Spicy Firecracker Shrimp I recently bought a big bag of frozen jumbo shrimp from Costco. So, if you see a lot of shrimp recipes on here…that’s why. Shrimp are also my favorite seafood ingredients to cook with, cos they’re quick to cook, absorbent to any kind of spices and flavoring you use and they are super delicious! Chicken, Spinach and Cannellini Bean Quesadillas HEALTHY ALERT! We've put the cheesecake behind us, walked a thousand miles uphill backwards, and now we're ready for some tasty food that our bodies are going to thank us for. Chicken breast, spinach and cannellini beans equals lean protein, Popeye pectorals, and enough fiber to keep things moving in a positive manner, so to speak. We're not slouching on flavor here though folks. This recipe started out as a quesadilla filling and did indeed become that for hubby, but I enjoyed it as is, mounded in a bowl with a hefty dose of freshly cracked black pepper.

Pan Seared Honey Glazed Salmon with Browned Butter Lime Sauce - The Best Salmon I've Ever Eaten Share on Pinterest Okay so, I wrote a long post about the pure amazingness of this salmon then I went to cut and past it below the photo and forgot to paste it, posted it and lost my “paste.” Yeah the most frustrating and stupid thing ever!

Big Mac Sauce Recipe Big Mac Sauce Recipe The Big Mac from McDonald’s is perhaps one of the most well-known burgers across the country. What makes the Big Mac so special is the secret burger sauce that is used on it. The truth is you can make a sauce that tastes very similar to the sauce used on the Big Mac with just a few simple ingredients, several of which you may already have on hand. This sauce is just a combination of mayonnaise, French dressing, chopped onion, sweet pickle relish, vinegar, sugar, and salt.

Served with a light green salad and some fresh fruit and veggies (or perhaps this delicious fruit concoction) and this is a perfectly perfect meal.
