These lighter meals can also be prepared in whole or in part ahead of time. This makes it easy to get lunch or dinner on the patio table in record time.

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.

Recently I received a Power Pressure Cooker to review. I have never used a pressure cooker before so this was all totally new to me. Hubby has more of an old fashioned pressure cooker that he uses for canning, but I don’t mess with that one at all.
