Black-Eyed Pea Salad

1 Comment 30 July 2014

Black-eyed peas, they’re practically the official bean of the Southern U.S. Except the most common variety is apparently called a California BlackEye and…whatevs. We be lovin’ them in the South. The pea is ours! Typically I do as most good Southern people do, adding them to a pot or crock pot with ham or bacon […]

Tropical Shrimp & Scallop Ceviche

2 Comments 10 July 2014

Thanks to making this recipe, I now know how to pronounce “ceviche”. A friend and I looked it up and found on of those voice recorded pronunciation deals via Google. I’m no pronunciation writer or anything, but it sounds like Seh-vee-chay. Hope that helped. If not, I apologize. Moving along! Things that drew me to […]

Creamy Red Curry Coleslaw

No Comments 06 June 2014

If you’ve cooked long enough, you’ve probably had to improvise with a recipe. My local grocery store often doesn’t have specialty ingredients such as miso paste. And the original we based this recipe off of uses miso. I know by now my grocery store wasn’t likely to have it, so I got red curry paste […]

Grilled Criss-Cross Potatoes

No Comments 21 May 2014

Welcome to what is, apparently, a retro food – the criss-cross potato! This past Mother’s Day weekend, the hubby made us a wonderfully fantastic and simple meal of steak and potatoes. He asked if we should make criss-cross potatoes, something he and I haven’t had since the earlier years of our marriage. I remember them […]

Baked Potato Chips

Probably my most favorite potato chip ever is the Baked Lay’s BBQ chips. They’re so light and crisp, and the BBQ flavor is a little sweet and doesn’t try to sock me in the mouth with too much sass. We probably should have invested in Lays company stock while I was preggers because those chips were […]

No Comments 28 March 2014

Ever get a great idea for a recipe and, like, you’re all excited and then you discover that it’s already a thing? Yep – that. But heck, that’s OK, because the urge to marry kimchi and fried rice together was a great excuse to visit one of our local Asian markets. I love the one […]

Baked Parmesan Polenta Fries

2 Comments 12 February 2014

I’ve never had polenta before. Or so I’d always thought. As it turns out, they’re just grits, people! Yes, I’m the last person to discover this. BUT…surely we’re not the last people to turn what is, essentially, grits, into oven-baked “fries”. Sis Blogging Partner came across this recipe and it sounded like a good way […]

Crescent Roll Asparagus Spirals

No Comments 07 February 2014

This, fellow food lovers, is a great appetizer or side to make this Valentine’s Day. It would also work great for parties, baby showers, you name it. We had ours Super Bowl Sunday along with some yummy beef stew. I knew canned crescent rolls were versatile, but this is the first time I’ve made anything […]
