BlueberryThis is a basic blueberry buckle recipe. Anthony couldn't remember what it was called but knew he wanted me to make it again. So he asked me to make the belt.
Banana Nut BreadThis is the first banana bread recipe that I made that came out looking like the picture!
Low Sugar Strawberry Rhubarb CrunchI searched to find a recipe that would use up some extra rhubarb I searched and this popped up. I usually will use Splenda to make this.
Apple Onion Pork ChopsThis recipe was found because I needed more crock pot meals. I was trying to make crock pot meals on Tuesdays and Wednesday because I work late. This is one of the favorite Tuesday/Wednesday meals. If I have alot of morning time I will do it as written but is I don't. I will just throw everything but the butternut squash into the crockpot. It still comes out good. I would just cook the squash seperately.
No Bake Paleo BitesI was bored one day but I wanted a treat. So I found these bites. I am not sure if mine come out the way they are supposed to but I keep mine in the freezer and they are YUMMY!
Steak!!For Steve's birthday one year I was cooking at home but the party was going to be at the boat. So I was marinating at home and trying to find things to grill on the boat. Finally I came upon this recipe. It has changed over time and I don't always cook the mushrooms (Steve hates mushrooms) but everyone is happy when I make this.
Sausage and sun Dried Tomato QuicheThis is a great go to breakfast quiche. Made on a day off, it can be breakfast (or even dinner) for multiple days! I am in usually too much of hurry to "Prebake" the crust and it still comes out fine.
Crab CakesOne year we caught so many cod fish I was in search of some new way to cook it. I found a crab cake recipe and changed it a little and added the cod fish instead of crab. Sometimes I do still make crab cakes (with the imitation crab 1 bag, never canned) but we like the cod cakes.
Grilled PineappleWe were on the boat and had just finished dinner when Abby came out of the boat with a pineapple. We then debated for a little bit on how to eat it. Our grill was still hot so we tried it. The recipe has changed and marinating does make it much better but it can be cooked right away too. The pineapple can also be cut into wedges and skewered then grilled.
Cocoa Banana BitesThese are great to make on Sunday and put into snack size baggies for lunches or a snack on the run. The recipe can be made as muffins, bread or a bar pan.
Cinnamon RollsFor a while these were a Sunday Morning staple then sleeping later and running out the door to church without breakfast started happening. I'm hoping we will get back to cinnamon rolls for breakfast again soon! A simple milk / powdered sugar glaze can be added.
Peanut Butter FrostingMy Grammy used to frost birthday cakes with peanut butter frosting and I loved it! Unfortunately I never thought to ask her how she made it. This is the closest I could come to the taste I remember.
Blueberry SauceWe have a friend that has blueberries. One of my favorite summer things to do is to pick blueberries! We usually end up with way to many. This recipe makes alot of sauce. It is great for crepes!
Sugar Coated PecansI make these for Thanksgiving every year. Some years I give them as gifts, some years they get eaten before I can get them into containers.
Peanut Butter HaystacksThese are super yummy. I've made these into bird nests for Easter and also just ate them as little treats. You can add a few chocolate chips in there to and then they will be a darker brown. Anyway you eat them, they are good!
Smooth Sweet TeaThis is the Best Iced Tea! It has a lot of sugar in it so I don't drink it much anymore but I do still crave it on summer days.
Shrimp GumboThere are a lot of ingredients in this and it takes a fairly long time to make but it is very good. I have to make this when no one is around because everyone eats the bacon before I can get it into the Gumbo.
CrepesThese are great for dinner, breakfast even dessert. It all depends on what you put in them! The possibilities are endless.
Salsa ChickenA Crockpot recipe that is easy and can be assembled quickly in the morning before work/school. Green Giant has a type of corn called "Mexicorn" and it is great in this recipe.
Chicken FingersThese are great to make ahead of time and bring along. I have made these for boat trips, ski trips and road trips. They are good reheated or cold.
'Bourbon" ChickenEveryone knows that chicken gets boring after a while, so you've got to change it up every now and then. This is my change up recipe.
Sour Cream Pork ChopsSuper. I added crm mush soup to pan juices sont know if it was needed maybe omit next time for calorie purposes. do not add flour directly into pan juices it clumps!
Lobster PieOne summer we had more lobsters than we knew what to do with. (A real problem I know!) So I kept trying different things to make with the lobster meat. This recipe came about. The stuffing is also good wrapped into a cod fillet or baked with scallops.
Turkey BrineFor Thanksgiving one year we were going to have approx 25 people at the house. Steve and I decided to cook one turkey in the oven, a breast in the crockpot and then fry one. This was an effort to make sure we had enough food but we also wanted to see which way cooked the best turkey. I like cooking a turkey in the oven so I researched how to make a moist turkey and many people swear by the brine. So I brined the turkey for a day and a half before cooking and it was absolutely delicious. The fried turkey also came out good, so we ended up with a tie and enough food for everyone.
