Tortellini Caprese Salad: Pesto Tortellini Pasta Salad with tomatoes, Mozzarella and fresh basil tossed in a Vinaigrette! This will be a hit at your next picnic or potluck!
Since the weather has been super warm out, we are grilling and BBQ’ing every weekend. I am so crazy about Caprese pasta salad, I found the Pesto Tortellini family pack and thought that a Caprese Pasta Salad would be wonderful with it. The flavors were so delicious! Everybody loved it, I’ll double the recipe next time! It disappeared quickly!…
This is my favorite summer side salad, I am actually very happy to have it as a meal! It is so delicious with fresh picked Broccoli, crispy Hardwood Bacon, Crispy Gala Apples, Chopped Hazelnuts, Slivered Almonds, Cabot White Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Zippy Red Onion and Dried Cranberries.
It’s like a Cobb salad but instead of lettuce, broccoli is the main star.
Our friend Jenny picked this HUGE Broccoli from her Veggie Garden and left it on our kitchen table! Lucky me, so immediately I thought of making a delicious salad with it! Thank you Jenny and Carol!!
If you need a biscuit in a snap, these are my go to recipe, I have been making them for many years and they are difficult to mess up! No kneading or rolling, just drop the dough by the spoonful into a greased or buttered pan.
When I prepare a Slow Roasted Pot Roast or Soup or Stew, hubs requests my Baking Powder Drop Biscuits to accompany them. They are light and fluffy and easy to whip it together. Light-gold and crusty outside, moist and fine-textured inside. Serve with butter!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup vegetable shortening
- 1 cup of cold buttermilk
- ¼ cup melted butter
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the shortening with a fork or use your hands until it looks like cornmeal. Add the milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly until well mixed.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly two or three times. Roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin to ½-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-inch cutter.
- Place the biscuits in a greased iron skillet. Gently press down top of biscuits. Brush the biscuits with half the melted butter. Bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown. Brush the hot biscuits with the remaining butter.

1-2 lbs of Hamburger
(depends on how many are in your family)
1 Small Can Tomato Sauce
1/4 C Water
1 Packet of Chili seasoning
2 Tsp Chili Powder
2 Tsp Cumin
1 tsp pepper
1 Bag of Or Ida Tater Tots
1 Small box of Velveeta Cheese
1 C Milk
1 Orange Pepper
1 Green Pepper
1 1/2 Cups Frito’s semi Crushed
1/2 C Chopped Green Scallion
Brown your hamburger. Then add tomato sauce, water, chili seasoning, chili powder, cumin and pepper. Put it in a casserole dish or pie plate. Set aside. Take Velveeta and cube it. Put it in a pan with your milk. Cook and whisk till cheese has melted and made a cheese sauce. If it is to thin then just add about 1 tsp flour. Whisk till all smooth. Cut your peppers and onions and set them aside.
In your casserole dish put your tater tots on top of the hamburger chili mix. I did most of a bag. Make sure they are not piled so they can cook evenly. Now pour your cheese sauce over the top of your tater tots. Top it with semi crushed Frito’s, green peppers and green onion. Bake it for about a half hour to 45 minutes. You want to make sure the tater tots are cooked through. Nothing worse then a frozen tater tot. LOL
