Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

Flank steak is the perfect meat for grilling quickly at a high temperature, and it’s made better by marinating it.  All you need is to mix up a few common pantry ingredients, pour them over the steak, and allow the steaks to marinate.  I usually allow flank steak to sit in the marinade overnight, but it can also be marinated for as little as two […]

Top 10 Most Popular Posts

When we had my 200th post party, I was looking at the analytics on my site to find out which posts had the most views.    I was hoping to get an idea about what sort of posts were drawing traffic, so I could write more of that type of post.   I was surprised at some of the posts that held these top spots.  Here’s […]

Shrimp boil foil packet for the grill

Shrimp Boil Foil Packet

I love Shrimp Boil.  The first time I ever had it, my aunt, who was living in New Orleans at the time, brought shell-on shrimp and seasonings up to my grandmother’s house and made a shrimp boil for the family.  For me, it was love at first bite.  We make shrimp boil at our house from time to time, but this version is much easier.   […]

Tomato, Olive, and Mozarella Salad 1

Tomato, Mozzarella and Olive Salad

I am always looking for new recipes to make for my family.  I often pass by the deli counter in my local grocery store to see what’s new in the way of salads.  On one trip, I noticed a very interesting looking salad.  It was a very colorful mixture of red, white, black, and green.  Intrigued, I asked the girl behind the case what it […]

Teriyaki Burger 1

Teriyaki Burgers

At the beginning of the summer grilling season, I posted my recipe for teriyaki sauce, but if you’re looking for a way to whip up some teriyaki flavored burgers without having to first whip up a batch of teriyaki sauce, this recipe is for you.  All you need is a mug, a bowl, 5 items you probably already have in your kitchen, and  1 1/2 […]

butter biscuits that only require 4 ingrients

4 Ingredient Butter Biscuits

These 4 Ingredient Butter Biscuits are simple and delicous.  I’m always looking for short cuts in my kitchen that don’t sacrifice taste.  This recipe is adapted from a recipe that I found over at CountryCook.net, and it definitely fits the bill.  Brandie, the recipe author, is a genius.  Making biscuits in the morning can be time consuming and labor intensive, but this recipe for 4 […]

Pineapple rice pudding

Pineapple Rice Pudding

This  recipe is a summer dessert that was created after several months of thinking about ways to modify some of my other recipes.  I love rice pudding, Glorified Rice, and Watergate salad.  I was wondering if I could somehow combine the Glorified Rice and Watergate Salad recipes to create a simplified version of rice pudding that would serve as a refreshing dessert for the hot […]

Tomato Rice

Tomato Rice

This is not an original idea.  In fact, the recipe is something that I saw on the YouTube channel Strictly Dumpling.   You can watch the video for Whole Tomato in Rice Cooker to see how he makes this dish using a rice cooker.  I was feeling too lazy to get my rice cooker out of the cabinet, so I made this on the stove top. […]

Creamy baked tilapia served with rice pilaf and broccoli

Creamy Baked Tilapia

Today, I am sharing another fish recipe that I found among my mother’s recipes.  My mother was not a big fan of fish.  Her favorites were Salmon and Cod, and usually, her methods of preparation were very simple.    As an adult,  I have learned to appreciate other types of fish, but I continue to like simple methods to prepare them.   This recipe is […]
