Crispy Cajun Shrimp Fettuccine


This recipe is a favorite of mine. I’m not always a fan of shrimp – neither is my mom. It honestly depends on the recipe. When I was a kid, we’d go to Cancun with my Aunt, Uncle and cousins, and I was obsessed with the coconut shrimp the resort served. We went there a couple years for spring break, and I was always so excited about this shrimp. For years after that I wouldn’t eat shrimp unless it was “coconut shrimp”. I know….bratty kid. ANYWAY – certain recipes have grown on me! THIS ONE IS PRETTY CLOSE TO #1.

Did I say it’s a favorite of mine? I’m talking crispy fried cajun shrimp on a bed of creamy fettuccine with a simple creamy sauce that really only requires 3 ingredients, unless you count the salt and pepper.

I have to say – looking at this recipe, you would not think it would take less than half an hour. It looks so good and only 20 minutes. The timing makes it a perfect weeknight dinner but you can still impress! I’m obsessed with those kind of meals.

But honestly, dinner couldn’t get any easier, and we’re talking 20 minutes tops before this dish will make its way onto your dinner table. So have at it!  Continue Reading “Crispy Cajun Shrimp Fettuccine”

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with a Cranberry Stuffing

A tasty pork tenderloin, stuffed with a cranberry stuffing.  Fancy enough for a small holiday gathering but easy enough for a casual any day dinner.    

It’s funny how in the spring, I can’t wait to ditch the oven and use the grill.  Because as soon as September rolls around, I’m thinking the exact opposite and the grill is left lonely so I can roast yet again.  There is just something comforting about this kind of meal. My mom told me last week how she was craving this dish – so yes, it’s July – this is definitely more of a fall recipe – but its DELICIOUS I just don’t even care.  Continue Reading “Roasted Pork Tenderloin with a Cranberry Stuffing”
