Unfortunately Meyer lemons aren't available at my grocer, but since they are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange, I just use a regular lemon and a couple teaspoons of orange juice to add the sweetness. These are so delicious and easy, and make an elegant presentation for a luncheon or as an appetizer. The key is to use good quality cra"

Really a delicious, easy shrimp and pasta recipe! I didn't have any penne on hand so substituted linguini, sauteed some mushrooms with the garlic before adding shrimp, and added some chopped steamed asparagus when adding the shrimp back to the creamy sauce. Turned out fabulous!"

This is an easy an delicious recipe for macaroni salad any time of year. I was tired of the ones that are overly thick and gooey with too much mayo or egg in it.

This is a delicious blend of flavors and so easy. I had been searching for a recipe for a true Mexican "Coctel de camaron" and stumbled across this one. Unfortunately when I wanted to make it, no scallops were available, so I left out the Clamato juice and just used about 3/4 lb of jumbo shrimp. Of course it did not have quite the soupy quality "

I am always baffled when a person writes a review on a recipe that contains ingredients they don't particularly care for. If you are not a big fan of maple syrup or bacon...why try a turkey recipe that clearly involves both? Personally my family thinks bacon should be its own food group. Regardless, I did a "test run" on this with a baking chic"
