This week’s featured… Continue reading »

Maple Bacon Waffles

This is going to be deliciously sinful!  I’m kicking up the waffles with real maple syrup.  And as if that wasn’t enough, I’m going to add the bacon right into the batter.  Who doesn’t love bacon with their waffles.  I especially like when they syrup and bacon mix together.  So I thought why not just add it right into the… Continue reading »

Zucchini Ribbon Salad

Seems like every time I turn around either some one is giving me a zucchini from their garden or I am picking one out of mine.  I’m having a hard time keeping up.  I’ve made fried zucchini, zucchini bread, sauteed zucchini and so on.  You get the idea.  I wanted something fresh, light and really easy.  So today I’m making… Continue reading »

Pulled Pork

There is nothing better than a Pulled Pork sandwich.  They work equally well at your Memorial Day cookout, as the main attraction at your favorite football teams tailgate or for New Year’s Day dinner. I love to load mine up on an onion roll, cover with sauerkraut (most people like to top with coleslaw, but they don’t know what they are… Continue reading »

Black Bean ‘n’ Spinach Enchiladas

  I first made this Black Bean ‘n’ Spinach Enchiladas recipe a number of years ago when it was first published in Southern Living magazine way back in 2005!  It was so yummy and delicious that it has stood the test of time and is still a family favorite.  Sometimes I make the version with chicken, but love the vegetarian… Continue reading »

Chicken with Herb-Roasted Tomatoes and Pan Sauce

  I don’t usually cook with tarragon, but I love it in chicken salad.  So I though that I’d give this recipe a try.  Right off the stem it smells a bit like  anise, which if you know me, I don’t like black licorice at all.  In fact it’s the one food that I think I can say that I will… Continue reading »
