It’s often said by “experts” in the field of nutrition that there are no “bad” foods, but I do have to wonder about Chicken Fried Steak – it just tastes so darned good! A huge fave of Child Number Two, Kraig, who has to have it when his birthday rolls around. I pull out the cast iron and go to town. Or maybe to country?
I was watching Ann Burrell the other day “The Best Thing I Ever Made,” a Food Network show – she turned out an Eggs Flameco that looked marvelous – that recipe, though, reminded me of another old favorite, and a much healthier one: Eggs Florentine.
Can we talk Tuna Noodle Casserole? Why? Because my blog tells me people are looking for it. Particularly Meta Givens Tuna Noodle Casserole Supreme.
I’ve been making Elegant Mushroom Lemon Basil Soup with Wild Rice for ages. Decades. Long before I even had kids. Way back when I was just figuring out how to expand my cooking skills beyond what my Mom taught me, I picked up one of those little paperback cookbooks near the grocery store check out stand. Do they still have those little cookbooks? I’ve become blind to everything stuck near the checkout stand, placed there to tempt you!
I truly do think the leftovers are the best part of any Holiday dinner, and here’s one of my favorite ways to use them. While traditionally made with turkey, Hot Browns are great made with either turkey or ham. As a matter of fact, when I make Hot Browns, I can usually count on an extra teenager or two hanging around until dinner is served. That’s ok with me – I’d rather have them at my house!
