Fennel and Celery Salad with Parmesan


One of our favorite networks to watch on TV is the Food Network Channel. From Chopped, to Worst Cooks in America, to Beat Bobby Flay, and now Amy Schumer Learns to Cook (with her husband, Chris Fischer, who is a chef). We love everything about this show! The comedy, the recipes, the cocktails, and how they beautifully display each recipe on a piece of cardboard at the beginning. HA! 

This recipe is courtesy of Chris Fischer and Amy Schumer! I plan to make more of their recipes real soon! Next up... Fried Rice with Pork and Scallops! Yummo! 


- 1 fennel bulb, very thinly sliced

- 5 celery stalks, very thinly sliced

- 1 Tbs lemon juice

- 2 Tbs olive oil (we used 3 and that was perfect)

- kosher salt (or your favorite seasonings)

- 3 Tbs grated parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients and enjoy! Isn't that easy? I believe they added the cheese after they put the fennel/celery mixture on individual plates. Mixed right in works too. Also, in the same lazy manner, instead of taking awhile to thinly slice the fennel bulb and celery, I chopped them roughly and then used my Pampered Chef food chopper to finish the job. Worked great!

Crab Meat Deviled Eggs with Old Bay and Tarragon



A seaside twist on some already amazing deviled eggs! 


- 6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled

- 1/4 cup mayonnaise

- 1 Tbs mustard

- 1/2 to 1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning

- 1 Tbs sweet pickle juice

- 3 oz. fresh crab meat

- cilantro (optional)

- paprika (optional)

Slice eggs in half. Remove yolks and mash with a fork or potato masher. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for cilantro and paprika. After combined, spoon or pipe mixture back into egg-white halves. Place a little piece of crab meat and cilantro on top and sprinkle with paprika. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Enjoy!
