BBQ Kielbasa

I apologize for not having a picture of these. I assure you, they are excellent.

BBQ Kielbasa Appetizers

2 lbs of Kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch pieces, cooked and slightly browned
1- 18oz bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. Dijon Mustard
1 beer

In a large saucepan, bring beer, sugar, BBQ sauce and mustard to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes and add cooked kielbasa. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 45 minutes until sauce is glazey.

Rating: Well, since these disappeared so quickly that I could not get a picture, I would say they are pretty good. 5 stars for sure!


Salsa and Margaritas are a summer staple around these parts. This is a fresh salsa recipe that's easy to make. Thanks for sharing Michelle!


6 Roma Tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
2 jalapeno peppers, diced
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. lime juice
3 cloves of garlic, minced
salt to taste
pepper to taste
chili powder to taste ( I used 1/2 tsp.)

Mix together in a medium bowl, chill and serve!

Helpful hint: Kevin and I love our Vidalia Onion Chopper. This makes dicing these vegetables effortless. It's well worth the $20.

Peanut Butter Fluff

Amy will testify that this Peanut Butter Fluff, or Fluff as she calls it, is the best thing since sliced bread. It's amazingly easy to make, it makes a great frosting for fudge brownies or just eat it with pretzels or graham cracker sticks like we love to do. This is a staple for get togethers. It's sinfully delicious.

Peanut Butter Fluff


1 tub of Marshmallow Fluff
1 c. Jif Creamy Peanut Butter (heaping)
1/4 c. milk

In a large bowl, mix ingredients with mixer until fluffy. Serve with graham cracker sticks or pretzels. Try not to eat the whole bowl, I dare you.

Rating: Fluff speaks for itself, but for this blogs sake I give it a 10!
