Ah… summertime and the livin’ is easy.  School is out, the sun is out, the the grill is fired up and we are all grinning from ear to ear!

Mom's Macaroni Salad - An Affair from the Heart


I love to play hostess at home.  Whether it’s a large group or just the six of us, I am happiest when I have a gathering around my table.

Planning a gathering doesn’t have to be hard work.  Really all it takes is some yummy food, right?

We love hot dogs in our family, so when it comes to grilling, we really enjoy the simplicity of them, adding our favorite toppings and a nice salad on the side.


When I choose hot dogs, I always choose the 100% Beef variety, like these Ball Park® Park’s Finest Signature Seasoned 100% all beef franks. they are made with 100% beef, they contain no artificial preservatives, no artificial flavors, colors or fillers, and no nitrates.

Ball Park® Park’s Finest come in these amazing flavors: Jalapeno Cheddar, Slow Cooked Chili, Signature Seasoned, Slow Smoked Hickory and Cracked Dijon Mustard.

I take my “dog” with mustard and sweet relish. I also like them a little on the “burnt” side.  How about you?

Everyone in my family likes their hot dogs a little different, so when I make them, I like to pull out a bunch of condiments.  Ketchup, Mustard, Onion, Sweet Relish and sauerkraut!  In my opinion, purchasing the buns from the grocery bakery makes them taste all the better, too,   This time, we bought sweet Hawaiian buns.  Mmmm Mmm!

My husband got a new grill for Father’s Day last year, he loves to use it any chance he gets!
