Grilled Corn, Potato and Feta Salad

corn_potato_fetaIt is Memorial Day weekend, so I really wanted to grill something but I didn't have time to go to the store, which also means I didn't have time to look and see what was on sale this week. So I looked around my house and found some things to throw together that are all pretty cheap to begin with. This will make a great side dish to any protein and also a great dish to bring for a picnic or potluck this summer. This will make about 4 side dish servings.

 

Apple Betty

I made this over labor day weekend and I meant to post it then, but I am just getting around to it now. I figure apples are still on sale so it is still worth it. This is such a simple and delicious dessert, it is perfect for any night of the week and a great way to use all those apples you have from apple picking. Apparently this recipe has been around forever, but I am only just discovering it now.

 

Simple Bruschetta

Brown Rice Salad

brown rice saladI made this while I was home at my mom's last week and she said she is going to make it all summer long. I thought I would help her out by posting the recipe. This is great for a bbq or picnic because its cheap and you can make a large bowl of it. Sorry there is no photo. I will be sure to take one next time I make it. I like to eat this cold or at room temperature but feel free to serve it warm as well.

Turkey and Smoked Gouda Pie

This is the recipe for one of my videos. I love this recipe so much. Probably because it contains my favorite things, meat, cheese, and pie crust. Really how could you go wrong with that. it is so simple and easy to make as well. It's a great dish for entertaining or for any night when you are looking for a little comfort food to warm you up.
