Sourdough Blueberry Muffins
Slightly dense and bursting with blueberries. I've used unfed sourdough starter discard in this recipe but active sourdough can also be used. Muffins made with active sourdough will be slightly fluffier.
Lime-Ginger Chicken Kabobs with Peanut Sauce
These chicken thighs are flavorful, moist, and very easy to make. And when dipped into an Asian-inspired peanut sauce, just wait for the m-m-m-m-m's to begin. I like to serve this with Cucumber Slices with Dill (a recipe on this site) and white rice.
Matt's Bean Chili with Okra
While away from home, my husband learned how to cook. The one thing that he prides himself the most on is his chili with okra. I do have to say that even the mention of it makes my mouth water. There isn't a special ingredient or really anything unusual about the dish. It's just good.
Easy Shredded Chicken
The easiest way to make a batch of slow cooker chicken. Works well for any recipe that requires cooked shredded chicken. We love to eat it on sandwiches with BBQ sauce. Use the chicken right away in your favorite recipes. Or, allow chicken to cool and portion into zip-top bags and freeze for up to 2 months.
Easy Fish Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Dressing
Easy fish tacos, grilled with an awesome marinade and great cilantro lime dressing. Use Asian slaw (from Wegmans), fresh salsa, and avocado to dress.
Grilled Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions
Italian sausage, bell peppers, and onions made easy on the grill. You can also serve the sausage in hot dog buns and finely chop the veggies once grilled as a "relish". I like to add a squirt of mustard when I serve them this way.
Lemon-Tahini Quinoa with Raw Chickpeas
On a slow day, I tried sprouting chickpeas. After eating quite a few, I tried planting a few. They grew into the most beautiful seedlings I have ever seen. And now I am harvesting fresh garbanzo beans. I tossed them into a quinoa salad I make frequently with fresh peas. The results were excellent.
Easy No-Bake Strawberry Ice Cream Cake
It's hard to find a summer dessert easier and more refreshing than this combination of strawberry ice cream and a purchased 10-inch angel food cake! Layers of cake and ice cream, frosted with a purchased frozen whipped topping, are stored in the freezer until you are ready to garnish and slice. This should keep, covered, in the freezer for a week or two. I've never been able to find out exactly how long it will store, because it's usually gone in a few days!
Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini
The lemon drop is without a doubt my favorite cocktail and my go-to drink on hot summer days. This is just a slight variation that I was inspired to create because my kids were picking raspberries from our bushes and throwing them in their lemonade. Tart and sweet, this cocktail is a winner.
