Boston Sausage Pepper Grinders

Boston Sausage Pepper Grinders

The Superbowl is coming right up! Now that’s a big deal in the U.S. for those reading from far-flung lands and it’s an event. We always had a great football team in my hometown, but I’m just not the fan I used to be. I gotta admit, I’m fan of the food, though, and the Superbowl is an excuse to hang out either in front of the TV or in the kitchen. Since the New England Patriots are playing this year, I’m making the Classic Boston Sausage Pepper Grinders.

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.

Eggs cooked over a savory, custard soaked bread layered over ham - and that ham has such crispy edges!.

This dish was a new one on me…Featherbed Eggs. I mean, how could you not fall in love with a name like that? It makes me think of country inns with crisp white sheets, quilt draped beds. Cotton curtains blowing in a warm breeze. Comfort.

Skillet Lasagna

Skillet Lasagna

Skillet Lasagne - easy meal with all the taste of a real deal lasagne

I think cooks must be divided into two camps when it comes to Lasagna. Those that toss it together with no problem (and yeah, I’m jealous of them) and those that think, “Yeah, it’s great, but it’s a production and the mess!” That’s me. Love Lasagne – hate making it. Raise your hand if you’re with me, here!

Balsamic Glazed Chicken Tomatoes

Balsamic Glazed Chicken, Tomatoes

As summer morphs into fall, it’s fun to make recipes that still take advantage of the abundance of tomatoes out there (yes, it’s me again – the tomato lady, lol!) but to give them a heartier twist. And when that twist includes easy boneless-chicken breast and a simple balsamic vinegar reduction? When that twist is Balsamic Glazed Chicken Tomatoes? Well, count me in.

Black Pelican Citrus Rosemary Brined Chicken

Black Pelican Citrus Rosemary Brined Chicken

I watched an episode of Diner’s Drive-Ins & Dives the other day, Land to Sea and they featured the Black Pelican Oceanfront Cafe in Kittyhawk, North Carolina. I was wowed by the Black Pelican Citrus Rosemary Brined Chicken with a Saute of Vegetables, and I couldn’t get it off my mind. Of course, I looked for the recipe and couldn’t help be bummed that it wasn’t one of the recipes given on the DDD website.

Skillet Roasted Lemon Chicken

Skillet Roasted Lemon Chicken

There’s one simple, no effort complete skillet meal I love beyond all others – that’s Skillet Roasted Lemon Chicken. The chicken always turns out beautifully, the flavors are amazing and the potatoes. Well, if you’re a follower, you might get already that I love me some potatoes, especially if they’re roasted, all soft in the center, lemony and garlicky and…forget that. Let’s be honest. I just love potatoes any way they’re cooked!

Ratatouille

Here’s the thing about Ratatouille – it’s originally a Provencal vegetable stew, and like any stew, just calls out for the personalized touch. Don’t like eggplant – who cares? Peppers aren’t your thing? Use something else. I think you’ll love this version, roughly adapted from Tyler Florence. We do.

Fried Rice Recipe

Fried Rice Recipe

I tried to make fried rice many times over the years; the first time I was in my early 20’s. When I think back on that now, I just about shudder! It was pretty horrible and since I love Fried Rice, I’d try now and then with a bit of improvement. Back then we didn’t have the internet and only a couple of TV shows, and you’d better be up early on Saturday morning to see them on PBS! And we didn’t have the Asian Grandmother, Patricia Tanumihardja. And I didn’t have this Fried Rice Recipe!
