When it comes to the pig, I can admit to being a big fan. Bacon, sausage, and ham are just a few of my favorite food groups *wink*. In my opinion, you can never have too many ham recipes. This packs a big punch for such a small recipe.
This became one of my favorite ways to serve ham with the very first bite. Although I prefer a large ham for Christmas and Easter, it makes for a nice Sunday dinner without the fuss.
Peperonata is an Italian mixture of sweet peppers, onions and garlic cooked in olive oil. Combined with grilled chicken on a crusty roll, it is a delicious sandwich that can be served for lunch or dinner.
Beef Stroganoff: Mouthwatering, delicious, tasty… just a few words to describe this flavorful recipe. Don’t be surprised if there are no left-overs! The recipe is easy to make and there are several variations that could be done.
I have found that there are certain foods, spices, herbs, etc. that are REALLY important for cooking a well-rounded menu. If you are a novice to cooking or just starting out on your own, this list can help you get started.
I had some cube steak in the freezer which I normally turn into Country Fried Steak. Unfortunately, that dish doesn’t quite fit into the new diet. Oh, I won’t give up my tasty favorite dish but for now, it will have to wait.
So, what to do with my cube steak? After poking around the internet, I came up with Swiss steak. This was a dish I knew my hubby would love. I didn’t however, feel like jumping through all the steps of standard Swiss steak. Let’s just say, I’ve “dummied down” the recipes I found!
If you want Swiss steak but are short on time, I think you’ll enjoy this recipe.
One of my favorite desserts growing up was my Mom’s Apple Crisp. When I married my husband he fell in love with it too. It’s sweet with a hint of tart.
This Apple Crisp does not have oats in it, which is one of the reasons I like it. I enjoy a hot steaming bowl of oatmeal and a nice struesel on a Dutch Apple Pie but I prefer my Crisp like this.
My grandparents proudly owned an apple orchard in Washington state. We lived next door until I was 7, so I was surrounded by apples. I spent many days following behind my grandpa while he did his work. I learned about smudge pots and frost warnings before I could tie my shoes. It was a huge place full of mysteries and many places to hide.
This is one of my favorite dinners. If I start to think about it.. I HAVE to HAVE it. Even my picky teen-ager loves it. Serve it with Mexican/Spanish rice and re-fried beans. It couldn’t be any easier to make. You can make it as spicy as you wish and it’s cinch to add ingredients to it.
