I wanted to remind you about one of my all time favorite fun “dishes”. Years ago we fell in love with a restaurant called Brio, an Italian restaurant. Before your meal they give you a little dish of breads, and these wonderful, crispy, hard breads are featured. I was determined to go home and make … More CRACKER BREAD…..ADDICTIVE!!
Recently on Instagram I posted on making soup out of almost anything. On March 17, (St. Patrick’s Day), I made our usual dinner of corned beef and cabbage. I have learned that corned beef is one of the most stubborn meats God ever made, so you have to cook it for hours to get it … More Make soup! Have fun with “leftovers”
This post will be a little different than usual because it’s more an idea than a written recipe. You will use your own meatball recipe, or buy them already made, and add any veggies you like (but this combination is fabulous). And the sauce is already posted in my blog under “sauces”. Nick’s Golden Cuisine … More Greek Chicken Meatballs…..never thought I liked Greek food….till now!
I make bread literally all year. I have some “Go To” rolls that I always make and I don’t even need a recipe, I’ve been making them for so long. But on Thanksgiving I go all out and make Parkerhouse. They are a little more difficult and have a couple more ingredients (egg, more butter). … More PARKERHOUSE ROLLS… nothing else to say!
I know. I know. I am repeating an old recipe I posted 2 years ago but until the whole United States of America knows about it, I’ll probably post it every year!!

Angela surprised us at Bachelorette last night with these cookies. I’ll be honest. While I love pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, I am not necessarily crazy about a lot of other pumpkin products…..that is, until I took a bite of one of these! They are dee-lish! And they are a little “cakier” and softer than I … More PUMPKIN COOKIES… tis the season!
During the election, (and with football season in full swing), it seems like every day I see a different party dip. Most of the dips contain chicken, cheese, cream cheese and other binders.. And of course, for protein, there is crab, shrimp, dried beef, ham…..which makes me think you could do what I did: Take … More Election Night Dip…. Hot chicken, cream cheese, mmmmmm
I recently went to a new little interesting looking place called, “The Italian Lady”. It’s in Pinetop, Az., and is literally a shack with 3 ladies crowded inside, small kitchen, serving fabulous Italian food. We had two of the wonderful sandwiches, and I saw the soups at the bottom of the menu. We didn’t have … More SAUSAGE POTATO SOUP….with homemade sausage!
I sure raised some good cooks! The other night my youngest son, Adam, had us over and made a new appetizer…..OBOY! it was good. Basically it’s the ingredients that are in a caprese salad: mozzarella, tomatoes, and proscuitto.

If you are familiar with my blog, You know that the Salad section is the least populated in the table of contents. But Jackie came over for dinner last night with the Swinging’ Singles.
