Homemade Shrimp Gumbo Recipe

Homemade Shrimp Gumbo Recipe

As promised here in another hearty soup, this time Homemade Shrimp Gumbo. I love soup and really enjoy the process of making homemade soup. It is comforting to eat and relaxing, at least for me, to make. Plus when you make your own soup at home you put in exactly what you want and leave out what you do not want. This one takes a while to make but it … Continue Reading →
Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I cooked dinner for Hubby and I. Many go out to eat on Valentine’s Day but I prefer to stay at home. I can cook, even a bit fancier meal, for less than it costs to go out and we don’t have all the crowds and waiting in line as if we go out. Hubby is a meat and potatoes kind of guy so that … Continue Reading →
Easy Low Country Shrimp Boil Recipe

Easy Low Country Shrimp Boil Recipe

Hubby loves to cook in his cast iron Dutch oven outside so he is always tagging me in recipes to see if I would want to try this or that. A few weeks ago he had come across a low country shrimp boil and really wanted to try it. Of course, when it was time to cook he couldn’t find said recipe, men! No problem though, I did a quick … Continue Reading →
National Shrimp Day, Easy Stir Fry, and a Coupon

National Shrimp Day, Easy Stir Fry, and a Coupon

National Shrimp Day Today (May 10) is National Shrimp Day! My family and I celebrated by having shrimp stir fry for dinner tonight. Being landlocked here in St. Louis it is hard to get super fresh shrimp, but frozen shrimp are usually not too bad. The only thing my family wishes is that they came with the tail off – no one likes having to cut them off at our … Continue Reading →
Holland House Basil Shrimp Pasta and Broccoli

Holland House Basil Shrimp Pasta and Broccoli

Tonight I tried a new recipe and a new product. The product was Holland House White Cooking Wine with Lemon. Now I cook with wine fairly often and so I wasn’t really sure about using “cooking wine” as many chefs honestly turn their nose up at it. However, I am not a big wine connoisseur truthfully. I do drink wine, but I can’t tell you what is what other than … Continue Reading →
Shrimp Sunday – Lemony Shrimp with Asparagus and Pasta

Shrimp Sunday – Lemony Shrimp with Asparagus and Pasta

Even though I do not consider myself religious, I was raised as a Catholic and so fish on Friday was a common occurrence, especially during lent. Even in our public school we seemed to have fish sticks each Friday (one of the few school foods I liked). I still love fish, but everyone at our house really loves shrimp too – so along with Fish Friday how about having Shrimp … Continue Reading →
I Guess Shrimp Were Rubbery in the Wild West

I Guess Shrimp Were Rubbery in the Wild West

We went to Longhorn Steakhouse for dinner tonight and decided to try a new appetizer. We all like such different things so it’s sometimes hard for us to decide what to get, but Hubby, T, and I all like shrimp so we ordered the Wild West Shrimp. This is the menu description: A generous portion of crispy, batter-fried popcorn shrimp tossed with sliced cherry peppers, garlic butter and Prairie Dust™. … Continue Reading →

7 Easy Marinades, Sauces and Rubs for Fabulous Grilled Meals This Summer

Summer is still in full swing and sitting on the patio while grilling dinner and sipping a cold drink is a great way to relax and enjoy the season. Using marinades, sauces, and rubs is an easy way to change-up the same foods you are used to grilling and boost the flavor. While you can mix them up from scratch, it is even easier to get some help from McCormick … Continue Reading →
Grain Bowl Ingredients to Mix and Match #StoredBrilliantly Plus Giveaway!

Grain Bowl Ingredients to Mix and Match #StoredBrilliantly Plus Giveaway!

I love grain bowls for lunch. However, to prep one each day is a lot more work and dishes. Instead, prepare all of your ingredients once a week. This way you can mix and match the ingredients throughout the week in just a couple of minutes and there are far fewer dishes to wash daily. The new Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE (This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Rubbermaid® #StoredBrilliantly ) containers are perfect … Continue Reading →
