While grabbing a few things from the grocery store earlier today, I ran across some fingerling potatoes on clearance for just 99 cents at a local Kroger. Now, these potatoes I have never tried before, but when I see a deal – especially on food – I usually go for it. When I got home I immediately went online for a way to prepare them.
After searching through Google, Foodnetwork and Pinterest, nothing caught my eye other than a unique way that you can slice them. Many recipes called for just cutting them in half length wise, but there was also another way to slice them so that they would look something similar to corkscrew fries. It just looked pretty to me, so I made note of it. View Post
Everything tastes better with bacon, right???
I think so! And hot-dogs are no exception. Lets face it, on these hot and humid summer days, when you really don’t want to hang around over a hot stove cooking, hot dogs are an quick, easy, and mess free go to lunch for the kids, or even just yourself! Adding bacon to the mix just makes everything better.
There are so many choices when preparing this tasty lunch though, and most of them depend on your own preferences. What flavor of bacon, what type of hot-dog, and even what kind of bun can influence your taste buds differently. So, go with what you like the most and make it work! Meanwhile, I will offer up what I used in the recipe below. View Post
What’s better than a slice of sweet potato pie?
Sweet potato pie……….. in a cup!! LOL
Sweet potato pie is my all time favorite dessert, right before tiramisu. But, I’ve gained some weight thanks to my sweet tooth and now I’m trying to watch how much that I eat. Smaller portions is what I’m working on. So I said to myself, hey, I wonder has anyone ever tried to make sweet potato pie cupcakes?
I went online and found tons of recipes for cupcakes with sweet potato in them… and pumpkin pie cupcakes…. but not actual sweet potato PIE cupcakes with an actual crust! So this here is my own personal rendition… If you’ve seen something similar to this around elsewhere, let me know, and keep reading for the details 🙂
One of my favorite dishes in the whole wide world are GREENS. Yasssssss hunny, believe me when I tell you all that I just love them! This is honestly something that I have grown up eating since a little baby. Greens are expected on the menu in my house every single time Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Easter roll around. I have fond memories of my grandmother and grandfather cleaning greens together, cutting them apart, and simmering a huge stock pot full of them.. enough for all the family to eat their full. I could never get enough of it as a child although my daughter isn’t quite yet that fond of vegetables. I’m still hoping that she grows out of this stage.
The issue I’ve always had with fixing greens though, is who has time to prepare them? I mean, You’ve got to wash them throughly, and take out the stems, cut em all in small pieces and then keep an eye on the pot once it’s cooking… Ugh! That said, I sometimes can be a lazy cook, and so here’s where the pre-cut bags and slow cooker comes in! View Post
