Dolls,

I am so very excited about this post! My sister Roz (who is also my consultation, manager, personal chef and best friend) is an amazing cook! Anytime our family gathers for dinners, brunches and lunders (lunch and dinner) we do so at her place. This post features her homemade butter that I could not pass up sharing with you all.


The video is pretty self explanatory but to sum it up:

Ingredients:
1. Heavy cream
2. Seasoning for flavor (optional)

Directions:

1. Pour cream into mason jar/container.
2. Shake for 10-11 minutes.
3. Drain buttermilk and butter.
4. Season butter for flavor.
5. Enjoy!

Easy does it and you can now save money and a trip to the grocery store. This DIY is totally amazing and pretty, prim and proper approved.

Until next time,

Home + Living | My Tasty Shrimp Recipe

On occasion I share pictures of meals I’ve made via social media. I was recently asked to share some of my recipes and thought I’d give yesterday’s dinner a go.

Dinner consisted of shrimp, brown rice & steamed veggies (assorted peppers and asparagus). Ill admit…this was my 1st try at cooking asparagus. It came out just right! My trick was steaming them in my rice cooker while the rice was cooking. I live by this rice cooker…I can cook so many things in it besides rice including pasta, fish and veggies.

For the shrimp…I used the following ingredients

Oil the pan with olive oil then add the vegetable base and seasoned shrimp. I added capers and squeezed fresh lemon juice over the the shrimp just before turning the heat off.

And behold…a healthy tasty dinner!
