Berry Mint Lemonade Vodka Cocktail

Berry Mint Lemonade Vodka Cocktail

I wasn't sure what to call this delicious cocktail. I decided to name it a Berry Mint Lemonade Vodka Cocktail. I filled my blender with these summertime ingredients and we all enjoyed this cocktail. You can make it as a virgin drink by omitting the vodka.

This recipe served 4 of us! I made fresh lemonade without sugar and the pear nectar is optional. I made the first batch without the pear nectar and when I was making the next batch I realized I had some in the refrigerator and decided to use it.. Really yummy..

Of course I used my KitchenAid® 3-Speed Blender!

BGE Sweet and Spicy Ribs
  • Time: 3 hours
  • Complexity: easy

BGE Sweet and Spicy Ribs

We just love our Big Green Egg and since my husband has made Pulled Pork 3 weekends in a row I decided to change it up for Labor Day weekend and make some ribs!

Here is recipe for the rub! (this recipe is for 2 racks of ribs)

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine together...  Rub the ribs, wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Cindy's Note:  I made this for 4 of us so I cut the ribs in half to make everyone an individual serving. You can keep it whole or cut it half.  It was also easier for the EGG.  I just love my Simply Organics Spices!

Canned Rasin Bread

I was watching the food network and caught this recipe.  I had the large 28 ounce cans from sauce and changed the recipe a little to accommodate the larger cans and make them more of an adult bread. 

From Cindy!  I don't like to open a package for just a portion of the ingredients.  Therefore I also wanted to use the entire container of raisins!

Channa Masala

My husband was in India a few months back and our friends sent him home with a suitcase full of spices.  I decided to make a dish with some of my favorite ingredients chickpeas and peas.  Traditionally this dish is not prepared with green peas but I love them so they were added and I loved every bite!  

I have to admit that these spices are not used often in my kitchen and the combination was a little hot " spicy hot" for me but I still enjoyed it very much.  I will defiantly make it again.

I also made a batch of my Paleo Naan Bread to dip in the sauce and what a super yummy dish!

Chicken Parmesan

My family loves when I let them know we are having Chicken Parmesan for dinner! It's funny because many times when we go out to dinner my husband will order Chicken Parmesan then say, "that is not as good as your".  I always ask him why he orders it when we both know he won't like it!  

I love my chicken very thin for cutlets and therefore for parmesan.  I hope you love my chicken parmesan.  It's so easy to make your own tomato sauce - here is my recipe!

Enjoy

Chocolate Chip Cannoli Cookies

I love cannoli's!  Let's just start there.  I remember when I was little my Nana and I would spoon out all of the ricotta filling from the shell of the cannoli and would laugh like little kids.  I really miss her especially around the holidays.  I just hope I am as good as a grandmother as she was to me!  

I came up with these cookies as it has the ingredients as a cannoli but in the form of a cookie. 

Please enjoy and Merry Christmas xo
