Spicy Shrimp Boil #ShrimpShowdown

Spicy Shrimp Boil |

I received products for this post, however all opinions are 100% my own. Get ready for some finger-licking fun!  Shrimp, potatoes, sausage and corn boiled together with lots of spice! Finger food at it’s finest! Three years ago, my good friend introduced my family to Frogmore Stew.  Being naive northerners, we had no idea exactly what “Frogmore” was but we were open to trying it.  We never looked back!  That was hands down one of the best … Continue reading →

Skinn Sausage and Corn Chowder www.lemonsforlulu.com

This chowder filled with sausage, corn and potatoes is so satisfying, you won’t even know it’s light! I just survived the great arctic freeze.  For the first time ever, I was happy I had that extra layer of fat (compliments of all those Christmas cookies) or I would’ve suffered an untimely frozen demise.  I must have had some sort of premonition as I was shoveling those extra cookies during the holidays, that someday I would be fighting for my … Continue reading →

Spinach and Pastina Soup

Sausage and Pastina Soup

  In my freezer I have 24 packs of butter.  Yes, you heard me.  I am in possession of 24 POUNDS of butter.  I like to stock pile baking ingredients, what can I say?  You never know when the baking mood will strike and I do NOT want to be caught without the necessary ingredients! To be fair, (to me), I come by my stock piling naturally.  My mom is the same way.  The biggest difference is she predominantly buys from the "scratch and … Continue reading →
