Adrienne's Cucumber Salad
I've been making this recipe for a while now. Every summer we grow cucumbers in our garden, and this is a great way to use them. I always slice the cucumbers using the blade on the side of my box grater, so that they are all thin and uniform. I slice up a large red onion, and before pouring the boiling vinegar mixture over the top of the cukes and onions, I season them well with kosher salt. Instead of just using dried dill, I use a 'lemon and dill' seasoning that I get online from Cherchies, and I use it pretty liberally. The amounts for sugar/water/vinegar are perfect, and I absolutely ALWAYS make this the day before we plan to eat it for the first time. Great recipe!

Mexican Rice II
this is definitely my go to recipe for mexican rice. after making it several times, I have it just the way we like it at my house! first, I saute the chopped onion in the oil till carmelized, and I use extra virgin olive oil. once the onion is carmelized, I add the rice and toast it for a couple of minutes, before adding the rest of the ingredients. in addition to the ingredients listed, I also sprinkle in some smoked paprika, gives it THE BEST flavor!! lastly, after the rice is cooked, I drain and rinse a can of black beans, and add it to the rice till heated through PERFECT beans and rice to serve with any mexican dish!

Brown Sugar Smokies
the main thing to know about these, MAKE TWICE AS MANY AS YOU THINK YOU WILL NEED!!! people turn into animals around these, they are SO GOOD!! I really pressed a good layer of brown sugar into the inside of the bacon (the side that was going to wrap around the little smokie). I baked these on a broiler pan sprayed with non-stick spray, and they took about 35 minutes. a great tip to lessen cleanup, line the bottom part of the broiler pan with foil, then you just throw away the foil.
