Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe

Soft and chewy best describes this Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookie with just the right amount of sweetness. This is a refrigerator cookie, meaning after you make the cookie dough you divide it in half, roll it into a cylinder in parchment paper and refrigerate it. Take it out of the refrigerator and then slice and bake them as needed. It doesn’t get any easier to have fresh, warm cookies when someone drops in or it is time for a cup of tea. You can also freeze this cookie dough, if you do you don’t even have to thaw it. Just slice it and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 – 18 minutes.

Mexican Taco Pasta Salad Recipe

This is my new pasta salad for this summer! It is such a break from the normal pasta salads I usually make. I started out with an idea and ended up with a wonderful creation. I don’t know about you but I love when that happens. If is full of vegetables, pasta and seasoned like a taco would be.

Smoked Turkey Burritos

Smoked Turkey Burritos Recipe

I smoked a whole turkey the other day on my Kamado grill. For some reason at my house no one ever eats the legs and wings. I usually throw them into the pot when I make stock just so I don’t waste them. I decided today to turn them into a really tasty burrito filling. OMGosh these burritos were amazing. I will be doing this from now on whenever I have turkey legs or wings, smoked or not.

I think I have a trend going in the last week, I have been making peeps out of everything or adorning them on something like the cake here. This is an easy to do quick last minute cake. You could even do this to a store bought cake in a real pinch. Just be sure to grab a can of frosting too!

Kamado Grill Roast Chicken

Kamado Grill Roasted Chicken Recipe

Yesterday I decided to roast a whole chicken in my Kamado grill. I am loving this grill so much. It has never been easier to grill since I bought my Kamado grill a few months ago. It was so easy that after I marinated it, that I just had to put it on the grill and leave it alone (well, kind of)  for 3 hours other than turning it one time. I built a little warmer fire than I had been doing, about 275 degrees. I placed the chicken directly across from the charcoal and that’s it. I had a perfectly cooked, roasted chicken.
