Roasted Cauliflower Taco Bites

Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable, that we really have enjoyed in so many recipes. This is a very simple recipe to prepare and takes very little time, it is a great recipe to fix when you need a last minute appetizer. If you are expecting a crowd you might want to double the recipe because it will go really fast. If you should have left overs just serve it in a wonderful salad the next day, it is a real winner.

Summertime Sweets Recipe Collection

In the summertime the living is easy and we do love our sweets. There is really nothing better than sitting on the back porch enjoying a nice glass of iced tea and a lovely summertime sweet for an afternoon treat or an evening dessert. Today we want to share some of our favorites with you. Some of these recipes have been handed down through generations but for sure they have been kitchen tested in my kitchen by family and friends for many years.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 5-21-17

One of my boys will be coming home this week for a visit so you can guess from the menu what he has requested and of course I will be delighted to make that special meal for him. I love it when family and friends request their favorite meal or a dish that they saw on the blog. I am happy to be a meal planner so I can spend more quality time visiting with family and friends and not running to the store at the last minute to get the meal together. Don't you just love making special meals for family and friends?

Heirloom Pasta Salad

We grow Heirloom Tomatoes in our garden and we even save our seed from one year to the next to ensure the purity of the seed. If you are ever able to try a Heirloom Tomato then you will never forget the distinctive flavor. Today I have combined a great dressing along with some other vegetables and a farfalle pasta to make this delicious salad. This salad could be a great luncheon entree and no doubt I will be taking this one to a covered dish event very soon. We really enjoyed this salad and sure hope you do.

Pineapple Shrimp Ka Bobs

We are close enough to the gulf that we are able to get some beautiful gulf coast shrimp. One of the recipes that we enjoy for these delicious shrimp is Pineapple Shrimp Ka Bobs. The combination of the fresh pineapple and the spicy seasons in the marinate make this recipe one of our favorites. We like to grill the Ka Bobs then transfer them to foil packets to keep warm for our guest. This will feed a crowd or a special dinner for two.
