Guest Post: Sea Scallops... a luxury party!

Posted Oct 19 2010 6:26am
I have some fantastic news times two today. So do you want the good news first or the good news first? Ha! Ok, I'll give you the good news first and then the good news...

Today I am ever so excited and honored to have my very first guest post. Not only is it my first guest post, it's Lazaro over at Lazaro Cooks! and if you haven't been over to his blog, you need to. The end. Go! After you read this, of course...

Lazaro is leaps and bounds one of my favorite bloggers, not only because his food is amazing but because he is also very genuine. His food is genuinely amazing though, no doubt about that. He puts me to shame times nine hundred which is why I am so so pleased that he agreed to do a guest post here. Also, (and I'm not sure he wants me to say this but) he shares a birthday with my brother (it's on the 21st!) so it's basically like he's a brotha from anotha motha... so everyone go over and check out his amazingness and give him a bday shout out.

Ok, are you ready for more good news? Today is the day we leave for Italy. I am beyond excited while simultaneously completely exhausted from packing up the family for a 2 1/2 week stay overseas. That is no small feat. Hence the sparse blog posts but y'all understand, yes?

I am super excited that we will be there, taking in the sights and food. Oh the food! Think cooking classes all the pasta you can eat and all the wine you can drink. Amazing wine! I plan to gain at least twelve pounds while I'm gone so stay tuned. I will keep you posted on the haps over in the Its.

In the meantime, enjoy the amazingess that is this: Lazaro Cooks!

Hello readers of La Pure Mama.  My name is Lazaro, I blog over at  Lazaro Cooks!   I am truly honored to be sharing this space with such a talented cook.  Ellen is one of the best cooks I have come across on the blogosphere.  Her cuisine is healthy, complex, and beautifully presented.  However, I am sure you already know this.

Today, we party.  Inspired by the "Luxury" party hosted on the site Pretentious Buzz. 

Marvelous sustainable Sea Scallops are the star of the show.  These sweetly succulent and healthy for you mollusks once inspired me to  channel my inner poet.   For the cook, they are so versitile being able to shine in various cooking techniques.  That's what I intend to show here.

Thanks again, Ellen.  Very gracious of you to invite me.
