Spicy Honey Lime Chicken

The flavor of honey and lime is a favorite here at the cottage. This Spicy Honey Lime Chicken is a gentle blend of spices and finishes with a great glaze of honey and lime. This recipe can be grilled,baked or cooked in a skillet, for this presentation today we are grilling. Our Granddaughter Lauren and Great Granddaughter Ella June Bug have been here for Grandma's Summer Camp, June Bug is the rub mixer and Lauren is the Grill Master for the recipe today. We just love this dish and sure hope you will enjoy it as much as we have. We are serving our Honey Lime Chicken with this awesome Texas Peach Salsa.

Texas Peach Salsa

We are so fortunate to live a short driving distance to some of the best peaches in Texas. We get so excited when the peaches are ready, the season is not that long so we have to enjoy every day of the season. One of the dishes that we love is our Texas Peach Salsa, a salsa that can be used as a dip, as a side dish for any meal or as a garnish for a very special grilled meat or vegetable. Our Granddaughter Stephanie has been here for Grandma's Summer Camp and this salsa was one of our project dishes that she was able to help us with. We love this salsa and sure hope you enjoy it!

Whats For Dinner Next Week 7-26-15

What a great week we had last week, lots of fun times around my birthday, my friends surprised me with a day trip to a fantastic new shopping market in a near by city. We had so much fun and I am so excited about finding a new market place, without having to drive so far into the metro. The garden vegetables abound and I am using lots of fresh vegetables in my menu this week, plus we will be in the outdoor kitchen grilling. What is your favorite vegetable to cook with this time of the year, and are you doing any canning? I love hearing from my readers, so leave me a comment or send me an email.

Buttermilk Ice Box Pie

I always pay attention when someone says Buttermilk Pie, I have never had a slice of Buttermilk Pie that I didn't just love. This pie is very easy to put together and absolutely delicious. With a rich smooth filling and a hint of lemon this pie wakes up the taste buds of any dessert lover. Just put it in the refrigerator and serve it ice cold. It brings back old fashioned memories of taking this pie out of the ice box on Grandma's back porch. We love this special treat and sure hope you will enjoy it!

Garden Waffle with Italian Cheese Sauce

We love Waffle's and will often times have them for lunch or in the evening for a very informal supper. I wanted to create a waffle that could incorporate some of our wonderful garden vegetables.  This is a delicate blend of garden vegetables with a balsamic sauce with some fresh garden herbs.  While the crisp waffle is still hot we drizzle a delicious Italian Cheese Sauce on top.  This is a fabulous waffle that can be served on any occasion, my husband has already asked for it to be put on the menu again very soon.  I am very excited to present this new recipe to you today and sure hope you enjoy it!
