Sausage dressing is a staple at Southern tables, and not just around the holidays. I’ve used this recipe (or variations of it) to stuff Turkey, chicken, cornish hens, pork chops, and bell peppers.… Read the rest
Everyone has their go-to Chinese takeout favorite. For my wife, it’s cashew chicken. For my son, lemon chicken with fried rice and plenty of soy sauce does the trick. But for me, it’s broccoli beef every time. I’ve got to have it.
But I’ve noticed that since we started exploring Japanese foods, the broccoli beef from our local takeout places just seems too heavy.… Read the rest
Rice. It’s an unassuming grain that also just happens to be the staple food of nations all over the world. It’s speculated that rice may have been cultivated in Japan for as long as 6,000 years.… Read the rest
A few weeks ago I was flittering around Pinterest and I stumbled on a pin for sausage balls. If you can believe this, I’d never heard of them. Not once. Ever.
I showed the picture to my wife, who has heard of these little gems. She immediately launched into tales about how her Grandmother used to make sausage cheese balls for her all the time, how much she loved them as a kid, and how much she missed them.… Read the rest

It can be tough to get the family around the table. Family schedules are all over the place,. Everyone, including the kids, have stuff to do and places to be, and the thought of another grab-and-go meal is definitely sounding tired.
But seriously, having a homemade meal shouldn’t be a chore.… Read the rest
This is definitely a case of cooking by the seat of my pants. I was thinking about flavor combinations the other day while snacking on leftover pork roast with caramelized apples when before I knew it, I was making pork & apple empanadas.
I don’t know of too many flavors that go together like pork and apple (trust me, I’ve used this combination a lot, like in my Apple Bourbon Glazed Pork.), and that’s what gave me the seedling of an idea that grew into a profound need to make this dish.… Read the rest

It’s winter time again, folks. And while some might be bemoaning the loss of all of the summers’ vegetable crops, my family is going crazy over the wealth of fresh picked winter squash and sweet potatoes available at our local Walmart.… Read the rest
We love Holiday leftovers. Not just a little. In all honesty, we’ve been known to buy two, and even three turkeys around Thanksgiving and Christmas just so we can have more leftovers. (It’s a sickness.… Read the rest
Like most families, we saw each other mostly on holidays, and the order of the day was, of course, the food. Roast turkey in particular, with homemade cornbread stuffing (or cornbread dressing, if that’s what you want to call it.), though there would of course be all kinds of other dishes and desserts.… Read the rest

Who doesn’t love a good, old-fashioned grilled cheese sandwich? They’re one of my happiest childhood memories. But sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes I need that sandwich to be a whole meal that can be enjoyed either at the table with my family, or on the run if I’ve got somewhere to be.… Read the rest

I’m a big fan of having fun at breakfast. Especially on the weekends when the whole family has a chance to sit down together and enjoy the morning. It gives us time to reconnect, so it might as well be enjoyable.… Read the rest
If I have one truly guilty fast food pleasure, it’s hash browns. You know…the deep fried kind. Crisp and crunchy on the outside, but pillowy soft on the inside. I’ll take those over a breakfast sandwich any day. (Or at least get a double order.)
Usually to make this kind of hash brown at home, I’d buy the frozen hash brown patties at the MegaMart and fry them up myself.… Read the rest

I don’t know about your house, but in ours, we try to shave as many dollars off the grocery bill as we can each month. Quite often, that means cutting more expensive proteins like beef, pork, lamb, and fish out of the budget.… Read the rest
