I am excited to be back at home, where I can be a little more creative with recipes.

It sure has been a long year of cooking on the fly in Mississippi and hoping for the best when it comes to the lighting or the ability to get in the kitchen when I want to conjure up one of my favorite recipes to share with Y’all.

It’s a recipe that one of my dearest friends Fran made. Fran was always cooking up a storm in her kitchen, and I loved every minute of it. Unfortunately, my best friend passed away last January 20th, 2017. I will always remember her humor and delicious tasting food.

    These crab stuffed Jumbo shrimp were so good that I made them again the next day. Do you think I could freeze a batch? I’m not sure how well the shrimp will fare. Thanks for another excellent recipe.
