A Collection of 15 Amazing Recipes for Grilled Vegetables

May 1, 2014 No Comments

I am sharing my collection of grilled vegetable recipes as a sponsored post with Foodie.com. All opinions are my own.

Grilling seasoning is among us and that means plenty of backyard gatherings and BBQs. It is the time that we light up the grill at least once or twice a week.  Our backyard becomes a place to play, cook, and eat. My husband likes to grill just about everything. While we can always enjoy a good steak or burger, my favorites are always the grilled vegetables.

I have such a love for grilled vegetables, my husband often makes at least two different ones with each grilling session. I can make a meal just out of the sides. Sometimes I have him make a lot just so I have leftovers for the next day.

In preparation for all the BBQs we are going to have, I have put together a new collection of recipes on Foodie.com. The collection includes 15 amazing recipes for grilled vegetables. Some are will be good as side dishes, appetizers, or even a meal on its own. I’ve added Balsamic Grilled Summer Vegetables With Basil Quinoa SaladGrilled Sweet PotatoesGrilled Corn On The Cob With Jalapeno-Lime Aioli And Parmesan Cheese, and more. They look just as delicious as they sound.

A Collection of 12+ Savory Pork Sunday Dinner Recipes

April 1, 2014 No Comments

I am sharing my collection of pork Sunday dinners as a sponsored post with Foodie.com. All opinions are my own.

Sundays are often the only ‘family day’ we get each week. My husband works long hours and frequently has to go into the office on Saturdays. However, he does whatever he can to make sure he has Sunday off. He wants to make sure our family has the day to spend together. With that said, the last thing I want to do on Sunday is spend hours in the kitchen making dinner.

Instead of making a labor-intense meal, I like to make recipes that are quick and easy. It could be a casserole, slow cooker meal, or a one-skillet dish. The goal is to have a tasty family meal with little effort. With all the varieties of dinners, pork often is a Sunday favorite. Between pork loins, roasts, chops, bacon, and ham, there are endless delicious meals to cook up. I have put together a collection on Foodie.com with 12+ savory pork Sunday dinner recipes that I will continue to grow.

The collection includes a Ham And Cheese GnocchiChinese Five-Spice Pork One PotCrock Pot Apple Bacon Pork Roast, and many more. Click the collection above to view them on Foodie and while you are there, look around to find more great recipes and collections.

Yay! The first day of spring has finally arrived! Now if the temperatures would stop seesawing and stay warm, I would be overjoyed. Maybe if I consistently think about all the things I love about spring, it will finally start warming up. When I think about spring foods, I think about hamburgers and grilling.

I love making desserts and Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to make a dessert with pink colors. I have three boys, so most treats I make or even buy are blue, green, etc. But for Valentine’s Day I am sticking to the colors of love and created a kid-friendly, no-bake dessert.
