Marinated Steak and Tomato Kebabs

Is it Friday yet? I have managed to be not one day off this week but three. That's a new record for me. Must be the "preggy" brain. Or maybe it's because I am on vacation next week! My vacation however will mostly consist of cleaning and organizing some much needed areas of my home. Any who; I won't bore you any longer. Yum-O-Yum are these kebabs.  Marinated chunks of sirloin grilled along with tomatoes and onions. Serve alongside some jazzy rice or potatoes.

Potato Crusted Spinach Quiche

Happy Monday! I made this quiche on a whim. Literally. I used whatever I had on hand in the fridge and freezer. I love cooking like that. It comes together in a flash too and cooks quickly. It came out pretty dang good. I love using seasoned potatoes instead of pie crust also. It tastes so much better, I think anyway.

Sticky Slow Roasted Chicken


  • Slow roasted in the oven for five hours this chicken comes out tasting moist and juicy just like a rotisserie chicken.  You could use a whole chicken I only had a cut up one. I find that easier to use anyway. No carving involved.

Creamy Bacon Pasta with Peas

Calling all bacon lovers. This is the pasta for you! Creamy cheesy with bacon and peas. It resembles a Carbonara but I just don't do raw eggs. Can't and just won't. I cringe at the very thought. So I was able to bypass all that by coming up with this.

Man Pleasing Food For Fathers Day


Here are some man pleasing dishes from dinners to barbecue depending on what the amazing father, grandfather, husband, son, brother would like. As fore me I haven't a clue just what will be on the menu at our house. One husband, a father and a father in law to feed. I may have to take a consensus. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Red Skin Potato Salad




  • We recently had my sons annual birthday barbecue. I make an array of salads this is one of them. Simple to put together and tastes amazing! He was born on Memorial Day 13 years ago. A month early and impatient as ever there he was. Now since Memorial Day changes every year we still have his party on that Monday every year. I still can't believe he's officially a teenager. Where have the last 13 years gone?

Tomato Grilled Cheese


My favorite grilled cheese. Need a perfect quick lunch? Or even a easy dinner along with some tomato soup. Oh and let's not forget the crunchy dill pickle. Well tomato grilled cheese is it! After a long weekend I need to step away from the barbecue and just have a nice easy lunch. I think I may be barbecued out for a while. I tend to switch on and off from the barbecue and the stove in the summer months. For example, Tuesdays is always pasta night. Fridays is usually pizza. As much as I love to cook I need to nights for a closed kitchen.
