Marinated Skirt Steak with Tomato Relish

Marinated Skirt Steak with Tomato Relish

It’s been a hot week here in Portland.  We’re in the 90′s and that is 10 degrees higher than our average temperature for this time of year.  I’m not complaining but when the temperatures get that high my desire to turn on the stove or oven go way down.  To almost non-existent!  Thank goodness for our grill.  Keep that heat outside! Today’s recipe uses skirt steak.  Skirt steak is a nice inexpensive cut of meat but it definitely needs to marinate.  I marinated it over night.  I would give it [Continue Reading...]

Salt & Pepper Red Potatoes

Salt & Pepper Potatoes

Because I believe every blog posts deserves pretty pictures today is a Recipe Redo. Although these potatoes might not be the prettiest potatoes you ever make but they are delicious. They are simple and delicious! Note:  In the past few years since the post originated here on the blog I have learned to eat a few more potato dishes!  I even ate some of these potatoes when I remade them for this redo post! If you know me at all you know I don’t eat a lot of potatoes.  But because I am married [Continue Reading...]

Ice Cream Sandwich Bar

Ice Cream Sandwich Bar - Copy - Copy

Yesterday I shared with you that I put together an Ice Cream Sandwich Bar for our neighborhood 4th of July celebration.  I have actually done this before and shared it with you here.  The kids have a great time coming up with their own creations! Last year we did an Ice Cream Soda Bar which was fun too. For this year’s ice cream sandwich bar I had four different types of cookies:  chocolate cake mix cookies, Funfetti cake mix cookies, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and sugar cookies.  I usually do [Continue Reading...]

CAKE MIX COOKIE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES

I volunteered to be in charge of dessert for our cul de sac 4th of July celebration.  Celebrating together as neighbors has been a tradition for as long as we have lived in our home – over 20 years. It is a much anticipated party!  I decided I needed to do something really fun for dessert.  I love getting my guests involved in putting their food together so I decided to provide all the makings for ice cream sandwiches.  I’ll be back tomorrow with all the details on how I [Continue Reading...]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a lot of hobbies, things I like to do.  The list includes, sewing, gardening, reading, scrapbooking, family history, learning French, and I am sure there are a few more. Also on that list is experimenting with chocolate chip cookie recipes.  I love a good chocolate chip cookie and over the years I have tried dozens and dozens of different recipes.  I probably try 2-3 a month.  I always think I am going to find a better, more perfect chocolate chip cookie.  Most of the times I don’t and [Continue Reading...]

Steak Bites

Steak Bittes

  Today I’ve got a recipe redo for you.  The photos in the original post were so bad it just had to have a redo.  I had actually taken the original photos at the dinner table as we were sitting down to eat and the lighting was terrible.  I have made these twice in the last few weeks because they are so easy and delicious.  If you are eating Paleo or Whole30 these work great. Here’s the original post with new photos! I have a confession to make! I skipped [Continue Reading...]
