Grill the weekend away…

What are your plans this weekend?  Are you taking a little time away?  Hanging out with friends and family?  Are you grilling?  In my house we will be grilling for sure…and who knows what else. Whats on the grill? Are you doing burgers (like these sliders)?   How about those …

The more spicy… the more better

Are you a sauce person?  I am a HUGE sauce person.    I like sauces on everything from pasta to  dessert, but with fries is a must. Sauce, why? Ok, I understand that not everyone is a fan of sauce with their fries, but I urge you to just try it. …

Fries without any frying…

yep…you read that right.  I give you fries all done with any frying, even better they are primarily done on the grill. Fries any way, anytime… I love potatoes any way you give them to me, but I really, really love fries.  I mean is there anything better then a hot …

simple, grilled salmon that is so good

Simple is sometimes so, so good.  You know like an apple on a hot day, or just a simple scoop of vanilla ice cream…sometimes simple really is best. Salmon can be simple? Sure it can be, but it is a special simple.  This salmon is seasoned with a favorite little …

potatoes without the oven…YES I promise

I just can’t stand turning on the oven in the summer.  It is just too hot here in Texas.  I mean the heat index today was like 110 degrees or something crazy like that.  Thank you Jesus that I work inside!! Even though it is summer… Even though it is …

Sweet & Spicy = AMAZNG BBQ Sauce

I have a secret dream.  One that I have never told anyone…EVER!  I dream of winning a BBQ sauce competition. Really? Yes, for reals.  I have a recurring dream (or maybe its a nightmare) that I win a BBQ sauce competition at the Houston Rodeo.  After having that dream for …

couscous like never before

A coucous salad is a must have for me in the summer.  Anytime I go to a restaurant that has a couscous side dish option it is always at the top of my list, only behind mac-n-cheese. Why Couscous? First, couscous is little pasta balls.  They have a delicious texture …
