Honey Vegetable Foil Packet

During the summer we grill out a lot and I mean A LOT; I think at least four meals a week are cooked on the grill. Vegetables cooked on the grill are absolutely amazing and stay so crisp if you time them right. We used to always just season them which is really good just itself; then Josh had the brilliant idea to add honey to the mix and oh my goodness we have never gone back. Of course you can also cook these in the oven if you don’t have a grill.

Meatballs in Mashed Potato Cups

Many many years ago when my Great Grandma passed away my Aunt took it upon herself to go through her recipes and compile a cookbook to give to everyone in the family. There are many different recipes that I have tried or that I remembered from my childhood in that book but this one is my second favorite. My favorite is one my family lovingly called dodgers which is just native american fry bread, that was my addiction growing up.The first time I made this though I fell in love because of how simple and delicious it is. I of course have changed some things over the years like substituting real milk for reconstituted milk powder, but I also don’t know anyone anymore who really keeps this in their house. This is a big hit with kids and husbands too, my family often begs for it.

Baked French Fries

I love trying new things, sometimes it gets me into trouble though. That’s what happened when I made these french fries, HUGE trouble. I was simply just in the mood for french fries and we didn’t have any in the house; we always have potatoes though. My husband took one bite and informed me that I was NEVER allowed to make store bought french fries again. I tend to create more work for myself all the time by making things that my family falls in love with. I hope you and your family fall in love just as much.

This chicken cheddar surprise is the perfect thing and no measuring required so it can be made for as many people as you want. They also come wrapped in a pretty tin foil package for easy clean up.
