Weekly Tips...Frozen Herbs

This week's tip is all about herbs.  I know we're in the middle of summer and everyone's gardens are growing beautifully.  You have perfect planters full of herbs sitting on your back porch that you use every day for all kinds of delicious meals you prepare for your family.  

Or sometimes, you're like me and you plant the basil right in front of the sunflower seeds and then all of a sudden the basil that was once thriving so beautifully is now shriveling up and dying because it's sitting under the "shade" of gigantic sunflowers and not getting the proper sunlight it needs to grow any longer.  

THIS tip is for YOU...

Chicken Pesto Kabobs

It's been a rough couple of weeks here for me.  First I was hospitalized for an intestinal infection and then last week I had heart ablation surgery to correct an irregular heartbeat I've had for years.  I'm happy to say that the ablation went well and I am off my heart medication and my heart rate has been pretty normal over the past few days.

With all that being said, I'm happy I've found a few yummy EASY recipes to be able to prepare for my family.  These Chicken Pesto Kabobs are a great recipe...

Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party #104

Welcome back to another week of delicious food and recipes!

I cannot believe it's been a whole week since I have published anything on the blog!  Last Friday was my birthday and by evening I knew something was wrong.  I spent the following three days in the hospital 
fighting yet another intestinal infection.  

I tried to keep up with everything, but sometimes you just need
to listen to your body and slow down.  

But here we are...back for another week with
Foodie Friends Friday...

Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party #103

Welcome back to another week of delicious food and recipes!


How is your summer going so far?
Things are pretty good here in our little corner of the world.  

#ThrowbackThursday...Corn Fiesta Salad

Here is another Throwback Thursday Recipe that is perfect for summer BBQs and picnics with family and friends.   I've made this recipe a few times and I always enjoy it and so does my family.  It's fresh, delicious and easy. AND it looks so pretty and summery!  Fresh corn is available right now...so why not pick up a few ears and put this quick salad together.  I know you'll enjoy it.

I shared this recipe last summer as part of a July 4th roundup, so I think the recipe became lost with all the other menu ideas.  It deserves to have a post all on its own!

Chocolate Glazed Donuts

A few months ago I purchased one of those donut pans that seem to be the craze everywhere.  I purchased it on Amazon and it was really inexpensive.  Took me awhile but I finally made some donuts and it was so easy and really delicious...
