New Recipe to Share

Super easy recipe for those very busy nights

BBQ Shrimp and Pineapple Kabobs
*courtesy of Kraft Kitchens

6 large shrimp (1/4 lb.), peeled, deveined
6 chunks fresh pineapple (1-1/2 inch)
6 squares green pepper (1-1/2 inch)
6 wedges onion (1-inch wide)
1/4 cup KRAFT Teriyaki Sesame Ginger Barbecue Sauce

PREHEAT grill to medium-high heat. Using four long wooden skewers, place two skewers, side-by-side on clean work surface.
THREAD shrimp onto each set of two parallel skewers alternately with the pineapple, peppers and onions. (You will have two kabobs.)
GRILL kabobs 4 to 6 min. or until shrimp turn pink, turning and brushing occasionally with the barbecue sauce. Serve over hot cooked rice.
~Double the recipe to feed four. Add a fresh garden salad and you've got a great,healthy meal.


So this blog has been sorely lacking over the last few weeks for this I apologize. Life has taken me on yet another wild roller coaster ride. Lots of family "stuff" going on that has just about pushed me over the edge....but I'm resilient and I'm not giving up without a fight :O)

Got some good news though; with all the chaos I have decided to "down-size". I'm putting all my efforts into my Etsy shop. That being said I know that my shop is in need of a face lift...I've pulled the chocolate items due to the extreme tempuratures here in north Texas, I'll be adding new "shipping friendly" items for the summer months. Cookies,brownies and fudge are on the horizon. I will also be working on taking better pictures for the site; this just might kill me. Taking the pictures will require me to be baking up a storm.....here's where the good part comes in for you

As I bake and re-take the pics I will be having lots of extra goodies laying around (not good for my waistline) which in turn means EDIBLES GIVEAWAY....stay tuned for the first round.Tell your friends!
