Maple Bacon Whiskey Wings

6 Oct

Fall is here and there are so many things to be thankful for; cooler weather, comfort food and football season are just a few. Although I look forward to the crisp fall air and the stews and braises of the season, I can’t say that I am a big football fanatic. It’s a shame really, [...]

Spring Frittata

2 Jun

We are loving Summer break. Mornings are quieter, easier. I haven’t yelled at anybody before 7 AM all week! There is no race to find shoes, pack lunches, or get home before bedtime. There are no set times for breakfast, lunch or dinner. While, my husband and I certainly still have jobs to go to [...]

Spring Potato Salad

17 May

  “Simplicity” is the best advice I can give to those wanting to know how to create delicious food. Very often as humans we tend to over think things, making our lives much more difficult than they have to be. This can often be seen in the kitchen where we feel we must marinade, mince, [...]

Roasted Veggie and Lentil Salad

15 May

Dieting makes me angry. The moment you tell me I can’t have something then that is all my mind can think about. Every “diet” I have ever tried, read, or thought about really hard has taken something that I love to eat away. And everyone one of them ended with me shoving my face full [...]

Raspberry Salad

12 May

I realize that it has been many many months since I have posted any new recipes on this site. What can I say? Life is crazy! I have been cooking and writing though. You can find my recipes every week at DicksonHerald.com. I am going to try to post past articles here, too. Y’all enjoy [...]

Creamy Chicken Noodle

27 Sep

I think this year could be the year. We have been waiting for it for nearly 7 years now. It’s so exciting! It opens up so many doors for us! THIS could be the year that my kids will willingly eat soup. I know that it is probably abnormal for children to not like soup, [...]

Breakfast Muffins

10 Aug

We have been having quite a few adventures over here in the middle of the country. School has started back, my catering side business has been picking up and my husband has taken up the accordion. Yep…the accordion. I’ll just tell you right now it’s hilarious. So, what’s the first song he decided to learn [...]

Lemon Dill Shrimp Salad

7 Jul

I feel like we are on the cusp of something here and the excitement (and certain amount of fear) that new opportunities bring is not exactly a situation that I am used to. The last time I felt that we were on the cusp of something, that something was bankruptcy. This something is on the [...]

Summer Dill Potato Salad

7 Jun

  My husband and I have reached a new chapter in child rearing. We realized it while on vacation this past week. It came as an unexpected surprise and it made us maybe just a touch sad. We are no longer cool. It was bound to happen. I just didn’t expect it at 6. Here [...]

Shrimp Tacos with Jalapeno Slaw

28 Apr

Right now, in my mind, I am on vacation. I am not actually on vacation, I am somewhere towards the beginning of what will eventually turn into the busiest, most stressful, and exhausting month of my life. The month of May has now been dubbed Hell Month. Do you ever have one of those months? Where [...]

Yogurt Marinated Chicken

24 Mar

The first day of Spring has already passed but I can’t say that Mother Nature got the memo. It has been cold and wet and windy for what seems like forever. I’m sure that the rest of the country is with me when I say that I am more than ready for warm weather. I no [...]

Chickens and Eggs

18 Mar

  A few weeks ago I was looking back through some old posts and came across one about what I hoped to have one day (and stuffed artichokes which by the way are delicious and I should totally make this again soon). The very first line of that post is: “My dream is to one [...]

Chinese Lettuce Cups

21 Feb

My guilty pleasure is Asian cuisine. More specifically, Chinese takeout. Back when we lived in Atlanta, I kept the local Chinese restaurant very busy, especially after the twins were born. I ordered so often that the delivery guy began to comment on how big the kids were getting and would notice when I didn’t call [...]

Southwest Stuffed Peppers and A Return to Normal

7 Feb

Life should never be this crazy. Swirling towers of wind should never come out of the sky at 2:30 in the morning and leave you and your family huddling amongst the winter coats and wrapping paper. No one should ever have to walk outside to see the war-zone that is left in the wake of [...]

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

29 Jan

Some recipes are just universal. Everyone has their own version. Like marinara sauce or biscuits. Who knows who came up with the idea first, but everyone has been putting their own spin on these recipes for as long as I can remember. Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos are no different. Really, this recipe is more of a [...]
