Perfecting Yellow Summer Squash

Yum
Perfecting Yellow Summer Squash ~ squash is delightfully sweet and delicious and I've been doing it wrong, until now!


When I was little my parents would insist we eat what was put on our plates; that's what baby boomers were taught. There were starving children in the world and we were lucky to have food so just keep it shut and eat it. The alternatives were (depending on which type of parents you had): you don't eat it, you go to bed. Or, you sit there until you eat it and the dreaded threat of no dessert unless you ate it and ultimately the follow through with that. So it was with summer squash. As a child I hated it. So much so I gagged on it. However later in life, probably in my teens I tried it again and it was if the flood gates of my taste buds opened up and my attitude toward squash changed. A 360 degree turn around! I could not get enough of fresh summer squash!

Step-by-Step: Garden Tomato Sauce

Yum
Step-by-Step: Garden Tomato Sauce ~ use it for the base of your red sauce all year long!


How many of you have room for a garden and plant your own tomatoes? We are lucky that we have some room and I am extremely grateful that my husband loves to garden. He has planted tomatoes in his garden since before we were married and I've been the lucky beneficiary of fresh garden grown tomatoes throughout our whole marriage. There's nothing like a tomato picked right from the vine. It happens to be my favorite fruit. Yes, the tomato is actually a fruit for those of you who don't know that nifty little fact.

Strawberry Jalapeno Grilled Chicken

Yum
Strawberry Jalapeno Grilled Chicken  ~ kicked up flavors from the strawberry jalapeno fruit spread makes this a winning grilling recipe!


After doing a sponsored post for Brie and Strawberry Jalapeno Crispbreads Snacks I had some of the fruit spread left. With some garden vegetables available and a package of on sale chicken I began formulating this idea for Strawberry Jalapeno Grilled Chicken. With the high heat and humidity that we've been experiencing, this seemed like the perfect summer time meal. Served with some rice it's a completely wholesome and inexpensive meal.

Brie and Strawberry Jalapeno Crispbread Snacks ~ and a friendly game of setback!





We have a group of friends and we love to get together at each others homes and play setback (It's a card game just in case you don't know.) It's generally a men's versus women's team and outside of enjoying a night of wins, losses, bragging and teasing we mostly enjoy the game night snacks that everyone brings!
