Blueberry Individual Pies

Sometimes you just need a dessert, right? I think I allow myself to think it is healthier if I add fruit. I know, that's silly but fruit, like blueberries, makes these individual pies yummy.

They are great as a dessert or yummy for breakfast. We like them warm with the blueberries oozing out.

Fried Green Tomatoes

When I was young, August always seemed to be the time for fried green tomatoes. Maybe because we had a big garden and my mother was tired of seeing red tomatoes or the fact that my father loved them.

Now here I am married to a man who loves fried green tomatoes too. He has to eat them all since I hate tomatoes. 

I know that tomatoes are so good for you and if you love tomatoes check out 5 Benefits of Eating and Growing the Best Tomatoes Ever.

Wake Up Wednesday

Here we are near the end of August and it is still so hot here. I guess summer is staying around for a while longer. I like that idea, only wish it was a little cooler. Hopefully the hot temperatures have cooled some were you are. In the meantime, lets party!

Polynesian Chicken with Pineapple

What to do with all of those pineapples? Use them in recipes. If you follow me, you know that I am having a bumper crop of pineapples this year. You can see that post here.

We have eaten them fresh, in smoothies and frozen some. So last night I decided to add some to my Polynesian Chicken. What a great combination

Eclectic Red Barn: Polynesian Chicken with Pineapple

This is such an easy dish to prepare and you do that in one pan. 

Cut up the chicken, dice the pineapple, add in the other ingredients, stir together and bake. Easy, peasy!

I served it over rice, but you could eat it plain as well and save the extra calories. Maybe just add a vegetable.  See the nutritional information at the bottom of the recipe and you will be surprised at how few calories this recipe contains.

Sweet Teriyaki Beef Skewers

Is it hot where you are? Wow, it is hot here in southern Florida. I know it is summer, but really?

We have been grilling out a lot these days, so when I saw this recipe for Sweet Teriyaki Beef Skewers, I knew that I had to make them.

I made a few changes to the original recipe, like adding some grated fresh ginger and mango/pineapple juice instead of just pineapple juice. 



I marinated the beef for only 6 hours instead of the 24 it called for and they were still great. This would be great to do the night before so all you would have to do is grill them when you come home.

The recipe stated that the pineapple juice was optional, but I think it gave it added flavor, even though I used a mango/pineapple version.


 I love recipes that I can easily make changes to. Next time I am going to try chicken instead of beef. 

Hope you enjoy this recipe and try and stay cool!
