Tasty Tuesday – Meal Delivery Services vs Cooking At Home

Let’s face it, when it comes to dinnertime, COVID-19 either helped some of us re-discover our love of cooking at home, or re-affirmed out desire for takeout! Ever wish there was some sort of middle ground…a nice, easy, make at home meal that won’t destroy the kitchen or take hours to prepare?

I made this easy Lemon Shrimp Scampi last week, and not only was it just delish, but it was so easy! No chopping and very little measuring! Thought I would share with you!
