I realized that I haven't eaten popcorn shrimp since before I was diagnosed (and even then I'm not sure if I ate it at all)! I was diagnosed when I was in first grade, so who knows what I actually ate at that age. This recipe was a little messy to make, but the end result was so delicious and satisfied my craving for junk food. Quarantine has caused me to try to think out of the box in terms of recipes to ensure that I'm not eating the same meal over and over again while expanding my horizons on different cooking techniques.


1 tablespoon cajun seasoning

1 cup gluten-free flour (I used King Arthur's)

1/2 tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon pepper

1 1/2 teaspoon salt (this can be edited based on your preferences)

2 eggs

1 lb frozen cooked shrimp

Canola oil for frying


  1. Mix together the flour, cajun seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl.

  2. In another bowl, beat 2 eggs.

  3. Put the frozen shrimp under running cold water until it thaws properly and then remove the tails (fair warning your hands might get super cold doing this, so make sure you have a towel nearby to dry them now and then).

  4. Pat the shrimp dry and them to a separate bowl.

  5. Add a little over a 1/4 of the flour mixture to evenly coat the shrimp.

  6. Dip the shrimp into the egg bowl and then coat it with another layer of flour by dipping it into the bowl of flour mixture.

  7. Fry the shrimp in canola oil and add parsley for garnish.

Voila! You have a delicious comfort meal :).

I am now three weeks into staying at home, and it has enabled me to try a lot more recipes! In this scary and tumultuous time it can be difficult to focus on the good, but it's so important to take the steps to ensure that you are taking care of yourself (more than just physically). I am going to try my best to publish recipes that are easy to make, with ingredients you hopefully have laying around! Together, we will cook our way through these uncertain times, finding the joy in what we can, hopefully learning new cooking tactics along the way.


2 cloves minced garlic

1/4 cup butter

1 cup heavy cream

2 cups shredded parmesan

1 cup mushrooms

1/4 of an onion, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste



1. Saute the minced garlic, onion, and mushroom in 1 tablespoon of butter until it produces a delightful aroma, about 3-4 minutes.

2. Add salt and pepper to taste while you're stirring.

3. Add in the rest of the butter, heavy cream, shredded parmesan.

4. Stirring occasionally, cook the sauce on medium heat for about 10-12 minutes. If you want to make the sauce a little cheesier, feel free to add more white cheese (I added a slice of Havarti cheese).

5. Garnish with parsley and add more salt and pepper to taste.

Voila! You have an easy alfredo sauce that is the perfect comfort food for when you need a little pick me up in quarantine!



Since many of us will be spending a lot of time at home in the near future, it can be difficult to figure out what recipes to make or what treats to create. Eating the same thing over and over can be tiring, and with limited access to travel, we need to find different recipes that we can create with the same ingredients. What I love about this recipe is that it doesn't require too many ingredients or an abundance of time to make! It was the perfect pick-me-up for another afternoon at home :).


1 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1/2 cup sugar

2. Combine the peanut butter, egg, and sugar.

3. Roll the mixture into small balls and then flatten them on parchment paper.

4. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes.

Voila! You have super simple and delicious cookies!
