It’s that time of year! We’ve dusted off the grill and have been cooking out whenever we can so as not to heat up the house.
First is a sauce great for ribs or chicken especially if you have an abundance of fresh strawberries.
We were lucky enough to be gifted with freshly picked strawberries recently and instead of making jam, I decided to make barbecue sauce and marinade instead. The family loved the strawberry flavored barbecue that not only looked it but also smelled gorgeous while it was cooking. I started the sauce by blending the sauce with some raspberry flavored vinegar that was also … Read entire article »
Now a couple of seafood dishes cooked on the grill…
There’s really no recipe for this. After all, nothing could be simpler than to merely slap a piece of meat over a hot coals until it’s cooked. We have been grilling a lot lately, taking advantage of the warmer weather that is not yet too blisteringly hot to be outside over a hot fire. We’ve been having a cooler than usual … Read entire article »
My daughter Asi and I were on a seafood kick last weekend but we were tired of shrimps which is what we normally get. We decided to grill some tilapia and squid for a change.

There is nothing like a wet burrito to get my family into the kitchen quickly. There are days when I need a bullhorn to get everyone unglued from their computers or tv screens and into the kitchen for dinner, then there are days when there is wet burrito. On days when I announce we are having all-meat beef burritos, I don’t have to say it twice. They are immediately at the table.
For my youngest daughter who is not even a big meat eater, she comes to watch the sour cream slide off the burrito.
Of course, she still eats her share of the tender, delicately seasoned beef encased in a large flour tortilla and doused with the paprika and chili flavored gravy that the beef were stewed in. The sliding cream is just an added pleasure

Here’s a couple of sweet dishes which can double up for dessert and breakfast.

I made another facebook inspired recipe last night which was just the perfect thing to usher in the fall season and kick off the all-things-pumpkin extravaganza.
The Not So Desperate Housewife posted this Pumpkin Crisp recipe and it looked so good, I just had to try it. Besides, I already had all the ingredients on hand so it was easy to put together. And was it ever easy! It was a matter of opening cans and packages and dumping them in a dish. It kind of reminded me of my sister-in-law’s cherry dump cake.
So have you pulled out your arsenal of pumpkin flavored recipes yet? Which on did you try first? Leave me a link!
