Spicy Shrimp Dip

Spicy Shrimp Dip

I know, I know it’s been forever since I posted a new recipe! I appreciate all of the emails asking how I am and whether I will be continuing “anniebakes”. Everything is good–just a lot of changes in my life in the last year: The Youngest son graduated from high school a year ago, I had less need to cook, I kind of lost interest in cooking for a while and oh yeah, I lost almost 50 pounds last fall!! So that all being said, a lot of things needed to change in my life and cooking for the masses was one of them. I have since maintained my weight loss (with just a few minor hiccups) and am trying to cook healthier-and while that isn’t nearly as fun, it’s a necessity.

A few years back, I started a blog “anniebakes: cooking for two” and will hopefully being throwing some more content onto that site in the near future. I still find cooking and recipe testing enjoyable-I just don’t eat most of what I cook at this time–good thing there’s always a party to go to 🙂

Speaking of parties, one of the favorite little ladies in our life turned 15 this week, so we celebrated with a party and I brought this Spicy Shrimp Dip-I just modified it a little to take away some of the fat but not the flavor, I hope you enjoy and I look forward to connecting with all my foodie friends in the near future...

    Dear Annie, I hope all is well and it is nice to see you posting once again.
    Making healthy changes is good for everyone. I know it is not as much fun but at least the guilt is gone and you know everyone is better for the simple changes.
    I understand too going through the period of feeling your cooking imagination is simply exhausted.
    The dip does sound delicious and I am sure all enjoyed it.
    Blessings dear, Catherine

    I was surfing around the food blogs and decided to stop by and say hey! Long time no talk my friend. 🙂 I hope you’re doing well. Good for you for getting healthy. We’ve been working on that at this end as well. I hope you’re staying warm this winter! 🙂
