Tiny Tortellini Stacks-A great Summer Appetizer!

Hi Friend! Are you in need for an appetizer that is easy and cool. Both cool and temp and cool in awesomeness!? These little fellas are your huckleberry!  Let me know if you try them!  We enjoyed them a bunch!  

Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

  Hello Friends! This is my Bacon Ranch Potato Salad. It is so good! I have two potato salad recipes I really enjoy and this is one of them. Its got bacon and onion and ranch! Some could say its crack potato salad after all. HAHA! If you added cheese it definitely would be. This salad goes perfect with BBQs and picnics that are surely coming up for you and me both. I most recently served it with Bacon Cheeseburgers we cooked on our grill. YUM! Do you have a favorite BBQ side dish? What is it? Leave me a comment and let me know! 

Chicken Oriental Salad

  This make a head Chicken Oriental Salad is one of my hubbys most favorite dishes I make! I love being able to make this in the morning and have it already to go for dinner that night. It is nice and cool and crisp! It works so well on those hot summer nights. Its a great one for parties and company too. I think you are going to love this one!

No Bake Eclair Cake

Eclair Cake is a super tasty, very easy, no bake dessert, (also know as an ice box cake) that is on my regular dessert roation. It is perfect for the warmer months when we are looking to not turn the oven and heat up the house, but dont think it cant be eaten in the cooler months. It is great anytime! Be sure to leave yourself enough time for it to meld in the fridge and get those graham crackers nice and soft. Everyone in my family loves Eclair Cake! Give it a try!  


  Years and years ago, my sweet husband and I ate an appetizer at All Of Garden (get it? HAHA!!) It was so good we knew we needed to find a way to have it at home. Much less expensive and easier to get to. This is our best efforts on bruchetta. We now eat it more like a meal over sour dough toast. Sometimes when we are especially fancy we will rub the buttered toast with a little garlic clove but usually we just toast up sour dough and top with this delicious concoction. Right now is the best time of year to get ahold of the most delicious tomatoes straight from the garden but its pretty colors make a great christmas dish too. We've also been know to just eat this out of a bowl like a salad sometimes. Especially if carbs are a concern. Give this one a try! Have you ever tried to make a restaurant recipe at home? Comment and tell me all about it!
