My 3 favorite ways to cook Salmon

Having a Memorial Day BBQ? Want to make something a little different then the regular hot dogs and hamburgers? Grab a salmon filet while your at the store and try out one of my favorite ways to cook Salmon! When my husband and I were dating he went to Alaska to go fishing. He brought home freezers full of halibut and salmon. Lets just say it took us years and years to eat it all! I had to get creative of ways to prepare it. I have tried multiple ways to cook fish. I decided today to share my 3 …

Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken

I purchased a whole chicken planning on boiling it and using the chicken in a few dishes, but instead saw the idea on Pinterest to place it in the crockpot. And of course the recipes that stuck out most to me were the juicy rotisserie ones! So I gave it a try. I looked at about 20 different recipes and took a little from each of them and came up with this one! It was juicy and probably one of the best rotisserie chickens I have ever had! And my husband was shocked to hear that was even made in the …

Philly Cheesesteak with Garlic Mayo

I have never made a Philly cheesesteak sandwich before and personally I think i have only had a Philly cheesesteak two or three times before. But decided to make these for my husband one Saturday. They were a hit! These can be used as a dinner too.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches Makes 6 mini …

Crockpot Tri-Tip Tacos

  I saw tri-tip on sale at our grocery store and decided to give it a try. First we marinated it and then put it on the grill. And it caught on fire! haha it was still way yummy after we cut off all the burnt edges. So I figured that that probably wasn’t the best way to cook it with the marinade I had tried. The next time I got it I forgot about the “fire incident” and tried it again…same thing happened! So the next time I tried the crockpot. And boy was it good! We just ate …
