Quick Pesto and Shrimp Pasta

Quick Pesto and Shrimp Pasta_Real Housemoms

Pasta is a great quick meal.  When I’m crunched for time, or just don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking I usually turn to pasta.   Shrimp is the same way.  Great tasting shrimp can be on the table in no time and it always goes over well!  When I was thinking of what to make for dinner the other day I had both on hand and no desire to spend time cooking.   No time to cook doesn’t always mean that you can’t have an amazing dinner!  This Pesto and Shrimp Pasta was so great I couldn’t stop stealing bites of it as I made it.

Strawberry and Lime Moscato Mimosa

Strawberry and Lime Moscato Mimosa_Real Housemoms

When my Mom and I get together we like to have mimosas.  It makes sense because mimosas are for special occasions and getting to spend time with family and friends is a special occasion.  My parents have lived in a different state from me since I was 20, so we have a great time and look forward to getting together as often as we can.   We are getting together for my little brother’s wedding Easter weekend and most of my extended family is going to be there also.  It’s going to be a HUGE special weekend and I can’t wait!!!  I wanted to come up with a drink that was special enough for the weekend and this Strawberry and Lime Moscato Mimosa is definitely special!

Meaty Eggs Benedict Casserole

Eggs Benedict Casserole | Real Housemoms

Growing up my Mom would make a breakfast for us on special occasions that we call THE Hollandaise Breakfast.  It’s Eggs Benedict but on bagels and with bacon.  We love it and as it’s been shared with new family and friends, they’ve loved it too.  I’ll have to share that recipe soon but I wanted to share something with you all today that would be easy to make for a crowd on a holiday morning.  Let’s face it, we get busy on holiday mornings.  There are the traditional festivities and crowds to cook multiple dishes for and we don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen and miss all the fun.  Breakfast casseroles are my favorite breakfasts for the holidays because all the heavy lifting is done the night before so that in the morning all I have to do is preheat and bake!  So Meaty Eggs Benedict Casserole is the perfect brunch breakfast for a holiday morning.
