  1. My husband will not like the yogurt ... could I use sour cream? Or maybe more mayo ? Thanks
  2. How can I find a saved recipes


  1. This was excellant - my husband raved about it. I used fresh tiger shrimp.
  2. This is the BEST psta salad I have ever made! I did add a few radishes too.
  3. I loved this easy pasta and shrimp salad. I made this as written, and the flavors were really good together, especially after chilling. I used the smaller frozen shrimp, what I call popcorn shrimp because I like it better than canned. A really lovely salad. Thanks for sharing your recipe. :-)
  4. I love this salad. I doubled the recipe, used large frozen shrimp I cut into bite size pieces and then added 2 tb of cocktail sauce. I will be making this again, it's a keeper.
  5. This is a great refreshing salad. I mixed the dressing ingrediants earlier in the day to give the flavors time to blend and mellow. All that dry mustard certainly adds a zing! I put a little dill weed in the dressing too and added slice black olives to the salad. Yum! Thanks Gingerbear!


  1. This one is definitely a keeper. I tweaked it a bit by using fresh shrimp, fresh garlic, adding grape tomatoes, using lemon pepper instead of plain and adding some shrimp cocktail sauce. It was really wonderful. Two pounds of shrimp and a pound of pasta makes a huge party salad - that doesn't last long.
  2. This is fabulous. I was never convinced that low-fat yogurt could taste good in a salad, but this converted me. I had half a zucchini left in the fridge, so I tossed it in too (I put the zucchini in the pasta water for a minute to get rid of the "raw" taste). I've made this twice now, the second time I used fennel instead of celery, and both times, it turned out wonderfully. Absolutely fantastic recipe. Thanks so much!!!


Me and my boyfriend have been together for 11 years now. We live on 40 acres and have 6 dogs and 4 Tennessee Walkers. We both work a lot of hours so there is never enough time in a day to get everything done. I absolutely love the outdoors. I also enjoy lifting weights, reading and playing with all of my beautiful animals. I absolutely love, love and love to cook. I like to cook a variety of things and also like love to bake. I like to just get in the kitchen and experiment with different things. If something does not turn out for me such as pie crust or gravy I will keep trying until I can make it work. Only problem is, when I finally make it work it may not work again the time after that. It is fun though and I do consider myself a pretty good cook for the most part. I also love slow cooker recipes. Those are my most favorite in the winter months.
