Refrigerator Bread & Butter Pickles

Yanno what I run hot and cold on? Pickles. Sometimes I just love them and can’t get enough and then sometimes I couldn’t care less about them. But I always get a little excited in the summer when those little pickling cucumbers start to show up. Coz then I can show off a bit and make my faves. Like these Refrigerator Bread & Butter Pickles.

Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes

Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes

On my site already is a recipe for Scalloped Potatoes Like Your Grandma Made. I love those and they are def a go-to at my house, especially after any holiday with ham (when I often sprinkle in both cheese and ham between the layers). But if you look at that post and get down to the comments and discussion,  you’ll see that these Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes also hit a nostalgic note, too. I know this recipe actually predates my “Grandma” potatoes, maybe by decades. Deb asked about these the other day, so I hope you’re following! Thanks to you, I was “forced” to eat two big helpings of this last night, lol!

While it’s still piping hot, run a knife around the edges and be sure to rest a few minutes before serving.

Julia Childs Berry Clafoutis

Julia Childs Berry Clafoutis

I have been having a love affair this year with…Julia Childs Berry Clafoutis. Maybe someday I’ll complete that sentence with news in the romance department but in the meantime, I’m not complaining a bit about settling with this simple, custardy fruit dessert. Clafoutis is kind of a cross between a cake and a pudding and it is everything, This year it’s a simple pleasure that’s been like a little salvation.

Spicy Thai Noodle Salad

I’m always getting great ideas from the grocery deli. I don’t necessarily buy, but def use them for inspiration. For me that’s almost better because not only can I usually make something similar at home, like this Spicy Thai Noodle Salad cheaper, I can customize to my taste and any dietary needs, too.

I thought maybe I’d toss out a “Grandma” recipe for you. One that’s perfect for summer especially if you have cucumbers coming in from your garden or constantly on sale at the store. Cucumber Sour Cream Salad is also so refreshing on a hot day and it’s just one of those little side dishes that are nice to have in the fridge.
