Shishito Peppers with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce

Shishito Peppers with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce

Have you tried Shishito Peppers yet? Have you heard of them? I hadn’t until my Step Sister Pam visited a while back and raved about them. I was determined to try them as soon as I was back in the Twin Cities but completely forgot until I saw them at Aldi, of all places. So I brought them home and made Shishito Peppers with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce.

Southwestern Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwich

Southwestern Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwich

I’ve made a few versions of smashed chickpea avocado sandwiches. It’s been a try this with the recipe, try that with the recipe, using whatever’s at hand. I haven’t come up with an actual “recipe” that I wanted to share, though, until I hit upon a combination of Southwestern flavors. So here’s my Southwestern Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwich.

Zhoug, Zhug, Skhug - Spicy Herb Sauce

Zhoug, Zhug, Skhug – Spicy Herb Sauce

I made my Zhoug, Zhug, Skhug – Spicy Herb Sauce for the first time last week, and made it again the next day! Because of all the condiments that I served with my Home Style Chicken Shawarma, the Zhoug, Zhug, Skhug – Spicy Herb Sauce was my favorite. I don’t normally post multiple times in one day, but I don’t want you to have to wait days for the sauces that go with that Chicken Shawarma!

Corn Patch Corn Casserole

Corn Patch Corn Casserole

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.

Rick Bayless Brick Red Mole over Shredded Beef Barbacoa Enchiladas

Rick Bayless Brick Red Mole & Beef Enchiladas

Cinco de Mayo is almost upon us, the day that commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over the French near the city of Puebla on 5 May 1862. In the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate Mexican culture. If you know me, you gotta know that I’m down with that & I hardly need any excuse to whip up some Mexican food. I thought I’d celebrate the day with Rick Bayless Brick Red Mole napped over Shredded Barbacoa Beef Enchiladas.

Individual Mexican Meatloaf: fast, easy & fun! Lots of flavor & perfect for family. https://frugalhausfrau.com/

Meatloaf is a huge favorite with my folks. And with just about everyone, I think, once fall hits. But who has time to wait for a meatloaf to bake when there’s a zillion things going on?

Mexican Meatloaf – flavorful but not too hot – but that sauce is another matter! It’s spicy, tangy deliciousness!

Thai Chicken Burgers

Thai Chicken Burgers

I’m sitting in what seems to be the red meat capital of the world, folks. Right smack dab in the Midwest. At my folk’s in a small town outside of Sioux Falls. (We even went to see bull riding last winter!) So it might be considered a bit of a stretch to serve my fave octogenarians a chicken burger. And Thai Chicken Burgers, no less!

Candied or Sweet & Hot Pickled Jalapenos

Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Pickled Peppers

Sweet & Hot Pickled Jalapenos - easy and no processing needed!

I love summer when the living is easy…gardening, grilling and maybe even a little light canning. I’m not about putting up quarts of tomatoes (although you should see how many plants we put in, lol!) but I do tinker with small batches of something special. Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Jalapenos fit the bill & bonus…they go right in the fridge and don’t have to be “processed.”
