Quick Chicken and Bean Enchiladas

I often cook more chicken than we will use in one meal just to use the leftovers in other dishes. One of our favorites is this simple, quick dish.  No leftovers?  No problem.  You can purchase rotisserie chicken and have this dish on the table in no time. When I have more time I make […]

Roasted Summer Squash Halves

I purchased a bunch of very small yellow summer squash at a local farm.  I wanted to make them for dinner, but I did not have much time to cook.  Normally, I would have made them into cooked squash, but my husband needed to be able to eat them and I don’t like cooked squash […]

Frostop Drive-In in Huntington, WV

I read that this past weekend was the West Virginia Hot Dog Festival in Huntington, West Virginia. So, I thought it was a great time to talk about one of Huntington’s iconic places to buy a hot dog and a root beer, Frostop Drive-In. Frostop Drive-Ins have been around since the 1920’s. Their number peaked […]

Amish Sweet and Sour Dressing

When I think of an Amish salad dressing, I think of Amish Sweet and Sour Dressing. The celery seed laden dressing with vinegar and oil has long been one of my favorites. The first time I ever remember eating this style of sweet and sour dressing was at a Dutch Pantry restaurant on a garden […]

Amish Macaroni Salad

According a teenager eating this Amish Macaroni Salad for the first time, it is “the best thing I have ever eaten.” I am not sure everyone would agree as I know some people do not appreciate the sweetness of the dressing. However, I think many people would at least agree that they love Amish Macaroni […]

Pulled Pork Egg Rolls

Do you have leftover pork from the backyard smoker, a crockpot pork roast, or maybe a local barbecue joint? Making pulled pork egg rolls is a great way to use previously cooked pork for a delicious casual appetizer or snack. A simple filling of pork, corn, black beans, and bell peppers lends itself to a […]

Public House in Chattanooga, TN

Iconic foods and beverages of the South in the United States includes fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and sweet tea.  I had all three for lunch at Public House in Chattanooga, Tennessee. They were all delicious. In fact, two Southern staples were used in just one item; the fried chicken had been brined in sweet […]

Liege Belgian Waffles

While light, airy Belgian waffles that fill breakfast plates across the United States are very tasty, they are not my favorite of the Belgian waffles.  Yes, there are actually two different types of Belgium waffles in the world.  The light, airy one is often referred to as a Brussels waffle.  The other smaller, sugar-laden type […]

Hot Dog Chili Sauce with Black Beans

In West Virginia, we take hot dog toppings very seriously.  There are many great places in the state to buy deliciously topped hot dogs. What you say when ordering one of those toppings is dependent on where you are in the state.  There is a demarcation line that lies somewhere between the cities Parkersburg and […]

Lemony White Bean Dip

A delicious, healthy, and versatile dip that does not depend on being kept cold or hot is a summer party or picnic dream.  Lemony White Bean Dip fits right into that dream.  While it would be good any time of the year, the brightness of lemon combined with the light freshness of parsley is  great […]
