Grilled Marinated Shrimp

This makes the best shrimp! Remove from skewers and serve on a bed of pasta with sauce for a great meal. This recipe is AWESOME!! I made it exactly as written, which I always try to do on the first go-round because that’s only fair to the submitter. That way, I’m reviewing THE RECIPE and not my new version of it. Ticks me off when some reviewers completely change the recipe and then take off stars cause they didn’t like it. OK, I’ll get off my soapbox now!! DH RAVED…

ONE-SKILLET ROASTED STEAK & POTATOES

This one-pan steak and potatoes is a hearty week-night meal that tastes like roast beef. What do you do when it’s just two of you or you’re by your lonesome and feel like having roast beef? Unless you want to be eating leftovers for a few weeks, here’s an excellent solution that has no waste at all! I have a freezer filled with steaks–having taken advantage of some super buys in various stores around me. They freeze well because I vacuum seal all of them.  I admit–I overbought and I…

Chocolate Brownie Cake

My friend and I were talking about cake a few days before she died. We both kind of get a kick out the uproar concerning “box mix” in the great cake debate. She told me, “I am going to do cake mix for my next three recipes.” I think it stemmed from an incident on her facebook page where someone had gotten quite upset about her use of a box mix. She never backed down from a controversy and I love that about her! When I came across this recipe…

Best Scalloped Potatoes

Reviews about the recipe: “I can’t believe it! This is my Dad’s scalloped potatoes recipe. He died when I was 11, (I’m 58 now) but one of my fondest memories as a little girl was sitting at our kitchen table together and him teaching me how to make this recipe. No measurements were used, just peeling and slicing the potatoes and onions and layering in the casserole dish with sprinkled-on flour, small pats of butter, salt and pepper (on each layer), then pouring milk on top just until it peeked…

CAKE MIX WAFFLES RECIPE

Last week Cuisinart sent me their Breakfast Central. It is a waffle/omelette maker. I am in the process of preparing a review of the product and in doing so, I am trying it out making many different things. My family was excited to have waffles, as we often buy the frozen ones. These would undoubtedly be way better, but the problem was that we had no yeast and the recipes in the cookbook, called for it. Instead, I decided to try making waffles with cake mix. I always have a…

Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch

Have you tried a fruit crunch? There’s an extra layer of topping that makes this Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch just a little more special than a fruit crisp. Fresh fruits tossed together with citrus and cinnamon sugar, then baked in between layers of a brown sugar and oat crust, this is my favorite way to bake fruit desserts. Almost firm enough to cut into bars and yet just fruity enough to still resemble a crisp, this is simply a fruit crisp with both a top and bottom crust layer. Don’t be intimidated by…

Easy Elephant Ears Recipe

It’s about this time of year (every year) when our family starts the countdown to the official opening of our little hometown fair. My husband, Josh, and I are from the same hometown (believe it or not) and in our little “village,” the fair is a BIG deal. It’s basically a reunion for everyone who’s ever lived and gone to school there. You just don’t miss the fair. You just don’t. Luckily for us, our hometown is just about a 30 minute drive from where we live now, so we…

IRISH BEEF STEW

Americans have a curious way of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. We pinch each other if we forget to wear something green, we make green foods regardless if they have anything to do with Ireland, and we adapt traditional Irish recipes to our own taste. The last is the case with this Irish beef stew. As any Irish person will tell you, lambis the preferred meat for a good Irish stew. But here in the states we eat a lot more beef than lamb, so when we want to make a stew to celebrate all things…
