Hawaiian Chicken Skewers

There is something about kabobs that is so satisfying and so much fun.  If you like meat, the sauce and the vegetables compliment it.  If  want to do just vegetables that is fine too.  Have a good sauce and be imaginative about what you put on your skewers.  I am featuring a recipe from delish.com.

Blueberry Cobbler

It is hard to believe that July 4th is just around the corner.  I am not one to rush things but this summer is flying by at a record speed.  Blueberry Cobbler is a great dessert anytime; however the colors are especially fitting for the 4th of July. Blueberry Cobbler 5 cups of fresh or frozen […]

Barbecued Chicken Breasts

The weather has been so gorgeous. We have been grilling out about every night. Those of you that know me know that I am a Weber girl. I love my Weber charcoal grill.  My current model is at least 10 years old and it still works great. I am partial to charcoal grilling but I […]

Chicken Tikka Masala

Gourmet cooking can be so much fun especially when someone else has done the hard work for you.  I am sharing another recipe from Karen’s Spice Kitchen.  Her spice blends are now available at your local meat market.  Entertaining is super easy if you have Karen’s Spice blends on hand with a few staples.

Sanibel Island and Coconut Shrimp

I found out that Sanibel Island and Coconut Shrimp go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other. The Butcher and I just got back from Sanibel Island. I would highly recommend this destination. It is easy to get there–direct flight to Southwest Florida Airport on Frontier Airlines. The shells are amazing–unlike anything […]

Oven Fried Chicken

This is such a gloomy day in May. I am feeling the need for some comfort food. I don’t have to go too far to feel the “love” when I make oven fried chicken. Put potatoes in the oven, make a salad and you have a meal fit for a king–or at least a Butcher […]

Banana Pancakes–Paleo style!

My customers give me the best tips. One of my customers told me about banana pancakes. I am sorry I can’t remember who it was or I would give him proper credit. He told me he mashed up a banana and mixed eggs with it, and poured them and cooked them and voila–banana pancakes. I […]
