Shrimp, Bacon, and Corn Thin-Crust Pizza with Garlic Lemon Cream Sauce

Shrimp, Bacon, and Corn Thin-Crust Pizza - Just the TipThis pizza is so good we made it twice in one week.

Spaghetti with Roasted Eggplant and Tomatoes - Just the Tip

Is it bad to say that the only reason I’m blogging is because I don’t want to forget about this recipe again?

This recipe made me and a few of my girlfriends very happy this past week. I even used low-carb pasta and none of them were the wiser. Dreamfields spaghetti and linguine tastes exactly like regular pasta and I love it. Enjoy! xo
