When Des and I went to Disneyland last month one of our FAVORITE things we ate were the skewers at Bengal BBQ. Bengal BBQ is located right across from the Tiki Room and they serve the most delicious and fresh food. Let me tell you, it is such a welcomed treat after eating churros, corn dogs, and ice cream cones. I knew right away that I needed to re-create this at home. At the park we ordered Chieftain Chicken Skewer and the Safari Skewer. The Chieftan Chicken Skewer is a simple . . .
I have a really fun recipe for you today! I have some really creative gourmet twists on the classic hot dog - perfect for a hot dog bar this 4th of July. If you've missed some of our potluck ideas this week, we have them all linked here. The Inspiration for Gourmet Hot Dogs A few years ago my husband and I took a trip to Kauai. Near our hotel was a little hot dog shack called Puka Dog. We ate there on a whim and we were hooked! We had to go back again before we left. They are unique . . .
I grew up with a family that loved to hunt and fish and camp. I have really fond memories of fishing with my dad and then cooking up our catch for dinner. Some have an aversion to sea food, but I kind of adore it - especially salmon. It is packed with healthy omegas and leaves you satisfied without feeling like you ate a brick. Salmon with a Kick I've been making this recipe every since I was a newlywed. It's fast and tasty, which is kind of my motto. The combination of the flaky salmon, . . .
Skewers are one of our favorite dinners! These rainbow steak skewers are really a staple at our house, and they are such a great way to eat the rainbow and your veggies! My mother-in-law gave me the greatest tip when it comes to cooking skewered food - skewer all of the one veggie or protein on one skewer. That way you can cook them evenly without burning the onions while cooking the steak. This way you can remove items sooner or later during your grill session and everything will come out . . .
Have you guy jumped in on the unicorn craze? I've seen unicorn hot chocolate, unicorn ice cream, unicorn toast - and a variety of other pastel rainbow foods lately. I'm a mom of three little boys, so the unicorn trend hasn't hit our household. BUT, I have a bad sweet tooth, so pretty delicious desserts are always up my alley. S'mores I have really fond memories of eating s'mores by the campfire as a kid. My family loved to camp and my sisters and I would try to perfectly toast our . . .
I have really fond memories of drinking limeade as a kid. My mom would buy those frozen concentrates that you mix with water and we'd enjoy limeade all summer. I still love limeade even now. I wanted to make this limeade extra special, and pink, in honor of Valentine's Day. This drink is the perfect addition to your valentines meal, or a fun after school treat for your kids. . . .
Happy New Year! I wanted to start off my new year by taking a break from the sweets and eating lots of veggies. These zucchini noodles, that I like to call zoodles are the perfect solution. You get your noodle fix with non of the carbs! I created my zucchini noodles using the KitchenAid 5 Blake Spiralizer with Peel, Core and Slice attachment for my KitchenAid Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer. This has been the funnest little gadget. You can core and peel apples, create shoestring fries, . . .
I've been really into meals in a bowl lately. It is so visually appealing to see all of the ingredients in my bowl ready to be tossed together. I also love having tasty fresh ingredients for a meal. Some of my favorite flavors are definitely greek flavors. I love the bite and zing of kalamata olives along with cool cucumber and smooth feta. So my obsession with bowl meals and my craving for mediterranean food inspired this healthy and easy meal. I marinated some chicken breasts and . . .
Bowls are the new plates. It's true. Martha Stewart said it, so it's true. Ha ha! Really though! Have you noticed how popular meals served in bowls have become? I love serving food in the Fiesta bistro bowl. They are truly one of my favorite pieces of dinnerware. The depth is perfect, they are chip resistant, and they are beautiful to boot! Today I'm serving up a California roll...in a bowl. Who is a sushi lover out there? If I'm being honest - I'm pretty reserved when it comes . . .
Dinner in 10 minutes?! Yes please! This tasty dish will be on your table before it is even set! I love shrimp, and I love summertime grilling. Add some juicy fresh peaches and you pretty much have heaven on a platter. My love of seafood started when I was a kid. I have really fond memories of camping with my family. My dad would get up early to go fishing and he would catch our dinner. We feasted on rainbow trout grilled over the camp fire during those trips. Since then I haven't been . . .
