  1. Both of these recipes sound wonderful--I definitely have to try them. (Oh, and I used fresh citrus in my Spice Challenge recipe too--I suppose technically that isn't a "spice rack" item, but I think it was okay anyway.) :)

  2. I think either should have been fine for the SRC but I am looking at the shrimp one as what I might want...I think I might be craving shrimp, I think I have been for about a week now.

  3. @mia, yes they are very tasty
    and "fresh" was ok, you're right

  4. @Shayne, I'm with you...shrimp...miam!miam!
