About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


Here's the Dish: Dirty Shrimp and Rice

Just one note of caution on this recipe ~ it's pretty hot! The heat can be toned down by using less of the cayenne pepper. As you know, I love shrimp, and this is a really quick and easy way to fix it. I usually serve this over brown rice, because it really soaks up the tasty butter beer sauce. Enjoy!
Dirty Shrimp
2 lbs shrimp, shelled and deveined
4 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup beer
1. Saute garlic and herbs in butter until garlic is slightly browned.
2. Add shrimp, stirring constantly, until shrimp are pink and done.
3. Pour in beer, simmer 1 minute more, and serve!
