Three cheers for the red, white, and blue! Ever notice how the patriotic holidays all come together? You get Memorial Day at the end of May, then Flag Day in mid-June, and then the Glorious Fourth at the beginning of July. Maybe it’s because the weather is just so nice this time of year, it seems like we need plenty of occasions for cookouts. Or, on the other hand, maybe it’s because summertime means summer… read more

Seriously, it tastes a lot better than it sounds… Spring and Summer are the perfect time for salads. The cool, refreshing crunch of a great salad at lunchtime, or as a dinner side just tastes SO GOOD during the warmer months. But let’s face it, the same old greens with the usual suspects (carrots and cherry tomatoes) can get BORING….. Let me tell you, there is nothing boring about this Garbage Salad. The name Garbage… read more

Pico de Gallo Fresh Salsa

read more

This fresh salsa tastes good on EVERYTHING! So, y’all know that I’m a big believer in making your own condiments. Dips, sauces, dressings…they’re all better (and cheaper) when you make them yourself than when you just pour them out of a bottle. And that goes double for salsa. If you’ve never had any salsa but that limp, vaguely reddish stuff that comes in a jar, then you are in for a revelation. Fresh Pico de… read more

Like nachos, only better. Sometimes I think you can do anything with Tater Tots. Top ‘em with cheese, like a loaded baked potato. Pop ‘em in the waffle iron and make perfect hash browns. Spice ‘em up like buffalo wings, and make a tasty party appetizer. The totsabilities are endless! But this time, I think I may be taking tater tots where they’ve never gone before. Tater Tot Nachos. Tachos. It makes sense in a… read more

Take your rice to a whole new level. What is it about Chipotle, anyway? Well, it’s a lot of things, of course. The peppy, fast-paced atmosphere.

That’s all great stuff. But when I think about what makes a trip to Chipotle feel… read more

The Poke Cake rises to new heights. OK, raise your hands if you remember my Easy Candy Bar Poke Cake from two years back. You know, the one that’s called a poke cake because you poke holes in it once it’s baked and drizzle it with condensed milk…and caramel…and whipped topping and chopped candy bars. Oh yeah, you remember it now. Quit drooling on your keyboard. So that was pretty fantastic, right? I mean, how… read more

Who says dip has to be savory? OK, pop quiz time. Just off the top of your head, can you name five kinds of dip? I’ll bet you could, and I’ll also bet I can guess what at least some of them were.
