So, what do you do when a friend brings you a couple pounds of fresh Gulf shrimp? Of course frying them was the first thing that came to mind, but then I remembered a recipe from this month’s issue of Cooking Light – Gnocchi with Shrimp, Asparagus, and Pesto.
This is one of those easy-peasy recipes that is full of flavor. Be sure to visit Cooking Light for the recipe by clicking here. I’ll be back later in the week with more tasty treats to share. Have a great Sunday, everyone!
I prepared a spicy pork roast with rosemary potatoes and garlic green bean salad for dinner last night. My husband discovered these recipes this weekend while watching Sunny Anderson‘s show Cooking for Real on Food Network.
The spicy pork roast recipe called for cumin seeds. I already had ground cumin so I used that. Otherwise, I followed Sunny’s spicy pork roast recipe to the letter. Her green bean salad recipe called for 1/2 a red onion. Since I’m not a huge onion fan, I used 1/4 a red onion and that was plenty for me.
The verdict: Kevin rated last night’s dinner a perfect 10 and I would have to agree. It was delicious! The best pork I’ve made in a while. I made the sweet and sour sauce (sugar, OJ, red wine vinegar, and butter) even though I wasn’t sure we’d like it. It was great, but the pork is tasty enough that it doesn’t require a sauce. I’ll definitely make this again!
I have a lot to share today, so stay with me, okay? First, I just have to tell you about dinner last night. It was amazing! Kevin aka “The Grillmaster” grilled steaks last night while I prepared Spinach and Feta Potatoes and Greek salads. Oh, it was so delicious! Unfortunately, I cannot take the credit for the potato recipe. This Rachael Ray inspired dish comes from Liz’s Cooking Blog, which you should definitely check out if you’re looking for a tasty new recipe.
