Creamy Smoked Sausage Tortellini

Here's another one-skillet supper that comes together quickly and easily. It's creamy-delicious, and became an instant hit at our house. Tortellini is one of those great pastas that can be prepared many ways as evidenced in this round-up of 13 Easy & Delicious Tortellini Recipes. I purchase my tortellini at the local grocer; it comes fresh or frozen, so my dinner prep time is greatly reduced.

Corn Salsa...serve on Fish Tacos or as a side dish!

Today's corn salsa recipe is another treat that mainly comes fresh out of the garden. Of course, all of the ingredients are available at your local grocer or farmers' market as well. This Corn Salsa is great, as shown here, on fish tacos and most Mexican dishes, and it is especially good with BBQ. Further, it makes a delicious side dish to nearly any meal; I ate it with my bologna sandwich for lunch yesterday, and the hubby, who was having sliced chicken breast, spooned a liberal serving over the slices. The perfectly seasoned vegetables have just the right mix of sweet with a peppery crunch. It only takes minutes to make and can be served immediately or chilled for later.

Party On The Porch: Helpful Household Tips, Savers, Recipes, Crafts & DIY Decor

According to the hubby, the true sign that summer break is going well is when he loses track of the day of the week and he has to check a calendar or ask someone...again, this is a good thing, he says. So, now that we find ourselves with less than a month until school actually starts (don't tell him. I plan on breaking it to him around August 1!), we still have weeks of fun things on the horizon...family reunions and some of our best friends are coming in soon for a long-overdue visit!  YIPPEE! Here's to squeezing every moment out of what remains of summer! Now on to the PARTY!! 
Welcome and thank you to old and new Porch partiers! Your projects are thoughtful, helpful, delicious, and clever. I wish there was room to feature more...projects like the Vintage Wrought Iron Table and Chairs Redo, Philly Cheesesteak Roll, Wetless Water Blob (or is it Redneck Water Bed?), Creating a Meal Plan Around Seasonal Produce.

Caribbean Chicken Burgers

It's summertime and that means the grills are glowing and burgers are searing. For something a little different in the burger category...something to spice things up a bit, I have a Caribbean Chicken-burger recipe for you today.

This recipe and several others came from Red Gold as part of their Facebook Summer Grillin' Party. They also supplied the Red Gold tomatoes to make the various recipes as well. I chose the Caribbean Chicken burger for the very reason I mentioned above - to spice things up and do something different! Red Gold has a wide variety of recipes to choose from at Red Gold.com

As part of the Facebook Summer Grillin' Party, Red Gold is giving away 4,000 "Summertime Tomatoes All Year Long™" aprons and one grand prize winner will receive a Green Egg® Grill during the contest (from June 25th - July 23rd). #RGParty #RedGoldRecipes
To enter, go to the Red Gold Summer Grillin' Party 2 Facebook page. Good Luck!
