STRAWBERRY SWIRL CHEESECAKE BARS

STRAWBERRY SWIRL CHEESECAKE BARS

Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts but I rarely make it; I lack control when it comes to this creamy goodness.   Oddly enough, the first time I tasted Cheesecake I did not like it.   I was coming from a country where our desserts are not nearly as rich as what’s commonly found in the States, so I could only eat just a tiny spoonful at a time.  Since I’m not one to give up, I tried it again and...Read more …

COCONUT SHRIMP

COCONUT SHRIMP

Welcome to my corner of the web!  Please follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. This is one of my favorite ways to cook shrimp. Not only is it ridiculously simple to make but it’s a real treat. The sweetened coconut forms a crispy, crunch crust on the outside while the shrimp stays juicy and succulent on the inside.
