It was a huge crowd pleaser for adults and kiddos.

Clean and peel and butterfly shrimp leaving head on.
I'm sauce pan melt butter and add garlic, cook on low so that garlic does not brown, add ancho, salt and pepper. And remove from heat.

Brush shrimp with butter mixture and grill. Continue to brush during the cooking process until shrimp turn pick and meat is firm. This will not take long and be careful to not over cook.

Drizzle mayo and some chopped cilantro to serve.

Chili lime mayo
1 cup mayo
1 chipotle pepper
Juice of 1 lime
Small hand full cilantro with small stems left on
Salt and pepper

Sourdough Bread and Starter

Sourdough Bread and Starter
I have finally learned how to make sourdough bread. Ahhhhhh it's so satisfying!

I have made many loaves that were as hard as a brick and tasted.....well, it was hard to bite into them :)

And then I found Buzzby Bakes videos and everything has changed. I love how particular he is with each step. I followed his directions step by step and I am awarded with delicious bread. 


That being said, there is no reason for me to recreate the wheel, when he has done such a wonderful job.

For sourdough starter click here.
The rest of his recipes, and I tried most of them, are on you tube or his website.

Happy baking! I'd love to see pictures of your bread.

The most delicious nuts!
If you have friends coming over or just want something to snack on, these are perfect!

Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups (18-ounces) assorted unsalted nuts, I use the mix from Costco
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spread nuts out on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven until light golden brown, about 5 to 8 minutes. Be careful not to burn they can go quick.
In a large bowl, combine the rosemary, cayenne, sugar, salt and melted butter.

Thoroughly toss the toasted nuts in the spiced butter and serve warm. And once you try these, you will never want to stop :)

Fried goat cheese spinach salad

Fried goat cheese spinach salad
Simple. Delicious. Easy. Healthy.
Kids gobbled up this fried goat cheese spinach salad :) It's a win win in my book!
Warm goat cheese and toasted walnuts melt in your mouth, followed by crunchy spinach and apples. YUM!

Ingredients for the dressing:
Balsamic vinaigrette
1T balsamic vinegar
1T olive oil (more if you want it lighter in vinegar flavor)
1stp Dijon mustard
1tsp honey
Salt and pepper
Whisk or shake all ingredients to combine and set a side

Ingredients:
Baby spinach about 2 handfuls
¼ cup goat cheese
¼ cup panko bread crumbs
1T olive oil
1 small apple cut in slices
½ cup walnuts toasted and chopped

Make a disc with the goat cheese using your hands. Press and form the cheese until it comes together and you can shape. Splash a little water on the cheese so the panko can stick. Press the panko into the cheese so it forms a crust on all sides. Heat the oil in non stick pan and cook the cheese, just until the panko is brown and cheese is a little warm.
Toss the spinach with the vinaigrette, you don’t have to use it all, top with the apples, walnuts and fried goat cheese.
