Jasmine Green Tea Shrimp and Tillen Farms Giveaway

I was so excited to create this delicious dish, not only because I love cooking with tea, but I used a new fabulous ingredient for this recipe, ghee.  I have entered the Pure Indian Foods Ghee Recipe Contest and thought this would be a delicious dish to incorporate delicious flavors of tea and ghee in a savory shrimp dish that is perfect for a lunch atop your salad or a dinner atop steamed wild rice.

And now for my Tillen Farms VIP Kit Giveaway.

I am so excited to announce this giveaway as I have had the pleasure of working with this amazing company, whose products are out-of-this-world incredible and deliciously perfect for the palate.

Their products range from a rainbow of white asparagus, green beens, carrots, cherries and green asparagus…some with a hint of natural sweetness and others with a true kick.

To Enter:

Leave a comment on this post telling me which Tillen Farms product you’d like to try.  I am in love with the Tillen Farms products; they are fresh, crisp and delicious.  I’ve noted them on my ‘Favorites’ Page because they truly are the only brand of pickled vegetables that I purchase because of their fresh, crisp taste.  Believe me, they are far from the odinary pickled vegetable…My favorite is the white asparagus…so delicious.

I will be picking a winner on Thursday, December the 2nd at 5PM EST.

Good Luck!

Also, I wanted to tell all of you about this Winter Expedition hosted by Good Commons

This sounds like a dream boat to me…a lil’ skiing, private chef, massage, yoga…

Paradise on the East Coast?

I think so…
