Light and sweet, quick and easy Lemon Cream Cheese Fruit Cookies are your new summer go to cookie/dessert.
I’ve made reference to the fact that my brother has a party every year. He calls it a bash……..it’s a family reunion!
I’m the family member who everyone tried to guess what I brought. This year I made the Two Ingredient Crust Veggie Pizza….my healthy contribution, and Lemon Cream Cheese Fruit Cookies….my not so healthy, but delicious contribution.
When ask what i was bringing……dessert just sorta popped out of my mouth. I love dessert…… It’s the whole reason for a meal…….in my humble opinion.
Now this past month has been crazy insane busy for me, almost to the point of not enough hours in the day! The culmination of the month was my brother’s party…..and a dessert!!! Yikes!!!! Continue reading “Lemon Cream Cheese Fruit Cookies”

Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce
Right now it may seem that summer will never get here, but soon it will be grilling time. Will you be ready???
Summer grilling requires a knock your socks off BBQ Sauce…….Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce is your new go-to BBQ.
Sweet, spicy, and thick this sauce will give you perfect bbq chicken, juicy tangy, sweet, spicy, ribs. And in a recipe I will post soon, oh what it does to a flank steak.
The debate over bbq sauce is never ending, Alabama White Sauce, the array of Carolina Sauces, Kansas City Sauce, or Texas Style, all boast being the best.
Personally I prefer a sweet sauce with a touch of spice. I like a sauce with brown sugar for it’s molassesy flavor……when you grill with it you get those crispy burnt edges that make bbq.
Spice is equally as important, just a touch of back ground heat and besides with Tim….it always needs to be spicy!
No matter your grill choice get ready for the summer BBQ season with our Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce!
1 – 20 ounce bottle of your favorite ketchup
½ tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon ground mustard
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
½ tablespoon black pepper
½ cup apple cider vinegar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried red chili flakes
Whisk all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat
and bring to a low boil.
Reduce heat to simmer. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, whisking occasionally. Watch closely during the last 5-10 minutes to make sure the sauce does not burn. The same will thicken during those last minutes of cooking.
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Use right away or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.
