Cranberry Salad Recipe

 It’s pretty in pink! Cranberries are king in this fluffy, fruit-filled salad. It’s a colorful companion to any meal with the perfect balance of sweet and tart. I don’t really like suffering through television commercials when my favorite show is on, but I am always fascinated by those farmers standing waist-deep in a bog while plump little cranberries float around them. That wet harvesting process is pretty cool to watch, and it makes those beautiful red berries even more unusual and fun to cook with. Believe it or not, they actually don’t just come in cans suspended in gelatin, and...

Yeah, me too. There’s definitely a sense of accomplishment when you spend hours in the kitchen successfully tackling a long and complicated recipe, especially with something like a luscious lasagna or an eight-layer chocolate cake as a reward. Some weeks, though, are filled with extra appointments or kid’s soccer games or...

Chicken Alfredo

This super easy Chicken Alfredo is ultra creamy, rich, decadent and just may be the best pasta recipe ever! A good pasta recipe is an essential for every family cook. A warm, hearty pasta and chicken dish lovingly draped with rich, creamy sauce – red or white – is just about as good as authentic homemade food gets. I still remember sitting down to a plateful of my mother’s spaghetti when I was a kid. As an adult, I have tried a good number of pasta recipes. I have literally sampled dozens of different sauces: pesto, red sauce, and...
