Super Simple Coleslaw Recipe

Super Simple Coleslaw Recipe

It’s officially coleslaw season again!  As summer approaches, our dinner menus begin to change.  This is the time of year when my husband starts grilling and I simply have to prepare side dishes.  For me, it’s a bonus because I have a recipe box filled with summer sides, including fresh salads and vegetables.  After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is put together a whole meal.

Our local farmer’s market just opened and, with all the fresh vegetables available, our family’s dinner side dishes no longer consist of frozen vegetables.  We’ll be enjoying zucchini, tomatoes, cabbage, radishes, green beans, bell peppers, peas, cucumbers, and asparagus fresh from the farm.

This family favorite simple coleslaw recipe is one which I adapted from my days of following The Flylady.  Instead of chopped cabbage and carrots, the recipes calls for these ingredients to be shredded.  My family is not fond of sweet coleslaw so this coleslaw, which is more on the tangy side, pleases everyone.

Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more…]

Toll House Cookie Skillet Recipe

I am the first to admit that I love a good cookie. What is better than one cookie? How about a Toll House Skillet Cookie?

The truth behind my love of this recipe is that I love the idea of baking cookies. However, once I make a sheet or two, I am over it. Once I’ve mixed up the batter, I don’t want to be getting up every ten minutes to take cookies out of the oven and fill up the cookie sheets again. That’s why I decided try a cookie skillet instead of individual cookies.

After seeing the idea on Pinterest, I decided it was worth a try. I loaded the next batch of cookie batter into a skilled and baked it until done. This is favorite new way to bake cookies. [Read more…]

I hope everyone had an awesome 4th of July!  I don’t know about you but here in TN it rained pretty much ALL weekend.  Even with the rain, we still managed to shoot off some fireworks and grill in between the bouts of rain.  I am a very recent steak eater (never did like it until I gave it another try a few months ago) so this weekend was my first time having steak grilled at home.  I knew I wanted to make it special.

At the restaurant we went to where I first had a steak, they put this really yummy bacon garlic butter on their steak.  After trying it, I just knew I had to work on recreating this taste at home. You guys, not only is this super easy to make, it really adds some awesome flavor to steak. You could also spread it on some toast, use it in savory recipes, and more! I wish I would have tried it sooner.  Are you ready for how easy this is? Really it takes about 5 minutes, ha!  [Read more…]

At 2:30pm today it will be the official start of summer in our home! It’s my favorite time of year. As a WAHM I get the luxury of spending the summer hanging out with my daughter. This means days of playing at the park, staying up late to play Mario Kart together, and making lunches together. This also means that my usual lunch of peanut butter and crackers just isn’t going to cut it. So I’ve started meal planning and thinking of things that are quick, easy, and that we will both like.  [Read more…]
