Set oven to 350 degrees.  Clean and pat dry shrimp.  Get three shallow bowls for your prepping stations.  In bowl 1 add your flour and seasonings, bowl 2 is your eggs, bowl 3 is your coconut flakes and bread crumbs.  Coat shrimp in bowl 1 then bowl 2 then bowl 3.  Place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Cook for 10-12 min, turn and cook and additional 7-10 min or until golden brown.  Serve however you like shrimp, I prefer to dip them in my homemade bbq sauce lol

Hydrating Salve

image depicts 4oz jars with 2oz in it, yours will be full 🙂

I am making and shipping orders of my hydrating salve. This salve is super moisturizing, naturally healing for your skin, and a little goes a VERY, VERY long way. The base is grapeseed oil, beeswax and coconut oil I add vitamin E and customize with essential oils. (i.e. you may want lavender, tea tree and geranium for a mild case of eczema or eucalyptus, peppermint and lavender for osteoarthritis, eucalyptus and lavender to sooth muscles etc) The salve is $18 for a 4 oz jar. I just started offering this in my shop. I hope you enjoy.
