Spicy Cajun Shrimp over Linguini

Print PDF This is one of my husband’s very favorite dinners and it can be made in 20 to 30 minutes.

Fig, Goat Cheese, and Prosciutto Pizza

Print PDF Friday night in our house is pizza night. We sometimes have the more traditional pizzas like pepperoni, but sometimes, we like to get a little creative. This is one of those times. This pizza is so delicious. It is piled with fresh figs, creamy goat cheese, thinly sliced prosciutto and then garnished with a drizzle of balsamic reduction and wilted arugula. Enjoy! Oh, I almost forgot, give it a little mist of olive oil at the end to give it a nice shine :) Ingredients either a store bought or homemade crust (I’ll share my crust recipe soon) for the white sauce 4 ounces cream...

Pastelon

Print PDF Pastelon – (recipe and video tutorial follow) – This recipe is one that I had a ton of fun making because we had family in town from Puerto Rico (Tia Lucy and Joey). I had never actually had Pastelon until we made it together, I had only heard how delicious it was. I have also had quite a few requests for this recipe to my site and to my YouTube channel. So, I’m really glad that I was finally able to make it. Tia Lucy and Joey are super fun to cook with too. And it’s extra cool because Tia Lucy was a professional cook in Puerto Rico for almost 35 years...

It’s fairly quick and easy to make, pretty nutritious (I can’t call it totally nutritious, after all, it has mac and cheese in it :), but still) and really delicious. What more can you ask for? So,...
