We've decided to change things up a bit this year, and instead of cooking out for Memorial Day, I'll be serving these Slow Cooker Beef Barbacoa tacos. The slow cooker makes this barbacoa recipe so easy to make, and the house smells simply wonderful while it's cooking!
I plan to pair it with some cilantro lime rice, homemade fresh tomato salsa, and I'm on the hunt for a really good Chi-Chi's corn cake clone recipe. Anyone have one to share?!?
If you're into more traditional cookout fare, here are some of our family favorites:
A simple coffee marinade adds a mouth-watering, smokey flavor to to these coffee-marinated rib eye steaks that you will never be able to pinpoint as coffee!
This corn casserole recipe is so good you'll want to scrape the dish completely clean to get every last bit of caramelized goodness from the corners!
These grilled caprese tomato kabobs are a delicious, yet healthy, side that pair perfectly with grilled chicken or steak!
Don't let a little rain slow you down. These easy slow cooker ribs are every bit as good as ribs cooked on the grill all day long!
Dessert doesn't get any simpler than these patriotic trifles in jars. Make them up ahead of time and screw lids on them for a dessert to go!
Wash it all down with these easy strawberry daiquiris. I'm not kidding when I say these are the BEST EVER!
I know a number of you were really excited about the Homemade Uncrustables Sandwiches tutorial that I shared last year. A reader recently shared that she found the plastic sealer/cutter that I use at the Dollar Tree for $1, so be on the lookout for them!
I make a big batch of these each week and freeze them for school lunches and to pack in my girls' bags when they have gymnastics practice. They thaw easily on their own by lunch or snack time or you can toss them in the microwave for 15 seconds.
If you're looking for an extra special Mother's Day dessert, look no further! Besides having a beautiful appearance and tasting insanely good, this angel food cake recipe is low in fat, so indulge without guilt.
If you really want to knock their socks off, try topping it with this homemade strawberry sauce. It has just four ingredients and can be prepared in under 10 minutes!
How are you celebrating Mother's Day on Sunday?
If you're looking for a simple and delicious Easter brunch idea, try these mini spinach quiche! They're easy to make, and they're tasty hot or cold, making them a fantastic on-the-go breakfast option as well.
Filled with a spinach and bacon combination, my kids loved these mini quiche so much that I was barely able to snap a picture before they devoured them all!
If you're looking for a great Easter (or anytime) side dish, give these make ahead mashed potatoes a try! Along with my creamed corn casserole, it's one of the most requested side dishes at family gatherings.
My favorite feature of these oven baked mashed potatoes (besides the delicious taste) is that you throw the ingredients together the night before and then refrigerate the potatoes until you're ready to bake them for your meal. Plus the recipe doubles easily for large family gatherings, potlucks, cookouts and more!
