Barbecued Corn On The Cob Aubree Style

Barbecued Corn On The Cob

It’s barbecue season! Have you given barbecued corn a try? This recipe is so easy … And with Aubree’s favorite toppings it’s unbeatable. I love leaving the husks attached after cooking. It really makes eating the corn with your hands easier. And in someway the husks just add to the fun of the barbecue. The husk does break off easily after cooking for those who prefer the traditional eating method.

You’ll only need a few ingredients … And did I say gluten free. With vegan mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese it’s animal products free too.

Tasty, Nutritious, Easy Recipe for corn-on-the-cob, a barbecue staple!

Parmesan Chicken Breasts Baked With Pasta

Chicken Breast Baked with Pasta

This is so delicious! Can you tell? Here’s the story about this recipe. This is actually my recipe for Eggplant Parmesan. So, if you happen upon this page and are vegetarian just substitute one large sliced eggplant (with moisture removed) for the chicken. Veal? I can’t.

Remember my Italian food critic from my previous Italian cuisine posts? Just to refresh … 15 years of testing these recipes. This is his fav Eggplant Parmesan recipe. And it converts perfectly to chicken … on a bed of pasta.

It’s Mother’s Day Muffins

Mother's Day Muffins

Spicy Applesauce Muffins that can be reinvented. I love reinventing! Myself included.

Are you looking forward to Mother’s Day Sunday? Or, are you ambivalent?

Picking a Mother’s Day card for my mother is always difficult. I can’t seem to relate to the verses I find in the majority of Mother’s Day greeting cards. For many years this was a mystery … The ambivalence and struggle for the right card and gift. And I didn’t experience an ‘aha’ moment exactly.  But today the ambivalence about Mother’s Day has gone.

There are so many I appreciate on Mother’s Day, family and friends. My daughter and daughter-in-law, April especially … The young mothers of today. And I love being celebrated by my children.

I chose this recipe because of its simplicity. Breakfast in bed is a favorite treat children put together for mom. This recipe can be done by little hands. Or wrap these muffins in a special baking dish as a lovely gift for a mom.

Tex Mex Migas

Celebrating Cinco De Mayo & Austin’s Birthday Too!

Tex Mex Migas

This is definitely a variation on Tex Mex migas. The guest of honor, Austin, may just have the same hesitations when it comes to onions and fresh tomatoes as his sister, Aubree. We are a family that orders on the side. Watching When Harry Met Sally, we recognize ourselves in the restaurant scenes … well, not all the restaurant scenes.

I have given recipe options for those that prefer on the side. This recipe is so very easy and just a nice meal for guests or a large family celebration.
