I posted about these on my Facebook Page, but thought they also deserved a place on the site, so here they are! Fruit rollups are one of those things I was never allowed as a child. I’d always get mad, as all the other kids had them. But when I grew up and read the […]

We used to go this seafood restaurant and they had Coconut Shrimp on their menu. Even when I was a kid, it was something I would order every time.  I know it must’ve been fried, and they served it with a sweet sauce. Everyone at the table loved them, it was just one of those […]
