After living for several years in the Southwest, I really missed some of the quality convenience products that helped create memorable family meals as well as dinner with friends for weekdays and weekend celebrations. I was thrilled to find Kroger NOW has a wonderful variety of fresh seasoned and marinated meats ready to create some of my favorite meals which includes marinated pork, beef skirt steak, Baracoa, chicken breasts as well as a variety of street taco kits!

Murray’s Cheese Shop, located in Kroger Green Hills and the newly renovated Franklin Kroger Store, has been a one of the best treats to hit the Nashville area! They offer quality artisan cheeses from this country as well as around the world. I found Henning’s Chipotle Cheddar would be the perfect cheese for my quesadillas. It has a medium cheddar flavor with the smoky and spicy chipotle peppers. Try is sliced or sprinkled over salads! Yum!

Grilling corn and the onions brings out the sweetness of the vegetables and a slight char gives them a light smoky flavor just right for the quesadillas.IMG_7421

The Mango Avocado Salad with Grilled Corn and Black Beans can easily be transformed into a cool and spicy fresh salsa!

Chef Joshua is known for his desserts and the varieties of Tres Leches cakes were an exciting new find at my local Kroger in Green Hills! The cool and creamy dessert is soaked with evaporated, whole and whipped cream and then TOPPED with whipped cream; a perfect dessert for any night of the week and a delightful ending to a flavorful and spicy meal!
