    Walnut Melon Shrimp

    This Walnut Melon Shrimp recipe is the perfect sweet seafood dish. The recipe combines shrimp, honeydew, cantaloupe, walnuts, soy sauce, and honey. I enjoy serving it over a bed of rice with a side of vegetables for a tasty dinner. We have made this walnut melon shrimp with just honeydew and it is equally as good. The honeydew, shrimp and walnut combination is really the key to this dish. It’s one of our household favorite recipes. Ingredients you will need: 1 lb. of shrimp (fresh or frozen) 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts 1 cup of chopped honeydew 1 cup of chopped cantaloupe 1/8 cup of soy sauce (can be substituted…

    Simple Guacamole

    If you ask me you can never go wrong with some delicious homemade guacamole. It’s crazy to me that about 3 years ago I always thought I wasn’t a huge fan of avocados.
