I got this recipe from the Food Network. I had some chicken breasts in my freezer that I wanted to use up in a new way and since it is summer, I looked for a simple grilled chicken recipe that didn’t require marinating (because I didn’t have the time) and this is what I found. Best part is the whole process of prep and cooking only takes about 25 minutes.
I decided that I wanted to have a Greek feast with pork souvlaki served as a gyros with a side of these Greek lemon potatoes. I was surprised at how they were crispy on the outside but fluffy on the inside. Perfect side dish for my Greek feast.
I absolutely love peameal bacon. I usually just slice and fry in a frying pan and enjoy with a little mustard. When I saw this recipe, I just KNEW that I had to go buy some peameal bacon to try it out! Definitely worth the wait (I couldn’t find peameal bacon in my local grocery store for about 2 weeks, and it was driving me nuts with all the anticipation).
I made this recipe to top my Pork Burgers but obviously coleslaw is always good on it’s own as a side. I cheated and bought a pre-made coleslaw mix so all I had to do was whip up this awesome dressing and I was good to go!
This is the first time I’ve cooked a whole fish (minus the head) and I think it was a success. Granted, the fish was cleaned and headless, I was pretty impressed with myself. Not only does grilled whole fish look impressive, it’s often cheaper than buying pre-cut fillets at the fish counter. I bought frozen from the grocery store, but if you go to a fish monger, you can probably get fresh.
This recipe is a nice light dish to make on a hot summer night as a meal for 4 people or appetizers for 6 (the recipe makes 12 rolls). You want to make sure you have everything prepped and organized before you start cooking because the individual cook times are very short and as long as you are ready, you can go pretty fast. Once everything is cooked, you can even have everyone make their own rolls (less work for you!).
Now that I have a garden, I have to use up my own vegetables as much as possible. I went out yesterday and noticed that I have TONS of radishes. I picked some of the larger ones and found this quick pickle recipe which was easy to make and delicious to eat.
This delicious casserole is both Gluten Free and pretty easy to make. Especially since it uses canned tuna. I also loved the combination of the coconut milk with the sweet potato.
This recipe is a great low carb and Gluten Free version of a Chinese takeout classic.
I had a craving for pulled pork, I went to the grocery store and beautiful pork shoulder was on sale… clearly, it was fate. And this recipe definitely hit the spot, cooking low and slow in the crock pot, and made one of the best (and easiest) pulled pork sandwiches I have had.
