are you ready for the weekend? Here it is the middle of August so raise your hand if you’ll be heading to the beach or the shore this weekend? Not me, but I will be hanging poolside, I hate traffic, I get enough of that during the week!
Today’s Friday Foodie Feature is for anyone with a super duper sweet tooth.
I made this cake in small Mason Jars but should have used a little less cake mix because they were too sweet even for Malik.
My son loves Pineapple Upside Down cake so I decided to make the dump cake using the same ingredients. Boxed cake mix, crushed pineapples, maraschino cherries and butter.
After spraying the jars with cooking spray, I layered a few spoonfuls of crushed pineapples on the bottom then topped with a few cherries.
Dump in some cake mix, but not too much which is why I think it was a tad bit too sweet or it could have been the pineapples. Top the cake mix with 3 or 4 pats of butter.
Place jars on baking sheet and put into a pre-heated oven, bake according to time listed on the box or until the tops are crispy brown.
Pour a tall glass of milk and enjoy!
What is your favorite cake recipe?

Hello Friends and Happy Thankful Thursday
If you read my post yesterday you know that we were once again hit with a major snowstorm on Tuesday. It took me over 5 1/2 hours to get home from work and I definitely didn’t want to be in the car anytime soon so I stayed home on Wednesday. At 10:00 a.m. Governor Markell lifted the Level One State of Emergency but it was highly recommended to stay off the roads so that the snowplow operators could do their jobs with minimal interruption from cars.
So on this day, I am thankful for my family, friends and faith…for getting home safely…for having a warm home to live in…and for scrounging around to find these ingredients to make this easy peasy Crock Pot Meal!
- 1 can of Kidney Beans
- 1 can of Black Beans
- 1 Package of Smoked Turkey Sausage
- 1 Package Frozen Peppers and Onions
- 1 Pack of McCormick Fajita Seasoning
- 1/2 Cup of Water
- Rice and Cornbread
Spray Crock Pot with Cooking Spray for easier cleanup. Cut Turkey Sausage into bite size pieces and add seasoning to a 1/2 cup of water.
Put sausage into Crock Pot and pour in Fajita Seasoning mix.
Add frozen veggies and both cans of beans, which can be drained and rinsed to remove some of the sodium.
Stir, cover and cooked on high for 4 hours.
This Snow Day Slow Cooker dish was served with Jasmine Rice and skillet Cornbread.
It was a perfect meal for my men after a few hours of shoveling and an all-day of television watching! I measured the snow on the back deck so I’ll say that we unofficially got 11″ of snow….can’t wait for Spring to arrive!
The Pool is not looking too inviting these days!

We are truly blessed, and I am thankful to have a warm home during this cold winter season. I pray for those with less to be safe and removed from harm’s way.
Okay, it’s your turn – what are you thankful for this week?

What is your favorite grilled food? Mine are kabobs, whether made with chicken, beef, seafood or lamb, I like putting together ingredients for kabobs.
My BFF from New Rochelle was visiting this weekend, so in addition to some “girl talk” and a few cold Peach Bellinis, we dined on crabs, shrimp and chicken kabobs.

Chicken breasts, mushrooms, Mango, grape tomatoes, red onion, sweet peppers, Adobe Seasoning, pepper, Lawry Hawaiian Marinade
Soak wood skewers in cool water
Thoroughly wash mushrooms, rinse tomatoes and peppers
Dice red onion, if cut under stove’s exhaust fan there are no tears
Cut mango, mushrooms, sweet peppers and chicken into bite size pieces
Season with Adobe and pepper
Skewer alternating veggies, mango and chicken. I usually start and end with a grape tomato, they seem to hold everything in place.
Pour on marinade, cover with foil and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
Fire up the grill and place on non-stick foil, depending on your grill’s temp, cook thoroughly until chicken is done.
Remove from grill and let sit for a few minutes before serving.
Crabs and Shrimp purchased from Lewes Fishhouse.
Linking up on Monday with Tough Cookie Mommy – come on over and join the fun!
“Use what you got to make what you want“ was the inspiration for this mid-week meal.
I usually buy Ground Turkey but this week purchased Perdue Ground Chicken, and using ingredients that I already had on hand I jazzed up an ordinary loaf.
Mixed Ground Chicken, an egg, leftover salsa, Taco Seasoning and bread crumbs to form loaf
Top with slices of onion and peppers (cheddar cheese optional)
Placed in loaf pan and baked for 40 minutes @ 350~
Served with Tortilla Strips and mild pepper rings.
Another easy breezy recipe- leftovers can be used to make a Taco Salad when added to lettuce, tomatoes, Avocado and dressing.
Hello Friends, I hope you had a good day.
I didn’t make it into work this morning because of a quick moving, yet severe rainstorm that caused me to turn around and head home. Fortunately the weather improved and it turned into a wonderful sunny afternoon.
I’m still on the Nutrisystem program and eating their meals but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped cooking dinner for my men. Last night’s easy breezy meal contained only 4 ingredients that took 40 minutes to prepare.
They really liked this dish and there was enough leftover for them to have for lunch today. If you try this recipe let me know, and if you put your own little twist on it, tell me what you used.
Boil pasta according to box instructions
Cut Turkey Sausage into bit size pieces
Cover sausage with 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup salad dressing
Cook 10 minutes
Add broccoli, cover and cook add’l 15 mins or until desired texture
Add to drained pasta
Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese if desired
The colors of summer –
Using a recipe from the @usaweekend magazine I made a Mediterranean Chickpea Salad. I didn’t have mozzarella so I used sharp cheddar and instead of cherry tomatoes I cut up a fresh tomato. The parsley was fresh from my garden.
Yesterday I grilled a pineapple using a recipe from the June issue of @allyou magazine. It was a sweet ending to our BBQ meal.
