Don’t you just love it when you feel like you could
just reach out and take a bite?

Well, that is what my friend said when she saw this photo I took of the dinner I made.

I think cooking is often easier than baking, very little measuring required-guessing works


Shrimp Scampi is a classic dish that can be served ANYTIME! 


It’s no secret shrimp dishes are some of my favorites, and this one is not only a classic dish, it’s simple to make and makes a great appearance, so serve it to impress…


I know I have, and it’s WOWed many!



Let’s begin:

Cook a pound of angel hair pasta-Barilla is my favorite.

In a frying pan, put butter and olive oil

add in the minced garlic

Add these shrimp and turn to cook evenly

Pour in the wine and lemon juice, and cook shrimp to 120°.

Pour shrimp and sauce over pasta, add oregano, salt, and pepper to taste. 

Then top with Romano (or Parmesan0) Cheese.
