I'm sure many of you already know Ally from Ally's Kitchen, and those of you who don't are in for a real treat! I met Ally through our Facebook fan pages. I always check hers to see what she and others are cooking since she sends out links and photos to some of the juiciest stuff in the food blog world. Funny, sweet, energetic, artistic and free spirited, she is one blogger you do NOT want to miss! I now give the floor to Ally and her mouth watering Red Russian Kale Cannellini Beans & Shrimp. Enjoy!
