Review of Last Weeks Recipes:

  • BBQ brats.  Good.  Nice to have something different to do with brats.  4 stars
  • Creamy corn and zucchini was better than expected.  The bacon is what gives it flavor so go all out.  I used patty pan squash instead of zucchini.  I actually thought the leftovers were slightly better. 3 stars.
  • Enchiladas were just OK.  I've made better ones before.  2 stars
  • Blueberry muffins. I didn't make these.  I was informed by my 4 year old that princesses don't eat muffins.  So I made cupcakes from a mix instead
  • BBQ Grilled Cheese was good.  I skipped the dip.  Would make again.  4 stars


  1. "princesses don't eat muffins" . Lol Love it!

    1. She also said they don't eat fruit until I reminded her of the poisoned apple. Now apples are an acceptable princess snack.
