I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Italian Roasted Shrimp

If you're tired of turkey leftovers, these quick and delish crustaceans will really hit the spot. And they're baked in the oven on a foil lined pan for easy clean up! Serve with your favourite pasta or rice.


 300g (o.66 lb) 16-20 size shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 tbsps olive oil

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 tsp dry oregano

1/4 tsp dry basil

salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with cooking oil. Combine olive oil, garlic, oregano and basil and toss with shrimp to coat. Place the shrimp on the prepared baking sheet and season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Bake at 400°F for approximately 8-12 minutes or until opaque and pink.

Depending on the size shrimp you use the cooking time will vary. Here is a guideline:

medium - 7-9 minutes

large/extra large - 8-10 minutes

jumbo - 10-12 minutes

Serve with lemon wedges and they're awesome over spaghetti with tomato sauce!

Serves 2-3
