Simple Saturday Salad: Shrimp with Cara Cara Oranges

I’ve been away from the blog for too long, largely due to an excess of work (that whole getting paid thing sometimes gets in the way of life…).  Cooking has been pretty minimal as we slog our way toward Spring Break (one more week!), so we have been relying on lots of frozen stuff, quick […]
