Valentines Cooking

Good Morning yall! Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Last night I cooked up a 4 course meal for 7 people in my family! (11 including kids) Whew! it was a lot of work but everything turned out amazing and I had a blast! Cooking has really started to become a hobby of mine. I just love going to restaurants and recreating meals. Drew is pretty spoiled haha.  I thought I would share three recipes that take very little time to prepare and taste like they took you all day!

Louisiana Hot Shrimp- This stuff was amazing and does have a kick to it

1 1lb of  peeled uncooked shrimp( I got the big guys)
1/2 cup of olive oil
2 1/2 tablespoons of chili powder
3 teaspoons of garlic powder
3 teaspoons of course black pepper
4 teaspoons of Louisiana hot sauce
1/2 stick of butter
4 hoagies

Cut bread in wedges and butter, then set aside.
In a large skillet, ccombine all the ingredients, when butter is melted add the shrimp. Saute the shrimp until done. About 3-5 min. do not overcook. Toast up the bread in the oven. Place shrimp on top of bread and then pour the sauce over the shrimp.

Roasted Asparagus with Pine Nuts and Shaved Parmesan – this is super easy, but a great combination of flavors

2 bundles of asparagus
1 block of Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 pkg of pine nuts

Toast pine nuts in oven and set aside. Preheat oven at 425. Pour olive oil over asparagus. Cook for about 5-7 mim, it cooks very fast at this high heat. Remove from over and sprinkle the pine nuts and shave Parmesan over the top. Seriously good!

Bananas Foster- not only does this taste amazing, it smells AHHmazing

(the love is red icing i wrote and then froze)

3 bannans cut into circles
1/4 cup of butter
2/3 cup of brown sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons of Captain Morgan Rum
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon of ground cinammon
optional- 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and rum. Bring the mixture to a bubbling simmer and place bananas and walnuts in. Cook for about 2-3 min. Serve over ice cream, bread pudding, cheesecake or a puff pastery.

Happy Wednesday XOXO

    These recipes look amazing! I love asparagus but my fiance isn't a huge fan, but I bet he'll love them if I add nuts and cheese.;) can't wait to try it out.
