Beef Quesadillas

This meal is pretty quick…there is a little chopping, but then you can just use one skillet and have each quesadilla come out every few minutes. I always cook the Fudgelet’s one first (longest to cool) and mine next to help with the test batches. K gets the freshest/best looking depending.

1-2-3 Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bonbons for Kids

Happy almost Halloween! I thought this would be a good recipe to share today for a few reasons. One, it is super kid-friendly. Kids can help you make them (although I did not have the Fudgelet help this time). Kids will also like eating them. Also, this is a super easy recipe to make. Perfect for a Halloween party to share with others. You could make these more Halloween-like by turning them into some cute creatures or using Halloween colors to dip them in. I’m sure you can be more creative! I will mention that I started getting a bit lazy and messy so some of them look more marbled than they need to…but I also feel like it doesn’t matter.

Grilled Old Bay Shrimp

I know I might be pushing it with grilling posts in October, but I’m trying to share all of these yummy meals before it is winter. I actually might be done grilling for the simple fact that my gas tank is just about empty and it seems a little late in the season to fill it. I’m also unsure how much grilling I will do when next year rolls around. Will the baby let me grill? Will it make things easier? No idea at this point. Oh well, I will at least save this recipe to make again when I am back to grilling. And hopefully you will want to do the same!

Easiest Fudge Popsicles

Seriously, this is one of the easiest recipes I have found for eating chocolate in a frozen stick form. And, it was actually full of chocolate flavor. Probably because it is mostly melted chocolate.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Kebabs and Skewers

This is a work in progress. I have been trying different kebab recipes and not had much luck. I did meatballs (wouldn’t stay on the skewers), chicken thighs that I tried not cutting into pieces, shrimp, and then chicken breasts.

Ramen Salad

Oh my goodness. I did it. I just posted with complaints of not finding a good party salad, and then bam, I made this one and loved it. I have even been enjoying the leftovers! Not only is it super easy to make (one of the easiest side dishes ever), but it was a hit with my friends, too. I can’t say it is toddler-friendly, but I wasn’t intending for that when I picked it. A friend where I used to teach would make a ramen salad that she would share with us and it was so good! I didn’t think to compare until just now, but when I looked, hers is almost identical to the ingredients except no slaw, it used edamame and sunflower seeds, and you could add the seasoning packets, but she never did.
