I’ve noticed something over the past few years. I love to cook. As the main hunter and gatherer of the family, I cook and meal-plan out of necessity. But, over the years, a little hobby has developed and I am loving it.

I don’t create a lot of recipes as I tend to be a follower when it comes to ingredients. That said, I’ve been getting a bit more brave and creative in the kitchen.



I just made shrimp tacos. This is not a drill!!! Will blog after I stuff my face. ????

Last month, I made some delicious popcorn shrimp tacos using a recipe I found online. They were really good but I knew I wanted to make some changes for the next go around. This time, I am sharing my recipe with you!

Popcorn Shrimp Tacos with Avocado-Lime Slaw

The best part about this meal is the avocado-lime slaw. You can make it and eat it right away, but if you have time to let it sit for a few hours I highly recommend it. It’s so tasty!

Once you’ve made the slaw, all you need to do is bake the shrimp and put it all together. I think it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing a lot of popcorn shrimp tacos this summer!
