July 4th Recipe Ideas...

I can't believe July 4th is THIS week.
Here are a few ideas I put together for the main course 
of your party or BBQ...


First up is my absolute favorite, STEAK.
This recipe is a new marinade that I recently tried and has
become a favorite for our family...


You can't go wrong with Falling off the Bone BBQ Ribs.
This is a delicious easy recipe.
You can make the ribs the day before your company comes in the CROCK POT
and then finish them off on the grill while your guests are arriving...


Chicken Kabobs are always fun and yummy.
You'll love the marinade for this chicken...



In the mood for some burgers?  
Well, here are a few from my Foodie Friends.

First up is a delicious Buffalo Turkey Burger from Michelle who
can be found on From Calculus to Cupcakes...



Here's a Bison Burger from Marlys who blogs over at This and That...


Jenny from In the Kitchen with Jenny makes a different type
of burger on her grill with her Meatloaf Patties...





Tomorrow we're all about sharing Side Dishes 
for your Independence Day BBQ.

And if you're looking for something FUN to do with the kids,
why not head over to Daily Dish Magazine

Twice Baked Stuffed Potatoes...



Twice Baked Stuffed Potatoes from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.
My family loves Twice Baked Stuffed Potatoes, well except for my son.

Until one day he came home from school and said that they made a great side
dish in his Home Economic's Class.  It's not really called that, but I can't remember the
new name for Home Economic's.  
He began to describe to me this "new" side dish that he loved.
I looked at him and said, "You mean like the twice baked potatoes I make and you refuse to eat?"

It seems the ones he made at school had BACON in them.
The ones I usually make don't.  So I've added bacon to my recipe and he now LOVES them.
We eat them probably once a week.

Recipe: Delicious Steak Marinade

You're going to love this delicious marinade for your steak! 
The most delicious marinade for steak from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.  I love using skirt steak and then slicing it against the grain.  Reserve some of the marinade to boil down to drizzle on top of the steak after it's cooked.

Do you have a favorite marinade for grilled steak?

A few weeks ago I asked my readers on my Walking on Sunshine Facebook Page if they could share a recipe for steak marinade. So many delicious recipes and ideas were shared, that I couldn't make up my mind on which one to choose...so I chose one and then added a few extra ingredients.

The recipe I came up with is a combination from the ones that everyone shared and then I added a few other ingredients that I love.

Afghanistan...

Sharing with you a recent photo of my Colonel...


As most of you know he's back in Afghanistan until next year.

We've been able to speak to him through the computer a few times,
and it really is wonderful.  One day soon he'll get on a computer that has a camera.

Bakers Chocolate Bliss Cheesecake


Bakers Chocolate Bliss Cheesecake from Walking on Sunshine.

What is your favorite dessert?
One of my favorite desserts is cheesecake. I made this recipe for for Chocolate Bliss Cheesecake the first time for our Christmas Eve Dinner. 

It was delicious and amazing!  A few weeks ago my daughter started an internship and I thought we needed to celebrate.  And what better way to celebrate than with chocolate cheesecake

This recipe is from the back of Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate box and it is truly decadent and delicious! 



print recipe

Chocolate Cheesecake

INGREDIENTS:

  • 18 Oreo cookies, crushed (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 TBS. butter, melted
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 8 ounces Baker's Semi-Sweet baking chocolate, melted and cooled slightly

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Pre-Heat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Mix cookie crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch spring-form pan.
  3. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer until blended. Add chocolate; mix well.
  4. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended; pour over crust.
  5. Bake 55 min. to 1 hour or until center is almost set.
  6. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim.
  7. Refrigerate 4 hours.
Notes:
  1. It helps to bake the cheesecake with a water bath. You can do this two ways. One way is to place a roasting pan with hot water on the oven rack below the cheesecake in the oven. Make sure you check on the water level in the roasting pan while the cheesecake bakes. You may need to refill.
  2. The other way is to wrap the outside of the cheesecake pan in a double layer of foil, covering the underside and extending all the way to the top. Then place the wrapped pan in a large roasting pan, and pour hot water into roasting pan—to a depth of 2 inches or about halfway up the sides of cheesecake pan.

Freezer French Toast



Easy recipe for French Toast that you can freeze from Walking on Sunshine.

One of my favorite breakfasts to enjoy is French Toast.
Nothing fancy like the French Toast Casserole that is so popular here on the blog,
but just good old-fashioned bread dipped in an egg mixture and sprinkled with 
some cinnamon/sugar topped with warm syrup.  
(And maybe a little bit of butter)

I like to make extra to freeze so on busy mornings all we need to do is pull a few slices
of already made French Toast from the freezer and breakfast is ready1

2 Corinthians 6:18

Happy Father's Day!

A day that can bring joy or sorrow to many people.
This will be my 5th year without my father and not a day goes by that I don't think of him...


This is the second year in a row that my Colonel is separated from us.
Last year he was with the cadets for over a month training in the state of Washington
and this year he is back in Afghanistan...



 I know there are also many missing their fathers this year as well. 
A few of my friends have recently lost their fathers and the pain is still very great for them.



I wanted to share with you a verse that the Lord gave me shortly after my father passed away:

And, "I will be a Father to you, 
and you will be my sons and daughters, 
says the Lord Almighty."

2 Corinthians 6:18

Isn't this comforting to know that even though our earthly fathers are no 
longer with us, we still have our heavenly father!

He has always been and will forever be with us.

A wonderful promise and something worth celebrating...


Enjoy your day and your memories!

Recipe: Crock Pot Oatmeal

Crock Pot Oatmeal with apples, cinnamon and sugar cooks while you sleep! 
Crock Pot Oatmeal with apples and cinnamon sugar from Walking on Sunshine Recipes

Today I'm sharing with you a recipe I made the other day for Crock Pot Oatmeal. 

I love a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast and I love my crock pot!  I tried one of those recipes that makes oatmeal in your crock pot overnight...as you sleep.  I added chopped apples and a mixture of cinnamon and sugar and it was delicious!

You put all the ingredients for your oatmeal in your crock pot at night and set the crock pot to low and the oatmeal cooks while you sleep.  Breakfast is ready for you in the morning...how easy is that?
