Linguine Salad

Linguine salad was one of my mom’s summertime favorites. I’m not sure exactly when she started making it or where she acquired the recipe. I do know she loved to make it to use some of the many vegetables my parents grew in their garden. She also loved having family and friends to the farm […]

Kohlrabi Slaw

Initially, kohlrabi was one of the vegetables that my husband and I grew in our garden many years ago out of curiosity. We had little knowledge of it except that it had an interesting shape, was related to the cabbage family, and grew best in the spring and fall (like cabbage). However, it did not […]

Papi’s Cuban and Caribbean Grill in Kennesaw

My daughter complained about being hungry. I really did not want to eat at any of the chain restaurants that were around us. A quick search on Urbanspoon led me to find a decently rated local “Cuban and Caribbean” restaurant. Although Papi’s Cuban and Caribbean Grill is an independent, local restaurant, they actually has several […]

Grilled Fruit Salad With Honey-Mint Dressing

Lighting up your grill may not be the first thing that you think of while your buying fresh fruit, but it is something to consider.  This is especially true if you chose fruit that may not be quite as ripe or as sweet as you would like. Ripe fresh pineapple is delicious, but one of […]

Egg Salad Stuffed Tomatoes

I went to the grocery store to look for inspiration. I needed an idea for a simple finger food that would be a good sandwich substitute in a semi-formal setting. The first thing that got my attention was a large package of vibrant red on-the-vine tomatoes. They were smaller, but not too small. As I […]

Fried Corn

Fried corn is a dish that had to of originate in the southeastern United States. I do not remember having corn prepared this way until after moving to Georgia. It is fresh, sweet, simple, and delicious. It should not be confused with fried corn-on-the-cob, which is husked and cleaned corn cooked in a deep fryer […]

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Whether you eat candied sweet potatoes as a side dish or as dessert, candied sweet potatoes are a sweet and delicious treat. The sweet potatoes not only bring great flavor, but nutrients and fiber to this classic dish. As I make this version of sweet potatoes only a couple times of year at my house, […]

Amish Red Beet Eggs

Before I was married, my only experience with red beet eggs was tasting one that was sold from a large jar at a small corner grocery store when I was young…it was not a pleasant experience. The eggs were commercially made (and still are sold under the same brand name), an odd color, and had […]

Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

My local Whole Foods had organic purple sweet potatoes on sale. They were a beautiful dark purple, long and fairly uniform in diameter. I just had to buy a few. When I arrived home, I realized I did not really have a plan for using these lovely root tubers. It only took one glance at […]

Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs

Smoked salmon is a great item to have on hand anytime, but especially though the holiday/entertaining season. 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 […]
