8 oz. tuna, drained and flaked
8 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese
3 Tbs chopped pecans

Preparation:

In a medium bowl, blend all of the ingredients.

Southern Grilled Chicken Kebobs



We grill out almost exclusively in the summertime, simply because it’s too hot to do much of anything else.
And it’s still only the beginning of July.
If you’re like me, you get tired of the same old meats and veggies thrown over the open flame–and by the time dinner time rolls around, I’m usually too hot and tired to do very much kitchen prep.
Which is why I love quick and simple marinades–you can mix ’em up in less than five minutes early in the day, and all you have to do at dinner time is throw stuff on the grill.  This is hands-down my favorite kind of cooking and everyone in my family loves this recipe. So fire up that grill and enjoy.

If you're using bamboo skewers, soak your sticks in water for at least 5 minutes. Cut chicken into large chunks, and skewer. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour. 
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoon Siracha
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine your ingredients, through the cilantro. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Pour marinade over chicken breasts and turn to coat. Cover and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour.
  3. Grill on medium high heat for 6 to 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear.

Perfect Steak



If you’re looking for a steak recipe that’s easy to make, juicy, tender and delicious, this is the recipe for you. You can make this awesome steak right on your stovetop with just a few easy steps. You will not believe how awesome it is. My son said it was better than any steak he had ever had on the grill! I picked a nice sirloin steak for this recipe. Sirloin is naturally lean with just the right amount of marbling to give it a delicious texture and taste.
