BBQ Baked Beans – Electric Pressure Cooker

22 04 2017

All right all you Instant Pot and Electric Pressure Cooker people. This one is for you. A summer BBQ staple, a picnic must, sure you can buy them in a can for $3-4 each, reheat and go. They are okay, in fact, they are pretty good. You can and should make them yourself though, an entirely different experience, they are amazing. I’m talking of course about BBQ Baked Beans! With the pressure cooker, it’s honestly just silly to buy them, check out how simple this is. Read the rest of this entry »

Thai Red Curry and Coconut Butternut Squash Soup

17 01 2016

Thai Butternut Squash SoupOn Saturday mornings, I’m a bit of a creature of habit. Get that first cup of coffee poured and go sit down for a little quiet time in front of the computer. Might be Facebook or Pinterest, catching up on sports or recipe blogs, etc.

Yesterday I looked to my right and was reminded that we have quite a few butternut squash left from last summers garden. I popped up Pinterest and started looking around. I don’t know how many of you like that site but one of my favorite features is once you’re looking at a pin that interests you, there are magically related pins listed under it. The subjects meander around a bit but it tends to be where I find inspiration. That’s just what happened. I was looking around for a variation on the ginger-curry soup that I like to make with our butternut squash and one of those related posts was for a very traditional Thai red curry. It had nothing to do with squash, just a soup recipe. I read that and thought that I could come up with a good fusion of the two. Here’s what I came up with last night. I only used 6 ingredients but I think it might be one of my best creations so far. Read the rest of this entry »





Tomato Pie – A Great Way To Finish The Season

10 10 2014

Tomato PieThis time of year, you’re likely bemoaning the end of summer and the bounty that it provides, OR, tired of  roasting, canning or freezing, OR, frantically trying to figure out what to do with the end of season goodies that this late summer has brought us. Well, I have a suggestion for the tomatoes! Try your hand at a tomato pie! You can either eat it the same day or prepare the pie and freeze it before baking to save for a slightly chillier season. It can be served as a main dish or as a side.

The Best Kale Salad

27 04 2013

kale saladI have to give credit where credit is due.  My sister-in-law, Heidi, provided this recipe.  It is truly awesome and I can’t wait for you all to make it and let me know what you think too.  As we approach the warm weather this salad  should become a staple of picnics, BBQ’s and/or any other outdoor dining experience you can think of.  It takes all of about 5 minutes to put together.

Jeff’s Curry Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

16 04 2011

Okay…I know…You don’t care about the recipe, you just want to eat about 40 of these right now don’t you!  When our friend Jeff had us over for a BBQ and this was the smell from the grill, I know that’s what I was thinking.  Of course, about 5 minutes later, I knew that I NEEDED this recipe.  They are really pretty easy (a little time consuming but not difficult) and couldn’t be tastier.  Can’t imagine why it’s taken me so long to post this one.  Enjoy!

3 Day Flank Steak

31 01 2010

My stepfather worked with this recipe for years and I think it’s perfect!  I really love flank steak and while the 3 days isn’t a requirement by any means, if you can marinade it that long you’ll be rewarded.  A minimum of 6 hours is recommended.  This recipe has converted vegetarians back from the darkside!
