Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

My family enjoys asparagus but it is quite pricey around here so I don’t purchase it very often.  However, a friend of the family had an over abundance of green beans in their garden and said we were welcomed to come and pick all we wanted.  Since I love baked green beans with sea salt […]

Braised Beef Tips

I have been making what I called “braised beef tips” for years using the most basic of ingredients thrown into a crock pot and cooked all day.  What I produced was flavorful dish that pleased the family but wasn’t really “braised” in the true sense.  I decided to do a little research and learn exactly […]

Pork Schnitzel with Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

I’ve been making this easy pork schnitzel recipe for the last 7 or 8 years. Hubs is of German descent and my father-in-law especially appreciates it when I make it during one of his visits. I’ve only been able to find all of the ingredients in one place at Publix. They always have cubed pork […]

Orange Curried Chicken with Citrus Rice

Chicken is so versatile and affordable, it’s no wonder it makes it onto the dinner table so often. I serve it as often as the next mom, but like to mix things up a little bit with creative recipes that make my family think “winner, winner chicken dinner!” instead of “chicken again?” Sunkist sent me some of […]

Fried Tomato BLT

I’ve been wanting to make a Fried Green Tomato BLT for some time, but it’s difficult to find green tomatoes when they aren’t in season. Right now my gardener friends only have blooms on their plants, and the tomatoes sold in local stores are all ripe. Wondering if it was possible to fry a red […]
