A big family favorite of ours is grilling out in the backyard during the summer months. Steak and hotdogs are ok – but since we are trying to keep it healthier, we do a lot of chicken and grilled veggies. Plain old chicken breast can get boring after awhile, so to try something new and fun, I decided we would have Tyson Cornish Hens that I got from Walmart. I decided to make my favorite soy based soy based chicken marinade because there was a 2$ off coupon that came with the Cornish Hens if you purchased a 10oz bottle of Kikkoman soy sauce. So I both both!

This has always been one of my favorite marinades to use on chicken.. This was my mother’s go-to recipe for marinating chicken wings with – and I always loved it when she made them! So needless to say, I thought they would be perfect for my Cornish Hens.

I started with a large freezer bag in a bowl and began measuring and combining all the ingredients. First, the Kikkoman soy sauce, olive oil & spices. Mix well, and add your chicken & chill overnight for juicy, tasty grilled chicken.

Next I got my Cornish Hens ready for my bag of marinade. I didn’t want to just stick it in the bag as a whole hen because I wanted the meat to fully soak up marinade on all sides. I thought about cooking the chicken spatchcock style on the grill so it would cook evenly. Instead, I thought that cutting the chicken into halfs would better suit our needs. Everyone gets a half hen for dinner, and the leftover one goes to work with my husband as his lunch. Works out perfectly! I always make sure to prepare extra food at dinner for this very purpose.

The next day, I decided to use my charcoal grill because I knew it would add another level of flavor to it. I lit my charcoal and waited for it to be hot enough, and placed my chicken skin side down, and let it cook for about 8-10 minutes with the cover closed. When I opened it back up, I turned the chicken 1/4 to create cross grill marks and close the cover again for another 10 minutes. #Grill4Flavor

After a good 25 minutes of cook time, I flipped them over and let it cook for another 20 minutes. When they were done, I pulled them off the grill and let them sit while I got the other sides prepared. Pair it with your favorite grilled or roasted veggies and you have a crazy-good meal! This marinade also works great for chicken wings – follow the same marinade recipe and bake them in the oven for 45 min at 400F for some amazing appetizers! #CollectiveBias

Best canned tomato recipe around! Tomato Bruschetta with Hunts Diced Tomatoes #DinnerDone #shop

Now with summer upon us, big heavy meals aren’t what we are craving these days. Our idea of summer food is all about fresh, delicious & healthy snacks. Tomato Bruschetta is one of my personal favorites from way back and I love making this one in the summer months. For this recipe, I used one of the  best canned tomatoes around – Hunts Diced Tomatoes!

I got the idea to make tomato bruschetta when I spotted the Hunt’s diced tomatoes on the shelf at Walmart. I’ve used Hunt’s before and I was confident that they are some of the best canned tomatoes around. I knew it would save me so much time and energy from preparing it from scratch, and I was right! All I needed to do was add a dash of salt and a little olive oil and it was perfect. What makes Hunt’s canned tomatoes so great is that uses a unique flashsteam peeling method. Read up on the how these tomatoes are processed in the most natural way possible.

I opened up the can, got my salt and olive oil ready and sliced up some strands of fresh basil courtesy of my basil plant that lives on my windowsill.

I place a bunch of leaves on top of each other, roll them up, and slice thinly. The aroma of basil with the aroma of tomatoes was intoxicating! No bruschetta is complete without a little bocconcini (or fresh mozzarella ) to go with! I sliced 2 whole balls, and placed them on top of the garlic toast and drizzle some olive oil over the top with a little bit of salt.

Cheesy Potato Casserole with Ore-Ida® Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes

This post brought to you by Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now that spring is here, Easter is not very far away. I can’t wait to get prepared for easter brunch with the family! Brunch is not something that we get to enjoy very often, so I jump at my chances when they pop up. Since my cravings can’t wait until a brunch opportunity pops up, it doesn’t stop me from making my own ‘brunch’ dishes for my family at home. Since having a child, I always make Sunday breakfast complete with eggs, sausage, hash browns with the works.

A really good brunch dish is this Cheesy Potato Casserole recipe that’s made with Ore-Ida® Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes. I decided to try it when I discovered it on the Walmart website. Who knew Walmart.com was a good resource for easy recipes to prepare?

With so many recipes to choose from, I decided to try the Cheesy Potato Casserole, and it turned out excellent! Not only was it delicious, but it was also easy to prepare so you don’t have to be a kitchen ninja to do this right.

With a greased pan and lots of love, I made my own best version of this dish. As you can see, it goes really well with eggs and toast! The Cheesy Potato Casserole got the most requests for second helpings from both JP and his daddy.. That’s when I know a recipe is a keeper – no leftovers!

Be sure to give it a try for your easter brunches – you won’t be disapointed!
