I can even learn something new or get a good laugh that a recipe hadn't quite turned out exactly how I'd pictured it in my mind. Recently, I teamed up with Balducci's Market to create a few recipes for the summer. Balducci's, the Food Lover's Market, is a one stop shop for all of your food desires.

Have you ever had a samosa? Aren't they just delicious? They're little pockets of spicy crispy goodness and I'm always elated when I'm able to have one. This recipe uses some of the spices that are used in the filling of samosas and is paired with a puff pastry for flaky goodness, with shallots and a shrimp on top for good measure! With a little tamarind chutney, these little bites are sure to be a crowd pleaser. There are quite few steps but they're fairly simple to make once you've cut the puff pastry dough into the desired shapes. Give these a try, you won't regret it! Also, visit your local Balducci's, they have several locations from New England to the Mid-Atlantic!
