Its price per pound can be rather expensive, but a little can go a long way…especially when paired with eggs. Although my family loves smoked salmon in mini-frittatas, smoked salmon deviled eggs disappear from the platter faster than […]

Although I am more of a pressure cooker kind of person, I do occasionally plan far enough in advance to use my crock pot for a slow cooked dish or meal. Braising a lesser cut of meat is an excellent use of a crock pot. It is amazing to me that you can take a […]

Simple Red Enchilada Sauce

I have never been a fan of enchiladas. Although I had a few that I liked, I did not care for the sauce on the majority of the ones I had…I used to think it was the corn tortillas until I realized I liked them in other dishes. My sister started making enchiladas for her […]

Mom’s Warm Bacon Dressing

Whether it was on leaf lettuce straight from the garden, baby spinach from the grocery store, or straight from the cast iron skillet on the stove, I loved my my mom’s warm bacon dressing. The sweet and sour dressing becomes opaque and thick after cooling down…I can still eat it by the spoonful. Although a […]

Baked Pork Chops with Rice

My mom would often bake pork chops smothered in canned cream of mushroom soup to keep them moist. Sometimes she would serve them with rice. Although I had not even thought about mom’s mushroom soup pork chops in quite a while, I started craving them. If I made them for my family, my husband would […]
