Skinny – Caramel Frappuccino

The following is a repost of what is becoming one of our most popular recipes. After a 2015 trip to the nearest Starbucks, which was at the time almost 50 miles away we did a calorie re-make of one of our favorite drinks Caramel Frappuccino. Behold…… Skinny – Caramel Frappuccino !

Cr猫me Br没l茅e

I have never in all my years had a Cr猫me Br没l茅e! Where has this dessert been all my life?

Creme Brulee

Cr猫me Br没l茅e also known as burnt cream, is a dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a layer of hardened caramelized sugar. It is customarily served slightly chilled; the heat from the caramelizing process tends to warm the custard slightly leaving a cool center.

Shrimp Scampi Pizza

If you are looking for a unique pizza, Shrimp Scampi Pizza is it!!

Shrimp Scampi Pizza

Valentines Day is just around the corner, and of course, romantic recipes are all over the internet. Shrimp Scampi pops up a lot. So that got me to thinking…..I know dangerous right!!

Tim and I are not real big on large romantic gestures but we do enjoy a nice meal, and we LOVE PIZZA!!!!!! A combination of two yummy things, how could you go wrong. Let’s just say you can’t.

Shrimp Scampi Pizza

I looked for Shrimp Scampi Pizza on Pinterest, and while they all looked good, they were all missing the pasta. You can’t have Shrimp Scampi with pasta; it’s unheard of!

We added it, and I don’t wanna brag or anything, but it was a stroke of genius. Shrimp is the star of the show, but the pasta was hardly second fiddle. I think they were co-stars.
Juicy, succulent shrimp, with white wine, garlic, shallot, butter sauce, tossed with angel hair pasta, super yummy. But put all of that on a crispy pizza crust…..delicious!!!
