Crispy Chicken with Arugula

Hey everyone. Hope it’s a great day! Summer can be difficult for those that don’t have any fun vacations to look forward to (ME!). So, I count on a lot of good meals to keep me happy. Last week I shared a crazy simple Pesto Chicken dish. This weeks is another chicken recipe, but it’s […]

Grasshopper Parfait

Who here loves the chocolate and mint combo? I’ve loved it ever since I can remember. I had first heard about the “grasshopper” flavor when I had gone to an ice cream shop with friends, as a teenager, and saw they had grasshopper shakes. I was told it was the chocolate and mint combo and since […]

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Summer is all about easy, cool recipes. Do you agree??

We love all the recipes associated with summer time, and one of those is PASTA SALADS!! We are making one at least once a week to go to the pool party or the BBQ or for the pizza night with friends. Who’s doing the same thing? Over the years, we have relied on our classic […]

Copycat Torchy’s Street Corn

Have you been to Torchy’s Tacos before? Unfortunately, they are only located in Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma so if you haven’t been to any of these places in the last few years, chances are you haven’t been there. It’s a very sad thing because the place has some of the best tacos and sides I’ve […]

Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

Favorite Broccoli Salad

We have enjoyed Broccoli Salad for as long as I can remember. I think we first had it a BBQ restaurant years ago and have tried numerous recipes since then.

Parmesan Crusted Potato Skins

Potato Skins have always been one of my favorite appetizers. The only thing about them is we’ve found that when we get them at restaurants either they are REALLY good or they don’t have any flavor. Weird, right?! Well, I experienced this for myself several weeks ago when I was trying to make them for New […]

Overnight French Toast Bake

It’s no surprise we love breakfast recipes. I mean, we love them so much we have breakfast for dinner every Wednesday night. We usually do some variation of pancakes, waffles or French Toast because the kids love all of them. Usually, my husband makes dinner on Wednesdays, but last week, he had to work late, […]

25+ 4th of July Decorations

Am I the only one who thinks it’s crazy that the Fourth of July is less than two weeks away!? Didn’t school just get out and it seems like summer is already half over?! Okay, maybe not for you, but I just feel like this summer is flying by!! And in case you are looking […]

Strawberry Broccoli Salad

Sometimes I am asked to do something that is hard for me to do…. like write a gushing post about broccoli. Its not a secret that broccoli and I are not friends. But I understand that, above the age of 8, I am in the minority. So, I’ve gathered everyone else’s input on this recipe […]

Easy Popcorn Balls

Who here has memories of eating delicious, sticky Popcorn Balls when they were younger?! I DO!! In fact, that’s my only memory of them because I feel like they vanished from my life for a good 25 years or so until recently. I saw these sweet treats at a school fair and asked my mom […]
