Am I the only cook on the planet who hasn’t heard of Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole? Apparently, when it comes to church food Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole has been a hit for a long, long time! My friend, Lila, made this casserole for a Community Bible Study fellowship lunch this spring. At first, I thought I […]
When you are in Manhattan the choices for a 5-star meal exists around nearly every corner. But when my Chief Travel Mate and I were reminiscing with friends, Catherine and Russ about Russ’s awesome 4-ingredient Spiessbraten … well, it didn’t make sense to go anywhere except to the market to buy a pork tenderloin! Russ quickly […]
As soon as Thanksgiving dinner is in our review mirror and before we start eating leftovers (or turkey noodle soup or turkey and rice casserole) I am ready for pasta, shrimp, beef, anything quick and easy. Enter … Shrimp Tortellini! This incredible recipe meets my criteria – simple, fast, and unbelievably delicious! Starting with fresh […]
Last February my son, Cory, and his wife, Ann, began using Blue Apron, a meal delivery service. Both Cory and Ann work outside the home and so they share the meal preparation. But Cory enjoys cooking much more than Ann does and so he is the primary cook (and she does the clean-up!) Blue Apron […]
This recipe for hot chicken salad reminds me so much of my new favorite veggie casserole! Before you think I’ve mixed up my fowl and my veggies let me explain. Every once in a while I eat something that I just can’t get enough of. It is usually when lots of people are around and […]

I know, you know, I never met a Quiche I didn’t like. So imagine my excitement when I saw this picture from Maureen at The Orgasmic Chef. It is autumn in the United States and pumpkins and spice and all things nice are dancing in my head. This includes butternut squash! Maureen begins her blog […]
How often do you hear … “These are the best _______ (fill in the blank) you have ever made”? Ever? I cook … a lot. My sous-chef dish-washing mom and The Chief are very kind and complimentary of my cooking. But recently I received the “these are the best meatballs you have ever made” response followed by the appropriate […]
This recipe is all over Facebook and quite a few websites including Food.com. The first recipe I saw called for plain Greek yogurt as the main ingredient. However, my sous-chef dish-washing mom is not a yogurt fan and so when I saw the same recipe made with mayonnaise, I knew that would be for us.
Stuffed chicken breasts are easy to make, fun to serve and at my house always get rave reviews. Bacon-wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken is still the #1 most viewed recipe on my website. But, come on, we can’t eat bacon and cream cheese every night of the week!
