  8. Remove muffins from their cups, dip each muffin in the melted margarine, and roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Let cool and serve.


Recipe Friday – Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp


OOO…SHRIMP!! Ok maybe an over exaggeration…but I do love shrimp!!  I’m always looking for new ways to fix it because not only me but my family loves it as well. If we could eat it more often we would. But like with everything we have to balance it out 🙂

This is a recipe I found awhile back and I gave it a try. It turned out amazing. I hope you enjoy it as well!!


Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp



  1. Whisk the paprika, garlic, Italian seasoning, lemon juice, olive oil, pepper, basil, and brown sugar together in a bowl until thoroughly blended.
  2. Stir in the shrimp, and toss to evenly coat with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, turning once.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil grill grate, and place about 4 inches from heat source.
  4. Remove shrimp from marinade, drain excess, and discard marinade.
  5. Place shrimp on preheated grill and cook, turning once, until opaque in the center, 5 to 6 minutes. Serve immediately.
