Rosemary Shrimp Skewers With Romesco Sauce

Rosemary Skewers With Romesco Sauce
Who doesn’t love brunch, and not just for the Mimosas and a yummy Bloody Mary! When I had a Brunch recently I wanted to serve the shrimp a little different than the usual cocktail; a way that would still impress, could be made in advance, be without much effort and still taste delicious. I remembered a shrimp dish I made a long time ago using rosemary stalks as the skewers. My garden still has lots of rosemary. I also had just made a big batch of roasted red peppers… Presto, the dish came together!!! Don’t you love when that happens? Continue reading

And with the addition of vanilla they became our favorite weekend pancakes. Sometimes we add chocolate chips; sometimes it’s sliced bananas, strawberries or blueberries. They’re as easy to make as they are to eat! Enjoy!    Continue reading

I am lucky to have the ‘Love of My Life’ come home almost every day for lunch, so we can share my creations together. Today we started our lunch with a hearty yet healthy salad. Meatless but full of flavor!
