I'm a dabbler in my kitchen and truly enjoy researching just about any type of recipe. I keep a well-stocked pantry, so it makes it that much easier. I'm very fortunate that my husband is not a picky eater. It is a treat for me as much as it is for him coming home to a "surprise" dinner; practically nightly. If I get a "Thumbs Up" I know it's a KEEPER. The nice part is, I rarely get a "Thumbs Down" To me, cooking is a bunch of fun!

    Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes, until they are almost completely opaque. Add the cream and bring just to a simmer. Stir in the lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Lower the heat and simmer until the shrimp are opaque throughout, about 1 minute.

    Variation: Serve over Pasta, or Spaghetti Squash. I added a twist to this recipe by serving it over Spaghetti Squash. If you've never tried Spaghetti Squash, I highly recommend it. Not only is it lower in carbs, it is healthier and sort of reminds you of pasta.
