Summer Recipes


Summer is hitting us with all the gusto it can muster I believe!  Between tornado season hitting the south hard and the temps now spiking to mid summer temps it has been a bit brutal to say the least!  It is beautiful out today though we have a nice breeze and the sky is blue so far even though I believe we are suppose to get some rain sometime today! 

I found some fun recipes to try this week and I also found a FREE E-Book by James Dobson on Parenting so here you go:

Now for some great Summer Recipes:

Chipotle Sliders

Prep Time/Total Time:  30 Min             Servings:  10



  • 1 package (12 ounces) Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 teaspoons minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, divided
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 10 slices pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise


  • Place 2 rolls in a food processor; process until crumbly. Transfer to a large bowl; add the salt, pepper and 6 teaspoons chipotle peppers. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 10 patties.
  • Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Top with cheese. Grill 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted.
  • Split remaining rolls and grill, cut side down, over medium heat for 30-60 seconds or until toasted. Combine mayonnaise and remaining chipotle peppers; spread over roll bottoms. Top each with a burger. Replace roll tops. Yield: 10 sliders.
