3 Things That Work in the Kitchen – June 26

Shares 2

1. So much recipe testing!

I’m determined to get the recipe testing portion of the cookbook done by the time school starts. That means doing lots of recipe testing.  This week I tested eleven recipes.  Ten main dishes and one dessert.  Plus I did a Facebook Live video showing how to make Peach BBQ Pork Sandwiches.

We had food coming out of our ears around here!  I gave dinner to our neighbors across the street three nights and shared some of the rest with other friends.

Favorites from this week included Autumn Chicken Skillet and a quinoa salad that’s packable for meals on the go.  My youngest said that is her favorite thing I’ve ever made.  She even ate it for breakfast one day.

2.  VBS snack planning

Our church is doing VBS this week and I’m doing the snacks.  We have a lot of kids come from the neighborhood and they don’t always get enough to eat, so I try to make the snacks fairly healthy and filling.

This year we’ll be having:

Snack mix with yogurt cups

Apples, cheese and crackers

Watermelon, cheese and turkey rolls, pretzels

Popsicles and granola bars

3.  Cherry Cobbler

We went to Ohio to see Jim’s family last Sunday and I took this Cherry Cobbler.  It’s not always easy to find tart cherries, unless you know someone with a tree, but I’ve been able to find them in Meijer freezer section recently.
