Banana nut muffins

My 15 year old daughter has been bugging me to make dessert.  She really loved the Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Bars that I made a couple weeks ago.  But I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand so that wasn’t going to happen.  About the only thing I’ve got plenty of in my kitchen […]

Shrimp lettuce wraps

Since joining a neighborhood co-op, I have been challenged to use the food I get to come up with new dishes to serve my family.  This is especially challenging because I tend to get stuck in a rut and fix the same things over and over again.  The cool thing about the co-op is that […]

Shrimp and pasta with tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach

Today was my 20th wedding anniversary!  So, instead of going out to dinner, I wanted to make a nice meal at home, something a little fancier than what we usually have.  This shrimp and pasta dish was perfect for that and super easy to make.  And it turned out beautifully and delicious! a>img { z-index: […]
