Peach Cobbler with Sugar Cookie Crust

Peach Cobbler

 

Next to Red Velvet ANYTHING, Peach Cobbler is my favorite dessert. There’s a bit of false truths out there about this masterpiece though. The main one is that it is time consuming to make. Ain’t nobody got time for that! This recipe is not only easy, but it has a SUGAR.COOKIE.CRUST. Let that marinate… a sugar cookie crust y’all. This is actually a collaboration of my aunt’s peach cobbler recipe and a sugar cookie recipe. I’m not going to lie to you, I think her crust recipe ONLY works for her blessed hands so I had to improvise, hence the sugar cookie crust. But let me tell you, this combination is BAE. I don’t make this as often as my family would probably like because…Pinterest LOL. Read More →

Shrimp Po Boys

The other day, I had a taste for some spicy shrimp but didn’t want to deal with all of the steps of making pasta and sauce. So, I relied on an old favorite I hadn’t made in a while. Enter Shrimp Po Boys!

What you’re gonna need:

Italian bread
EZ peel RAW shrimp (I used 2 bags which is 2 pounds)
Olive Oil
Cajun Seasoning (I use this mixture Click here
Lettuce
Ranch Dressing
Cheese of your choice (I use provolone)

Thaw shrimp. DO NOT put shrimp in hot water. They will be gin to cook. Put frozen shrimp in a bowl and run cold water over shrimp. Let sit for about 20 minutes or so. Shrimp will be ready to peel, no one likes rubbery shrimp.
Peel shrimp and discard shells.shrimp

Rinse shrimp again with cold water to get rid of any tiny shell pieces.

Pour about 1 tablespoon of olive oil on shrimp and add 1 tablespoon of cajun seasoning on shrimp. Toss to coat. I use approximately 1 tablespoon per pound of shrimp. This goes for the oil and the seasoning.

Pre-heat skillet on medium high heat. Add shrimp. In the meantime, turn your oven on broil. After 2 minutes, turn shrimp over. Depending on how hot your skillet is, it may be less that 2 minutes. You can tell when its time to flip when the edges of the shrimp start to curl a bit. Cook on other side for 2 minutes or less. Remove shrimp from pan and transfer to a bowl. For the love of God, do NOT overcook the shrimp. They will actually continue to cook a little in the bowl.

Slice open your Italian roll and add a couple of slices of cheese to one side. Place in the oven until cheese is melted. Add shrimp, ranch, and lettuce. SIDE NOTE: The Ore Ida Bold & Crispy Zesties are BAE. Also for a cheaper option WalMart’s seasoned fries are REALLY Good!

Another Side Note: You may sub the shrimp with chicken if you are not about that seafood life.

Not So Dirty Rice

Every now and then, I try to male something a bit healthy for the tribe. What we have here is Not So Dirty Rice. I use brown rice, veggies, and turkey sausage. This ends up being a very easy and filling dish, and the kids love it…even with all of the veggies hidden in there. You can customize it to your liking and diet. I included some other alternatives throughout the recipe.
