Leftover Cornbread Apple Stuffing Waffles

I decided to make a few of my recipes from last year’s complete holiday menu so that I could update some of the photos.  I made the cornbread stuffing with apples and the green bean casserole from that menu.  I also made a new recipe for apple cider brined roast turkey.  It ended up being a nice, Thanksgiving style meal.  And, typical [...]

Apple Cider Brined Roast Turkey

This months Recipe Redux theme is food memories for which we are thankful.  That’s fitting considering that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I can’t wait.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  Probably because my family goes all out for the Thanksgiving day feast. For my Redux recipe, I decided to make the star [...]

Strawberry Cheesecake Baked Oatmeal

I decided to come up with a few new holiday recipes this week.  Strawberry cheesecake baked oatmeal may not sound like traditional holiday food.  But, I figure this is the time of year when many people need to feed a crowd, even at breakfast time.  This recipe is perfect for that.  It makes a lot.  It’s filling.  And, It’s delicious. [...]

Blueberry Balsamic Glazed Salmon

I make a lot of salmon.  So, I’m always trying to come up with fun new ways to cook it.  For this dish, I decided to marry two things that I love, salmon and blueberries, to make blueberry balsamic glazed salmon. Blueberries are cooked down with balsamic vinegar, sugar, thyme, and lemon to make a potent glaze for [...]

One Pot Wonder Stuffed Pepper Skillet

Stuffed peppers are great.  I make them all the time.  But, depending on how you make them, they can be a bit tedious to prepare.  They often involve browning some meat, cooking some rice, stuffing the peppers, topping the peppers with cheese, then baking.  This one pot wonder stuffed pepper skillet has all the flavors [...]

Avocado Egg Salad

I love this avocado egg salad.  It gets its creaminess entirely from avocado.  There’s no need for mayo, sour cream, or yogurt.  The avocado creates the thick, creamy base all on its own.  So, its not only delicious, but extremely healthy since avocados are loaded with monounsaturated (healthy) fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Just mash an avocado with a [...]

Pecan Crusted Sweet Potato Fries

I’m a big fan of oven roasted potatoes, or oven fries.  Drizzling a little oil on some chopped up potatoes and roasting them at a high temperature creates a nice crunchy potato, similar to a French fry, but way healthier.  However, this only works with white potatoes, like russet, red skinned, etc.  Sweet potatoes don’t roast the same way.  The outside will brown [...]

Skinny Crock Pot Loaded Potato Soup

It’s been cold and dreary around here for the past few days.  I’m thinking a big bowl of loaded potato soup is in order to warm my spirits.  I love potato soup.  It’s thick, hearty, cheesy, and typically has chunks of salty bacon.  What’s not to love? Today I’m making my skinny crock pot loaded potato soup.  [...]

7 Layer Chicken Taco Dip

Well, it’s football season.  Personally, I’m not that in to sports.  I am, however, really in to the parties that go along with sports.  Any excuse to meet up with friends for drinks and appetizers is fine by me. Taco dip seems to be a staple at game day parties.  Everybody loves this Mexican inspired appetizer.  There are many different ways [...]
