Tuna Macaroni Salad Recipe

 

 Macaroni salad and potato salad are traditional cold side dishes for family gatherings in the South. Granny-Ma’s version was pretty basic — pretty much just elbow macaroni, mayonnaise, onions, celery, and sweet relish. When I met my husband’s family, Italians from the Northeast, I was introduced to tuna macaroni salad. […]

Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

 

 Spaghetti sauce (or tomato gravy to my Italian friends) is a staple in most households. Rather than watching over the pot for a long, slow-cooked version on the stove, it’s just as easy to toss it all in the crockpot. You won’t need to worry about stirring or boilovers, and […]

Alfredo Chicken Bubble-Up Recipe

 

 Alfredo chicken is a perennial favorite main dish. This version turns it into an easy casserole using canned biscuits from the dairy case. They bake up golden brown on the bottom, yet become sort of a dumpling on top. It’s a fun combination of alfredo chicken and chicken & dumplings. […]

Scampi Red Snapper Recipe

 

 Red snapper can be bland. It doesn’t have much flavor, even when you pile on the herbs and spices. This recipe goes over the top with a creamy sauce based on classic shrimp scampi. It has all of the lemony garlic flavor you love in scampi and really makes whitefish […]

Pomegranate Oven BBQ Spareribs Recipe

 

 BBQ spareribs are a big favorite of mine. They are expensive at restaurants and usually disappointing. The barbecue afficionado will argue that they must be smoked low and slow on a wood-burning grill, but time and weather do not always permit cooking them the tried and true way. My oven […]

Sweet Spicy Glazed Chicken Recipe

 

 Chicken is a good alternative to meat, but it can easily become boring and run-of-the-mill. This simple glaze requires only four ingredients, but the result will have your taste buds singing. It’s sweet, but not overly so, slightly spicy, and tangy for a nice change of pace. I buy leg […]

Easy Cowboy Chili Recipe

 

 Chili purists will argue that adding beans is a definite no-no, and I actually prefer mine sans beans. However, adding beans not only helps stretch the meat, it also adds vegetable protein and fiber to the dish. Although I’ve used kidney and pinto beans here, feel free to use your […]

They are perfect for a Mardi Gras breakfast or for any special holiday or birthday weekend treat. Pardon my drool… 🙂 The Author Says: “”Whenever […]
