Three Minute Microwave Gourmet Breakfast

  I don’t know about you, but I usually wait for the weekends to make a gourmet breakfast. No time to waste during the week. I usually hit the snooze button for the umpteenth time before I have to drag my butt out of bed. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I love …

Frozen Fruit Smoothie

  We’re big on fruit smoothies. I make one just about every day. I would really like to add beer, but this is for breakfast after all. Ha! SAM’s Club has yummy produce. I buy bulk fruits, clean them, and toss in a Ziploc freezer bag. We always have blueberries, strawberries and bananas on hand. …

Sesame Peanut Dressing

  Dedicated to our friend Ron. Ron said, “I’m looking for a good sesame, peanut dressing. Can you come up with something for me?” Me in response, “Hells yay!” I too love sesame and peanut’y tasting dressing. I’m actually shocked that I didn’t try this before. So, after a few failed attempts, I came up …

Featured in Taste of Home Simple & Delicious This potato salad and the Kale salad are great for hot, outdoor picnics because it does not call for mayo. It calls for beer. And, who doesn’t like beer? I’m not a potato salad fan, but I have to say, “I really love this.” I’m not a …

Tuna Melt Muffins

  This little bad boy is a spin off to the Ranchero Chicken Muffins I made last week. I’m not a big tuna-in-a-can kind of girl, or Tuna Melts for that matter. However, I had a few cans in the cupboard and thought, “Perhaps if I do something like the Ranchero Chicken, I might like …

Bacon, Egg and Smoked Gruyere Sandwich

Most common is Khichari), a rice dish widely known in India as a comfort food. Ann demonstrated the preparation of the dish and …

This is great during the work week. Between prep and cooking time, you can have a fabulous meal on your table, or couch (where we usually eat), in less than 20 minutes. I always have frozen fish on hand. I usually take the fish out of the freezer the night before and place in the …
