Gather your little kitchen helpers and make dinner for mom. Mother’s Day is right around the corner and for those looking to pamper mom start with a well-deserved home-cooked meal with this Coconut Almond Shrimp recipe served with a marmalade dipping sauce. This recipe is flourless and uses almond meal, coconut and sprinkle of Colman’s mustard instead of flour. You’ll love the crispy texture and fabulous flavors of this gluten free mom’s day option. Happy Friday and weekend!
So Sorry I have been MIA since last week. I had Healthy Travel Magazine layouts due for our July issue, Fit & Well Birmingham copy due for our June issue and my latest and GREATEST new client for my media business! Not to mention, I have 3 kids, single mom, lower back disk issue, you get the drill…. Forgiven yet? I did get the amazing opportunity to go to Sedona to experience the amazing Lauberge De Sedona this weekend (typing on my flight). I slept 11 hours the first night and 12 hours the next. The spa was AMAZING!! I’ll tell you more in in the Sept issue of Healthy Travel magazine. Now..to the SHRIMP ALFREDO PIZZA recipe! It is AWESOME and SO easy! My 3 teens devoured it! Try it and you’ll LOVE it! Happy last week of school for us! LOVE Y’ALL! Alison
I can’t believe summer is here, but I am so glad. I have been ready for the kids to be out of school, and for all of the cool, fresh summer dishes, such as this Marinated Shrimp recipe. This shrimp dish is perfect for a summer appetizer, layered over some fresh greens or arugula or just served along some quinoa and grilled asparagus. It makes a great party, shower or summer afternoon recipe. It’s so easy, taking only 20 minutes to prepare. I used frozen, fresh shrimp which saved me even more time and money. For more ways to use frozen foods visit Easy Home Meals. This is the kind of recipe I crave this time of year, and my 3 kids love it too! By the way, this recipe was adapted from the May issue of Southern Living. See great storage containers for summer recipes at Shopbot.ca. I hope everyone has a great week ahead and happy summer! 🙂
People always ask me how do I get my three kids to eat so healthy. Being a busy but health-conscious mom, I always want to prepare meals using the best possible ingredients. I love using frozen foods in cooking because frozen fruits and vegetables are picked at the peak of ripeness and flash frozen, locking in beneficial nutrients. Frozen foods work great (and are budget-friendly) in many recipes such as in this one: Shrimp-Vegetable Quinoa Fried Rice. It’s a healthy, gluten-free main dish that is a twist on fried rice. It’s a favorite at our house, and it’s so quick and easy.
