Spaghetti Squash on the Half Shell

Spaghetti Squash is one of my favorite squash’s to cook with. When cooked, the squash has an incredibly unique texture that almost exactly replicates cooked pasta.

In this recipe, I replicated aContinue reading “Spaghetti Squash on the Half Shell”

Yum Yum Shrimp

This is an appetizer that Connor’s parents introduced to me a couple years ago that I’ve been obsessed with since.
