I received a sample of Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil. What a wonderful product to work with, we use a lot of olive oil in this household and we are very familiar with a good quality product. This one fits the bill. Full robust flavor with a smooth finish. I have had olive oils that are bitter and this one has none of that. A great olive oil that can be used in cooking but would also makes a magnificent salad dressing, a versatile olive oil and that is what I prefer work with.
In receiving this great olive oil I wanted to create a dish where it could shine through. This pasta was fantastic and has all the flavors and fullness of any restaurant quality meal. You will love how this olive oil adds the perfect balance to this wonderful meal. Enjoy!!
In a medium bowl, toss shrimp with lemon juice, ¼ cup parsley, crushed red pepper, garlic, salt and olive oil. Set aside to marinate.
In a large fry pan, saute green pepper and mushrooms in the butter until soft. Add shrimp and cook until just done, 3 minutes. Remove from pan.
Add the ¼ cup olive oil, anchovies, garlic, red pepper flakes and cook over medium low heat. Break up anchovies with a wooden spoon. Toss linguini in the oil until heated through. Season to taste. Then add the shrimp mixture. Drizzle with more olive oil if you like before serving and garnish with parsley.
This is my favorite time of year, we love Halloween here but with us just moving we will not be celebrating the same way at all. We usually have a big Halloween Howler. One thing I have always done is create a cocktail. Last year was Embalming Fluid, something that was served up in a test tube and handed out when people arrived. Last year we were mad scientists so it fit the theme.
Those teeth and glasses were awful!! But we had sooo much fun!!
Here we are as a family the year before!!
So I wanted to come up with a cocktail, something that if we had a party I could have served to my company when they entered our haunted home!! I thought a good name would be Heads Will Roll Cocktail and I wanted it whiskey based. I made it a bit sweet with the addition of Grand Marnier and Kahlua.
Sweet and creamy with a good hit of whiskey flavor, I felt this one warm me all the way down to my toes!! ENJOY!!

I have been watching lots of football lately and I am very aware of all the pink that is being worn in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So today I am doing this smoothie to support survivors of Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Research. Aardvark Paper Drinking Straws have gone pink in support of this great cause.Ten percent of the sales of these straws will be distributed evenly to benefit the Vera Bradley Foundation and the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation-Think Pink, for bread cancer education and awareness. The program will be ongoing through the 2014 calender year to benefit these wonderful causes. So get out there and show your support and even more importantly get yourself a mammogram. Early detection is the key!!
There is nothing like a healthy smoothie to start your day. I had to think pink but I also wanted something refreshing, so I paired strawberries and lemon yogurt together and wow what a burst of fresh flavor this smoothie has. I love the simplicity of a smoothie, no long list of ingredients, no having to trace down exotic ingredients. You probably have everything you need at home to make one right now. Change up the ingredients and enjoy a new one everyday. We always have frozen fruit in the freezer, it is a good way to use up fruit that may not be at it’s prime. When berries are still good but not quite as fresh as I like them I throw them in the freezer for later use in a smoothie. ENJOY!!
We all love smoothies here but Amber would be the number one fan!! She has them a lot and has enjoyed them also from McDonald’s. This smoothie is a copycat of a McDonald’s Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie.
It is a fun color and has delicious flavors. Easy to make of course also. I hope you enjoy it. Save yourself a trip and the expense going to McDonald’s and have one at home. Plus you know exactly what’s going into it. Enjoy!!
I love a good smoothie, so good for breakfast and so full of nutrition. It doesn’t seem like you are drinking something healthy though. It is like a milkshake to start off your day. We always have lots of fresh fruit around. Amber is so so on bananas unless you do something with them. In a smoothie she loves them.
This is such a classic combination of flavors but also wonderful in the summer when the strawberries are full of flavor. ENJOY!!!
