Grilled Pineapple Rings

Grilled Pineapple Rings

If you haven’t experienced the deliciousness that is grilled fruit, you seriously are missing out! Lucky for you, I’m here. There was a pineapple sitting on my counter for a good week, waiting to ripen. On the day it was ready to carve up, I thought back to that time I went on a grilled pineapple bender. I skewered them, sliced them, diced them and grilled those sweet tarts up. I had turkey burgers planned out for that night and subbed out the avocado for grilled pineapple rings. Boooo-yaaaa! The sweet, charred, delicious rings made a perfect accompaniment to the burgers…

Heath Bar Crunch Trifle

The Anti Mom Blog family has a slight problem with desserts. We are all addicted to them. Sweet, salty, sugary, chocolatey – you name it, one of us probably will inhale it! So on Father’s Day, it was no surprise that my husband requested a special dessert. One that is only made for such occasions due to the fact that it is full of chocolate and will send us into sugar overload if eaten regularly. Behold the ever indulgent, Heath Bar Crunch Trifle. (cue the heavenly angels singing in unison) This is so simple to make, but I warn you,…

Balsamic Grilled Veggies

No-brainer recipes are my specialty. Some days I can go into the kitchen with FoodNetwork abilities, other days, I want to get in and out then get my ass on the couch. Last week was all about no-brainers for me. I went on a grilling bender and pretty much grilled every meal making life pretty damn easy. Yay for easy clean up! I wanted to spice up my normal grilled veggies and ended up creating one of the most delicious sides of veggies my lazy ass has ever grilled: Balsamic Grilled Veggies. Holy mother of vegetables were these suckers delicious. The tang…

Courtney Studios ~ South Florida’s Premier Family Photographer

I can remember far back to when I was a little tyke rummaging through our family albums in the basement. Looking at all the photos of my mom and dad sans children, all the black and white prints of relatives from back in the day and of course my own baby pictures. I loved seeing all these memories displayed in front of me and envisioning I was there with them. Photos tell the story of our life, captured in that one instance, for us always to remember. I thank my lucky stars that my parents have these memories encapsulated for…

{Slow Cooking} Quinoa Chili

Take a guess as to what’s in the slow cooker… It’s Quinoa Chili! (Did the title give it away?? ) I could eat chili at least once a week. I’d put that shit on everything – hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, veggies, ice cream & salad. OK, OK, maybe not salad…. Experimenting with different ingredients on some of my fave dishes has become a fun past time for me. If my family and friends are reading this, they are most likely scratching their heads in confusion & thinking, “I thought her favorite past time was drinking??!” Yes, it still is but…

Survive Summer with the Sanewich Survival Kit

As of June 3rd, it’s officially summer in our household. (cue the horrified screams from parents) The feeling of complete and utter insanity has already sunk in as the first week of summer set in. Thoughts of summer camp, pool days and lazy days bounce in my head and the onset of panic joins. How am I going to keep 2 rambuncious kids entertained for 3 months without sending me to the insane asylum? Ok, all my seasoned parents might be thinking I have turned on the dramatics hardcore with this one, but it is our first official summer –…

30-Minute Turkey Meatballs

I know what you are thinking – this Italian broad is going to try and get me to believe that you can make meatballs in 3o minutes that are TURKEY!? You betcha. Contrary to popular belief, it is not an Italian sac-relig to use turkey meat when making meatballs, in fact, I find them pretty damn delicious. My kids gobble them up and well, that is reason alone to whip them up. Thanks to the lovely folks at Jennie-O for sending me a pack of ground turkey meat, I thought I would share this freakin’ easy peasy lemon squeasy Turkey…

Spicy Onions Perfect for BBQs!

BBQ season is officially upon us and what summer wouldn’t be complete without a great new recipe to try out on your friends and family. Every BBQ my family has had while growing up was over the top. I mean, tons of food from steaks, burgers, hot dogs, chicken, sausage – you name it, it was probably grilled and served up! Not only did we stuff our selves beyond content, it usually rained. But it never stopped the fun or the flow of alcohol! My mom has a few staples that she makes that give our BBQs an edge, like these Spicy…
