Herb Cheese Chicken with Pan Sauce


There are times when I have the least amount of ingredients available between refrigerator, freezer and pantry that from sheer desperation of what to put together for dinner that my creative side kicks in and a new recipe (at least new to me) is born. This is what happened this past week when I made this herb cheese chicken with pan sauce.

Mexican Shepherds Pie

When thinking about what to have for dinner on what seemed to be a not so warm spring day, I gravitated back to something hearty. What I came up with was to make shepherd's pie. I did not have left over gravy so just as I was about to toss that idea out the window, it struck me. Why not try to blend the Mexican flavors we love into a hearty meal that would be made like a shepherds pie?

Easy Apple Pie Beggars Purses


There has been an extra can of apple pie mixture in my pantry for a while now. It has been there since I used one of them for my Easy Fried Apple Pies. It has been haunting me. Other than picking up another can and making an apple pie (as I have a deep dish frozen crust in the freezer to use also) I have been unable to come up with an idea. Until now.

Crispy Curried Baked Chicken


My mother used to bake chicken wings when we were growing up and all she did was add seasonings and dots of butter on each wing. By the mid to late 1960's there was a pre-made "salad seasoning" mix that hit the market and she used it not only in salad dressings but on top of chicken wings as well. Our whole family loved the wings and back then they were cheap by the day's standards. Today, not so much. Maybe it's due to the popularity wings gained when the Buffalo Wing was introduced to the foodie scene and ever since there has been a zillion recipes created using wings.

Chocolate Cake with Black Raspberry Ganache

I don't think I have ever met any one that didn't like chocolate. However I have met people who ate so much chocolate candy and got sick and were never able to eat anything chocolate for either a very long time or never again. My husband definitely falls into the category of chocoholic. In my later years I must admit I have grown more fond of it and like my husband, get a daily craving for a little something chocolate. This chocolate cake with black raspberry ganache will cure any chocolate craving you have.

Steakhouse Barbecue Shrimp - Orleans Style


Barbecue Shrimp is an appetizer at Ruth Chris Steakhouse and whenever I have had the opportunity to dine there it is what I order. It's fabulous. I tried recreating it years ago and I must say it was fairly good, but not exactly like what I had at the restaurant. Determined to try it again, I went searching to see if perhaps there was a published recipe. There was. I found it on and am going to use that recipe because it sounds like the real deal.
