Praline Apple Crisp

Apples are a staple in our household. We eat them almost daily. They are a quick and easy snack that can be prepared in seconds to quiet the whining of children who are genuinely convinced that they are going to starve to death when 12:05 rolls around and their lunch isn’t yet on the table. But apples are so much more! When baked, they are a delightful comfort food which can invoke fond memories from childhood....

Jalapeno Artichoke Party Dip

This dip has many uses. Most of the time, it is an appetizer, served with tortilla chips. However, it is equally good served with carrot and celery sticks, makes a lovely burger spread, and really jazzes up a wrap sandwich. I’ve even mixed it into plain rice with a handful of leftover chicken tossed in. For this reason, I make BIG batches. Of course, you can scale it down for your needs. But if you make a small...

Crocking up

Slow cookers are great. But I do find that if you over-use them, everything that comes out of them starts to taste the same and it gets really boring, really fast.

It’s also my favorite way to use up a ham bone for split pea soup and a...

Super Slaw

My kids love salad. Yes, I know, they are weird. Jeremiah is particularly fond of coleslaw, and this one is a lot like the side dish you find at that fried chicken place. Obviously, cheaper and fresher made at home. It’s also a great way to use up the other half of that head of cabbage if you’ve made shrimp or fish tacos recently. Goes great with barbeque. Delicious on sandwiches in place of lettuce and mayo, even...

Tacos de Pescados

These aren’t the battered and deep fried fish tacos like you’ve had at Rubio’s, Alberto’s, Albertaco’s, Tacoberto’s or Eriberto’s. Don’t get me wrong. I love the classic battered fried fish tacos that they serve at those places. I just can’t have them anymore because the wheat flour in the batter does evil things to me. So I set out on a mission to perfect the fish taco...
