Easy Dipped Pretzel Rods

When I was in college, my service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, chapter decided to raise money for a project…or maybe it was an event, but I digress… by selling chocolate covered pretzels.  We purchased large, sourdough hard pretzels, chocolate chips, shortening, and paraffin wax. We met at one of the members apartments to make them. […]

Barbecue Smoked Sausages

A favorite at parties and potlucks, the barbecue smoked sausages are easy, quick, and crockpot friendly.   While opening up a package of cocktail-size little sauasages is the quickest method, you can also just slice any smoked sausage (preferrably good quality sausage) to use for this tasty dish.

Pimento Cheese Spread

I have already shared the recipe for my dad’s pimento cheese. We called his (and most others) “pimento cheese salad” as it was very similar to ham salad. It is still my favorite, especially for sandwiches. However, I have also discovered some good “pimento cheese spreads” here in the South. To me, and probably only […]

Amish Ham Meatballs

If you like the outer glazed area of ham loaf, you will love Amish-style ham meatballs. The ham meatballs have more glazed goodness plus the flexibility of being meatballs. While they can still be served as part of the main course, they also can be served as hors d’oeuvres. Inspired by several recipes in some […]

Onion and Cheese Appetizers

I have a confession: I find these canapes (or whatever name you prefer) addictive and I am not that much of an onion fan.

Making Guacamole: Quick and Easy

I knew that every time I mentioned buying avocados to make guacamole my husband turned up his nose. It wasn’t until last year when we went to a Ovelle’s, which is known for really good guacamole made table side, that he finally confessed to never eating freshly-made guacamole and did not like any that he […]
