I thought it was a great time to highlight some of the Awesome Recipes I’ve cooked up this summer at my Summer Camp. Now remember again…….limited space people! But I was able to create some great family meals so far this summer. I’m not ready to give up the summer dining quite yet, I plan on hitting up the local Farmer’s Market this week since we are home for the week. Have I mentioned how nice it is to be home?? Ahhhhhhhhhhhh…Ok then here we go for the Top 10!
#10 Fiesta Chicken in the Crockpot – I didn’t initially create this over the summer time, however I did make it for a second or third time while camping this summer. Crockpots are a great way to make dinner when it’s HOT AND STICKY, which it’s been a lot this summer!
#9 Honey Roasted Carrots w/Almonds – I didn’t initially make this recipe during the summer either, but it did just quickly remind me that maybe I need to try this on the grill before summer ends! Just sayin.
#8 Grilled Potato Madness – Ohhhhh yes the madness of potatoes, this dish was fun, because I got to promote for Simply Potato, you know how good it feels to not pay anything for a 5.00 item. I actually just bought 2 items for Simply because I’m doing a back to school dish in September!!!!!! Stay tuned for another giveaway!
#7 BBQ Ranch Burger (Healthified)- This was a fun dish to make too, I never heard back from the group coordinator that organized “Unchained”, a group that remade dishes at your local chain restaurant to be healthier and just better for you. I loved doing that. I actually do it all the time! This burger was awesome!
#6 Ham & Egg Breakfast Cups – This is an awesome little breakfast! I bet any kiddo would love to make these plus bring them to school as well. Heck I’d bring these to work every morning for breakfast…….if I worked.
#5 Slow Cooker Sweet Curry Chicken – This was another favorite this summer. A few times a week I’d cook dinner for my mom and grandmother since they are up the camp with me during the week. They loved it! We all loved it. Easy too!
#4 Grilled Breakfast Pizza – Who doesn’t like to make a grilled pizza? Why not make it for breakfast??!!! Great family breakfast right here! Who would have thought that cracking an egg on a pizza would just be so awesome.
#3 Sweet & Tangy Ribs (in the Crock) – This was a another dish I made for my family during the week. I loved the taste of this and I’ve always wanted to make ribs in the crock!! Great pick here!
#2 Crock Pot Chicken Stir Fry – I actually don’t have a picture of this recipe because it’s one of the ones I tried when I first started blogging, before I even took pictures………..wow I’ve come a long way in almost a year huh……..can’t wait to celebrate Momma’s Meals first Birthday!
AND THE #1 VIEWED RECIPE SO FAR FOR THIS SUMMER IS……………..
Cool Cucumber Salad – I can’t believe this one scored number one!!! Not that it shouldn’t, because it’s an awesome summer side dish, the one thing I hate about summer is with all the sandwiches, burgers and dishes you make sometimes you just “feel” the need to have chips with it, but this summer I made up quite a few side dishes that went along great with sandwiches, pannini’s and burgers and this was one of them!! I’m also proud to say that it’s a #SundaySupper dish!! Yay to #SundaySupper! This group of women have just been amazing. Such an inspiration to make me realize how important it is to have that time to sit down every week as a family. We tend to slack more during the summer, but I am with my family a lot so most of the time we are cooking up burgers and steak tips all together, which to me is just as good as #SundaySupper. During the winter I treasure the time with just me, my husband and my daughter, nothing makes my day more than spending a few hours in the kitchen cooking dinner for my family on a cold blustery Sunday!
NOW GO ENJOY THE REST OF THE SUMMER………AND COOK UP SOME OF THESE AWESOME WINNERS!!
