Shrimp in a spicy cream sauce to be served as an appetizer with hot-baked French bread (for dipping), or over fettuccini (as a not-so-light meal). Fun to prepare in front of guests as a prelude to a nice seafood dinner! Use any hot pepper you like, Cajun seasoning, or even hotter!
Rhubarb is sweetened and topped with a crunchy oat topping in this delicious and easy to make pie. A dear family friend always grew rhubarb and made this pie with her bounty each year. People are skeptical when they hear it is a rhubarb pie without strawberries but after only one taste, they understand the magic of this pie. Serve with vanilla ice cream for added sweetness!
