One Skillet Cajun Pasta Shrimp so easy to make!

Are you in need of an easy dinner idea? Cajun Shrimp Sausage is sure to hit the spot. It's loaded with shrimp, sausage, and pasta in a creamy cheesy cajun fontina sauce. It's so delicious and easy to assemble. It's pure and simple comfort food at it's best. 

It was the perfect way to break in the new pan Lorna gave me for Christmas! I'm absolutely in love with porcelain glazed cast iron at the moment, and I understand why my Granny always loved hers so much.

Cajun Shrimp Sausage Pasta is one of my easy go to 30 Minute Meals that helps ensure at the end of a busy day we still have time to sit down and enjoy dinner together as a family. It's amazing how much conversation happens in our house each night at the dinner table. I think it's one of the most important rituals we do in our house.

Here's how I  make Cajun Shrimp Sausage Pasta...

Nectarine Salad With Prosciutto Blue Cheese And Lemon Rosemary Thyme Vinaigrette

Nectarine Summer Salad With Prosciutto Blue Cheese And Lemon Rosemary Thyme Vinaigrette from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Grammies in town so she took the kids last night so Colt and I were left home alone..

So when Colt came home we hit the kitchen for a date night in. We scavenged through the fridge and came up with this years summertime salad must have: Nectarine Summer Salad With Prosciutto Blue Cheese And Lemon Rosemary Thyme Vinaigrette.

Whew that was a mouthful! 

Sorry, not sorry for the long name but I wanted to make sure you understood just how amazing this salad is. The dressing is light and fragrant followed by the sweet bites of nectarine, thin salty slices of prosciutto and sharp, salty bites of blue cheese.

Every bite was an amazing mouthful of flavor explosion.

If blue cheese isn't your thing feta or goat cheese would make a great substitute. Chow down, mow down, devour! It won't last long.

Broccoli Salad

The best crunchy Broccoli Salad recipe in a light sesame seed dressing with cheddar cheese and sunflower seeds is the perfect salad for any gathering including Thanksgiving and Christmas from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

The recipe for Broccoli Salad comes from my sweet seester-in-law. Well, it's actually adapted because I can't find the original recipe she gave me 15 years ago, but let me tell you this is a must make.

I decided to make Broccoli Salad last weekend because the minute the weather becomes warm and sunny I crave salads, barbecues, and dinner on the patio so we did all 3 before the rain came.

The boys had a friend over for a sleepover, and they all gave the broccoli salad double thumbs up other then LJ, he said I lost half a thumb because I added cheese.. He's now decided he likes cheese but only when it's grated, we'll see how long that lasts.

As most of you know I don't cater to picky eating so I left him to pick out his little orange cubes of cheese, and share them with his brother.

Just for the record he did tell me I would have gotten two thumbs up if I didn't add cheese.

This is one of those salads that can be made ahead of time or the night before and becomes even better with age as the vinaigrette soaks into the broccoli softening it just slightly.

The perfect Broccoli Salad for all of those summer barbecues, gatherings and picnics.
