Shrimp & Sausage Cajun “Pasta” with Butternut Squash

I’m trying something new, Foodies. No more than two paragraphs before we get to the recipe! I used to be a “tell your entire life story before giving up the recipe” sort of person. That is…until I started using other people’s recipes. Sorry, but it’s ERKY to have to scroll through 17 pages of musings in order to get the …

5 Shrimp Recipes to Satisfy Your “Inner Bubba”

So I hear that May 10 is “National Shrimp Day” here in the United States. International Foodies: Do your countries have this same propensity to allow every day to be multiple holidays dedicated to all things – exciting to mundane?

Selby’s Jerk Shrimp & Quinoa

Every once in a while someone sends me a food picture that is just…”screen-lick-worthy.” Such is the case with Selby’s Jerk Shrimp & Quinoa. I mean look at it. I know from VAST experience from island food that it has a kick to it (so proceed with caution if you don’t do well with even slightly spicy foods). And the …

Nik’s Shrimp Faux Fried Rice

True fact: What you see above? I made in 20 minutes this morning while the kids were feeding the dog. And it will be my lunch probably for the entire week. This is the story of how a simple bag of frozen cauliflower became so much more… (By the way to all my Facebook Foodies, this is the take-out swap …

Alethea’s Shrimp & Quinoa

Well, folks. It was bound to happen. With two kids in public school, some noxious germ was bound to find its way into my body. My immune system is fighting hard, though! So while I am down for the count, I thought I’d share some Foodie submissions. I just love it when you guys email me with pictures and recipes …
