Bloody Mary Shrimp Salad

Bloody Mary Shrimp Salad

I never really understood people who like tomatoes, but not ketchup. Or how about people who like ketchup, but not tomato sauce on their pasta? But I have to say that I do understand not loving tomato juice, yet loving everything about a bloody Mary. […]

Beef Picadillo Nachos

Beef Picadillo Nachos

What is your favorite thing about football? The thrill of competition? The sportsmanship? An exciting game between rivals? For me, it’s the snacks. Not that I don’t enjoy the game because I do like football. But I reallllllly enjoy the snacks. These Beef Picadillo Nachos […]

Salmon Sliders with Cream Cheese Cucumber Salad

Salmon Sliders with Cream Cheese Cucumber Salad

It bothers me that kids are now allowed to wear sweat pants to school. I don’t like that learning cursive has become a lost art. And I miss the days of answering machines and no call waiting. I am, however, happy that we no longer […]

Parmesan Crusted Eggplant

Parmesan Crusted Eggplant

There’s an old wive’s tale that eating eggplant at the end of a pregnancy can induce labor. To be honest, I’d never had eggplant before, but once I hit 39 weeks pregnant, I ate eggplant for almost every meal in hopeful desperation. It did nothing […]

Fully Loaded Hot Dogs

Fully Loaded Hot Dogs

If we were to play an impromptu word association game with the word beanie weenie, I bet I could guess your word. Is it ketchup? Ball game? Cheap? Can? Kid food? Fatty? Or did you just crinkle up your nose? Come on, don’t be snobby. […]

Mashed Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie

Mashed Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s pie, I now realize, is the food equivalent of the cliché “he’s not especially good looking, but he’s got a great personality.”  And if this version – Mashed Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie – were in high school, it would definitely be voted best personality. It […]

Hot Corned Beef Barbecue

Hot Corned Beef Barbecue

It’s that time of year again to make Hot Corned Beef Barbecue in the Instant Pot! Well, actually it’s time to make boiled corned beef and cabbage. Granny wasn’t Irish, and we are only a little bit Irish, so let’s shake things up. I’ve been thinking a lot […]

Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce

This could be the best chicken satay I’ve ever had. Why? Peanut butter sauce. Peanut butter is like that friend who always shows up. You know, the type of friend who you can go without seeing for months, and when you finally do get together, […]

Game Day Mac and Cheese Puff

Game Day Mac and Cheese Puff

I’d like to start by saying that I have no idea why this baked mac and cheese dish is called a “puff.” There’s nothing “puffy” about it. In fact it is so non-puffy that it is almost burly. Not that burly men can’t be puffy – […]

Broiled Sandwiches

Broiled Sandwiches

Football is the perfect excuse to make these individual broiled sandwiches. Does anyone else live with a football crazed, Patriots/Tom Brady super-fan who loves Super Bowl snacks, but is also trying to be health conscious? I can’t be the only one…ok maybe the part about […]
