Memorial Day Weekend

Wow! I didn’t think Memorial Day Weekend would ever get here with all the snow that we had this spring. It’s the official week to summer kickoff and that means, fishing, camping, graduation parties and family reunions. I usually entertain that weekend and I am always looking for easy quick ideas because I want to be outside in the fresh air by the lake and enjoying my company. So, I have a recipe that I want to share with you that you can make ahead of time and it’s so quick and easy you to will be able to enjoy your company outdoors instead of working in the kitchen! 

Creamy Pesto Pasta Salad

  • 7 oz. Classico Traditional Basil Pesto Sauce
  • ¼-cup Mayonnaise
  • 2-1/2 cups Rotini Pasta, cooked
  • ½-cup Ripe Olives, sliced
  • 3-Tablespoons Oil Packed Chopped Sundried Tomatoes, drained
  • ½-teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼-cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese, Optional
  1. Mix pesto and mayonnaise in large bowl. 
  2. Add remaining ingredients. Mix lightly. 
  3. Chill for 1 hour and serve. 
  4. Optional:  Sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese on top. Serves 6

Now to top that great salad off make sure to pick up Simply Lemonade out of our Dairy Department. Exciting news they now have Peach Lemonade and it is awesome and so refreshing. I promise you will want to serve this all summer long!

Have a great and safe holiday weekend!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

A few years ago, I tried Corned Beef and Cabbage for the first time and found a new comfort food. The combination of Cabbage, Carrots and Corned Beef was fantastic. This year I thought why not try some appetizers for those St. Patrick’s Day parties. Continue reading

It’s March and you know what they say about March… in like a lamb, out like a lion. Well, I’m hoping this year that doesn’t come true. As much as I love winter, I sure love spring and can’t wait for those fresh flowers to pop up! In the meantime, there are evenings I just like to stay home cozy up to a roaring fire and grab my favorite blanket. I call those “movie nights” and I look forward to them.  Continue reading

Coborn’s Valentine’s Day Dinner

Coborn's Valentine's Day Dinner

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and if you are like me and don’t venture out to a local restaurant to celebrate I’m here to help you plan out your romantic meal at home step-by-step and it’s easy to do. Don’t worry I’ve got your back!

If you want to wow your significant other let’s start in the Meat Department at any one of your local Coborn’s stores. The days leading up to Valentine’s Day just stop in and ask for the pre-cooked Prime Rib in the heart shaped containers. Don’t forget to ask them about Johnnie’s French Onion Aujus also. This pre-cooked Prime Rib is fully cooked so all you have to do is place it in a glass dish, pour a little of Johnnie’s French Onion Aujus over the top of the steaks and then place them in your oven at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes and you have the most succulent and tender steak imaginable.

If you want something different in the steak family we also have Ribeye’s or Surf n Turf which is a New York Strip and Lobster. Don’t forget to melt a little butter to drench your lobster in or a wedge of lemon to serve on the side, but you better hurry in because the heart shaped containers are only available while supplies last.

To add to that wonderful meal don’t forget a little dessert and we now have a new item that I am so excited about. Stop in the Produce Department and ask for the strawberries dipped in chocolate placed in a heart shape container. I also can’t forget that the strawberries are drizzled with white chocolate, which is my favorite flavor and it truly puts the whole dessert over the top.

Now Valentine’s Day is not Valentine’s without a little wine to serve with your meal and I have a perfect wine that pairs so well with steak orDSC02776 seafood. It’s called “Wente Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon”. It is a full body red wine and has black cherry and plum flavors along with an undertone of coffee and spice.

Now last but not least don’t forget to stop into our Floral Department for those beautiful roses to impress your friend. You put this all together and I know you will have a magical evening.

Since it is Valentine’s Day, I want to show my appreciation for all of you! I am going to make it even easier for you to impress that special someone in your life with a little giveaway! I’m going to give one lucky winner a head start with planning that special meal. Just “Like” & “Share” my video and you will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE Prime Rib Dinner along with one dozen roses!!!

Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day to all!!
