homemade Chicken Fingers

homemade Fried Chicken Strips

There is nothing better than a Summer picnic table laid out with home fried chicken, potato salad, corn on the cob, baked beans, and thick juicy slices of watermelon.  This was my childhood. I’ve learned that not many people actually fry chicken, but everybody loves it!  I grew up eating homemade fried chicken.  My grandma […]

Chicken Fajitas (for a crowd)

Chicken Fajitas (for a crowd)

Shepherd Pie

Shepherds Pie

The first time I ever had Shepherds Pie was on our honeymoon in Burlington Vermont at a little brew pub.  It was heavenly.  The next time I partook of this tasty one dish meal was in Ireland, six months pregnant on a bus tour through the British Isles, this time my shepherds pie was not so […]

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Beans

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Beans

We love the Spicy Black Bean Dip from Trader Joes.  The problem is the closest TJ’s is 3 hours away on a good driving day.  Hit traffic or bad weather and you’re looking at 4 hours to Detroit.  I usually stock up when I go, or when friends make the pilgrimage they know to grab […]

I love nothing more than a easy versatile recipe!  Sriracha Country BBQ Ribs can be served as a rustic meal,  or shredded for taco’s and sandwiches.  Any one of the three is sure to satisfy! Country ribs are a meatier rib,  cut from the rib end of the pork loin.  They are best when cooked […]

Boiled Dinner ~ a.k.a. corned beef and cabbage

Boiled Dinner ~ a.k.a. Corned Beef and Cabbage

Mouthwatering tender corned beef accompanied by cabbage, potatoes, and carrots.  The wonderful aroma of this meal  while it’s cooking is deliciously comforting. I grew up on “boiled dinner”.  It’s one of my dad’s favorite meals.  It’ sounds so ho-hum, but honestly it’s pure comfort  food.  It’s one of the dinners, from my youth, that I […]
