1. Blueberry Crumble Bars
These blueberry crumble bars are simple to make, with only a few ingredients, many of which are probably sitting right inside your pantry.
If you don’t have fresh blueberries, try frozen.
Or, skip the blueberries and use raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, or even peaches.
Better yet, try a combo!
Point is, you need to have these blueberry crumble bars on hand for grab-and-go breakfast treats and late night dessert grabs.
2. Juicy Skillet-Fried Thick Cut Pork Chops
Juicy skillet fried thick-cut pork chops are a favorite in our house.
Easy to make on a busy weeknight and fall-off-the-bone tender!
Thick, juicy and seared just enough in a cast iron skillet (or a regular skillet) to make a nice crust, you needed to have these NOW.
And you’d be wise to include tasty accouterments like salad, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob.
3. Mojitos with Gin
If you’re looking for a new and yummy cocktail to try, mojitos with gin are a fun twist on a classic drink that screams summertime (or anytime, as far as I’m concerned)!
A classic mojito is a simple blend of rum, club soda, fresh mint leaves, limes and sugar.
And they’re also refreshing, which can be dangerous if you have a generous bartender, or a friend who’s intent on keeping your cup full.
(This is not necessarily a bad thing.)
A London Mojito—mojitos with gin, not rum—is something special, mostly because I happen to love gin a lot more than I do rum.
So, there’s that.
4. Oven Fried Chicken Thighs with Perfectly Crispy Skin
These easy oven fried chicken thighs—with perfectly crispy skin—will become a fast favorite in your house.
The perfectly crispy skin is delicious and worth fighting over!
Oven fried chicken thighs is a simple favorite recipe that reheats well, can inexpensively feed a crowd, and manages to please even the pickiest of eaters.
I like to pair them with creamy buttered mashed potatoes, and steamed corn.
5. Baked BBQ Pork Chops
Pork chops: they’re like a familiar and comfortable memory.
These baked BBQ pork chops are a simple way to get a yummy dinner on the table in no time.
We eat pork chops a lot.
They’re inexpensive and I find our local ALDI always has a good selection of cuts, from thick to thin, and from bone-in to boneless.
Add this easy baked BBQ pork chops recipe to your dinner rotation!
