I guess I should share my recipe that my husband insists that I should send into the food network. He says watching all those shows have really improved my technique. I think he just wants me to cook a real meal every night. I do try something new every week that is a start right?
Here is what I did this week. I stole the Baked Salmon Recipe off the Bag of Frozen Salmon Fillets from Kroger and I made it my own. I look for inspiration everywhere.
Onion rings on the grill, say what? That’s right, you can cook fried onion rings on the grill. They are crispy and crunchy and it is so easy you will never want cook them in a deep fryer or oven again. When the summer heat hits in the south, no one wants to cook in the oven. I also no longer own a deep fryer since I decided to live a healthier lifestyle. So I was trying to decide what to have as a side with our mahi-mahi burgers and my son asked for onion rings. I thought well why not try them on the grill. And much to my delight it worked.
I love Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches but I don’t love all the carbs that come with the bread. I had seen recipes similar to the one I have created and I thought I would give it a try only instead of baking my Philly Cheesesteak stuffed green peppers in the oven I decided to cook them on the grill.
green peppers (1 for each person)
thin sliced beef
mozzarella cheese, shredded
First wash and then slice all of your green peppers in half. Remove the seeds and white fleshy parts.
In a skillet, cook the sliced beef and onions until brown. Scoop the meat and onions into the green peppers and top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
Then cook the peppers on a grill tray in the grill until the cheese is melted. The sides and bottoms may brown some. When the cheese is melted your peppers are ready to eat.
This is such an easy dinner to throw together. If you kids are picky, then you can just let them have the meat and cheese without the green pepper. That is how we do it. If your kids like raw peppers but not cooked ones you could always just slice a pepper and serve it with the meat and cheese. I like dinners that I can tweak just a little bit to make the kids happy.

Some nights I just want to throw dinner together quickly, easily, and efficiently. Those nights are usually on Sundays, or my family’s “day off”. I’m the one that does the cooking and cleaning so on Sundays I want to relax with everyone else so I pick meals that are fast and easy, but I still want something tasty! That is exactly what my Chili Cheese Dog Casserole Recipe is. Its one of my family’s favorite meals. We don’t eat it much because it isn’t exactly great for you, but we have to indulge a little everyone once in awhile right? 😉Continue reading
A lot of you know that I have recently started doing Weight Watchers and I’m always looking for yummy recipe to share with my family and with you guys! This week I made a delicious melt-in-your-mouth, make-your-house-smell-amazing Pot roast that everyone in my family loved and I’m sure yours will too! I use my crock pot at least twice a week. I don’t know about you but I have much better energy in the morning, so if I can have dinner cooking by 9 am it’s a win win for everyone. Continue reading
In my family, corned beef and cabbage is a favorite dish to serve for St. Patrick’s Day. I grew up in central PA where sometimes we do things a little different. We have always made our corned beef and cabbage with canned corned beef. In fact, it wasn’t until I was in my early 20’s that I even knew that corned beef could be bought in the fresh meat department at the grocery store and just means that the cut of beef was cured with salt crystals called corns. Sad isn’t it? I still have never made this dish any other way. I know it may sound a little strange but it makes a delicious hearty stew. My family loves this Irish Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe.
Head of cabbage, chopped
2 cans corned beef
5-6 large potatoes, peeledand diced
4 cups water
Salt and pepper to taste
Garlic to taste
Put all ingredients in a large soup/stew pot. Bring to a boil. Boil until potoatoes and cabbage are tender (about 15-20 min). Simmer as long as you like, serve hot. You could also make this dish in a crockpot.
Just in case you really want to feel like you are dining in central Pennsylvania, you should have some crusty bread with homemade apple butter to go along with your Corned Beef and Cabbage. Oh and you should eat the leftovers for day and days and days until no one wants Corned Beef and Cabbage until next year. Happy St. Patricks’s Day! Don’t forget to wear green, you don’t want to get pinched.
I hope you enjoy this recipe that is one of our family’s St. Patrick’s Day traditions. We like to have fun and what better fun is there than good food, good friends, and great family fun. And since there is a little bit of Irish in everybody, please share with us some of your recipes, superstitions, or activities.
