Be Mango Kumana Chicken

Marinated Shrimp

An impressive party appetizer My mom has been making this forever and I finally made my own version of it for my Cinderella Ball. It’s such a great party recipe because it ups the flavor profile of shrimp but it’s still as easy as whisking. If you can whisk, you can make this recipe! You…

Veggie Platter
