1. mix marinade 2. Deshell and detail rinsed shrimp. Place in marinade toss so that all are coated. Let sit while you start vegetables and pasta  3. Cook pasta according to directions on box. Rinse with cold water and set to side.  4. Place olive oil in wok over medium heat. Add onions and cook until turning translucent.  5. Add mushrooms sauté 1 minute.  6. Add wine, soy sauce, chicken stock and shrimp with marinade.  7. Cook until shrimp are pink and cooked through.  8. Add pasta and carrots. Let's simmer until warmed through.

Fall Off The Bone Ribs

This is so easy and your family will love them. We had no leftovers. 
These are slow cooked and so easy it feels like you are cheating. Get your crock pot out and get ready to impress your family. 
1 1/2 rack of pork ribs  1 1/2 tbsp your choice bbq rub  1/2 cup your choice bbq sauce. 
1. Cut your ribs so that they will fit in your crock pot. I just cut mine in half.  2. Cover your ribs with rub. 3.  Place ribs in crock pot. 
4. I cooked my ribs on high for 4 1/2 hours if you need to cook them all day while you are out cook them on low. 
5. Take out of crock pot and put in a baking dish bone side down. Use tongs and use caution so your meat does not fall off the bones. 
6. Cover meat side with bbq sauce using a basting brush. 
7. Put in oven and broil on high five minutes. 
8. Serve with sides and enjoy the compliments from your family. It was a great dinner with my family.

German Potatoes

I have no idea why these are called German. I learned the recipe years ago and they were called German potatoes so the name has stuck. This is a super easy recipe. 

4 large red potatoes  2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 large sweet onion 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce  1tsp garlic powder  Salt to taste 
1. Place oilive oil in skillet, heat until it sizzles when you drip a bit of water.  2. Cube potatoes and place in skillet.  3.  Slice onion into slivers place in skittle and cover with lid.  4.  Stir every few minutes until potatoes are tender. About 15 minutes. Keep an eye and adjust your heat to keep things from burning.  6. Add one tbsp of Worcestershire sauce at a time and mix.  7. Add garlic and salt mix and serve hot.

Midori Spring Matcha

Ok so I have to admit. This is my first experience with matcha. I like green tea so I figured I would like matcha. It is so hot right now there was no way I am drinking hot tea so I played around, And came up with a smoothie and a soda.

The soda is so easy and it was really refreshing. I try and walk a couple or so miles in the morning with I friend. So when I get home to actually get ready for the rest of my day. I am super hot. So I made this to refresh myself while I got ready this morning.  1 tsp matcha  2 tbsp hot water  1 tsp raw honey  1 bottle of sparkling water  Ice 1/4 of a lime
With a whisk mix matcha, honey and water until smooth.  Put ice in your glass and pour matcha mix over ice.  Squeeze lime juice from line into glass.  Top off your glass with sparkling water.  Enjoy!!  I really liked this. It was a great cool off from the morning walk. 
My smoothie was super easy. Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth. 
1 tsp matcha powder  1/2 cup of frozen pineapple  1/2 cup al…
