Are you in North Carolina? Do you have the “best” cake recipe from your grandma? or baked goods? or folks say “you need to put that in a bottle and sell it?” Perhaps your home kitchen meets criteria for a home-based food permit. There ARE limitations. Read all about them here…
An outside-the-box way to enjoy summer corn… the kernels are like little bits of “candy,” yet are simply caramelized nuggets of a vegetable in this luscious ice cream! Who knew corn could be dessert too?
Growing up, I can never remember a time my Grandma didn’t have a dish of this in her refrigerator. She loved cruller doughnuts and hated waste, breaking up the stale ones into her Jell-O salad. This dish would shine at a summer picnic — don’t forget the Cool Whip!
What’s a southern picnic without fried chicken? Or chicken salad? I’ve combined the two and offer you these stuffed rolls to make and take with our time-saving tip. The salad can be a bit messy, and although you can serve on mini rolls as sliders, I like stuffing into top-split dog rolls so the goodness doesn’t fall out!
Each January, we look forward to the appearance of our annual treats … Girl Scout cookies! We all have our favorites, but their biggest seller remains the thin mint. Set aside a few to make this crispy, fudgy treat. During off season, substitute thin mint “grasshopper” cookies from your grocery store.
Remember when Chi-Chi’s introduced us to fried ice cream long ago. Simply scrumptious. Enjoy my version with a twist… no frying fried ice cream! The crispy cereal is crunchy like fried without all that… and a banana pudding version on a puddle of dulce de leche… just because!
This vibrant fresh salad is a nice side with a pot of soup on a chilly winter’s day. You might want to double up on the tasty dressing… it keeps well refrigerated for several weeks. It’s quick to make but if you have a favorite, you can easily substitute that as well.
Few things are as delicious as a bowl of flavorful French Onion Soup… topped with the cheesiest toasted bread. I thought the world needs a new variation… and hope you will make this rotisserie chicken version… perfect for when you’ll be nestled at home on a cold day this winter.
Little bags of clementines appear in stores come fall and winter — an early sign that the holiday season is upon us. Some remember having them tucked into our stockings with nuts and other fruits back in simpler times. If you like something not quite as sweet as most, you’ll enjoy this shortbread. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Do you want to “WoW” your family and guests with a sweet treat that is sure to please? If you’ve never made these quick and oh-so-easy doughnuts, the time has come. They can be “dressed” in a variety of ways for any occasion… including with fun sprinkles.
