I had been wanting some grilled kabobs all weekend long. Finally on Tuesday I was able to make some.
I used one package of sirloin, 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, two green peppers, two red peppers and two medium-large onions.

Cut sirloin and chicken into chunks. Do the same for the veggies. I put the sirloin and chicken in separate containers. The veggies layered in one dish. Pour some of this yummy, Honey Teriyaki, marinade over the meat and let marinate for a few hours.

I poured some over the veggies probably 30 minutes before cooking the kabobs. You can marinate them as long as you like.

Slide those goodies on the kabobs and grill until done!

German Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake

Alright..time for a recipe, huh? This one has been requested. I am glad that I made it for our church supper this week..that way it isn't in my house where I will eat it all! I did sneak a piece to try though ;-)

German Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake

1 box German Chocolate cake mix
2 sticks butter, divided & melted
3 large eggs, divided
1 (8oz) block of cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 (16oz) box confectioners' sugar
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x9 baking dish w/ cooking spray.

In mixer bowl, combine cake mix, 1 stick melted butter, and 1 egg. Beat at low speed until combined. Press evenly into bottom of baking dish; set aside.

In mixer bowl, beat cream cheese at med. speed until creamy. Beat in remaining 2 eggs and the vanilla. Gradually beat in the confectioners' sugar until smooth. Add the last stick of melted butter, beat at low speed until combined well. Stir in coconut and pecans. Pour evenly over cake mix layer. Bake for 45minutes-1 hour..until center is slightly set. Let cool completely before cutting into squares (this is the hardest step of all).
