Macaroni and Cheese Donuts

Take a cheese! When my son was 3 yrs old he picked up his Mom Mom's camera and said "take a cheese". Lol! Evidently we used the old 'Say cheese' photo-op moments often. Moving on to the cheesy business... I made something really good but really bad. Stirred up some homemade macaroni n' cheese... as… Continue reading Macaroni and Cheese Donuts

Barbecue Country Style Short Ribs

 It's barbecue time! Thanks to the inventor of slow cookers, the results are always fall off the bone deliciousness.  Country style ribs are really meaty, tasty and no nibbling off the bone.

Go to work, run errands, play with the kids, your fur babies, exercise, go brunching or whatever your heart desires.

I love a side of good coleslaw with seafood, ham, burgers, ribs (anything barbecue) and Thanksgiving dinner. For our family, Grandmom's slaw became a holiday… Continue reading Creamy Cole Slaw

Smokey Gouda Mac n’ Cheese

Cheese...yes please! Smoked gouda might just be my new favorite. A creamy texture and hickory flavor that melts beautifully. I've made the same 5 cheese macaroni n' cheese recipe for years...thanks to Patti LaBelle. It is delicious however, it's time to switch it up. A tad reluctant while whisking the flour & butter. It crossed… Continue reading Smokey Gouda Mac n’ Cheese

Shepherd’s Pie Potato Bowl

Happy St. Patrick's Day! A history of leftover meat & potato meal made into this savory dish. My former, very Irish Mother-in-law taught me her recipe when I was 22 years old. Since that was 'way back', I've tweaked; added my own seasoning and vegetables ...including beer. I zhuzh'ed it up for everything green day!… Continue reading Shepherd’s Pie Potato Bowl
