Happy Holidays!!! I hope you are all having a great holiday season with family and friends.  I wanted to share with you a couple of dishes I prepared on Christmas eve.  Last year in our house we started to make the 7 fishes. Since my husband and I come from Italian descents, we wanted to keep this in our family to share with our kids.  Well this year I wanted to step it up.  In the next couple of posts I will share some of the dishes that I prepared.  I am going to start out with Shrimp and Grits.  I love some creamy, cheesy grits. I think they can be prepared with pretty much anything. The shrimp with some sweet peppers and shallots went along great with the grits.  Then I topped it off with some crispy bacon.  This is a pretty easy dish to prepare at your next gathering or for a weeknight meal.

This recipe can be found in my new cookbook.  Purchase your copy here: or if you have any questions please feel free to email me.

  1. One of the main reasons I get so homesick around the holidays is because I miss my mother’s take on the ‘7 fishes’, too 😀 This looks delicious.
