Have you seen all of the Christmas memes on Facebook lately? 19 weeks until Christmas Eve, which means there are even fewer weeks until Thanksgiving! Yes, I am thinking well in advance and you will thank me later because these fluffy and creamy Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes are ready in minutes……..
This Classic Rice Pilaf is loaded with flavor and pairs perfectly with your favorite main dish whether it is poultry, fish, pork, or beef! I served mine with Orange Glazed Cornish Game Hens a month ago and promised that the recipe was coming soon…is a month soon enough? LOL I have this horrible habit of scribbling my recipes on notebook paper……..
You better grab a napkin, because these Barbecue Chicken Thighs will have you drooling while you wait for them to come off the grill! Hopefully this post will do the same because you really do need these in your life. Some might say they are the perfect summer food, but I’ll let you decide for yourselves….. …
Who is ready to take their taste buds south of the border with these flavorful Tex-Mex Burgers? The tomatoes in the salsa add moisture, the jalapeno and cumin add the quintessential Tex-Mex flavors that we all know and love, and cheese…well the cheese ties all the flavors together and creates an amazing burger that the whole family will love……..
Are you still looking for a simple, toss together meal for days when you are too busy to think straight? This Tex-Mex Chopped Chicken Salad is exactly what you need! I have been trying to update the photos in my Southwest Chicken Salads for Spring and Summer, and decided to create another variation while all of the ingredients were sitting on the counter……..
Have you ever been to Hawaii? I lived on Kauai for 2 years but never made it to a Luau, they were way too expensive!! My blogging friends and I have gotten together to create the perfect Backyard Luau Menu to help you plan the perfect luau for your family and friends in your own backyard. No plane tickets required……..
Happy Birthday Harry Potter!! Can you believe that it has been 20 years since the release of the first Harry Potter novel? Where does the time go? I have been watching the Harry Potter Happy Birthday Weekend marathon all weekend long, and decided that it was finally time to add this moist and delicious Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge Cake to my list of Harry Potter recreations……..
You asked for it, and now it’s here…the Cherry Moscow Mule! It is a fruity, summer version of the classic cocktail made with fresh cherries, vodka, cherry liqueur, and lime juice. Don’t have fresh cherries laying around, or it is the middle of winter? Defrost some frozen cherries and you are ready to party……..
I came up with the brilliant idea to remake a bunch of old recipes and give them pretty new pictures this week. I picked the ones that needed the most help, and bought all of the ingredients. Then I realized that I would not have anything new to post if I am working on 5 old recipes, duh!! I still have a bunch of cherry recipes finished, but I am already bored with those. Then I realized that I could make Instant Pot Spanish Rice to go along with my Chicken Enchiladas……..
I was going to make Cherry Pop Tarts, but then the idea of Cherry Sweet Rolls popped into my head and would not leave! To be honest, pie crust and I have never really become friends, but yeast dough I can make in my sleep!! Trust me, these are so easy to make even if you “think” yeast dough is too hard to work with……..
