For the past five years, Tiffany Edwards has been documenting her kitchen endeavors on her blog Creme de la Crumb. But even before she became a Pinterest sensation, she fell in love with the process of cooking, eating, writing and sharing recipes with others.
Her passion for cooking is rooted in her belief that great meals don’t have to be difficult, time consuming, or expensive. Accordingly, she goes for taste-tested meals that are quick and easy. In fact, all the recipes you’ll find on Creme de la Crumb have been given the thumbs-up by Tiffany’s husband, the blog’s official taste tester and editor in chief.

On Creme de la Crumb, I share taste-tested and family approved recipes for the everyday cook. My goal in cooking is to elevate mealtime by creating easy-to-follow recipes with simple steps that yield delicious results.
Why do you love seafood?
I could eat seafood for all three meals – I love it! I grew up eating everything from grilled shrimp to broiled salmon, boiled crab legs and fresh-made sushi. I love seafood because it pairs well with so many ingredients and other foods, yet holds its own when it comes to flavor.
What is your favorite seafood dish to make at home or order at a restaurant?
At home I make salmon at least twice per week, usually grilled or broiled. At a restaurant, I love to order fish tacos or a great lobster roll!
What’s next on your “must make” or “must order” seafood list?
One of my favorite seafood restaurants has a delicious crab-and-lobster grilled cheese sandwich – it needs to be recreated in my kitchen, pronto!
What are your tips for people who might be intimidated by preparing seafood at home?
Pay a little more for convenience! Purchase your shrimp peeled with veins removed, and your salmon with the skin off. This saves so much time when you’re trying to whip up dinner at home on a busy night!
Any words of wisdom for parents who have picky eaters? How did you get your kids to eat seafood?
To ease kids into eating seafood, add it to a soup, like a lobster bisque or a shrimp-and-corn chowder!
