For some reason this weekend has Hamburgers written all over it! ( not really...my calendar has other things on it already..but if it didn't...!)
Are you one who sticks to just the usual burger or a favorite when you go out for them? Don't be shy...I do the same thing. Think about having something new and different...but don't. Oh well. These however just might change our ways!
First up from Skinnytaste.com The Naked Turkey Brushetta Burger. Big name...looking awesome burger!
Crazy good huh? Like burger goodness and healthy too! I am in!
Up next...enter the Mushroom. Actually the Portobello Grilled burger, again from Skinnytaste.com ( because one, she rocks and her food does too and two, I feel less guilty this way...and can eat french fries!)
She did say that next time she made them, she would add in bacon...because...well, its Bacon people!
And this one...isn't "traditional", but again we are trying new things right?? Right! So try this one from...say it with me...Skinnytaste.com. Its her Skinny Buffalo Quesadilla.
So try these out this weekend. Or at least drool over the pictures of these great different burgers...while you eat your old stand by!!!
Its going to be hot hot hot this weekend! Yay ( on one hand!) and not so yay...in the kitchen! So I found some salads to make this weekend instead that will feed you and not heat up the house!!
On the site TheGirlWhoAteEverything.com ( have you checked it out yet?? ) I found this salad.. Portillos Chopped Salad. Looks good huh!!
Told you it looked good!!
How about this Chicken Sandwich? Also found on TheGirlWhoAteEverything.com ( again...check it out!)
I know, its simple...but good! And won't need to have the oven on to make it!! And we need something sweet too right? How about this Strawberry Pretzel Salad...yes...from TheGirlWhoAteEverything.com! Hope you try some of these and stay cool this weekend!! ~Tammy
Sometimes I actually get the urge to cook after looking online at the pictures and recipes that I can find. They make it seem so easy...and yummy. And..well, there is a reason why you don't see the pictures of the foods that I cook on here!! I am still trying to convince my kids that overly browned food is still ok to eat!! So...check out some of the fun stuff I found on the site I wash you dry.com! Like these orange pull-a-parts! Have weekend written all over them!!
Then...this caught my eye. I am thinking its going to be wonderful...rich and creamy...just not dwell too much on it being an avocado. Its Chicken and avocado pasta!! From Iwashyoudry.com!!
Ok, so the picture is sideways....but you get the idea!! And then I am a sucker for ooey-gooey desserts! So...yeah, this one is right there! Its the Hot Chocolate Brownie from Iwashyoudry.com!! Its topped with melty marshmellow too!! So do some cooking or baking this weekend! And have a good one too!!! ~Tammy
Wait...I thought Dads day was all about letting Dad do the cookin?? Doesn't he become the Master of the Grill? Then why should we be doing any cooking??? Oh thats right, because the grill cooking is usually ALL that Dad does. So if anybody wants anything non-meat related at the meal...well, then....we cook! Since Dad will be burning...um, Cooking something on the grill...I'll help you out with the rest of the stuff! How about this Buffalo Chicken Dip?? I found it on the site thegirlwhoateeverything.com. That should get you started!!! THen on to this one..... Twice Baked Potatos! Really...you can't go wrong with these. ( heck, I would even skip the meat and just go for these!!) Again, from the amazing Thegirlwhoateeverything.com!! Yum Yum Yum!!!
And Dad deserves something sweet too right? Ok then...how about this?? Peanut Butter Brownie Cups?? An evil idea from thegirlwhoateeverything.com
Hope you have a great Fathers Day Weekend!!
No, that doesn't mean that someone named June is going to cook for us ( altho how great would that be??) I was just thinking..well, honestly, that I needed a title for this group of recipes to try out!
I will admit that I did make these during the week! The Girls LOVED them! ( the hubby didn't realize that they were pizza...said they looked like cinnamon rolls and thought I forgot his dinner!)
They were good!
And since I am on a pizza kick, this one too caught my eye! Its from Recipegirl.com and its for BBQ Chicken pizza with BACON. Hello!
I mean we all love BBQ Chicken pizza...then add in Bacon. You pretty much can not miss with this bad boy! And to top off all the pizza...well, beer! hahaha
But I had to check this out when I saw the title alone...I mean I don't know what else she could have added in to her
I think I gained a pound just looking at the picture...but it was totally worth it!
Hope you get in some great cooking this weekend too!~Tammy
This is going to be a good weekend to do some cookin! Ok, maybe its just me, but for some reason it just feels like a cooking - and eating - kind of weekend.
I love snacks...appetizers...I could just make a whole meal of them! So of course this Bloomin Onion bread on The girl who ate everything.com site caught my eye!!
That with some wine or iced tea...I am set!!!
Then, I found this Baked Spasanga on Thegirlwhoateeverything.com. Tell me this doesn't look good!! Yum!
I am gonna have to try it soon!
And then I saw this....same site, The girl who ate everything.com....Peanut butter "cheese" ball!!
Seriously?? Thats just fun!!! Have some fun cooking this weekend! ~Tammy
A long weekend gives you more time to hit the kitchen!!
A fun salad is great anytime! This weekend even...especially when it comes from Yammiesnosherie.com! Check out this Candied Pecan Berry Salad!
See?? Yum! And probably even healthy! And what about some pasta?? The weather being a bit cooler this weekend...its perfect! And so is the Stuffed Shells dish from Classycooking.com!
As I get a bit older ( ugh!) my sweet tooth is starting to fade....but when it does come around, its wanting something a step up from the ordinary.
I figure that's gotta happen to you too, right?
So this week, I am just going to bring you a few sweet treat ideas that you can tackle!!
First up, these made me wish I could eat the computer screen! Salted brown butter cookie dough truffles. ( I bet it took me longer to type out the name then they would last around me! ) This comes courtesy of CookingClassy.com
See?? Amazing huh???
Have Nutella in the cupboard? Check out this Nutella Dip, also from Cookingclassy.com!
Sure, dip in strawberrys, graham crackers, pound cake, bananas, a spoon to just eat!!!
And for those who don't enjoy chocolate (????), here is a light and fluffy Banana Cake with whipped frosting. ( Ok,that does sound good...even better with chocolate syrup in the side!!!) And yep...raided CookingClassy.com again for this! ( but you can see why!)
Ok, I am going to go and wipe the drool from my face and perhaps even attempt one of these evil creations this weekend too!!
Hopefully your Moms Day will go better then mine!! Already my 9 year old has told me to " make this exact breakfast for her on Mothers Day...she will be soooo Happy!" Yeah, guess she hasn't quite got the idea yet!!
But should I in fact end up in the kitchen this weekend, perhaps these will be a few things I cook up. ( or, should the hubby wisely read this....HE could cook up! )
With some fresh fruit and coffee....Yum!!
Lunch...something light and can be eaten outside on the patio!! How about this Italian Antipasta Salad?? Again, from Skinnytaste.com!
That and a glass of wine on the Patio...perfect Moms Day!!
And then this looked great! Linguini with Scallops and Peas! Again....say it with me...Skinnytaste.com!
Looks good huh? Well, if you are lucky enough to have someone cook these for you...Enjoy!! And have a wonderful Mothers Day!!!
