Greek Chicken Salad Sandwiches

This is a fun little Chicken Salad recipe with a few Greek twists! Full of lean chicken, a lightened dressing and crunchy vegetables, this is a great recipe for early spring through summer. I like to serve these in a Pita, just for fun.

Easy Refrigerator Pickled Asparagus

Pickling vegetables, almost any vegetable, is a simple process, and Asparagus is no exception. A jar or two for the refrigerator can be made in literally minutes, no “canning” or “processing” required! If you can boil water, you can make these fantastic little pickled Asparagus. It’s that simple.

Home-made Tortilla Chips

Warm, crispy, crunchy, salty, fragrant – there’s nothing like a home-made tortilla chip. Pair them with a great Salsa and the result is heavenly! You can buy chips but there is no way you’re going to get anywhere near the taste you’ll get if you just brave the mess and fry up a few of your own.

Health Nut Avocado Sandwiches

Way back in the late 70’s I fell in love and lived in the quaint little town in the Colorado Rockies, Georgetown. Young and single with a new adventure every day, I really did have the time of my life. Hiking, backpacking and biking all summer, skiing all winter, I could pretty much eat anything I wanted, and I often wanted these delicious sandwiches! Healthy, fresh, filling and best of all, cheap!

Cheesy Bacon Foil Potatoes, Baked or Grilled

I’m always looking for simple recipes to teach my son and his girlfriend and dredged up these easy, cheesy bacon foil-baked potatoes. My Mom made these all through the 70’s for us kids, and I made them often enough for mine! It seems I’ve gotten away from them in recent years, but that first familiar bite! Oh, yeah!

Cubano (Cuban) Sandwiches

The Cuban sandwich – such a classic and so American, from what I understand! And like many classics, the Cubano sandwich sparks heated debate. There are those who say the bread makes the sandwich and it’s impossible to have a great one outside of Miami  – I disagree. I think you will, too, after your first bite of this one!

Lechon Asado, Cuban Roast Pork . $17.85

Can you believe we have snow, in Minnesota, in April. Really, our weather has been unpredictable with a few days in the 70’s but mostly just cold and dreary. Never mind, though, because I’ve gone to Miami, in my mind, at least. Here’s a glorious dish: Lechon Asado, Cuban Pork Roast. This is the one normally made with blood orange and a ton of garlic. It’s the perfect pick me up.
