflower and this is a great way to work it into a dish with big flavor and little preparation. Both the hearty baby bella’s and the sun dried tomatoes will give it the kick you need to add a little flavor to this new little trendsetter. Continue reading Be trendy: Use Cauliflower

DIY Donuts

Do-nut try this at home. JK. Try it and enjoy!

So on my last work trip. I was sent to Pittsburgh for a total of 19 hours. Although this is a beautiful city that I had never been to before, the only things I wanted to do was sleep, be boring and look up cute cat videos on Instagram.

Depressing? Absolutely not. Old lady AF? You freakin’ betcha. I own that s***. Continue reading DIY Donuts
