Anyone else have tomatoes coming out of their ears?? This sauce is a perfect and delicious way to put them to good use! It freezes well, so make a double batch and freeze some for a quick dinner on another day or to have on hand when the days get cold and you need a tasty reminder of your late summer harvest.

This month in Utah, they will be celebrating Pioneer Day on July 24th. It’s a BIG deal and a lot of fun! What is Pioneer Day? It’s a state holiday that celebrates the day that the first group of Mormon pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley. The history of this group of people is important for many reasons. They represent unwavering faith, courage, dedication, bravery and strength. They were real people who lived, they loved, they raised families, worked hard and wanted the opportunity to worship freely. They left a great legacy, not just for their families or members of their own faith, but for all who learn about them.
Hey ya’ll! Christina from FoodApparel.com checking in. I was trying to THINK GREEN and THINK SPRING when I posted here last, and guess what? It’s GREEN outside and it’s SPRING! Yay! This homemade pesto is a sauce that features basil as one of the main ingredients. I love serving this simple sauce over angel hair pasta. It makes for a really quick dinner on a busy day. You can grill up a chicken breast and throw it in there as well. The beauty is this sauce literally takes 5 minutes to put together. And if you want to, you can put any leftovers in an ice cube tray, freeze, and then bag it up to save for another day. Nice, huh?
Spinach artichoke dip is one of my very favorites. I order it from every restaurant that has it on the menu. And I’m not too picky about the vehicle I use to transfer it from bowl to mouth. Although chips or pita slices are often the preferred choice, I have been known to reach right for a spoon. As embarrassing as it is to admit, I’ve even scraped the bowl clean with my finger. Ask my husband. He’ll tell you.
To try something a little different, I decided to prepare a sweet dip for our dessert while my mom was in town to visit. Something silky and light that would go great with a reduced fat cookie. Here’s what I came up with:
Last weekend, one of my new contributors took me to breakfast. It was awesome, for several reasons. One of them being because SHE is awesome. (Check out her blog, Lindsay Ross Blog!) The other reason is because I got to have the yummiest pancakes that I’ve been thinking/drooling about ever since. And, so I made some. Bad, bad girl. I can’t stop eating them and I’m going to gain a million pounds! Aghhh! We’re leaving on a cruise this weekend, and here I am splurging already.
So, these are mega-easy. (Mega is my new word-of-choice, just so you know.) Oh, maybe I should tell you what they are first…
Banana Pecan Pancakes with Buttermilk Syrup … a.k.a. Heaven, On Your Plate.
Do you have a Blendtec yet?? If you don’t, you should definitely put it on your wish list. They’re like the queen of all blenders… blending up everything from smoothies, to soups, to cell phones, like it’s nothing. There are several different models, ranging in price. But, a lot of people don’t know that Blendtec…
Hi there! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. I’m back today to share with you a quick & easy way to add a creamy & tangy avocado flavor to everything you desire. We always seem to have an aging avocado on the counter. Everyone loves them & so every trip to the market results in more avocados. But they have such a short window of time for perfection. I don’t want to waste them. So I have been using them in all sorts of recipes whenever I can. One of our new family favorites is this Avocado Goat Cheese Dressing.
It’s the perfect creamy dressing. My daughter (who is just crazy for salad) just loves having this in place of her regular Ranch or Italian dressing. The avocado flavor is perfect.
Good morning to all my friends at Or so she says !
It’s Ruthie from Whats Cooking with Ruthie … I’m so happy to be here sharing a delightful recipe with y’all.
I don’t know about where you live but in my neck of the woods, the days are getting longer and the temperatures are starting to warm up! Yay. It’s time to pull out those grills and get some fun in the sun going on!
This Roasted Garlic Herb Butter recipe is so versatile that you can serve it toasted on a baguette under the broiler or wrap the baguette up in foil and throw it on the grill to steam through!
Hello everyone! It’s Jana from Double the Deliciousness here to bring you another fabulous recipe!
When it starts warming up and the days start getting longer I only want to eat sandwiches and salads (much to the dismay of my meat & potatoes kind of family). And this, my friends, is one of my favorite go-to salads. My friend told me about this wonderful pear and pecan spring salad. She proceeded to tell me all the ingredients in it and I wasn’t too excited about it, but then she made it…and I tried it… and I was hooked! The sweet and savory of this salad blends perfectly with poppyseed and vinaigrette dressings! Even my kids enjoy it, and that’s saying a lot for a salad! (although 2 of them do pick out the cranberries.:))
So, do me a solid and try this one…don’t judge it before you know it or you’ll be missing out!
Hi everyone! It’s Ruthie from Whats Cooking with Ruthie and I’m excited to be here with y’all again this month! I was trying to decide what delicious recipe to share today and I figured if you are anything like me a last minute simple but elegant recipe would be awesome. I love to cook and bake AND I love to share it with my family and friends… sharing the love from my kitchen is my favorite way to tell them how important they are to me 🙂 This recipe is quick and easy and will go so well with your favorite seafoods like shrimp, crab, or lobster.
Last week, my son was flipping through my Lion House cookbook, looking for a dessert for Sunday dinner. Sunday dinner is kind of our big sit down, delicious meal. That’s right, my friends… I don’t cook every day. Some nights I make Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, some nights I make turkey sandwiches, tacos, or frozen chicken nuggets. Some nights, I don’t do anything and we just fend for ourselves. But Sunday, we feast. So all week, my kids and I are excited, planning what our big meal is going to be. Anyway, this past Sunday my son found a recipe for a Chocolate Cream Layered Cake that he wanted me to make. So, we had chicken enchiladas, apple salad, and chocolate cake for dessert.
While looking over the recipe, I quickly noticed the directions for Stabilized Whipped Cream. What the? I had never heard of such a thing. Have you??
