Fresh Corn Salad

Fresh Corn Salad

Corn on the cob is the perfect complement for a 4th of July hamburger and hot dog cookout. But why not try a different take on corn this year? This fresh corn salad is a delightful change and can be made ahead, simplifying your cookout day work. Be careful to heat the corn just until [...]

Layered Enchilada Casserole

Layered Enchilada Casserole

I don’t know about you, but I get into cooking ruts and forget about whole groups of meal choices, like casseroles.  They tend to get overlooked at my house.  I get into slow cooker mode or grilled meat mode and those wonderful casserole dishes slip from my memory.  Here’s one of my favorite Mexican casseroles [...]

Cheese Terrine

Cheese Terrine

I fell in love with this recipe many years ago.  So many of my favorite things, all wrapped up into one yummy appetizer.  This is simple to make and looks beautiful on a serving platter surrounded with sliced veggies.  To serve, use a serrated knife to cut the terrine since there are provolone slices separating [...]

Baklava

Baklava

Okay, I do admit to being a food snob when it comes to certain kinds of foods, and baklava fits that category. So many times you see baklava with a couple pastry layers at the top and at the bottom with a fat nut layer in the middle – I’ll leave that one alone. If [...]

Creamy Marsala Pork

Creamy Marsala Pork

This is the perfect weeknight meal. It tastes like it took hours to prepare, but really only takes about 30 minutes. For a side, try riced cauliflower. It holds the sauce and is a fantastic taste to pair with the pork. Ingredients: 6 thin sliced boneless pork chops 3 T olive oil 2 T butter, [...]

Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole

Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole

I’m always on the lookout for new casserole recipes, and this one is fantastic. It combines the flavors of a loaded baked potato with chicken to make it perfect as a main dish. While it takes a little while to bake, the prep work is simple and straightforward. This is definitely a dish that will [...]

Low Carb and Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Bars

Low Carb and Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Bars

My daughter really wanted to make something sweet this weekend, but we have been trying to cut out sugar from our diet and eat mostly low carb foods. She decided to do a little internet searching and came up with this recipe for low carb sugar cookie bars from All Day I Dream About Food. [...]

Slow Cooker 4-Ingredient Pork Tenderloin

Slow Cooker 4-Ingredient Pork Tenderloin

I love a good slow cooker recipe. I especially love one that has no preparation, requires few ingredients and still tastes amazing. This recipe fits that description perfectly. It came about by accident, one of those I-wonder-what-I-have-on-hand moments that turned out quite delicious. Ingredients: 2 pork tenderloins 1 package Ranch dressing mix 1 package dry [...]

Beer Cheese Dip

Beer Cheese Dip

Super Bowl Sunday is here! Are you looking for a great man-food appetizer? This dip fits the bill. Pair it with soft pretzels or pumpernickel bread for the perfect pregame snack.     Ingredients: 1 pound American cheese (such as Velveeta), cut into cubes 1 cup whole milk 1 cup dark beer 1 T Worcestershire [...]

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese

I absolutely adore my slow cooker.  Anything that can make the daily activities of my life easier is definitely a blessing.  My daughter recently requested macaroni and cheese for dinner, so I thought why not try it in the slow cooker?  It turned out great and wonderfully creamy.  The only downfall is that this is [...]

Homemade Hot Chocolate

Homemade Hot Chocolate

Homemade hot chocolate is so easy and tastes so much better than the packaged varieties. It’s super creamy, and you can adjust the sugar to your liking. I prefer mine more chocolatey than sugary, but feel free to add more sugar if you so desire.   Ingredients: 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup water 2 [...]

Baked Acorn Squash

Baked Acorn Squash

There’s something wonderfully comforting about a roasted vegetable. Their natural sweetness comes out, and the char they get from slow roasting can’t be duplicated, outside of a grill. Acorn squash are made for roasting. Add a little butter, sugar, pure maple syrup, and a touch of spice and you have the perfect accompaniment to a [...]

Gratin Dauphinois

Gratin Dauphinois

This is one of my favorite potato dishes. Thinly sliced layers of potatoes with lots of cream and topped with cheese – what’s not to love? The dish gets its name from the Dauphine region of France, and the French are famous for their gratins, with little crispy bits of food stuck on the side [...]

Slow Cooker Chicken White Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken White Chili

Now that it finally feels like winter in Tennessee, it’s time for some chili. This white chili version has chicken along with cannellini and garbanzo beans for a hearty meal, yet lighter in flavor than traditional beef chili. This dish cooks in the slow cooker, after a little stove top preparation, and is ready when [...]

Almond Bark Cookies

Almond Bark Cookies

Christmas is just around the corner. So many goodies to make, so little time! This recipe is a quick one, but sure to get rave reviews. They’re technically not cookies since you spread them out and break apart into pieces once hardened, but you could drop them by spoonfuls onto the waxed paper, making them [...]

Hot Reuben Dip

Hot Reuben Dip

I love a good Reuben sandwich. Maybe it’s my German heritage, I don’t know, but the combination of creamy cheese, tangy Thousand Island dressing, and the bite of sauerkraut makes me very happy. Now imagine all these flavors melded together into a hot dip. Well, here you are, imagine no further. You’re welcome. Ingredients: ½ [...]
