BBQ Potatoes

BBQ Potatoes
This is so simple it doesn’t even qualify as a recipe. But I don’t care, sharing it anyway! When I whipped up an indecent amount of Sunshine BBQ Chicken, I needed an easy side dish that wouldn’t overrule the flavor of the chicken and could also be prepped in an oven as well… since I know not every one has a Big Green Egg. Yes, I know, you can stop glaring at me now! I’m letting you live vicariously through me, what else can I do?!? These were so very good. Ingredients: 1 1/2 pound potatoes (equal sized) 1 grated garlic clove or 1/4 to 1/2 tsp garlic powder chicken or vegetable broth tiny cubes butter minced parsley pepper and salt Optional: lime or lemon juice Directions: Get your BGE (or oven) going and keep it steady at 350Fº (175Cº). Use an ovenproof dish. Add the grated garlic or powder to the broth and heat it for a minute to get the flavors going. Place a tiny slice of butter on top of each potato. Maybe I should have called them BBQ Butter Potatoes?

Cheesecake Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs It's hard to believe Easter is just around the corner. This year is going too fast for me to keep up! I swear it felt like yesterday that I was laughing at how quickly the Easter displays went up to replace the Christmas stuff at the beginning of the year, it has managed to creep up on me. My days are getting busier and busier, so I am easily drawn to the simpler, quicker desserts that I can pull together at the last minute. This recipe could not be any easier; there's no baking involved and it takes hardly any time to create these cute Cheesecake-Filled Chocolate Easter Eggs with a 'yolk' made of passionfruit sauce. I took it as a compliment when Lisa (who hates eating eggs) said that these looked so much like real eggs that she was a little creeped out by them. I used my regular chilled cheesecake filling recipe for this, and made up a sauce using passionfruit pulp, apricot jam and a little bit of butter. Alright, I admit I may have taken a few too many photos of these little treats.

Lemon Crinkle Cookies Share on Pinterest If it’s lemon it’s all mine. So that must mean I get this entire batch of cookies to store away for myself. I used to hate pretty much anything lemon when I was younger but good thing tastes change as we get older and much wiser right? We grow up and realize spaghettios, boxed pop-tarts and playdough/superman ice cream aren’t everything we thought them to be (I’m still totally a sucker for bubblegum ice cream and applesauce with cream and cinnamon though, some childhood favorites will just never change). Eat one of these cookies warm out of the oven and your life will basically change forever :). It’s a good thing I can make these anytime or I would have a very hard time not hoarding them all away for myself. On a side note…Cooking Classy just joined Instagram! Share on Pinterest Ah just look at that crinkle. Share on Pinterest Ingredients Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Simple DIY: How to Tint Bottles and Jars Here is one of my favorite, SIMPLE Craft/Decor tips… How to Tint Bottles and Jars with Mod Podge, Water, and Food Coloring. My sweet hubby started his new job today after having a month off. Although his time off was some of the best days EVER for our family, without a doubt he was ready to jump back into the “real” world! Why!?!? Here’s one reason: his sweet wife sent him on errands like this… ‘Honey, would you mind going to this address to pick up a box on a random front porch, a Freecycle pick up?!’ Usually, he rolls with it, but picking up a box of used beer bottles totally weirded him out! You can use any jar for this tutorial! Microwave 3 Tablespoons of water for 30 seconds, then add a lot of gel food color and dissolved FULLY. Mix the mod podge solution with a regular spoon or knife. Start with your lightest color, then deepen your color with progressive bottles so that you can have varied shades of blue bottles. Remove from the oven and cool.

Saltbox House: Gluten Free Lunch Lady Brownies  I love this recipe so much! My sister in law -who worked with the lunch lady in this story- gave me this recipe to me more than 30 years ago and since then, I have made it for my children over and over again.
