Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks
LOVED this recipe. Tuna is my favorite fish, but I had never made it myself before last night! I had two tuna steaks from Fresh Market in the freezer and decided to try this. I did everything except use cayenne and kosher salt. I couldn't find my cayenne, so I used Cajun seasoning and I used my garlic sea salt instead of kosher. I love my tuna rare, so that's where I messed up. I think I did 3 minutes on each side and that was way too long. The pan will be VERY hot, so if you want it rare, you have to move quickly. They were still delicious, but way more cooked than I like. I'm going to go to FM and get more! Thanks for sharing!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler
My go to recipe! My mom, rest her soul, used to make peach cobbler and I could kick myself for not standing over her and watching. Thankfully, when I found this recipe, she was still with us, so it got her seal of approval. I love this recipe. I love the simplicity of it b/c sometimes we get a craving for it at home or other times, I need an easy but scrumptious dessert to take to church events or parties. I have made this several times in the last four years or so, and it's always a hit. I follow it nearly to a tee except I usually use canned peaches (I keep them on hand for snacks). Also, the first time I made it, I did the flour mixture on top, but every time after that, I just used ready-made crust. This is soooo delicious! I am literally warming the oven to start making this now. Just had a craving and had everything I needed to make it, so here we go! Highly recommend this recipe!

Refreshing Cucumber Lemonade
Wicked good! I made this two weeks ago for our Easter cookout/bbq and it was such a hit! I am trying to wean my family off of sodas and get us moving towards more water. I think lemonade is a nice compromise. I always have cucumbers and lemons on hand, so I was glad that I didn't have to buy anything. I made the simple syrup first and then put the cucumbers through my food processor. They were nice-sized cukes, so they yielded a good bit of juice. Pro-tip: I used the pulp in my smoothies, so nothing was wasted! You could also make dressings or use the pulp in burgers, meatloaf, stock, or soup. The only thing I may try next time I make this is blending the entire lemon including the rind. I've done that before with other specialty lemonades, so I'm interested in seeing if it works here. I combined all of the ingredients with water and didn't have to add any extra sugar! YAY! I added ice to the pitcher which helped those who were skeptical enjoy it more. My batch had a perfect blend of the cuke and lemon. Neither overpowered the other. This was so refreshing! It will be a summer staple in my house!
