Grilled Asparagus

by Princess Lacey on April 16, 2014| 73 Pageviews

asparagas

One of my favorite veggies is asparagus. I’ve tried preparing it many different ways but this is my favorite….and it’s so easy!

First prepare the asparagus by rinsing it off and cutting off the base. I normally cut about an inch off.  If you take a piece and bend it, where it snaps is a good place to cut it.

Place the asparagus on a sheet or 2 of foil. Take a lemon and cut it in half. Take once half and squeeze the juice over the asparagus. Take the other half and slice it and place it on the asparagus.

Spread 1 tablespoon of minced garlic on the asparagus. Add about 1 tablespoon of butter cut into pieces on top of that and sprinkle with salt and pepper. That’s it!

Place on the grill for about 15-20 minutes. You want the asparagus to be tender but still have a little crisp to it!

Enjoy!

“Worm” For Dinner! Easy Recipe, Amazing Taste!

by Princess Lacey on April 2, 2014| 557 Pageviews

dinner

Guest Post from Princess Allie!

Dinner! Easy as 1,2,3! It doesn’t matter if you have yourself or an entire herd of guests to feed! This meal is sure to please! My mom called this “worm” because it doesn’t quite fit horizontal on the cookie sheet so you have to twist it in just a tad making it a “worm” shape! Family, friends, and neighbors would all request this delight! After having my own flock of children, I find this recipe my go-to recipe for a meal that all will enjoy!

You will need your favorite bread recipe, any loaf bread or dinner roll recipe will do!

Aside from the ingredients you will use for your bread recipe, you will also need:

  • 1 lb breakfast sausage
  • 2-4 cups mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • garlic salt (optional)
  • marinera sauce or ranch for dipping (optional)

PreHeat Oven 350* or whatever your bread recipe calls for.

Prepare your bread recipe just as the instructions state all the way through the rising process.

While the dough is rising, you will need to shred 2-4 cups of shredded cheese. (More if you prefer a ton of cheese).

Use the remaining time to cook your sausage on the stove top breaking apart into small pieces the same way you would for a pizza topping! Drain, then set aside.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Once your dough has risen, you will simply divide it in half and roll one half out on the counter the same way you would make a pizza crust! I like to lightly dust my counter and rolling pin with flour, although many enjoy using a spritz or two of olive oil. There is no wrong way!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Once your dough is rolled out, sprinkle the dough with garlic powder or garlic salt (optional), half of the cheese, as well as half of the sausage!

worm 1

Start on one side and loosely roll our dough until it is completely rolled up! you will then pinch in the sides to ensure the cheese stays inside once it is melted!

Sprinkle a little garlic salt or garlic powder on top if you wish.

Place on greased or corn starch sprinkled cookie sheet.

worm 2

Repeat this process with the remaining dough and ingredients.

Bake 30 minutes, then place aluminum foil loosely over the rolls. Cook an additional 10-15 min. or until golden brown.

worm 3

Eat. Enjoy. Pair with a great pot of stew if you wish. We prefer no dipping sauce because it is simple and delightful on it’s own, but you can pair with ranch or marinara if you’d like.

The my first experience with Monkey Bread is a funny story. I was a young teenager, I was staying at a friend’s home with a group for a Church function. It had been a busy day and after everyone went to bed a group of us sneaked down stairs to grab a midnight snack. While browsing around we found a pan filled with some strange dough. I remember telling me friend, “oh, I hope that’s not breakfast!” Of course it was….but it was delicious! I had never had it before and although at first it didn’t look appealing it certainly was.

Now this is a family favorite. So easy to make! I hope you enjoy!

Everything Is Better With Lobster!

by Princess Lacey on March 27, 2014| 781 Pageviews

Lobster, everything is better with lobster

I’ve only had lobster a few times, so when I got the opportunity to get 4 Live Lobsters shipped to my door I was so excited…and a little nervous! I didn’t know for sure what to expect but I was up for a challenge!

After the Lobsters arrived my whole family was excited. My little girls were curious but then quickly decided they wanted nothing to do with them, but I caught them peeking in on them occasionally. lobster, holding

I planned my menu and invited some friends over for dinner. My menu was grilled asparagus, mashed potatoes and a salad. Dinner was fabulous. It was such a fun experience, Lobster makes everything better! lobster, in the pot

How to Boil a Lobster:

1.Fill a large pot about 3/4 with water. Add lots of salt, it should be salty like sea water! Bring to a boil.

2.Cut the bands off of the lobster and put it into the water head down. Return to a rolling boil and cover.

3.Let cook for 15-20 minutes for a 1 1/2 pound lobster.

I was so surprised at how much the color changed, they turned bright red! lobster boil

After cooking, the fun begins! We laughed as we tried to figure out how to crack open the claws to get to the meat, but we got the hang of it.

And what’s lobster without a delicious butter dipping sauce. Check out this Garlic Lemon Butter!
