Beef and Noodles

Beef and Noodles is the ultimate comfort food! This is an old family recipe that will take you right back to your Grandma’s kitchen table! Sometimes simple, humble, old fashioned food is the best. I love making old fashioned recipes for my family– the kind that ooze nostalgia; the kind that Grandma absolutely, positively used to make. I put lots of those recipes up on this blog: American Goulash, Vegetable Beef Soup, Crockpot Beef Stew, and Southern Style Green Beans . These recipes have stuck around and been passed down from generation to generation. They’re classic, and have long since...

Feta Artichoke Dip

Here’s a new spin on a perennial favorite! Who doesn’t LOVE artichoke dip? Well, this artichoke dip is a totally different kettle of fish! It has a lot of the same ingredients as the original with the addition of a few others. The new star of the recipe is Feta cheese. It gives the dip a totally different flavor. I’ve served this at many parties and everyone loves it and always asks for the recipe. It’s super easy to make, really quick to mix together, and delicious…….as Ina says, “What’s not to love?!” Source:This recipe is from my wonderful girlfriend Mary...

Ancho Maple Black Beans

I have a thing for beans. I think it’s cuz one of the only things my dad ever made for dinner, when I was growing up, was beanies and winnies. He didn’t make dinner often. And clearly, he wasn’t much of a cook! But he was always kinda excited about the whole thing when he did have to feed us. My mom was the cook in the family! Anyhoo, like I said, I have a thing for beans. They’re one of my favorite side dishes. Here’s a recipe for Ancho Maple Black Beans that really knocked my sock off!...

Lemon and Garlic Pasta

Oh man this is one delicious pasta!  I can’t even begin to tell you how quickly this pasta is gobbled up when it’s served at my house. It has everything going for it. Carbs, olive oil, lemon and garlic.  I mean YUMMMM!  Serious…YUM! I’m not sure where this recipe originated from.  It came to my table via my dear friend Craig. This is even more delish if you make the sauce ahead of time (a couple hours) and just let it sit covered at room temp.  More Pasta’s Like This! Creamy Artichoke and Creamy Pasta – Refreshing light sauce...

Hye Rollers

I have a little confession to make. I LOVE this little rolled sandwiches. I know! I know! They are soooo fifteen minutes ago. What can I say. The are totally not chic these days but I don’t care. I know you can buy them premade just about everywhere, even Costco. But make no mistake my friends. Those premade versions really don’t measure up to these in the YUM category. Give them a try next time your having friends over to watch football or are going on a family picnic. They’re easy to transport and one bite I think you’ll be just...
