Shredded Chicken (Pollo Mechado) Arepas

I’ve been on a little Arepa kick lately – I made these Shredded Chicken (Pollo Mechado) Arepas which were fabulous, then went on and revisited the other Arepas on my site, my Chicken Avocado Arepas. So of course, I needed to revise my post on how to make the actual Arepas, which are the little “buns”.

Easy Classic Chess Pie

Easy Classic Chess Pie

Did you know that National Pie Day is January 23rd? Yep, yesterday. Well, better late than never. I’m interrupting my normally scheduled programming (as if I have one beyond trying to give you one fun main dish every week) to post this Easy Classic Chess Pie. Honestly, I made it around Thanksgiving, or was it Christmas? But that doesn’t matter because this pie is excellent at any time of the year.

This is an oldie but a goodie, Corn Patch Corn Casserole. I was thumbing through my recipes when I came across it and I don’t think I’ve made it for over 30 years. I thought I’d resurrect¬†my recipe and try it again. See if my memories about how good this is are correct and all that.
