It can be served as an appetizer or side, eaten alone or with tortilla chips, or used in tacos or burrito bowls. The serving size of 10… Continue reading Corn & Black Bean Salad

Buffalo Chicken Wontons

These were an experiment on Super Bowl Sunday. I made buffalo chicken dip, and I had a pack of wonton wrappers in the freezer that I'd been wanting to use. So why not fill the wonton wrappers with the dip and fry them? A couple of notes about this recipe: There was an air gap… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Wontons

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo chicken dip is one of my favorite things to make for a party. I have a few variations I make, including this one. I think this version I made is my favorite so far. I made it for the Super Bowl last weekend. My boyfriend isn't really into buffalo sauce, but he couldn't stop… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Dip

Italian Chicken & Spinach Dip

One of my friends hosted a potluck brunch last weekend. This was originally supposed to be a filling for crescent roll spirals similar to these buffalo chicken spirals I made before. That turned out to be a disaster. I spread the filling onto the crescent roll dough, rolled it up. and it didn't hold up… Continue reading Italian Chicken & Spinach Dip

Fried Green Tomatoes

I've been having some trouble with my lower oven, and I finally had a repair person out yesterday because I'm at the end of my troubleshooting abilities. Of course I could't get it to replicate the problem when the repair person was at my house. Last time it happened, I was cooking bacon in the… Continue reading Fried Green Tomatoes

Pimento Cheese

I love pimento cheese! We had pimento cheese sandwiches quite a bit as kids. Every time I see a dish with pimento cheese on a restaurant menu (fritters, burgers, dip, etc.), I'm probably going to order it. Most stores sell pimento cheese dip in the prepared food section, but I find it hard to find… Continue reading Pimento Cheese

Guacamole

I had a potluck with my horseback riding club on Friday. I made brownies to bring, but my bestie was leaving late from work and wasn't going to have something to bring... so I made guacamole for her to bring! I used my stand mixer for this because I don't own a molcajete anymore. The avocados… Continue reading Guacamole

Buffalo Chicken Dip

I first made this a couple of years ago, and it's probably the most requested thing for me to bring to parties (or serve as an appetizer when I'm having a party). It's really simple, but always a hit. If I'm taking it to a party, I will usually just wait to bake it until… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Dip

Pulled Pork BBQ Biscuit Sliders

Yesterday was a very cold day, and I wanted some comfort food. I didn't feel like chili, and I wanted another excuse to use my Le Creuset braiser. So, yes, the pork really isn't barbecued - it's braised and finished with a barbecue sauce. This is another recipe you could adapt to a dutch oven… Continue reading Pulled Pork BBQ Biscuit Sliders
