Creamy Cucumber Salad


This Creamy Cucumber Salad hits the spot for a refreshing side dish. It's perfect when served with a steak or grilled chicken.

Note: This particular recipe does not call for draining the cucumbers. As such, there will be liquid that releases from the cucumbers to create a sauce. If this bothers you, after peeling and slicing the cucumbers into rounds, lay them out on paper towels. Sprinkle them with a small amount of salt and let them drain for one hour. After letting them drain, take a few papers towels and gently press them onto the cucumbers to pick up more of the moisture. Wipe any salt off the cucumbers and proceed with the recipe.

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.


Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!
