Blogger Spotlight.. 'Mandy's Recipe Box'

   Hi guys! I am so excited to announce my very first 'Guest Blogger Spotlight!'
I have a list of blogs that I am just obsessed with! I have to stop by them everyday to see what yummy foods they've posted. So many of the meals that have graced my kitchen table are because of these awesome blogs. I thought that I would start sharing the love and let you all know about them too!

   I am honored to announce my first guest! She is basically my bloggie BFF. If there is such a thing!  lol  She has tons of amazing recipes and we have so much in common! It has been so fun getting to know her through Facebook and Emails. She is such a sweetie! 
Okay, I'll quit rambling on. I'll let her tell her story....  

Hey everyone! It's Mandy from Mandy's Recipe Box. I am so excited and honored to be here on Life as a Lofthouse. As you already know, Holly has an incredibly delicious blog and I am happy to know her.

I am a wife to a hot farmer named Lance, and momma to 3 pretty awesome kids- Hannah, Preston, & Emma. We live in the rural (translated:middle of nowhere!) Idaho. I am from Ogden, Utah and then met and fell in love with Lance. After living in Ogden for 3 years, we moved to Idaho so Lance could join the family farm. I have definately been converted to a country girl. I love my life!
Today I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes using a grill. It is so simple, which is my motto. Who says incredible food has to be complicated? I hope you enjoy it and send some warm weather thoughts my way, would you? Thanks!

Greek Souvlaki
2 lbs. pork roast cut into bite sized chunks
Accent or Season Salt
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
 olive oil
whatever veggies you want to add

Mix all seasonings together. Place pork in a container and sprinkle seasoning over it. Toss to coat. Pour in enough olive oil to cover the pork. Cover and marinate over night. Put onto skewers with veggies (peppers, mushrooms, onions etc), wrap in foil, and cook slowly on the grill. About 20 minutes or until done. Before serving, remove foil and sprinkle with lemon juice.

I hope you like this recipe as much as I do. Be sure to come visit me at Mandy's Recipe Box. I'd love for you to say Hello!

Thanks, Mandy, for stopping by and sharing this great recipe!

I will try this later in the spring as there is massive amount of snow on the ground and grilling is tough when it's so cold! Thanks for the great recipes, Holly! Thanks for stopping by my blog, too!

So great to meet your bloggie BFF, Holly! I'll go say hey to Mandy. :)

I forgot to mention that you can do this in your oven as well! Just wrap them in foil as usual and put them in the oven. Then you can have a taste of spring and summer all year round!
Thanks again Holly! : )
