Grilled Shrimp

Today for dinner, thought I'd make it nice and simple. Nice Big Beautiful Shrimp smothered in spices and toasting on the Grill... ;)

For me, Shrimp doesn't taste good unless it has some nice smoked paprika in it.

Grabbed this recipe from this months edition of Cooking Light.

Ultimate Cherry Pie

Adapted recipe from Sugar Plum

This is the first time I ever made a cherry pie using real cherries as I've made it once before using that canned stuff. This is a fantastic cherry pie. I'll be honest, I never buy cherry pie from the stores because it either taste like mush or the flavor of the cherries is too sour. I like a nice solid hard cherry crunch and nice sweetnest to my pie. My favorite pie to make is Apple and I think it will always be my favorite but since it is berry season I gave this one a try and loved the results. I loved the use of Cake Flour for the dough, made it taste like a cookie wafer. :)

BBQ Pork Chops

I never give up on a dish or particular meat that I can't get right. For some reason, Pork Chops have never been a specialty of mine. That is until I came across a very tasty recipe in Bon Appetit this week. BBQ style pork chops using a nice marinade to sit on the chops for 30 minutes outside of frig prior to cooking, which I think is what brought this meat so much flavor. It has all the ingediants I love to cook with, Garlic, Soy Sauce, Brown get the idea. I'll get recipe link location soon.
