Granny’s Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

I was talking to my mom about the menu for my party this weekend, and she suggested I make my grandmother's cucumber sandwiches. She went on and on about how great they are. Unfortunately, I don't remember Granny ever making these for me, so I had to take my mom's word for it (and thankfully… Continue reading Granny’s Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

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.

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

No-Name Southwestern/Tex-Mex Dip That Does Not Photograph Well

One of the struggles of being a food blogger is having to get good photos of the things I make. Nobody is going to want to try a recipe if the dish looks gross in the photos! Sometimes, though, I either forget to take a picture, or even worse, something is horribly un-photogenic. I had… Continue reading No-Name Southwestern/Tex-Mex Dip That Does Not Photograph Well

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!
