You were away for days-hey MoM I want some attention!
Love, Tyler xo
I hope you have a great Monday!
On weekends at home and at our poolside, one of the most requested lunches are the Big Party Sub made sandwiches. I usually make two 20 ounce loaves filled with Roast Beef (bottom layer) Slice American white cheese/cut), Tavern Ham, sliced tomatoes, more sliced cheese, turkey, bibb lettuce and a mayo/mustard on the top of the loaves of bread. I keep them cold 30 minutes before slicing (I cut in 3″ pieces).
You’ll be surprised how quick these disappear!
Pretty and worth the effort to make and especially good to eat!

It has been awhile since I have seen you! Hoping your Sunday is a great day! Love Tyler xo
These are such a fun and easy meal to put together. I use 2 whole Chicken breasts either baked or grilled, cooled then shredded. 1/2 red bell pepper, 1/2 green pepper, one white onion sliced, one minced clove of garlic, dash of chili powder, dash of salt and black pepper.
Saute the peppers and onions with minced garlic, chili powder, S & P, until softened. Add shredded chicken and stir gently cook 6 minutes. You can warm the flour tortillas in the microwave, if desired.
Fill the flour tortillas full and roll closed. A side of rice and beans goes well with these fajitas.
Not The Gourmet Next Door.
The produce Market on Wednesday had corn on the cob available and on sale. We love Mexican grilled corn! I melt mexican cheese and a bit of sour cream together, use melted butter when grilling corn, add paprika, S & P, to taste, chopped cilantro and it is a party in your mouth.
Super flavorful and so easy!
Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Its all in the seasoning of these big thick Rib Eye Steaks. The Meat Market had them on sale this week! I always use Montreal Grill Seasoning. I use a lot of it on both sides of room temperature rib eyes. Grill to your liking.
So tender and juicy-love a good tender steak!! How about you?
I make potato wedges in the oven and a green salad or fruit salad to accompany these steaks!
Go ahead and treat yourself you deserve it!
Check out these perfect blueberries I picked up at the open air produce market! Sweet and delicious! I ate a bowl already and plan on making lemon~blueberry quick bread next!
Oh my yum!
Hope you have a great Saturday!

Needing a quick supper? These cubed steaks are the answer! I lightly dust them with cornmeal and melted butter and bake @ 350 F for 18 minutes. For the Sauce: scant 1/4 cup Dijon mustard, 3 tablespoons pure honey, chopped fresh parsley. Super easy and ah so yummy!
We love these served with garlic mashed potatoes and mixed green vegetable.
In a bowl add 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles, 1/2 freshly squeezed lemon juice, handful cooked chopped spinach, black pepper to taste, stir and refrigerate. I use Sirloin Ground Beef and round out 1/2 pound burgers, grill them, toast a roll/bun, add Feta mixture to the bottom roll, add grilled burger, more Feta and diced tomatoes.
A Man’s sandwich!!!
I make mini sliders too!
Delicious and easy to put together lunch salad. Using cherry tomatoes (cut in half) handful of button mushrooms (sliced), fresh spinach, sliced red onion, leftover flank steak (sliced) and a light balsamic dressing!
So simple and filling!
Using leftover grilled chicken I whipped up these easy, simple chicken lettuce wraps. They were gone in no time! I used cheese, chicken (shredded), diced tomatoes, a light dressing-DONE!
New Potatoes, Corn on the Cob and tons of Shrimp made its way to the Mountains! Woo-Hoo. Who says you can’t have Seafood while relaxing among the trees? We used the large campfire pit and a huge pot hanging over the roaring fire and had a blast last night cooking this!
I recommend it, you’ll be happy you did!
We did roast marshmallows too!
Hope your Saturday is a great one!
I seasoned these thick (boneless) Chicken Breasts with cumin, garlic salt, onion powder and grilled them. So easy and delicious. I made a fresh batch of homemade Potato Salad and cut two small seedless watermelons.
Outside dining made for a fun supper!
I also made a few dipping sauces, everyone was happy and full!
A lot of after the Birthday Party (Friday night), Saturday (Anniversary Party), Sunday (Easter) I had so much clean-up I decided a quick slow cooker meal would do the trick! Just sear the country ribs, place them into the slow cooker, add honey BBQ sauce, set on medium for 4-6 hours. We love jasmine rice (with sliced scallions) add a green vegetable and dinner was served last night!
Delicious and easy!
PS No I am not yet caught up I am getting there though-LOL.
Don’t waste those Easter hard-boiled eggs, make these cheddar deviled eggs with the leftovers! I use a bit of mayo and mustard with the yolks, refill cavity of half eggs, add shredded cheddar and devour!
East, fun and delicious appetizer!
Quick and easy supper tonight. 16 ounces Fresh Smoked Sausage, one teaspoon minced garlic, white pepper. 16 ounces fresh spinach, one fresh lemon, s & p to taste. I make the smoked sausage in the oven @ 400 F for 20 minutes. Boil spinach for 5 minutes, drain well add lemon juice, s & p.
Serve with a side of brown rice.
Easy and delicious!
I will be very busy this week, guests arriving to visit, a birthday party, anniversary party, Easter meal preparations.
I wish you all a great week!
See YOU soon!
As many of you know I love smoothies in so many varieties. I tried this Kiwi~Lemon Yogurt and went yo I love this combo! I used two peeled and cubed kiwi fruit, handful of ice cubes, 1/4 cup Greek Lemon~Yogurt (Oikos brand), whizzed it up in the blender!
Oh my yummy!
This smoothie really was delicious and easy to make. Cube seedless watermelon and add into a blender, add ice cubes, 1/2 banana, run until thoroughly combined!
Standing on the shore line
Peace at my knees
I look up and out to the ocean
and what do I see
The light at the end of a perfect day…
Find your peaceful spot and enjoy as you reflect on your day.
The produce market had these gems available and were they ever sweet and delicious. I bought four of them and refrigerated (in the spare one) cut into one last night. Oh my so yummy!
They are the seedless variety, one of our favorites. In Florida we prefer the round smaller ones to the large, heavy oblong ones. They are just so sweet!
If you love watermelon, try these!
Thin crust pizza baked in no time and is so easy and delicious. I do not use any meat on this but you certainly can add any you enjoy. Simply roll out (store bought) pizza dough thinly, add tomato sauce, sliced fresh tomatoes, garlic salt, onion powder, mozzarella cheese and grated parmesan.
I use a pizza stone and bake @375 F 12-14 minutes,
Cut and serve.
I freeze Bing Cherries when they are in season and this is a fun dessert to put together. Using two cups pitted, sliced in half fresh cherries, add 2 tablespoons corn syrup and gently stir, refrigerate. For the Lemon cream topping I use 2 cups heavy cream, dash of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 whole lemons (juice , zest of one) and whip until combined-refrigerate 30 minutes.
To assemble using a glass square dish add cold cut cherries, smooth out the top, add lemon cream on top, zest.
Love this easy dessert!
These are great for a party appetizer or even for lunch! I use Flour Tortillas and coat the inside with Ranch Dressing, add sliced ham and provolone cheese, roll up and place in plastic wrap, refrigerate. When ready to serve, slice, plate and dig in.
They are delicious and super easy to make.

April showers bring May flowers!
Happy April Everyone!
When I went to the Meat Market they had these lovely Roast Beef ready to season and Roast. I love to make several meals from one Roast. A favorite are hot Roast Beef Sandwiches Au Jus on a crusty hard roll. I add sauteed onions and bell peppers and gooey cheese. They are so delicious.
Cold sandwiches are scrumptious and sometimes I slice and freeze the rest for another meal.
Although, beef prices are up, in this case making several meals from one Roast proved to be economical!
Yay for the Meat Market!!!
Hoping you have a great Day!
A week is not complete without some type of Italian dish. Today is a simple easy baked Chicken (breasts) Parmigiana and garlic toast with a side of pasta. A family favorite and so easy to prepare. In one hour start to finish lunch was ready!
A happy gang for sure!
Happy Sunday All!
Having a restful day!
Have a great Sunday, too!
Love, Tyler xo
Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries with simple syrup and lemon-lime whipped cream! So good! Great for breakfast, lunch snack or dessert.
I love fruit and this one is a favorite.
When all else fails just sing along!!!
Easy to bake Lemon Chicken! Makes a great fast weeknight meal. Season chicken pieces with s & p, garlic and onion powder place in a large baking dish, add 1 cup chicken stock, two whole lemons (juiced), cover and bake @ 375 F for 45 minutes.
We love fresh green beans sauteed in lemon juice as a side dish.
The gang wanted 1/4 pound cheeseburgers with lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, on an onion roll toasted! Seasoned potato wedges baked and fruit! They were starving until we got home!
I lit the grill, rounded out the Burgers, and voila early supper and everyone is happy.
Its a beautiful day and we will be swimming shortly.
Hoping everyone had a great day!
Using your crock pot or slow cooker, first sear the 6 pound Chuck Roast on both sides add into the crock pot. Slice one onion, add one bay leaf, 1-1/2 cups beef broth, dash of salt and black pepper, two garlic cloves. Cover and cook on low 4-5 hours.
Three Roma tomatoes cut into pieces add into a mixing bowl, one tablespoon garlic salt, one teaspoon onion powder, one teaspoon parsley, balsamic vinegar and pure Olive Oil, stir well and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Super tender meat with a tomato salsa and is it ever delicious!
I brought along (to the Georgia Mountains) some thick boneless pork loin chops to grill for lunch! I used a seasoning of fresh rosemary, garlic salt (super simple).
Fresh grilled asparagus and grape tomatoes!
Easter is not that far off and I love making different treats for the family! I made these several years ago and wanted to share them with you. I usually use any cake mix, chocolate or white or even yellow cake mix. Follow directions for 36 cupcakes using liners.
You’ll need a bag of small jelly beans, coconut flakes colored with green gel (for the grass). I just make a vanilla buttercream frosting.
The handles are thin red licorice, and the cupcakes are topped with jelly beans.
Its just one of several treats I make for Easter!
Hope you enjoy!
Get ready to plant some flowers, spring is around the corner!

This casserole dish is so delicious and easy to put together. Cook (8 ounces) Rotini pasta until al dente, rinse, set aside. I use 6 ounces fresh thin asparagus blanched for 3 minutes in salted water, cut into pieces. 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, one cup of Whole Milk, one cup cooked cubed chicken.
In a 9″ x 13″ non stick baking dish add Rotini pasta, asparagus pieces, stir gently, add milk and cheese, stir again, add chicken cubes and fold into mixture, cover with foil and bake @375 F for 12-14 minutes.
We love a side of fruit with this dish, serve with a green salad if desired.
Happy Tuesday friends. Its a day of playing for me! MoM was telling me that the N.E. US is having a whopper of a snow storm. Stay safe and warm!
I am thinking of you.
Love, Tyler xo
We love Hot Italian Sausage and these sandwiches are a huge hit in my household. Thoroughly brown the Hot Italian Sausage links once cooked cut into 2″ pieces. In a saute pan add two tablespoons olive oil, brown one bell pepper (sliced) and one white onion (sliced) until tender, add tomato sauce and return sausage pieces. Cook 6-8 minutes.
I like to add butter on top of the Italian bread and toast lightly, cut loaves in thirds. Cut each third in half and add hot Italian sausage and peppers!
Some days walking the beach we find all sort of seashells. This is my latest find! I gather them up in a pail, bring them home, rinse them off with diluted bleach water, then they dry and are used in craft projects.
At the northern most end of this barrier island (next to the jetty) is where I find them.
In all of our very busy lives one needs a hobby or two!
What’s your hobbies?
As many of you know I love salads! I decided to make a simple wedge salad and it just hit the spot. So simple and filling. I used regular Iceberg Lettuce (use any you love or have on hand). I cut up one Roma tomato, 3 slices crispy bacon (cut), and a homemade ranch dressing.
These are such a favorite appetizer in our household. I make them in the slow cooker with Honey BBQ sauce. It will take a few minutes to wrap each Lil Smokie sausage with a half slice of bacon (worth every minute!).
Place them all inside slow cooker add BBQ sauce, cover and cook on low 2-3 hours.
May have some rain coming (we need some!). I get to be even more lazy-Ha-Ha-Ha!!! Love, Tyler xo
What a great life, just hanging out!
Wonderful Salmon was on sale at our Seafood Market and I could not resist it! I season each Fillet with a lemon pepper seasoning, fresh lemon juice and broil 4-5 minutes (skin side down). For the easy delicious sauce I use Greek Yogurt, lemon juice. black pepper, stir well. Spread on top, plate and devour!
Coat the cooked Salmon with the sauce and you will love the simple flavors. We love this with a green mixed salad and a vinaigrette dressing.
So light and flavorful! Yum.
Well Tyler boy had a busy day today, playing and he is exhausted! Hoping each of you has a peaceful night!
Love, Tyler xo
Its a great Monday morning- I have been fed, I groomed myself then MoM brushed me and talked too me. Now, I think I will play with my toys and then nap away the afternoon!
Hope your Monday is wonderful.
Love Tyler, xo
Our weather has been so great I have been spending a lot of time outside in my garden and citrus. The gang were all hungry for tomato sauce Meat Loaf. I got out the two slow cookers and went to work. Fast and super easy to put together. Did I mention yummy too???
I used 4 pounds of sirloin ground beef ( making two loaves), breadcrumbs that are Italian seasoned, 4 eggs, one onion diced finely, garlic and onion powders and then formed two meat loaves. Placed them into the slow cookers with 2 cups (homemade) marinara sauce in each and let them cook on low 2-3 hours.
I served them with creamed mashed potatoes, green beans and honey baby carrots. Sprinkle some grated cheese on the top before slicing.
Everyone was smiles-especially me, an easy day in the kitchen!
Happy Sunday Everyone!
Using any dough (fresh or frozen) roll out dough on a clean work surface, create a rim around the diameter, add scrambled eggs, ham cubes, cheese, diced tomatoes, garlic and onion powders. Fresh parsley.
Bake on a pizza stone or baking sheet pan @ 425 F for 15-18 minutes.
Scrumptious for breakfast or brunch on a weekend!

Getting ready for the annual Corn Beef and Cabbage Day! Its a favorite (even though there is no Irish in our bones?-LOL). Lots of carrots, onions, potatoes add to the flavors!
Do you make this dish? Do you like Corn beef and cabbage? You can slow cook it, roast, stove-top in a large pot.
Give it a try you may love it too!
Spring is just around the corner for many of you! The flowers will bloom, birds will sing, pollen in the air promoting sneezing, time to mow the lawn, get out the patio furniture and feel the warmth of the Sun.
Wishing each of you a wonderful March, 2017!
MoM has been talking too me, you see I made a big MESS with my toys! Yes, I did. They are all over the spare room. I emptied my bucket of toys everywhere-Ha-Ha-Ha!
Hope you all have a great Tuesday!
Love, Tyler xo
This is a favorite of mine. Using frozen (or fresh raspberries) 1/3 cup, blend until smooth, drain through a mesh sieve, return to blender, add 1/2 cup pure orange juice, ice cubes and run blender on high several minutes.
Fabulous side dish any weeknight! One fresh head of broccoli (I use only the florets and freeze the stems). 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, one cup vegetable broth, one teaspoon garlic salt, pepper, to taste, one cup panko (or seasoned bread crumbs). Several tablespoons butter.
Blanch broccoli florets 3-4 minutes in boiling salted water. Drain, add into a baking dish, add vegetable broth, garlic, pepper, stir gently. In a bowl add shredded cheese and panko (or bread crumbs) mix well with clean hands, cover top of pre-cooked broccoli florets with mixture, add butter and bake @ 375 F 10-12 minutes.
So good Y’All. Enjoy!
Hoping you have a terrific Wednesday!
Love, Tyler xo
I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee meat and salad together! So delicious and healthy. I had leftover Baked Pork Loin and put this wonderful salad together in a snap! I use 1 cup fresh baby spinach, 1/2 cut cooked green beans, one mango cut into cubes, 1/2 red onion sliced, a few white button mushrooms sliced, almond sliver halves for garnish with a light vinaigrette dressing.
Its is so much fun creating new salads!
Hope you enjoy!

We love enchiladas. So easy to prepare! One pound of ground beef, one can (10.5 oz.) Ro*tel diced tomatoes and chiles, 1 tablespoon taco mix, 1/2 diced onion, few dashes of hot sauce. Brown onions, ground beef until cooked through. Drain grease, add remaining ingredients, stir, cook 8 minutes. I use regular large flour tortillas filling each one and rolling them closed, seam side down in a non stick baking dish. Add enchilada sauce (or can use taco sauce) add lots of Mexican blended cheese and bake 15 minutes @ 375 F.
Garnish with more shredded cheese.
A wonderful supper for a Weekend! I buy a 5-6 pound Beef Brisket from my Butcher/Meat Market, add seasonings, and bake @325 F for 4 hours in beef broth, covered. I use two white onions sliced, 2 tablespoons butter, olive oil and caramelize the onions for 30 minutes on the stove-top. I use the cooking juices to make a gravy by adding corn starch and bring to a boil.
We love sugar snap peas and mashed creamed potatoes and gravy, as side dishes.
The meat is so tender and flavorful.
Enjoy-we sure do!
When I stopped by our local open air produce market on Wednesday, I found beautiful tomatoes and ripe avocado! Yes, a quick, delicious lunch. Add your favorite seasonings, lemon juice, s & p, some herbs, chill the salad 20 minutes and voila-enjoy!
Salads are a large part of my daily diet, I love different combinations and this one is a favorite! 8 ounces Thin Asparagus, 4 radishes, one shallot, bunch of fresh tarragon finely chopped, 1/2 fresh lemon, s & p to taste, one tablespoon white vinegar, 2 tablespoons canola oil.
Blanch the asparagus spears in salted boiling water for 3 minutes, drain and allow to cool down then cut into thirds (each spear) add to a mixing bowl, add all remaining ingredients, toss gently, cover with plastic wrap and chill 30 minutes.
Healthy, nutritious and just yummy!!!
4 Center Cut Pork Chops, 2 cups cooked yellow rice with cumin and scallions, baby honey carrots. Outstanding supper that is a definite favorite here.
In a small bowl add 1 tablespoon cumin, black pepper, salt, onion and garlic powder and coat the Pork Chops on both sides, add to a baking (rimmed) sheet pan and bake @ 375 F for 45 minutes (turning at the halfway point)-cover with aluminum foil.
Cook yellow rice or rice of your choice, add one teaspoon cumin, 2 stalks scallions diced, gently stir. Serve with baked chops!
One 16 ounce bag frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, one cup Milk, one teaspoon each salt and black pepper, dash of garlic powder and onion powder.
In a large mixing bowl add frozen hash browns, s & p, onion and garlic powder, stir and transfer into a non stick baking dish. Add milk and gently stir, smooth out the top of casserole and add shredded cheese across the top, cover with aluminum foil and bake @ 375 F for 30 minutes.
Makes a great side dish!

Enjoy this lovely watercolor by Jodi-for all of you in the cold climate-think Spring! PS I love Tulips!!! Thanks Jodi!
And then I’d be called to hold or reach or retrieve,
while the soup was simmering and the laundry was tumbling.
And tulips bloomed on my paper and in my heart,
while we spent another blissfully ordinary Sunday in home sweet home.
Cheers & Hugs,
