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 […]

Champy’s Chicken on MLK

Champy’s Chicken on MLK in Chattanooga is a restaurant known for, you guessed it, its Fried Chicken.  Despite rave reviews from friends, I never ate at Champy’s until about a year ago.  By the time I finally tried Champy’s it already had multiple locations including a couple in Alabama and one in Georgia. It is now […]

Fresh Vegetable Pizza

I can’t remember many gatherings in the early 1990’s where someone didn’t bring or make a fresh vegetable pizza as an appetizer or finger food.  They were even available to purchase already made in my local grocery store.  I also can’t believe that my husband claims to never have heard of it.  Thus, I had […]

Vegetable Egg Rolls

The first time I ever had homemade egg or spring rolls was as a teen when my older sister was home for a visit and made them…despite my father’s aversion to trying new food.  At that time I was a picky eater, literally.  Although I would try almost any food, I would pick through everything […]

West Wing Cafe III in Washington, D.C.

I have been open about how little I thought of the food scene in Washington, D.C. especially in the early 1980’s.  Nothing brought home how much things had changed than my last trip to D.C. when I stayed at the same hotel as I did in 1984 on my first trip to D.C.  Then, I […]
