Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls – the easiest way to enjoy your favorite morning pastry!
Something glorious happened the other day.
Something that hasn’t happen in 7 years.
I actually laid down in my own bed in the middle of the day and fell asleep. For a whole 40 minutes.
Naturally I woke up suddenly and thought: what the heck just happened? Did I really fall asleep in the middle of the day? Huh, that’s actually kind of awesome!
Let’s make cinnamon rolls.
4th of July No Bake Cheesecake – one of the easiest desserts you can make! This red, white and blue treat is perfect to celebrate the Independence Day!
When there is a celebration or a holiday coming up, I always consider making a cheesecake as a dessert. It’s my ultimate favorite treat and always a hit!
Since 4th of July is coming up, I thought that a no bake cheesecake should make an appearance. Easy, fun, festive and of course, absolutely delicious.
You will love this cheesecake! It’s easy to make, doesn’t need baking and it’s fun to decorate! Our kids loved all of the sprinkles!
KFC Coleslaw Copycat – make your restaurant favorite right in your kitchen! Perfect for the summer BBQ’s and potlucks!
Last weekend, we kicked off the summer with our annual BBQ bash! There were ribs on the grill, corn on the cob and coleslaw in the bowls. There were s’mores and sticky fingers and lots of fun and laughter!
We live in Kansas and as true mid-westerners, we love our BBQ. My Hubby takes pride in his ribs (baby back, beef, short ribs – any kind) and has his technique down to perfection. I take care of the sides and dessert. One side needed some improvement. The coleslaw.
We have our restaurant favorites. See these Red Lobster Copycat Biscuits. While the fried chicken and KFC can be a hit or miss, the coleslaw is always spot on. We love it! Of course, I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t try to recreate it at home!
Toffee Heath Bar Chocolate Bark – chocolate covered toffee bits sprinkled over chocolate bark. Your new favorite sweet snack!
One of my favorite candy bars is Heath bar. It’s also one of the hardest for me to find in the store. I have no idea why! For the past few months I have been trying to find it so I can finally make this bark. It’s been on my to-make recipe list for way too long! The summer is a perfect excuse to make it since it’s a no-bake treat!
I almost gave up until one day, while shopping with my kids, my oldest daughter grabbed a bag of mini Heath bars in the candy isle and said: Were you looking for this?
Well, yes. Yes, I have. Taking them shopping with me is finally starting to pay off!!
Easy S’Mores Ice Cream – easy ice cream with toasted marshmallows, bits of graham crackers and swirls of chocolate fudge sauce! You will go crazy for this ice cream!
The first day of Summer is this weekend. If there is one thing that says summer its s’mores! We LOVE s’mores! I always have the big marshmallows in my cupboard and as soon as my Hubby fires up the grill – I try to sneak in and toast some marshmallows to sandwich them the ooey-gooey way between chocolate and graham crackers.
I have to say, I like my marshmallows almost charred. There is nothing like the smoky taste of toasted marshmallows. Love it!!! Besides the melted chocolate (I will always take chocolate first over anything else), the gooey marshmallow is my favorite part of s’mores!
As I have been obsessed with my new ice cream maker from Hamilton Beach (review and giveaway coming next week so stay tuned!!), I knew I wanted to combine summer’s two favorite treats and make S’Mores Ice cream. With the toasted marshmallow churned in.
Fajita Stir Fry with Lime Quinoa – easy Summer stir fry with Mexican flavors! Your family will love it! Also, enter to win Circulon Acclaim 12-inch Covered Wok!
During summer, my family is all about simple meals with fresh ingredients. Meals that don’t take much time to prepare, are loaded with veggies and ones that are healthy and fill you up with energy to enjoy the outdoors!
Recently, I was asked by Circulon to create a dish with Mexican flavors using their 12″ wok with cover. It was a perfect assignment for me since we love Mexican food! And after the recent success of adding quinoa to enchiladas, one of our favorite dinners, I decided to go similar route. This time I flavored the quinoa with lime and I don’t think I will ever make the plain one again!
I can’t even begin to tell you how much we loved this dish! The lime quinoa is absolutely fantastic! So fresh and so good for you! The fajita chicken comes together in a flash even though you make the seasoning from scratch. The red peppers and onion cook in just minutes and add sweetness to the dish. It’s a perfect summer meal!
