New Orleans Shrimp and Artichoke Soup

It’s been a long time.  I took a break from writing simply because we have been in the process of moving back home to Texas!  Vacation was well needed and I now I have loads of backed up content to share with you guys.  Wait no more!  It’s been pretty nice to say we are back home.  The dogs love it here and so do we.  We are getting a house built and can’t wait to move in.  Things are definitely looking up.

This recipe is something that I came across on Pinterest a while ago.  It’s an inspired recipe from the New Orleans School of Cooking.  A creamy and cajuny (might not be a word, but it is today) combination of flavors.  Loads of artichokes, shrimp and most importantly, love.  This is a fairly simple recipe and I hope you guys try it out!  It’s great!
