Homemade Ribs Sauce

Believe it or not BBQ Sauce is not the only sauce that goes with ribs. Next time you grill I challenge you to leave the BBQ sauce away and try to find something new, your own unique home recipe – maybe it’s a garlic and yogurt sauce, or a grilled pineapple and lemon sauce or maybe it’s a guacamole sauce. You will see that the different sauces you use will change the flavor and looks of the dish and it will be like a new dish every time. Ours is really simple and it includes ingredients that you find in any refrigerator – ketchup, mustard, sour cream and garlic.

Zucchini and Feta Cheese Fritters

Yesterday I went to the farmer’s market and I got 6 fresh local zucchini. I absolutely love zucchini and my favorite way to eat them is to slice and sautée them with garlic. However, since I got 6 I though I would try  both sweet and savory dishes so I used 2 for our potato and zucchini soup for lunch today, 2 went into our zucchini and feta cheese fritters (recipe coming next) and I am saving the last 2 to make zucchini doughtnuts tomorrow.

My kids love rolling the dough and crafting their own pizza. It gets a little messy with all the flour and cheese covering the countertops but they seem to enjoy it so I patiently wait until they are done and make sure to add a little more cheese for them before popping the pizza in the oven.

Breakfast Inspiration

I thought I’d post some breakfast inspiration for the week ahead.

We have 3 kids between ages 2 and 6 so to say that mornings are a hectic time would be an understatement. Between waking them up, trying get them all dressed, fed and out the door before 8.15 we don’t have time to enjoy a family breakfast every day so I try to make up for that in the weekends. One rule I follow during the week is that I try to provide something else every day for breakfast. Yes, I try to not run our of cereal and milk and that is my go to choice if I don’t have time for anything else but otherwise I try to put some fruit and veggies in their breakfast.
