“Mexican-Style” Shrimp Scampi with Cilantro-Lime Rice

Traditionally Shrimp Scampi is an Italian dish with a beautiful balance of lemon and butter. It’s a delicate balance to achieve, but when you do, it’s nothing short of extraordinary. With perfectly cooked shrimp, tossed with pasta cooked to al dente, finished with some freshly chopped parsley, it is a decadent dish to enjoy. I wanted to play around and expound on the flavors of Shrimp Scampi but play an homage to Hispanic flavors.

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Wheatberry Stuffing

One of the veggies I got my husband to really love is acorn squash! Especially when it’s stuffed. The first time I made it, I believe it was stuffed with mushrooms and another type of squash and some cheese. Well I decided I wanted to spoil my husband (and all of you) with a super classy stuffed acorn squash dish with all kinds of yummy fillings.
