Caprese Tuna Salad Stuffed Tomatoes

Caprese Tuna Salad3

Happy Friday, My Cooking Spot readers!!

I’m super excited to be a new contributor for My Cooking Spot, and I have a delicious recipe to share that’s perfect for a warm summer day.

It requires absolutely no cooking and takes less than 10 minutes and very little culinary ability to whip up.

While I love living in New Orleans – the food, the location, the fun, the list goes on… – the weather can be quite warm {read: hot & humid}. Don’t take this as a complaint though; I love the hot weather! I’d take a 100+ degree heat index any day over anything below 40 in a heart beat.

White-Peach-Iced-Tea

One of my favorite beverages to drink in the summer is iced tea. I always order it when I go out to a restaurant but I rarely make it at home. I feel like it takes too much time and it never tastes the same. I was super excited to find out that I can use my Keurig brewer machine to make my favorite cold beverages too, including my love for iced tea.

My husband and I received our Keurig brewer for Christmas, and we could not believe how much it changed our lives. Our favorite coffee right at our fingertips in just a few minutes. We are truly addicted to it, we don’t know how we lived without it.

Biscuits & Sausage Gravy

Hey y’all, its Madison from Wetherills Say I Do!  You can check out some of my older posts on My Cooking Spot here and here. I’d love for you to stop by my blog and check it out. I talk about things like marriage & weddings, recipes and DIY projects I love, and lessons learned in general.
What is your favorite meal of the day? Hands down mine is breakfast. I sometimes have a difficult time with breakfast though, because I don’t really eat eggs. When I was younger they made me sick to my stomach, so I’ve never really developed a taste for them. So when I stumble upon an amazing recipe for breakfast, I cherish it! 
This recipe originally comes from Steven’s dad. I posted a recipe for a Strawberry Jam Loaf from Steven’s aunt earlier, what can I say, I love family recipes! Steven’s dad made this recipe for us a few years ago. Before he made this recipe for us I had never really tried biscuits and gravy before. But man, I’m hooked now. One of the biggest benefits to this recipe is that it makes quite a bit, but sausage gravy freezes incredibly well, so you’re able to have it for a long time.

Croque-Monsieur

Croque-Monsieur

My husband and I are big sandwich people, especially when cheese is involved! We love having grilled cheese and soup for dinner this time of year. Although it is starting to get really warm here in AZ, we like to pretend it’s cold inside.

I had my first Croque-Monsieur about a year ago at a cafe for lunch one day and I couldn’t believe it took me so long to discover this amazing sandwich. A Croque-Monsieur is a French grilled cheese sandwich made with ham and Gruyere cheese, but my favorite part? The Béchamel sauce on top! It makes the sandwich so creamy! This is a sandwich that you can make for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Serve it next to a light salad or a bowl of soup and call it a day! It’s easy to make, but it looks so much fancier than your typical grilled cheese.
