Herby Lemon Vinaigrette

Herby Lemon Vinaigrette

This recipe isn’t exactly “new” to my site, but this fabulous Herby Lemon Vinaigrette really needs its own place to live. In the past, it’s been part of my Cold Tuna Salad with Green Beans but this dressing is so versatile, you might want to try it on different salads, maybe use it as a marinade and maybe even drizzle it over any simply cooked or grilled fish or chicken.

Ultimate Steak Nachos

Ultimate Steak Nachos

What makes these the Ultimate Steak Nachos and makes them better than any restaurant version out there? Two things really: They’re going to be piping hot and just perfect crunchy cheesy melty delish when you set them on the table and you get to put all your fave stuff on them! Beyond that, if you have peeps that want more of this or don’t like that, you can customize portions. Now that’s nachos for the win!

Coronavirus What to do Now (1st Week of May)

Hello, everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve checked in with anything having to do with the Coronavirus. For one, it’s been a little overwhelming. Maybe it is for you, too? I go in fits and starts with trying to wrap my head around everything. It’s a lot, no doubt. Lucky for me that over the years I’ve had some pretty good practice at dealing. All kinds of dealing. I’ll pass on a few tips, below, that have helped me. And I’m gonna talk about groceries! What’s safe, what isn’t, and what’s good practice these days in dealing with the groceries we bring into the house – from the experts!

 

 

I don’t think there is such a thing as an easy life. We all have struggles, we all cope in our own ways and we all handle anything thrown at us because the alternatives are worse. Maybe that’s where the saying that “God will never give us anything we can’t handle” comes from.

But how do you handle something as slippery as this virus? And a slippery thing. it is. While the virus itself might not change (we hope) the numbers, all the information, the science and how it’s interpreted (and maybe more importantly, how it’s misinterpreted), the politics, the bad decisions, the news, and oh, all the opinions are like a roiling ocean, deep, dark, churning. It’s an abyss.

German Baked Apples Bratapfel

German Baked Apples Bratapfel

German Baked Apples Bratapfel takes me right back to childhood! I don’t think at the time anyone thought of them as being particularly “German.” They were, like so many recipes that were ubiquitous to the Midwest, just a part of small-town, down-home cooking. Baked apples appeared a lot-at our table for dessert.
