Do you know what my favorite breakfast in the whole world is? Hint: Classic Eggs Benedict. Ok, so I just straight up told ya. That’s because I don’t like to mess around in the morning. Just gimme my Eggs Benedict and I’m happy. And don’t talk to me.
If there is ever a show stopper of a dessert that’s really just a big, easy “cheat” it’s got to be Pavlova. And this White Balsamic Strawberry Pavlova is a perfect ending for a summer party.
It seems I’m all about the summer party recipes, lately, not my typical everyday fare! (See the explanation marks? That proves it!) And this Loaded Baked Potato Salad is definitely one. Heck, it’s a party in a bowl.
So over the long weekend, temps way up in the 90’s (oh why is the weather so craaaazy this year?) I somehow got the idea that I wanted some of that Old Fashioned Tuna Macaroni Salad. You know the one I mean, all cool, creamy deliciousness with a few crunchy veggies and that tuna that somehow melds in and makes everything so rich.
When I was at my daughter’s not too long ago, I completely forgot how to boil an egg. And then this week, the same. I swear I’ve lost my memory and can’t find it. But you see, I’ve been making most of my hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot lately and since I hate googling up recipes I’d thought I’d post the Best Basic Hard Boiled Eggs right here. Just in case anyone else needs it!
There isn’t really anything that signals summer’s beginning more than Rhubarb. I’m just crazy about it ever since I was a kid and we’d sit under the honeysuckle bushes dipping stalks of rhubarb into our blue melamine sugar bowl. And I’m even crazier about this Two Layer Rhubarb Custard Pie.
It took me awhile to “crack” the code on sheet pan eggs, but here they are: The Best Creamy Sheet Pan Eggs. They are perfect for a no-fuss morning, great for make-ahead meal prep and marvelous in a breakfast sandwich.
If you follow me, by now you’ve probably noticed I have a passion for Mexican food. And maybe you do, too? So when I started thinking about Cinco de Mayo coming up and Mother’s day right after, I couldn’t help but think of the classic Huevos Rancheros. Make that Huevos Rancheros! With an explanation mark!
I don’t know if Egg & Rice Breakfast Skillet is so much of a recipe as it is a method. It’s the perfect way of dealing with a little leftover rice or rice dish. Egg & Rice Breakfast Skillet works with just about any rice dish you might have.
If you follow me (and if you don’t, please do!) you know I posted about my Dozen Hard-Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot the other day. So now I’m making lots & lots of egg stuff. I love my Egg Salad and my Classic Deviled Eggs but needed a changeup, so I hatched up (ahem!) the idea for these Deviled Eggs with Bacon & Smoked Paprika.
Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot are possibly the best hard-boiled eggs, ever. If done right. Right is tender, not rubbery, whites & yolks just cooked through with no hint of green. Last week, I wanted to make a dozen instant pot hard boiled eggs that would be perfect for Easter dying or deviled eggs. How hard could that be?
If you are looking for a quick, easy and comforting skillet breakfast (that’s just as good for brinner) think of Eggs Poached in Rancheros Sauce. Cozy enough for the family & just fun enough for guests, this recipe has just enough spice to keeps things interesting.
I do love me some quiche, how about you? It’s been a long time since I’ve made Quiche. I’ve been all about the Frittatas lately. I think I had just forgotten how good Quiche can be.
You know what I like, and I hope you do, too, since I’m posting one? Frittatas. And I like them for so many reasons. They’re delicious and the frugal me loves that frittatas are a great way to use a bit of this and a bit of that. And the healthy me loves that anything can go in a frittata.
Do you need a fun, fresh take on a dish for your Holiday Ham leftovers? Something easy, fast and crave-worthy? You’re gonna want to try this Hawaiian Fried Rice. And you’re gonna look like a genius when you bring this to the table! 🙂
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.
Do you love Deviled Eggs? Me too. See I just love them so much I assume everyone does! So when I realized I’ve been blogging for so long and never posted my Classic Deviled Eggs, well I had to get “cracking.” (I’m so sorry for that!! Couldn’t help myself!)
Awhile back, I declared, after eating the delightful Blackberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles that I made, that this might be the year of the popsicle. Well, I haven’t made one since. But I noticed I’ve been making an awful lot of pancakes; it just snuck up on me. So maybe this is the year of the pancake, instead.
So are you guys morning people? Not me. Nope. Not ever. But I love breakfast and brunch dishes any time of day. Here’s a great little Asparagus Chive Frittata Instant Pot Recipe that’s easy enough to make any time. (Even if you’re only half awake!)
Here’s a super simple little breakfast casserole that is perfect even for the pickiest of eaters. Delicious just as is, full of cheese & Sausage or Ham, I often like to tinker!
Soft, billowy, beautiful dinner rolls are always welcome for a special occasion, and especially during Thanksgiving & Christmas. Here’s a recipe that takes the dinner roll to the next level – these are rolls that will make you and your guests sit up and take notice.
When the idea of a Ramen from my leftover Thanksgiving turkey entered my mind, I couldn’t let it go! Here’s a ramen with a gorgeous broth, beautiful flavor and lots of fun garnishes.
If you’ve been following along (Do I sound like a teacher? Class?) you’ve probably seen my most marvelous recipe for Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos last week. If you haven’t, take a peek, because that recipe is the starter for this Shortcut Pork Ramen. And as good as those tacos were, this spin-off recipe is even better.
French Silk Pie! The End. Seriously, that should be all that needs to be said. Just say French Silk Pie and most people will come running! This has got to be my son’s very favorite pie of all time…and I have a hard time turning down a piece, too. Rich, chocolate, creamy and airy deliciousness.
On an earlier post, the one on Almond Praline, I spoke of a master plan to make ahead components of a showstopper of a dessert, Roasted Pears with Lemon Cream and Maple Caramel Syrup. This gorgeous, tart, sunny lemon curd is just one component but also stands on its own as a fantastic recipe.
Since my very first taste, too many years ago to admit, I’ve been wild about Hot & Sour Soup. I think I order it whenever it’s available on a menu and it’s always exciting for me to sit at the table of a new restaurant, just waiting for their Hot & Sour Soup (which is always my first course) wondering what theirs will be like.
I was at a picnic not too long ago and someone had brought this old-fashioned salad along. You wouldn’t believe how fast it went. Sometimes these simple, old-fashioned recipes really hit the spot; they’re almost a welcome relief! Of course, I had to show it to my to my son and his girlfriend. It’s a great little recipe to have on a hot summer’s day for home or to bring somewhere.
