Foodie Friday – Breakfast for Dinner

I had no imagination for dinner today.  When that happens, I make breakfast for dinner.  We had scrambled eggs and sausage patties.  I had some fresh pineapple and strawberries, so I thought about fruit kabobs.  I ramped up the fruit kabobs with mini pancakes with Nutella on them.  Yum!  We could have just had the…

Foodie Friday – Baked Buffalo Chicken

I like buffalo wings, but hate the mess. With baked buffalo chicken, you get the taste without sticky fingers! I took chicken tenderloins, what I had on hand, you can use chicken breasts too, laid them in a baking dish. Poured Frank’s Buffalo sauce over chicken.  I used about half the bottle.  Sliced up a…

What a grand old birthday

My daughter turned 13 this week.  I now have a teenager!  How did that happen? My daughter is very musical.  She plays the piano, viola and guitar.  Last year my brother in law bought her a 100 year old grand piano.  She loves it.  So in honor of her musical talents and the one year…

Hubby’s birthday cake

My husband’s birthday is 5 days before my daughters.   I always make them cakes and try to make each of their birthdays different and special. This year I made hubby a German chocolate bundt cake with Coconut pecan icing. Don’t know if you ever have seen the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding.  The woman…

Foodie Friday – New way to slice watermelon

I found this on the Internet the other day.  I think its the easiest way to cut watermelon.  Why haven’t I heard of this before?  I hate to slice watermelon. First cut watermelon in half.  Then slice diagonal, then horizontal. Then you can just pull a piece of watermelon out.  We have been calling them…

Foodie Friday – What’s for dinner?

We had grilled cheese and tomato soup.  Not just tomato soup from a can.  Oh, no.  I made homemade tomato basil soup.  Fresh basil straight from the garden.  Everyone ate it up.  My daughter just got braces this week and her mouth was still kinda sore, so I have been trying to make softer foods…

Foodie Friday – Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

Foodie Friday – Spaghetti Squash and Turkey Meatballs

Foodie Friday – Roasted Asparagus

I have made roasted asparagus a couple times in the last few weeks.   First time I made it everyone ate it up and wanted more.  The second time I made two bunches and we still didn’t have leftovers!  I know mine looks a little crispy but that is what makes it good!  Trust me! I…

Foodie Friday – Roasted head of Cauliflower

I roasted 2 whole heads of Cauliflower the other night with dinner.   Turned out great.  I love roasting any vegetable, really brings out the flavor.   Yes, it looks like roasted brains, but its really good.  Give it a try! Instructions I took 2 small heads of Cauliflower and brushed all over, even the bottom, with…

Foodie Friday – Veggetti review

Like I have said before, I have been trying to eat healthier.   I love  zucchinis.  I picked up the Veggetti the other day and thought I would try it out.  Works great.  I saute the zucchini in a little butter, olive oil and garlic. Yum!  My daughter even tried it, when she wouldn’t eat zucchinis…
