Can a morning get better than freshly baked strawberry scones topped with strawberry preserves? I love scones because they are easy to make, and not too sweet. They’re perfect for breakfast or even as the base for a strawberry shortcake topped with fresh berries and whipped cream.  I’ve made so many variations from Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Scones to Apple Scones with Spiced Glaze and even Blueberry Scones.

This Drunken Shrimp is a little less drunk than most recipes – I only use a one-quarter cup of white wine combined with clam juice and fresh lemon. The sauce is so flavorful – definitely serve some crusty bread on the side to soak it up! For some more Italian shrimp recipes, try my Shrimp Fra Diavolo and Shrimp Scampi with Broccoli Orzo.
