I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
Happy Monday to you all! I hope the summer is treating you very kindly!
I don't cook shrimp that often for two reasons. The first is because I'm the only one in my family who likes it, gosh! And the second is because for the longest time it has been intimidating to me. But in the last few months I've come to realize that it's really easy to make, especially when you use this recipe. The one thing I've learned about cooking shrimp is to be careful not to overcook it so that it doesn't come out rubbery. If you have any other shrimp-cooking tips, do share! I can't get enough, and my family will learn to like it by golly!
