Grilled Peaches with Ice Cream


We had a nice grilled steak last night with some nice Community Share Agriculture (CSA) potatoes and green beans. I love my CSA! I almost never serve dessert after dinner but we were looking for a quick sweet treat that I didn’t feel so awful about my kids having. While we were away there were…

Pesto Marinated Grilled Chicken


We are spending quite a bit of time at the beach or out doing things at night. Since the sun doesn’t set until 9:30 pm often dinner is at 9:00 or later for us. We like things that are not too heavy and super easy to make on these nights. Pesto marinated grilled chicken is…

Steak Burgers


I try to take my family’s tastes and what they like into account when I make my menus. Yes, I do try to stretch them, and myself, a bit at times with food choices but sometimes comfort food and a simple hamburger or hot dog are all you want. My kids wanted  hamburgers and fries…

Pesto Pasta with Roasted Red Peppers and Grilled Chicken


This was a meal I made by opening up the cupboards and started pulling jars. We had friends in town that we didn’t know when they were arriving or when they would be able to see us. They were traveling through town with their extended family and we knew we could have to leave at…

Greek Spiced Grilled Pork Chops


Some days I am lucky I get food on the table for dinner. This was actually a well thought out meal but the lack of ambition was what was killing me. I was exhausted and wanted nothing to do with cooking. The lure of takeout or going to a restaurant were calling my name. But,…

Asian Sticky Grilled Pork Loin


Tax season is over. I am hoping life will now settle down. The problem is all the appointment that I have been putting off for the last two months have to be done now so there are doctors appointments, dentist appointments, eye appointments, hearing appointments and hair appointments all within the next two to three…

Grilled Marinated Chicken


One of the best ways I have found to save money (I love my Disney trips and need to save for them) is to try and buy all my staple grocery products when they are on sale.   Most sales happen every 4-6 weeks so when I find items such as chicken thighs or chicken drumsticks…

Hoisin Barbecue Hot Dogs


This is a very strange picture.  I get that.  But, this dinner was one I needed to get ready on the fly.  They look much better in a hot dog bun, but we were out of those. Every once in a while I need to make hot dogs.  Not my first pick for a meal…

Beer Brats with Caramelized Onions


So, now that we have completely moved, AGAIN, I have finally found my camera cord and can start posting some of our meals over the past month or so.  Life has been insane with packing, moving and unpacking but we did it.  We are all moved in (well, except for the 30 boxes in our…
