Yogurt Marinaded Chicken Skewers

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

An easy to make chicken skewer perfect for the hot days of summer. Yogurt Marinaded Chicken on skewers keeps this recipe moist and full of flavor.

Yogurt Marinaded Chicken Skewers
             We made Yogurt Marinaded Chicken Skewers the other night when it was way too hot to think about turning on the oven or even the stove top for that matter.
It's one of those recipes that's perfect for a change up from the traditional BBQ chicken and one of my easy go to recipes for the grill.
I made this one with greek yogurt, cilantro, garlic and ginger for a flavor explosion.
The yogurt helps keep the chicken moist and full of flavor.
If you don't have plain greek yogurt feel free to use plain yogurt, I've used both over the years and they both turn out tasty.
Here's the recipe for these moist little chunks of chicken on a stick aka BBQ Yogurt Marinaded Chicken Skewers.

Creamy Lemon Cheesecake Crumb Bars are the perfect dessert recipe! Always a favorite for Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving or Christmas! They are great made ahead and enjoyed frozen for a cold treat on a hot day! Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.
LJ was home the other day and driving me crazy because he was bored so I decided to put him to work in the kitchen making these amazing Creamy Lemon Cheesecake Crumb Bars..

Totally worth turning the oven on during a hot day! 
The crumb topping has been stuck in my mind ever since I first saw these over on her page.

Whats not to love about creamy lemon filling, cheesecake and crumb topping? So, so, so, so good!

One Skillet Chicken Macaroni and Cheese With A Gluten Free Option

Friday, July 11, 2014

One Skillet Chicken Macaroni and Cheese is a super easy to make dinner option sure to please even the most pickiest eaters. This recipe includes a gluten free option. 

One Skillet Chicken Macaroni and Cheese with a Gluten Free Option
         I needed something quick and easy to make the other night and the kids were in the mood for macaroni and cheese.
We already had things with hamburger in it two nights in a row so I decided to change up my One Skillet Cheeseburger Helper with chicken breast and a few tweaks, let me tell you it was devoured in 2.2 seconds.
Always a sign of a good thing! 
If you have a gluten free household this dish is easily made gluten free using gluten free brown rice noodles.
I've made different variations of this dish using traditional noodles and Gluten Free Brown Rice Noodles and no one can tell the difference.
I love how easy and simple this is to make, some nights the less fuss the better.
It takes only a few more minutes then the boxed stuff and is 10 times tastier plus it's a one skillet dish meaning very few dishes! 

Blueberry Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake

Wednesday, July 9, 2014
Blueberry Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake
This Blueberry Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake didn't last long in our house. Colt and the kids all decided they needed 2 pieces for dessert last night and we aren't talking little itty bitty slices. We are talking about full-sized huge slices Colt had cut.

As if Colt hadn't had enough coffee cake he was standing in the kitchen at 2 am eating out of the pan, I may or may not have joined in on a few bites..  I decided to add a cinnamon swirl to the middle of the cake to make sure there was a little bit of cinnamon crumb topping in every bite along with the blueberries.

It doesn't get much better than this my friends.

Tortellini Pesto Pasta Salad

Sunday, July 6, 2014

A perfect cold pasta salad to enjoy on a warm day. Tortellini Pesto Salad is made in the morning or night before and refrigerates until dinner time.

Tortellini Pesto Pasta Salad

With the temperatures heating up outside cold food is on the menu and this weeks Sunday Supper theme is Chillin with lots of tasty chilled recipes to help get dinner on the table.

Tortellini Pesto Salad is a favorite chilled pasta salad and a must make for summer dinner or an easy lunch.

It's perfect to make early in the morning while the weathers cool and pop it into the fridge for an easy, no fuss dinner after a day of playing in the sun. 

The sun-dried tomatoes in the dish add a nice little touch of sweetness that pairs perfectly with the pesto and feta.

The kids were a little confused and kept thinking they were craisins. I received a few strange looks before the kids confronted me with why I had added craisins to the pasta salad. They looked at me like I was crazy when I told them I made this several times last summer and they loved it but after a few bites they were headed back for seconds and my lunch for the next day was devoured by my ravenous teens.

Make sure to add this to your summer dinner rotation,  it's tossed together in under 20 minutes! 

Grilled Peach Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Smokey sweet Grilled Peach Salad with a Raspberry Vinaigrette is an easy to make salad perfect for summer.

Grilled Peach Salad With Raspberry Vinaigrette

Grilled ripe peaches are one of my summer time favorites and a staple when we go camping.
If you've never had them your missing out.
It's a sweet and smokey mouthful you'll never forget! 
We first had a Grilled Peach Salad last year at the Salish Lodge for our Anniversary and it's lingered on my mind since..
So when Colt came home with ripe juicy peaches for me the other night I knew a Grilled Peach Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette was in the works.
This salad goes incredibly well with goats cheese or feta if your looking for a little more complexity.
We just decided on this particular night the simplicity of this salad was just what we were looking for.
