Easy Shrimp Alfredo and Seared Brussels Sprouts! A cheesy, garlicky delicious pasta packed with shrimp, and lighter homemade Alfredo sauce. Great weeknight dinner!
Got these Huge Wild Argentine Red Shrimp at Publix on sale at just $7.99 a pound the other day while shopping with the mother-in-law! Few times a year they have them and I’m always on the lookout.
These Argentine Red Shrimp are wild-caught in the Western South Atlantic area and are known as the sweetest shrimp on earth. My other favorite is the Florida Pink Shrimp if I find them.
This was our casual dinner, but it looked good enough for a quick photoshoot. Get tired of using just white plates for presentations, decided to go BOLD – gorgeous BLUE plates I’ve got from HomeGoods for like $2 each. I AM a Bargain Queen!
These Argentine Red shrimp are a Jumbo size!

My Favorite Light Olive Oils! I use them in most recipes since they don’t have any flavor to them.
I have recently painted few background boards for my Food Photography.
