Posole

[Skip to recipe] I shared my blog with some co-workers today and got called out for slacking! (You know who you are!) So since we’ll be on vacation over the next week, I’m going to take the time to de-slack and repost some older recipes […]

Ruth Bader Ginsberg

I don’t have words to describe how I feel about RBGs death at this particular time but this spoke to me. From a post on FB:—–There’s a few posts going around reminding folks that since RBG is Jewish, the proper thing to say about her […]

Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue Cheese Dressing

[Skip to recipe] I love blue cheese dressing but have always been disappointed in store bought varieties. Most of them have added sugar for some reason and are often too sweet for my taste. For a while you could buy the fresh made dressing from […]

Air Fryer Roasted Almonds

Air Fryer Roasted Almonds

This is a really quick and easy snack you can make in your air fryer in less than 10 minutes. Almonds are a big thing in my house. We usually buy a 5# bag of raw almonds from Costco a couple of times a month. […]

Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

Southwestern influenced cuisine has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I’m from Texas. My ex is from Colorado. His family is from Arizona. And I have family in New Mexico. So Tex-Mex, Arizona-Mex, New Mexico-Mex, or any variation […]

Irish Stew

Irish Stew

The weather has finally gotten cold enough to justify a big pot of my favorite Irish stew down here in Georgia. I don’t know where this recipe came from originally and it’s not really fixed in stone. It’s mostly about a rich, thick tomato based […]
