Happy New Year!

Before my family got too into our New Year's Eve celebrations, I wanted to take a second to wish all of you a Happy New Year!

It has been so fun meeting other people who love to cook and experiment with food as much as I do.

I wish for you a 2009 full of new recipes, succesful baking, no additional pounds for all of our efforts and always friends and family around our tables because that is the reason why we all cook to begin with!

Happy New Year!

Here is the appetizer my family is munching on right now while waiting for our New Year's Supper to be ready:

Spicy Shrimp Dip

1 lb. fresh shrimp, peeled, and deveined
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
4 scallions (green onion), chopped fine
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped fine
4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 tbsp. Tony's Creole Seasoning
1/2 tsp. lemon juice

Boil peeled and deveined shrimp just until cooked. Chop into small pieces. Fold shrimp, scallions, jalapenos, garlic, seasoning and lemon juice into softened cream cheese. Let mixture stand overnight for flavors to blend. Serve with your choice of crackers.
