Happy St. Paddy’s Day!! I’ve actually been cooking Irish recipes all week, but the standout is these potato nachos, in the style of McMullen’s Pub. So there’s the name: McMullan’s Irish Nachos. These are crispy, crunchy homemade potato chips loaded with cheese, crisped corned beef or other protein, and pickled jalapenos. And sour cream, if you don’t forget to add it like I did before I took pics!
Would you guys kill me if I give you yet another Caramelized Onion Dip? Already, I have a Skinny Caramelized Onion Dip, Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip and Caramelized Onion and Bacon Dip. But just one more, this Classic French Onion Dip for New Year’s…then we can all to through several weeks of “Hell-thy.”
Merry Christmas, everyone! Here it is, Christmas Eve day, and I thought I’d show you one of my favorite Christmas Eve dinners, this time done in the Instant Pot. Chili. I know, strange to some, as a Christmas Eve dinner.
Maybe the world doesn’t need another post on “Mexican Street Corn” or what is really our American version based off of the classic “Elotes.” I do, though – or I’m hitting up sites when I’m making dinner, trying to find the particulars. You’d think I’d be able to remember grill 8 to 10 minutes, lol!
We seem to be having Cinco de Mayo week rather than just a day here at the Frugal household! Really, the three previous posts are all leading up to this very special recipe, Bob Armstrong’s Chile con Queso. What can I say? This is a masterpiece. I wish I could have gotten this recipe to you before the holiday, but make it anytime or pin it for later!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is often thought of as the day we celebrate our sweetheart. Flowers, chocolate, cards and cupcakes are all appropriate. Yeah, see how I worked that Cupcake in? Slick, huh? In my defense, this is a Raspberry Filled Cupcake topped with Carlee’s White Chocolate Buttercream. It’s not to be missed.
Did you grow up with this dip made from Lipton’s Onion Soup and Sour Cream? I did, and we considered it a real treat at our house. Served, of course, with Lay’s Potato Chips, the ridged ones. Or maybe it WAS Ruffles, as Kathryn pointed out in her comment. I don’t think Lay’s Wavy were out way back when in the ’60’s!
I love that Quick Breads just seem to scream “good home cooking” don’t you? They’re great for all kinds of occasions: when company is dropping by, for brunch, or maybe to take to the office or to a family who needs a bit of a boost. This would make anyone feel better, at least while they’re eating it!
Have I ever told you I’m nuts about Rhubarb? Ever since I was little – we kids used to take the old blue melamine sugar bowl (this is before we got the Corelle) and sit in the shade of our honeysuckle hedge and pull rhubarb, dip it in the sugar and take a bite. And repeat. Sweet & sour.
When an opportunity to party rolls around, I like to pull out all the stops, don’t you? I’ll be finding opportunities to make this Smoky Jalapeno Bacon Dip. It’s positively addictive, all smoky bacon flavor spiked with the hot peppers and just a touch of vinegar for a subtle tang.
Who has leftover steak, anyway? Certainly not at my house where steak is a bit of a rarity, but at my folks? Yeah. Quite frequently. A love of beef (they live in ranching country) and smaller appetites often lead to a bit of steak that could easily languish in the fridge.
