You've been dating this guy for weeks, and you really like him! This week it's your turn to set up the date, and you're at a total loss. He's already taken you to all of your favorite spots, and you're not sure how to impress him. So what are your plans?
Now's the time to show off your skills (whether authentic or not), and cook him a dinner that he'll never forget! Thanks to the delicious, hearty, 'just like mama used to do' recipes at getemgirls.com, a good meal is oh so easy to find!
Try this yummy Shrimp Scampi w/Linguine and add some toasted garlic bread... but be ready to get the fire burning after this one ...if you know what I mean!!
1 (16-ounce) package linguine noodles, uncooked
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
5 tablespoons butter
2 shallots, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
Prepare pasta according to package directions for al dente. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil and 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic to the pan; cook and stir until the shallots are translucent, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Season shrimp with salt and pepper; add to the skillet. Cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside.
Add the wine and lemon juice to the pan and bring to a boil. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When the butter has melted return the shrimp to the pan. Remove from heat and add the parsley and cooked pasta. Toss to coat the pasta and drizzle with a bit more olive oil. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings according to the "Get 'em Girls" ...you may be able to stretch it out to 6 though! :)

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we all should be doing our part to support the cause! After all, thousands of women are diagnosed yearly, and this disease is certainly not biased. I'm sure everyone knows at least one other person who has been affected personally with Breast Cancer, or indirectly through the illnes of a family member. So if for no other reason, SUPPORT THEM!!
Since there is no known cure for the disease, most monetary donations are resereved strictly for research. So even purchasing that Pink Ribbon at the checkout of your favorite retailer will help! Also, since about 85% of women who develop the disease have been found to have no family history of it, it is extremely important for you and the women in your life (especially those over 40) to go for an annual screenings! Of course, unless you are at a higher risk due to family history or over 40, it is not necessary for you to be tested unless you discover symptoms. However, we can not forget about our moms, aunts, sisters, and grand-mothers. Encourage them to to take care of their health and get their mamograms!

Come out to meet actress and former Miss USA, Kenya Moore, tonight at Hue-Man Bookstore in Harlem, as she promotes her new book, Game Get Some: What Women Really Want!
"I’m so happy about this book. It’s my way of explaining women from A to Z for the fellas out there that want to polish their game," the beauty queen states.
Hhmmm... Sounds interesting. Especially since all of these men out here profess to have what it takes, but when it comes down to it, they really have no clue! So while one does not need to be a relationship connoisseur to know what she wants from a man, I'm really interested in finding out what Kenya has to say on the topic. So I'll certainly check this one out!
Tonight, Oct. 1, from 6pm - 8pm
Hue-Man Bookstore & Cafe
2319 Frederick Douglass Blvd
Between 124th and 125th Streets
