  1. Really a nice recipe. Will make this again!
  2. I made this recipe last night but didn't have Basil, so I substituted 1 tbsp of Oregano and 1 tbsp of Thyme for the 2 tbsp's of Basil and upped the Cayenne Pepper to 3/4 tsp and used Red Pepper since I didn't have the Cayenne, and it was a HIT. Thanks for the idea, i was growing tired of the same ole grilled shrimp with garlic pepper. Tasted great!!!
  3. I made these recently and they are awesome!!!
  4. My friend sent me a recipe from Allrecipes and we made it last nite for our belated valentine dinner. The leftovers tasted even better the next day cold.


<img src=""> After growing up in central Wisconsin, I moved to California and spent my 20's and part of my 30's there. I've since moved to the east coast to a small village in Northern Virginia - a huge change! We moved here mainly so we could live in an area better suited to raising children and closer to family. Although it's an adjustment, we really love it here. My husband and I were married in Feb 2003 and had our first daughter, Kylie, in Aug 2004. Our second daughter, Katie, was just born in July 2006. I was an HR Director until I became Mom, and I wouldn't trade this job for anything in the world! I began cooking when I became a stay-at-home-mom, mostly out of necessity. We used to eat out for every meal...and I do mean EVERY meal. When our income was cut in half after my "early retirement", eating out was no longer an option. Therefore, if I was going to continue to eat all the delicious food I was accustomed to, I was going to have to...oh, the horror!!!...COOK IT MYSELF!!! I had grown up baking with my mom, but hadn't actually baked in years and had always left the cooking to her. To my utter surprise and delight (not to mention my husband's SHOCK and delight)...I loved it! Then, to find Recipezaar...well, it's become a much loved hobby and something I'll surely do for the rest of my life! <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="" height="360" width="360"></embed><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="¤t=15590867.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:right;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:right;border-width: 0;" ></a>
