Famous Dave’s Cornbread

The lightest, sweetest, fluffiest cornbread with a honey jalapeno glaze. To die for!

If you want an incredible, moist, fluffy cornbread, you’ve got to try Famous Dave Anderson’s recipe. He claims it’s even better than his corn muffins that are served at his Famous Dave’s restaurants. I agree!

Chorizo Polenta Bites

Spicy Mexica Chorizo tamed with a touch of melty cheese all piled on to the cutest little Polenta squares. That’s my kind of appetizer. Maybe yours, too! And look, there’s red & green for Christmas…

Sloppy Joe Casserole

I know I’ve said I don’t really “get” casseroles! Cook a bunch of good food, mix it together and recook it! But even I get how nice it is to pull a pan of hot, bubbly, and cheesy deliciousness out of the oven, plop it on the table and call “Dinner!” And this Sloppy Joe Casserole qualifies!

Orange Apricot Snack Cake

I’ve been going nuts over a Midwest Living magazine this summer and you’ll see more recipes inspired from them in the coming days and weeks. This recipe, Orange Apricot Snack Cake, was inspired by their Vanilla Orange Snack Cake and is so much more than it sounds!

Polenta Budino with Plum Marmellata

I could hardly believe my eyes as I turned the pages of this month’s Bon Appetit…and saw this recipe in the R.S.V.P. section. A dessert from the famed Babbo in NYC. Now, I don’t know about you, but I may never have a chance to eat at Babbo, but this? This dessert is easy to pull off.

Old Time Corn Pudding

I was introduced to Corn Pudding late in life, I’m afraid, which is a bit of a shame because this down-home side is scrumptious, easy and a really nice side for anything barbecued or grilled.

Arepas with Chicken Avocado Filling and Aji Salsa

I’ve been meaning to make Arepas forever, and when I saw an old Diner’s Drive In and Dives Gone Global rerun featuring these from La Caraquena I took it as a sign…and I’m glad I did. The combination of the still warm, fragrant Arepa with the cool, creamy, slightly tangy Chicken and Avocado filling is indescribable.
