Brazilian Style Barbeque

It’s summer time and if you have had the nice weather we have had it is also a great time to cook on the grill. I found a recipe for Brazilian Steak Kabobs on

Using McCormicks Grill Mates, Brazilian Steakhouse marinade, add soy sauce, lime juice, worchestersire sauce, and olive oil. Add any vegetable for grilling and marinade for several hours. The outcome is delicious.


Angel Food Cake and Strawberries






A nice light spring dessert that I will be serving with dinner on Easter Sunday is Angel food cake and strawberries.  If you are lucky enough to live in an area where you have local strawberries simply slice up a few and add them to a piece of cake.  They are usually sweet enough by themselves.

If you live in an area, like I do, where the strawberries are shipped from California and tart, slice the strawberries,  add a little sugar.  Let the strawberries sit for about half an hour then enjoy with a piece of cake.

If you want a little more sweetness, though it is certainly not necessary, you can ice the cake with buttercream icing before serving.

Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli Slaw

I received this recipe from my mother in-law many years ago. I’m not sure where she got it but my husband and I have made some changes so it is not so sweet  and is relatively easy to make.



1 pound pkg. broccoli slaw (lately I have only found 12 oz. packages)

1 pound pkg. Cole slaw

1 bunch green onions, washed and chopped

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1 4 oz. pkg. sliced almonds

2 pkgs. Ramen noodles (chicken flavor) broken into smaller pieces

1 stick butter


  1. Mix together broccoli, Cole slaw and chopped green onions.



2.   Place butter in a skillet.  Once butter begins to melt add sunflower seeds, almonds and broken ramen noodles in a skillet.  Cook until lightly brown.  Place on a pad ofIMG_0302 paper towel to soak up some of the butter.





3.  Mix together ingredients for the dressing.  Add to the slaw and  let stand.

Dressing Ingredients:

1 cup oil

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

flavor packages from ramen noodles

4.  Add crunchies (step 2) and mix together and serve.IMG_0304IMG_0305
