  1. Ooo, yummy! I loves me some shrimp. And alfredo. And pasta. You could probably also do this recipe with chicken. Or scallops. Oh, yum.

    And oooo, I love this book so much!

    • Silver James says:

      Yes. Yes. And Yes! I hadn’t thought about scallops. That could be really yummy! And yes, I’ll be doing a print version just so I can have a hard copy to pet because I do ❤ me this cover.
