Our Favorite Mac & Cheese This is one of our favorite recipes for macaroni and cheese because it’s creamy and delicious just the way it is. But, it makes a great start to adding leftover chicken, seafood and/ or veggies. We had some leftover broccoli we added this time. Patti loves to add mushrooms sautéed […]

Oktoberfest Sausage and Potatoes The weather here is turning coolish; it got down to 70 degrees on the patio tonight. Patti and I had to put on sweaters, we almost froze to death. This is a hearty and easy recipe for backyard barbeques and tailgating. Ken thought it was great with his favorite beer; Patti […]


Date Night Doins BBQ For Two

Easy Chili Nachos Ken loves all types of nachos and after a really busy day Patti wanted easy and not having to do a trip to the market. Happily everything we needed was in the pantry. With the help of our 10” Lodge Cast Iron Griddle and our Pacific Living Outdoor Oven we had a […]


Philly Mac & Cheese Patti was born & raised in Philadelphia, so she knows something about cheese steaks. Ken was born in Texas so he knows something about big beef. We were both craving comfort food and macaroni and cheese fills the bill. But, not with the shaved meat you get in Philly cheese steaks. […]


Caprese Stuffed Tomatoes for Two It was our date night and we wanted a side dish that was special, not the same old thing. But, still easy with lots of flavor. Ken loves Caprese salad and we love our Pacific Living Outdoor Oven and made full use of the smoker box. So, Patti made a […]

On our Pacific Living Pizza Oven we have done easy and wonderful desserts, appetizers, veggies, casseroles and main dishes. Tonight we decided to do something different…we did pizza. But, not just any pizza, though pepperoni is a personal favorite of Ken, we did a gourmet pizza with fresh shrimp, gruyere cheese and Alfredo sauce. It […]


I have wanted BBQ Chicken pizza for some time now thinking about it. We haven’t had one in over a year now. So, we BBQed an extra chicken at the Murrieta Farmer’s Market just for our pizza. But, you don’t have to make your own. For a time saver meal you can use leftovers you […]


We both wanted pizza and take out is so yesterday now that we have our Pacific Living Pizza Oven. Of course, we couldn’t decide what kind, Patti wanted bacon cheeseburger and Ken wanted Philly cheese steak, so we had both. Being we can make hot, fresh pizza at home the combination of possibilities are endless. […]
