on Weeknight Dinners: Buttery Scalloped Potatoes

Garlic-Angel Hair Pasta & Shrimp

When I was featured on the Gooseberry Patch blog almost two years ago, they asked me what my 30 minute go-to meal was. My answer was shrimp scampi! Now I am an early bird reviewer, and we still have scampi a few times a month. It’s so yummy and simple, we love...
