Paleo Lemon Chicken

I am pretty excited!  Today I went to Costco and got a new 13-piece set of stainless steel cookware.  My mom had bought me a few awesome pieces a couple years ago, and since that time, I haven’t wanted to cook with anything else.  Today I completed my collection (and got it for $140, where I was seeing similar sets for about $400 –  gotta love Costco!).  I immediately put the set to good use.  Used the steamer and a saucepan to make baby food this afternoon and then used it again to steam broccoli for dinner.  The piece I was most excited for was the covered sauté pan!  I have been wanting one of those for some time!  So here you go.  A recipe for a covered sauté pan.  If you don’t have one, a normal skillet will work fine 🙂

Pesto Shrimp on Zucchini Noodles

I love this recipe and it is one of my husband’s favorites.  It takes a bit of prep work to make the pesto, cut the zucchini noodles, and peel the shrimp, but once everything is ready, it cooks very quickly.  I like getting everything ready in advance and then it makes for a quick fancy meal.  Hope you enjoy!
