Cheesy Potato Sausage Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

Cheesy Potato & Sausage Soup. OMG Soooo Good! Make it thick or thinner if you'd like, add more or less cheese. Try it with Ham!!

Oh, but I do love me some soup. Especially in the fall. And since I had some sausage left after making Smoked Sausage and White Bean Soup in the Instant Pot the other day, I thought I’d make more soup, but take it in another direction.

Instant Pot Pork Chop One Pot Meal

Instant Pot Pork Chops - the whole meal is cooked at once, then the potatoes mashed and the gravy made right in the instant pot.

I’ll tell you what, we went from a few lovely fall days to fall with a vengeance here in the Twin Cities. Windy, cold & blustery.

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans

Lemony Chicken with Green Beans - simple enough for every day; elegant enough for company! There are potatoes, too, making it a complete meal. Try it with artichokes in the spring!

A gorgeous dish, it really should have a fancy name…a little wine, lemon and a handful of sun-dried tomatoes spark up gorgeous green beans, chicken and a few potatoes. Fingerling potatoes or Yukons are perfect but a red potato makes a great budget stand in. And everything is napped with that bright sauce. Shhh…don’t tell anyone how simple this dish is and they’ll think you’re a genius.

German Potato Salad

German Potato Salad: Done in the style of Southern Germany with Bacon & Vinegar. This is based off an old family recipe handed down from Grandma!

If you’ve never had a really good German Potato Salad, you might think you might think you don’t care for it. I know this to be true because I’ve tried, from time to time, grocery store deli German Potato Salad. It doesn’t compare to what you can make at home.

Cà Ri Gà – Vietnamese Chicken Curry

Ca Ri Ga - a simple and stunning Vietnamese Curry. Downhome cooking at it's best! You'll want to sop it up with a baguette!

When we’re talking about Vietnamese cuisine in our family, my sis is all about the Pho. A few years back, I posted a phenomenal recipe for Pho Ga, Chicken Pho, just for her. Me, I’m all about the Cà Ri Gà. It’s a little harder to find in restaurants – and so a little harder to tame those cravings.

Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

Bacon Ranch Potato Salad - the flavor comes from dry Ranch mix, either home-made or store bought and it's fantastic!

I admit to being surprised that I liked this Bacon Ranch Potato Salad so much, and so did the folks. And I have my lil’ sis (who I no longer consider evil for suggesting such a salad knowing I’m not a Ranch fan) to thank.

I’m always looking for something fun  to do with my leftover Corned Beef. I know it’s always good the next day just as is, but we so seldom have Corned Beef I really like to do something special. These Corned Beef Fritters are it!
