Summer Goodies: Summer Eats

Summer means a lot of simple yet super meals. We love to cook out in the summer, which means a lot of chicken, and a lot of beef. So the recipes can get pretty boring and bland after a while. So I love finding new and different ways to fix chicken and beef.

This fun recipe from Carlsbad Cravings creator Jen is a fabulous summer meal. It is sweet and savory all in one. Brown Sugar Pineapple Chicken is so easy to make and will impress just a bout everyone in the house. It has quickly become a favorite amongst my kiddos. We make it out on the grill, but it can be made on the stove top as well. Thank you to Carlsbad Cravings for creating such a fun and simple summer meal.

So far we have paired this fun dish with grilled potatoes, pasta salad, grilled veggies, homemade french fries, and even rice. It is one of those fun dishes that really does go well with just about everything. We love to cook a lot of it at once because we can use it again during the week, or freeze it and use it later. I have done this and shredded the chicken and put it over rice for an easy meal that travels with us to swim lessons and swim team meets. Check out Carlsbad Cravings now for some awesome eats, and be sure to try this fabulous recipe soon!

Easter is in just a few days, and we want you to be ready. This fun dessert will wow at your Easter gathering. It is sweet, simple, and so much fun it will make everyone smile.

Thank you to Kristyn at LilLuna for this incredibly simple and fun recipe. She knows what its like to be super busy with kids running around and a holiday to get ready for, after all, she has 5 kids. So if she can get this sweet and simple dessert ready by Easter I figure I can too. So I am packing both kids in the car and headed out to gather the last minute things I need to make this dessert happen. If you’re like me you maybe be just a little behind when it comes to having things ready for Sunday. The Easter Basket items are all set, but I have put off shopping for food. Now it is time to get ready.

The great thing about this recipe is it is not complicated at all. You do not need to be a pastry chef, a great baker, or even watch those cooking and baking shows on television. With just a little bit of work and following the instructions you too can end up with a delicious yet adorable dessert that will impress everyone.

Just head on over to LilLuna for the full recipe and tutorial complete with photos. Make sure you set aside enough time to do this the morning of Easter or the night before, it will not keep well in the fridge for more than a day or two and still look good for dessert. Thank you Kristyn for such a fun and simple dessert idea. Now this momma can go finish her shopping and be ready for Easter.
