Sautéed Shrimp Salad With Lime Cilantro Aioli

When life throws you limes, you make an aioli. And that’s what I am doing. My schedule is so hectic this semester that I may need to remind myself from time to time that I am human. This is why I’m cooking easy dishes that don’t take much to make.

I loved what my mom said after eating this dish: “Katherine, this is so good.” We used to live far away from each other, but not anymore. Someone is getting used to eating my food.


Bon Appétit!


Restaurants To Try: Fadó Irish Pub


Going into the Fadó Irish Pub was a spontaneous decision. I was passing by it and I got caught my attention. I was reading the menu when a couple started talking to me about and how good the burger and the smoked salmon bites.

My friend and I were literally driving around trying get a parking spot for like an hour until we decided to just park at a parking lot. It was so expensive. Like NYC expensive. Wow!

Anyway, since we couldn’t get near a restaurant we were trying to get to, I was looking around for a new one. That’s how we ended up by the pub. Lucky strike!


I ordered the Smoked Salmon Bites. It had horseradish sauce, capers and red onions. It was delicious. You can’t go wrong with smoked salmon.


I also had the “Soup of The Day.” I was Ginger Carrot Soup. It was delicious as well. It was the perfect end. Too bad I didn’t get to eat dessert. The dessert menu is so small. That sometimes is a sign that the restaurant doesn’t have a pastry chef onsite.

Overall, I liked the restaurant. If you are around Philadelphia, pay them a visit.

Restaurants To Try: Nomad Pizza


I went to Philadelphia over the weekend to visit an old classmate of mine from high school. We went around the downtown area. It was fun, even though it was raining non-stop throughout the weekend.

Someone recommended this restaurant to me. I am always up for trying new restaurants. I just love food. Any excuse is valid.


Nomad Pizza is a nice little pizza place. The oven was right in front of us and I could smell the truffle oil from the table. We ordered Truffle Pecorino pizza. My only complaint is that it was a bit high on sea salt in the center. I like well-seasoned dishes and when I say something is high on salt, other people find it really salty. I liked the pizza. It was tasty; just not the center of it. I would still recommend the restaurant. My friend liked it and she is a very picky eater. That says something.
