Key West Grilled Chicken and Grilled Pineapple Recipes

While perusing Pinterest earlier in the week, I ran across two recipes I wanted to try and try them together. Key West Grilled Chicken and Grilled Pineapple. Both turned out to be delicious. I added Grilled Zucchini to the mix and a bag of baked Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Fries. The family declared it a keeper meal. The marinade for both the chicken and pineapple are so easy. The zucchini I washed, sliced, brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with Trader Joe’s 21 Spice Blend and grilled.

This meal made me want to throw on a bathing suit and flip flops and sit by an ocean. Okay…truth is, I want that any day!

Another Apple Recipe – Famous Brunch Casserole

This is a different but delicious breakfast casserole. I made it for my husband’s office one morning and they loved it.

Famous Brunch Casserole

1 lb. bacon – cut into fourths and fry until crisp. Drain off fat.
1 (20 oz.) can apple pie filling
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (I prefer sharp)
1 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 1/2 cups milk
4 eggs

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×13″ casserole dish. Spread pie filling in bottom of dish. Sprinkle this with the sugar. Spread cheese and bacon over filling. Beat Bisquick, milk and eggs until smooth. Pour over the top. Bake, uncovered, until a knife inserted comes out clean, between 30-40 minutes. Serves 8 people.

Recipe Monday – Strawberry Fluff

Strawberry Fluff
or AKA
Pink Party Salad
There are food items that can take you back to childhood memories. This recipe is definitely one of those for me. My mom would make this salad anytime we went on a picnic, vacation or holiday. My dad often referred to it as Pink Stuff and we all four loved it. It is a simple salad that could even be used as a dessert. It is great for pot-luck dinners.
I made it this week for a friend’s family and made us some for home. My son has requested this recipe to be included in a recipe book I am doing for him. He will be so glad it is an easy one.
Ingredients:
1 large can crushed pineapple
1 large box of Strawberry Jello (you can change the flavor of the Jello to any fruit flavor you prefer)
1 carton of small curd cottage cheese
1 large carton of Cool Whip
In a medium saucepan, mix pineapple and Jello. Heat until just boiling. Let cool completely. Add cottage cheese and Cool Whip. Stir together, pour into bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. Easy peasy. 🙂
