1 package of chicken tenders

1 package of Skewers (if wood soak in water before cooking with them)

2 tsp. of Greek seasoning   (source:



  • Cut chicken into bit size pieces and place in bowl. Add seasoning and mix well.  Let the meat marinade for at least 1 hour but longer is better.   Have skewers soaking while meat marinades.
  • Take the pieces of chicken and push through on the skewers. Fill each skewer to your liking.
  • Put finished chicken skewer on a plate and repeat process until all chicken is gone.


You can cook these on a grill, oven, or stove top.    Cook chicken until done.

Tzatziki Sauce

Hi Guys, I wanted to have some Greek food this week so I made a little of everything I wanted to try.  This recipe is from that I found on Pinterest.   This Tzatziki sauce was great and you should try it.

I have a video on my channel on how to make this sauce as well, so please check it out.

Ruthy’s Hangout – Tzatziki Sauce





2 cups full-fat plain Greek yogurt

4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

1 English cucumber*, seeded and grated (about 1 cup)

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill (not dried dill)

1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, to taste

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



1 Stir all ingredients together until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

2 Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 2 days.

I recommend using an English cucumber so that you don’t have to worry about removing the seeds.  For a thicker sauce, feel free to squeeze the excess juice out of the shredded cucumber before adding it to the dip.

n a large bowl, beat the egg, milk and oil together.  Stir in the sausage and cheese.

Orange Muffins

Hi Guys, I have found another great muffin for you to try.  These are easy to make and very delicious.

I love making muffins these are such a great snack food when you are on the go.  This find was found on The Pastry Queen by Rebecca Rather website.





For the muffins:

1 cup milk

½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice

½ cup sour cream

2 large eggs

2 sticks (16 tbsp.) unsalted butter, melted

3½ cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1½ tbsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

Zest of 1 orange (organic if possible)

For the glaze:

¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice

1½ cups confectioners’ sugar

1-2 tsp. orange zest (organic if possible)



Pre-heat the oven to 350˚ F.  Line 16 wells of a muffin pan (or pans) with paper liners.  In a medium mixing bowl, combine the milk, orange juice, sour cream, eggs and melted butter.  Whisk together to blend.  In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Stir to blend.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated.  Fold in the orange zest with a spatula.

Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups.  Bake about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let cool in the pan 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack placed over a baking sheet.

To make the glaze, combine the orange juice, confectioners’ sugar, and orange zest in a small bowl.  Whisk together until smooth, adding more juice if necessary to achieve your preferred consistency.  Drizzle the glaze over the muffins while they are still warm.  Allow the glaze to set before serving.  Store in an airtight container.
