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 […]

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 […]

Creamy French Dressing

I am just going to say it:  Homemade salad dressing is so much better than the bottled stuff that I would make it even if it did cost more…and sometimes it does when there is a sale and coupons that make the bottled stuff almost free. When you make it yourself, you have more control […]

Vegan Lemon Curd

Lemon curd has always been something of an enigma to me. It is tart yet sweet. It is light yet rich. It is complex yet simple. I decided to take my dairy-free version a step further and make it egg-free as well. The vegan-friendly version still tastes rather rich despite the omission of egg yolks […]

Apple Salad with Vanilla Dressing

Although Apple Salad with Vanilla Dressing could be considered a side dish, I think of it as dessert. It is a great no-bake option that can easily serve a crowd. Plus, it is rich in flavor and fiber. As written, the dressing recipe has a very strong vanilla flavor. If you aren’t a fan of […]

Apple Barbecue Grilled Chicken

The end of summer means back to school, cooler nights (and hopefully cooler days), and transitioning to fall foods. To celebrate the unofficial end of summer I grilled chicken and topped it with a chunky apple barbecue sauce to welcome fall. Inspired by a dish that a chain restaurant used to serve in the fall […]

Raisin Sauce

This is my version of my mom’s raisin sauce that she would make to serve with ham at holiday or company meals when I was young.  Today, I make it to make one of my husband’s least favorite foods more palatable for him…ham.   This sweet and sour sauce is also very good served on most […]

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 […]

Mom’s Hot Dog Sauce

When I was in junior high, we raised money for our Girl Scout troop to go to England.  One of the thousands of projects we did was sell hot dogs at a booth at our county fair each year. The hot dogs were a hit in part due to the sauce (a.k.a. chili in the […]
