Juicy Lucyfer Slider

Juicy Lucyfer Sliders

I really have been in fun food mode, especially with Halloween coming up and fall here. See, in the summer most of us Minnesotans are out doing whatever we can to take advantage of the weather, but when fall comes we like to tuck in and party at home. Or at least I do! And especially if I have Juicy Lucyfer Sliders.

Easiest Supreme Sauce

Easiest Supreme Sauce

It wasn’t until I made my Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders the other day that I remembered how much I really do love the flavors of Chicken Cordon Bleu. And one of the things I love about Chicken Cordon Bleu is the sauce that’s traditionally served with it. It’s known as a Supreme Sauce, and it’s rich chickeny creamy deliciousness. I promised I’d post a recipe for you to go with those sliders, so here’s the Easiest Supreme Sauce.

The food! There’s just something about the fun party food that shows up around every football party, and these Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders are the perfect example of fun food.

Oven Baked Apple Chips

Oven Baked Apple Chips

You might think I’ve been living under a rock. I didn’t know about Oven Baked Apple Chips. Please tell me I’m not the only one? I thought that they were like the leathery, dehydrated apples and were just renamed as a gimmick. I thought, “What’s the big deal?”

Crispy Zucchini Fritters

Crispy Zucchini Fritters

I had a couple zucchini in my fridge. I know I bought them for something specific, but who knows what that was! I usually have a menu for what I plan to eat & make, but in typical fashion, lost the list. Oh, the joys of getting old! But that all might have been for the best because instead, I made Crispy Zucchini Fritters.

Homemade Cinnamon Sugar

Homemade Cinnamon Sugar

I usually don’t think much about cinnamon sugar, Usually, I just put a little cinnamon and a little sugar in a jar and shake it up. If it’s too strong, I add more sugar or not strong enough I add more cinnamon. It wasn’t until my son started asking me how to make it that I even gave Homemade Cinnamon Sugar any thought at all.

Shishito Peppers with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce

Have you tried Shishito Peppers yet? Have you heard of them? I hadn’t until my Step Sister Pam visited a while back and raved about them. I was determined to try them as soon as I was back in the Twin Cities but completely forgot until I saw them at Aldi, of all places. So I brought them home and made Shishito Peppers with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce.

Slow Cooker Zucchini Beef Soup

Slow Cooker Zucchini Beef Soup

Slow Cooker Zucchini Beef Soup has got to be the perfect end of summer soup, especially if you happen to have a garden still spitting out zucchini! Here in the Twin Cities, I’m still seeing a few on my neighbor’s plants. Me, I know better than to ever plant zucchini – the plants never stop and you’ll have zucchini out the ears, lol!

Healthier Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins

Healthier Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins

I’m trying to keep a little balance with the food I make, so I thought I’d give these Healthier Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins a shot. I always have the idea that if I’m gonna to eat something, I’m gonna eat the best, crazy, good and over the top of whatever it is, and just eat less of it. Well, that really doesn’t really seem to be working out for me that well.

American Fries From Leftover Potatoes

American Fries From Leftover Potatoes

My Mom used to make what she called American Fries. She’d pull out the electric skillet (so many things were made in that! Hello Porcupine Balls, I remember you…and not fondly, either) but we were happy to see that skillet it if it meant American Fries. Now me, I think the BEST American Fries are American Fries From Leftover Potatoes.

Autumn Almond Pear Granola

Fall. I’m not too excited about it this year. We’ve had days of heavy storm and rains and during one of the storms, a huge willow on the city’s property that butts up to my yard came down, taking about five of my good sized oaks with it. I’m looking forward to things clearing up and those coolish but still warm days when the sun is shining and the leaves crunch underfoot. And I’m looking forward to eating my Autumn Almond Pear Granola.

That Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe

That Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe

Not too long ago, I posted out the recipes I have on my site that were made with Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix. Or rather, my Homemade Onion Soup Mix recipe. There were quite a few more than I thought I had on my site, but there was one glaring omission. I’ve never posted it because it’s so easy, it’s hardly a recipe. It’s that Old Lipton Onion Soup Pot Roast Recipe from the 60’s.

Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower

Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower

I can’t think of any recipe I’ve made recently that’s given me as much angst as Mashed Cauliflower. See, I love cauliflower. Cooked almost anyway and raw, too. And I love my One Pot Mash in the Pan Instant Pot Cauliflower Rice. So when I started hearing about Mashed Cauliflower as a lower carb alternative to Mashed Potatoes I just knew I would love it! I jumped on it. And I hated it. It wasn’t until I started combining the Mashed Cauliflower with Parmesan cheese for Parmesan Mashed Cauliflower that I began to like it.

Specifically mashed potatoes and if I could bring my Instant Pot along, it would be these Perfect Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes.

I kept hoping September would be hot and I’d get to do a little more swimming in the lake, especially since I got some wild swim shoes or water shoes or whatever they’re called! I waited and waited for them and now it’s cool. There’s no denying fall is in the air, and right on time this year and I’m already thinking about pears and apples. In the meantime, though, I’m pulling out one last summer hurrah. I’m breaking out with this Strawberry Dream Cake.
