Three Bean Salad

They say three’s a crowd, but it’s a winning number in my Three Bean Salad! This colorful concoction of beans soaked in a tangy, subtly sweet marinade will be an awesome potluck addition or an amazing side for any meal.   Marinades are magic makers. They can turn a tough-as-leather steak into a tender, flavorful feast or a dry chicken breast into a juicy sandwich centerpiece. Heck, they can even elevate something as bland as tofu into a savory substitute for that steak. Guess what else they’re good for? Salads! No, not a big green monster of a salad,...

Sure, you can enjoy a tasty grilled sausage with an icy pint of your favorite brew, but...

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Whether it’s a fancy dinner party or casual tailgate, these Crab Stuffed Mushrooms will wow your guests. A creamy, cheesy filling, chock full of delicate crab, transforms the humble mushroom cap into something truly magical! At my house, every party leads into the kitchen, and there’s a freedom (and lack of shame) in grazing along the counter with one hand chip-digging into a bubbling dish of Hissy Fit Dip while the other clutches a refreshing cocktail. On special occasions, though, I like a more formal set-up, with cloth napkins and even [gasp] utensils. It’s fun sometimes to fuss over...

My sticky sweet and savory Honey Garlic Chicken will leave you licking your fingers and fighting your family for the coveted last piece. You may want to grab some extra napkins for this one,   There are two types of people in this world – those who cut everything on their plates with a knife and fork and those who make a mess of their napkins, diving into all the sticky, messy finger foods the way they were intended to be! If you fall into that finger-lickin’ category, you’re going to love my Honey Garlic Chicken. This is my own...
