Recipe From: Evelyn Evans


1 1/2 lbs. Lean Ground Beef

1       Large Onion (finely chopped) 

32     ozs. Tomato Puree 

2       tsp. Prepared Yellow Mustard 

1      Cup Light Brown Sugar

1 1/2 tsp. Chili Powder

In a large skillet, VERY lightly brown the ground beef and onions. Break up the ground beef as fine as possible. Drain off fat and set aside. In a large saucepan, combine all the remaining ingredients and cook over medium-low heat for about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the browned ground beef & onions. Stir, then simmer for 2 to 2-1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Or, place the sauce in a crock pot, set on low, for about the same amount of time. Sauce will thicken. Serve over your favorite hot dog.

Hot Dog on a Stick

Prepared on a grill or over a campfire, this fun dinner-on-a-stick requires just hot dogs with refrigerated breadstick dough wrapped around. Be sure to provide a few dipping sauces on the side.

Hi!  Today I have a crisp and crunchy recipe to spice up those chicken tenders your family loves. It is easy and ready to go in around 20 minutes. The rest of the recipes are for the grill. With all the beautiful weather we have been blessed with, grills are being fired up all over the neighborhood. Here are three slightly different, grilling ideas for you. A switch from every day hamburgers and hot dogs. I am not a fan of mushrooms but I am told a grilled Portobello rivals a steak for wonderful grilled flavors. I will let you decide that on one and let me know.

The grilled potatoes sound tasty and simple. They also seem like you could get creative with the seasonings and switch things out to your favorite herbs or spices. Or try something entirely new.  The grilled pineapple is also a very tempting idea. Give it a try, let me know what you think of it!

Thank You, and Enjoy!    Elaine


1    Large Egg

30  Buttery Crackers (such as Ritz, crushed, 1 cup)

3    Tbsp. Grated Parmesan

1/4 tsp. Paprika

      Salt and Pepper

1    lb. Chicken Tenders (or cut your own)

Heat oven to 400° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil. In a shallow bowl, beat the egg and 1 Tbsp water. In a second shallow bowl, combine the crackers, Parmesan, paprika and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper.

Dip each tender in the egg, letting any excess drip off, then in the cracker mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere; transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

Bake the chicken until golden brown and cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.

"These meaty mushrooms marinate in oil, onion, garlic and vinegar for an hour before they are tossed on a hot grill to cook to perfection. Absolutely sublime."

3    Portobello Mushrooms

1/4 Cup Canola Oil

3    Tbsp. Onion (chopped )

4    Cloves Garlic (minced)

4    Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar

Clean mushrooms and remove stems, reserve for other use. Place caps on a plate with the gills up. In a small bowl, combine the oil, onion, garlic and vinegar. Pour mixture evenly over the mushroom caps and let stand for 1 hour. Grill over a hot grill for about 10 minutes. Serve immediately. Servings: 3

4  Large Yukon Gold Potatoes

2  Tbsp. Freshly Thyme Leaves (chopped)

2  tsp. Garlic (minced)

3  Tbsp. Extra-virgin Olive Oil

    Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Before grilling the potatoes, blanch them. Put the potatoes in cold water and add salt. Bring water to a simmer and cook the potatoes until they are tender.

Preheat a grill or grill pan on medium-high heat.
Slice the potatoes lengthwise and add to a large mixing bowl with the thyme, garlic, and olive oil. Season with gray salt and pepper and toss to coat the potatoes well. Grill the potatoes over indirect heat for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side until well marked and fully cooked. Yield: 4 servings 

Recipe From: Michael C.


Grill pineapple slices. Make a sauce of half-cup peanut butter, a tablespoon soy sauce, a dash (or more) Sriracha Chili sauce, a handful of basil or mint and enough warm water to thin. (I’m tempted to say, “Throw away the pineapple and eat the sauce,” but the combination is sensational.)
