Quick and easy white chili

Brrrrrr… Baby, it’s cold outside! And to me, cold weather equals soup weather. Although I could eat a different kind of soup every day during the winter and never tire of it, my husband is a bit more particular. He likes soup — but only certain soups. So, in looking for new recipes,

Back to the basics

Lasagna recipe is a family favorite Everybody knows how to make lasagna, right? Or, if you’re like me, you think you do. Mine tastes OK, but it generally comes out soupy and just not quite the way I think it should. I was searching through my recipe files recently, found

Sweet and Sour Hoppin’ John

Here is an updated and very lucky recipe for New Year’s Day. Traditionally, Hoppin’ John is eaten in the southern U.S. on New Year’s Day. The dish has rice, bacon and black-eyed peas. I have always felt that the dish is bland and unattractive, so I came up with this

Cheesy cauliflower chicken casserole

Winter weather is almost here. We love comfort food when it’s cold outside. It’s good to hunker down inside with a creamy, steamy, delicious casserole that just warms you up from the inside out. A few weeks ago, one of the ladies at our church asked if I would make

Pocatisa (Croatian Nut Roll)

I’ve been enjoying the “Great British Baking Show” lately. I am not generally a baker, but I have been inspired by some of the recipes from the show. The one for Povitica brought back so many memories. I was about 10 years old, biking with my special basket to Mrs.

Fudgy Zucchini Brownies

Tis the season…..for zucchini! We love it-raw, fried, roasted, grilled, zoodles, lasagna, zucchini bread, (bikini bread according to Emily, our granddaughter), and now my almost favorite — zucchini brownies! Who would have thought that this versatile green veggie would be involved in the most delectable fudgy desert? We generally plant

Chicken Alfredo

A semi-homemade favorite A few years ago, I used to watch a cooking show on Food Network called “Semi-Homemade.”  The program’s title described it well as the show’s hostess shared recipes and techniques using a variety of store-bought convenience items to easily create a “homemade”-type meal.

Fresh green bean salad

Garden season is in swing, and soon we’ll be able to access fresh produce from our gardens or local farmer’s markets. I can’t think of anything more tasty than red, ripe tomatoes and crisp, cool cucumbers on a hot summer evening. We normally plant a large garden, but this year

Extraordinary potato salad

This is a must for the summer celebrations and picnics. You will not resort to purchased potato salad again after you taste this. It is chunky, smoky, bright and tangy. I started with the family standard and added a few key ingredients. Because we live in the land of gorgeous
