Spicy Cilantro-Garlic Shrimp

Pinterest is the one of the best places to find a variety of recipes.  One that I found the other day and had to try was a recipe for Spicy Cilantro-Garlic Shrimp.  I often cook with shrimp and definitely love spicy food.  The pin on Pinterest directed me to the recipe found here.  However, if you checkout the link at the bottom of the recipe it takes you to more detailed instructions at Hispanic Kitchen.  I followed the recipe from Hispanic Kitchen but added 2 1/2 teaspoons of chili paste as indicated in the first recipe.  I separated the shrimp into two parts wrapped in foil.  After letting the shrimp marinate for 45 minutes, I cooked the shrimp in the oven set at 325°F for approximately 25 minutes (make sure to keep an eye on it).   Next I set the oven to 350°F and cooked an additional 5 minutes.  Serve over rice or even as a Salad Topping/Dressing :-).  Thanks to Sonia Mendez Garcia and Sweet Daily Blog for sharing such a great recipe!!

Favorite Lashes – Mac Lashes No. 43

I wanted to share a quick post with you on my go to lashes…Mac’s No. 43 Lashes.  These are my go to lashes for pretty much everything.  If I had to give a runner up it would be Mac’s Lashes in No. 33 :).  I use the Dark Toned Duo Eyelash Glue.  I prefer the dark toned glue because it conceals the lash band.  Check out some pics below with these lovely lashes!  What are your favorite lashes?

Trinidad-Style Curry Chicken

I wanted to share with you today my love for cooking.  For a while I have been wanting to try this recipe I found on Pinterest.  Oh how we all love Pinterest!  Well the recipe is for Trinidad-Style Curry Chicken.  It was posted on Pinterest by Steve (The Black Peppercorn).  You can find his recipe here.  Thanks Steve for this delicious dish!  I used chicken breasts instead of chicken drumsticks as a variation.  I was having difficulty cutting the tips of the drumsticks…needed a man for that job!  But let’s just say Vecoya and I no longer have a cutting board after my fiasco with the drumsticks :-(.  Here are a few pics of last night’s dinner.  Enjoy!

Weekend Recap – Birthdays, Brunch, Mani-Pedis, Dinner and Friends

This past weekend I had the pleasure of spending some much needed girl-time with some of my closest friends.  Whew!  Birthday celebrations, brunch, mani/pedis, and dinner highlighted my weekend.  Of course what would my weekend be without a little bit of makeup glam.
