Simple Shrimp and Garlic Pasta

We all have those days when you feel like you don't have any time for cooking, but you still want to have a delicious dinner. This recipe fits that description perfectly. This pasta is very easy to make. You can use any noodles you have at home. Make sure to use fresh or frozen basil. I sometimes freeze my basil with a little bit of olive oil and it comes in handy for recipes like this. If you don't like shrimp, I've had this plenty of times without any protein. Leftovers heat up pretty well, but the basil will look less appetizing on day 2 (the taste is still great though).

No-Bake Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake

Last summer my neighbor introduced me to this cheesecake. She had been experimenting with it for a while and brought one over to a barbecue. I love the original recipe as it is. The only remnant is a snippet from a magazine along with her notations. Though the origin of this recipe is unknown, this cheesecake is amazing! Not only can you avoid turning you kitchen into a sauna this summer while making desserts, but your taste buds will be very grateful.

Cinnamon Spiced Lamb Stew

Lamb dishes are often one of my favorite meat options. Though I don't cook lamb that often I always love it when I do (or when someone else does). This stew doesn't require any exotic ingredients but the flavor is delicious and reminds me of a Moroccan stew. This is not the kind of dish you can throw together, so plan ahead if you're going to make it. The meat needs to sit in some spices for 24 hours before cooking. However, the recipe itself is not very difficult. Serve the stew with couscous for added Moroccan flair.

Salted Chocolate Caramel Crackers

It's almost Passover again and my family is looking for new ways to mask matzoh. I have never been a fan and have always considered matzoh to be a cardboard-like, strictly symbolic, barely edible food. So when this recipe turned out being delicious I knew this was a winner. How can you not love anything covered in caramel and chocolate? I have never tried this with actual Saltines or other crackers, but I am sure it would be just as good. If you enjoy salted caramel or sea salt chocolate flavors you will enjoy this treat.

Texas Caviar

I've been slacking off and not cooking or baking that much this past month. Luckily I have very inspiring family members who also love to cook. This recipe was first tried by my mom and came highly recommended. If you enjoy fresh Tex-Mex flavors, you will love this dish. I can eat it by the spoonful, but when I'm around other people I serve it with tortilla chips, pita chips, or pita wedges. This is extremely easy to make and the flavor won't let you down.
