Rosemary & Mozzarella Corn Muffins

My riding club had a horse show a few weeks ago. Several chapters of the club get together for the show, and we usually have a chili potluck lunch. I signed up to bring a crock pot of chili and some cornbread. I was scrambling to get everything together for the show (for me and… Continue reading Rosemary & Mozzarella Corn Muffins

Chicken Noodle Soup

I came down with a bad cold a few weeks ago, and thankfully it only lasted for a few days. My wonderful boyfriend made me tea with lemon, honey, and whiskey, which I swear is better than any cough syrup out there. Being sick of course also called for chicken noodle soup. This also reheated… Continue reading Chicken Noodle Soup

Oven Roasted Herb Potatoes

I was going to make these on the grill, but didn't really plan properly to allow them enough time to start cooking ahead of everything else, so in the oven they went. We had these with grilled strip steak and grilled asparagus. I used the leftovers for breakfast potatoes - just added some onion and… Continue reading Oven Roasted Herb Potatoes

Southern Deviled Egg Potato Salad

This recipe combines two of my favorite foods - deviled eggs and potato salad! I brought this to my horseback riding club's monthly potluck last night, and there was hardly any left. The dressing is creamy and tangy, and the ingredients provide a nice contrast of textures. The dressing uses mayo, but I'd also really… Continue reading Southern Deviled Egg Potato Salad

My boyfriend went on a fishing trip last weekend and caught a ton of Mahi Mahi. I made this mango salsa to go with some of the grilled fish. Later in the week, I used it on tempura Mahi Mahi sushi. It's also a good snack with tortilla chips. You could also put avocado in it,… Continue reading Mango Salsa

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

Grandma’s German Potato Salad

This German potato salad has been my favorite since I was a child. Every time we'd go visit my grandmother, I was hoping for this, goulash, and her chicken and dumpling soup. Even if we were going for a day trip, we'd constantly be eating. I think she's the reason I love cooking for people… Continue reading Grandma’s German Potato Salad

Chipotle Lime Fajitas

I was having some friends over for dinner, but didn't have much time after getting home. I had a bell pepper that needed to be used, shrimp in the freezer, and there was skirt steak on sale at Wegmans. The marinade was super easy, and the meat didn't need to marinate for very long. The… Continue reading Chipotle Lime Fajitas
