Spinach and Artichoke dip with Shrimp

Each year my husband and I throw a shrimp fest, yes, you heard that right, a festival of potluck style dishes that include shrimp in some way.  This year folks went over the top and now I have a whole host of new recipes that I’ll eventually need to make and post on here on […]
