Easy Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

Easy Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

Lets face it, it is too HOT to grill!  I know Summer is synonymous with grilling but when it is 108 degrees outside no one wants to put anyone they love in charge of grilling, that’s just cruel!   These oven baked ribs are the next best thing!  Bake them for 3 hours and there are no…

Amazing Salsa and Chips

Amazing Salsa and Chips

This salsa is amazing!  The fresh tomatoes along with the other fresh veggies really give this salsa a POP!  To remove the skin off of a fresh tomato, slit the bottom of the tomato 2 times, making an “X”.  Drop in boiling hot water for about 30-60 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon and immediately “shock”…

Crunchy Chips

Crunchy Chips

  I am not recreating the wheel of cheese here but I think I have made making cheese chips easy and tasty. All you need is one ingredient: CHEESE!   These chips can surprisingly hold up to salsa and dips, just don’t try to dig all the way down to the bottom of the bowl.…

Three Meat Chili

Three Meat Chili

I have been working on a good chili recipe for a while.  There is just something satisfying about all the meat and the Mexican spices.  I grew up eating chili with beans and that was a  hard habit to break.  Well, I think the bacon and beer in this recipe help break the habit!  I…

Happy Fourth of July Cupcakes or Flag Cake

Kids and adults alike will love these cupcakes! Feel free to use raspberries if you like but I just love strawberries.  To make a 9×13, simply double recipe.  You may still have enough batter to make a few cupcakes.   I chose to use the Dairy Free Version because the coconut milk and oil make this cake…

Cucumber Caprese Salad

This is such an easy dish using some of the best veggies and herbs from the garden.  The cucumber takes this caprese salad to the next level.     I eat this with a spoon so I can be sure to get all of the balsamic vinaigrette out of the bowl!   Nothing better than…

Zucchini and Spinach Lasagna with a Spicy Meat Sauce

Zucchini and Spinach Lasagna with a Spicy Meat Sauce

It’s that time of year again in the South, harvest time for our summer veggies.  There is always an abundance of zucchini and squash at our house from my in-law’s garden.  This lasagna replaces traditional noodles with zucchini and has a spinach and ricotta filling as well.  And don’t forget about the spicy meat sauce.…

Bacon-Fried Green Beans

Bacon-Fried Green Beans

Yes, I said bacon fried green beans!  I probably could have said bacon fried celery and you would have still opened up the recipe! This is such an easy dish.  The key is to “fry” but not burn the green beans.  Fresh-frozen green beans can be used but I prefer fresh.  They have a much…

Easy Cajun Chicken Cordon Bleu

I am not a big fan of chicken breast!  Actually, I really dislike them!  I am on the cusp of using the word “hate”!  They are usually always dry and not satisfying to me due to their lack of fat.  I  prefer the dark meat, particularly thighs because they are so succulent and tasty. Well, this recipe…
