Homemade Whole Milk Ricotta

Homemade Whole Milk Ricotta

Two things I love. I love tinkering in the kitchen and I love to use that tinkering to get me a little sumpin’ sumpin’ now and then that might not normally fit into my budget. And when that homemade version blows away the commercial product, especially when it’s a minimum of work and mess, I’m all over it. That’s the case with this Homemade Whole Milk Ricotta.

Louisiana Sensation Salad Dressing

Louisiana Sensation Salad Dressing

I always have my eye out for recipes that might be just a little offbeat (hey I’m not Betty Crocker) especially ones that can be adapted to my Minnesota kitchen. I figure if I can make something here, with grocery stores that are full of ingredients catering to our Midwestern sensibility (although they’re getting better) then you can probably make it wherever you are. I hope, anyway! And while this regional specialty, Louisiana Sensation Salad Dressing is a little off-beat, you shouldn’t have any issues with finding these ingredients!

New York Chicken Spiedies

New York Chicken Spiedies

So raise your hand if you’d like a Spiedie, maybe my New York Chicken Spiedies. If these are new to you, Spiedies are chunks of highly marinated meat, in this case, chicken, skewered and grilled to perfection, then served on a fresh, soft roll; it has to be soft, nothing too fancy. And then drizzled with the same garlicky herby vinaigrette it was marinated in, not just because that gives it a double dose of flavor, but because it also kind of melds that gorgeous, juicy grilled chicken and the bun into one cohesive sandwich.

Classic Potato Salad Instant Pot or Not

When I was younger, I wasn’t a huge potato salad fan. Even my Mom’s, and she went the whole route with homemade mayonnaise and everything. But I appreciate it more, now, and I especially appreciate it when its a lot easier than Mom’s. And I appreciate it when it’s this creamy, Classic Potato Salad, Instant Pot or Not.
