“Instant Pot Baked Apples”

Tasty Dinner Recipes In Lisa’s own words; “This is one of those deceptively easy recipes – that took forever to figure out. Wanting to duplicate my mother’s hour-long oven baked apple down to every detail slowed the process down about a year. I was ready to give up when my husband who won’t eat a fresh apple to save his life but adores baked apples implored me to persevere. Out of frustration and lack of time I just cored and tossed the apples in the cooker with wine and sugar – whatever.

I gave up trying to keep the apples perfectly intact and making look them exactly as my mother had. Baked apples are imperfect, and that’s OK. Some will hold their shape, some won’t, but they will all be tender, creamy and delicious. Sometimes the only thing that keeps you from completing a task – is demanding a perfect outcome before getting started.“ Get the recipe

Meegan is serving up Midwestern food and boy, is it tasty!


Tasty Dinner RecipesIn Meegan’s words; 

This is my Grandma’s recipe and the BEST Macaroni Salad, ever. It has everything you want: Ham, bacon, cheese, eggs, veggies, and a creamy dressing! If bananas are nature’s perfect food, Macaroni Salad is man’s perfect food.

I mean, it contains ALL the food groups and nothing could be more fun to eat.

I have a special place in my heart for macaroni salad. The best one I ever ate was from the long-gone Al’s Town and Country Market in Oxford, a tiny Wisconsin town with a population of 400 or fewer.

“Tin Foil Sausage and Veggies Dinner”

Tasty Dinner RecipesI am going to warn you all right now that I am totally & 100% obsessed with tin foil dinners and there may be about 500+ more tin foil dinners showing up in the next couple of weeks here (sneak-peak: there is a tin foil lemon parmesan crusted salmon coming soon that is ??).

This recent obsession with tin foil dinners is really just a rediscovery.

My mom made a very traditional tin foil dinner every few weeks for us growing up.

She’d cook them in the oven year round and we as kids loved them.

I have to say, we here at Back Roads Living are all in for this one!  I love tin foil cooking!

“Bulgogi Korean BBQ Beef”

Tasty Dinner RecipesMy Korean Kitchen is a food blog that talks all about my love and passion for Korean food and Korean fusion food.

It includes step by step pictorial instructions, cultural discussions, and product and restaurant reviews.

My husband suggested that I start some kind of food blog back in March 2006. He often said he had some difficulty finding out about Korean food before he married me. (Back then, there weren’t many Korean food blogs or websites.)

So, originally I aimed to help foreigners living in Korea to give them some tips on living and cooking there. Korean BBQ beef, which is perfect during the grilling season or it simply makes a great family dinner.

Using this cast iron skillet, it can be cooked on the stove top and served in the skillet.
