Easter Mint Patties

I first saw this recipe before Christmas, put it on my to do list, but it didn’t happen.  So, when I saw the same sort of thing on Pinterest but done in Easter colours, I just had to try it!  This is where I saw the original recipe!

Now I of course didn’t follow the recipe exactly.  I had to employ my “cheater” methods to make it faster and they actually worked!!!!

While you can find the actual recipe at the link above, I will walk you through the steps I took doing it my way.  The end result was great and they are very yummy and minty.

Crock Pot Pork Chops

This is a dinner I made the other night for “the boys,” something quick to put in the crock pot.  It simmers for a while and the pork chops come out tender enough to cut with your fork!  I just served it with some boiled potatoes (cooked in chicken broth and minced garlic) and some veggies!

Breaded Pork Chops with Mushroom Soup

The other day I was making pork chops for dinner.  I couldn’t decide how to cook them.  There are so many different ways but this time I decided to use an old favourite…. Pork chops with mushroom soup.  I am sure there are many different versions of how to make these, I am going to post mine!

Burger Bowls

For dinner tonight I decided to make something different… again.  

I recall making these or something similar a while back and decided to revisit it.  It is exactly as the title implies, a burger bowl.  I made “bowls” out of ground beef and then filled them with lots of good stuff and baked them.  A bun less burger if you will.

Meat-Za Pizza

I have seen many different versions of this online, so I decided to make my own version for “the boys.” I used 2 full pounds of lean ground beef, and honestly thought I was making way too much.  Dillon ate his one pound meatza pizza in less that 2 minutes.  I swear, he inhaled it.  Chris ate half of his but we had also gone out for a late lunch so he was still a bit full from that!  Either way, it was obviously a hit!

Cherry Cheesecake 

I haven’t done so well the past few days with my posts. Between Dr’s appointments and everything else I just haven’t had a chance.

I decided to try to sneak in a quick post on my phone with a family favourite summer dessert because I will be out of town tomorrow for another Dr’s appointment!

My family has been making this exact recipe for as long as I can remember.  It is one of our go to dessert recipes that everyone loves!

It isn’t as sweet or heavy as some cheesecakes can be, making it perfect for a summer dessert.
