We love having new members and fresh ideas.  If you are a food blogger and would like to join in the fun just leave a comment below or email me at with your blog name and url and I will be happy to add you to our facebook group.

Garlic and Olive Oil

This dish has a LOT of garlic.  I'm a huge garlic lover and don't believe that there is ever a thing as too much garlic.  The only other ingredients in this dish is the shrimp, seasonings and the pasta.  I served it up with a simple chopped salad and a loaf of rustic bread.  I kept dessert very easy as well serving up a No Bake Banana Coconut Cream Pie.

It was a very casual evening with dear friends who we don't get to see often enough and wanted to be able to spend as much time as possible visiting.  This was a perfect menu for that purpose.
