Brussel Sprout Salad with Pumpkin Seeds and Cranberries

img_0345

A beautiful Christmas salad to go with just about anything.

A few weekends ago I was looking for a side dish to go with some burgers we were doing one night when my daughter came for the weekend. What started off as a sautéed Brussels with cranberries and pumpkin seeds and parmesan cheese turned into a crunchy salad with a citrus vinaigrette.

At first this salad was going to have pistachios in it because I had a bag full in my freezer then I thought pumpkin seeds sounds so much fitting for this time of the year and go […]

Ramen noodles not just for soup.

With one major holiday behind us and another one speeding toward us like an out of control train, who’s not looking for some easy to make. I’m spending most of my time online shopping (as usual) and last night during cyber Monday I was up clicking away at the last minute at 11:00.

I use to buy Ramen noodles by the case when I catered because one of my favorite salads “Crunchy Romaine Toss” (aka Emerald Green Salad) used these as a topping. Toasted in butter either in a skillet or in the […]

Another twist on a favorite.

In high school we had a favorite place to go for lunch, or I should say two places, one was Knox’s (great burgers, no longer there) and the other was the Round House. Yeah, the restaurant was/is round. My sister and I loved their “combination salad” which consisted of head lettuce, tomato, boiled egg with cottage cheese and covered with a French dressing that was so good I still make that salad for my husband and myself.

I haven’t met anyone that has ever eaten cottage cheese and boiled egg on a salad and […]

Good with chicken too!

Have you had a big reunion yet for either high school or college? My 50th high school union was last year and this year was my husband’s (yes, I have to admit I was a cougar even before that was even a word referring to marrying a younger man; he’s only 9 months younger though.) and I have to say it was so much fun seeing everyone. Our high school, (in Caruthersville ) back then may have had 500 students total, so it was easy to know just about everyone in the whole school.

I […]

Baby Romaine with Peaches and Bacon

IMG_9293

On a trip to Savannah back in the spring we tasted some wonderful southern food. I made a list of several I wanted to try and recreate and I’ve already attempted a few of them successfully.

My twin, Terry, and Pauletta and Judy (high school friends) had a great time sampling some of the local cuisine. We had so many different things to choose from that it was a challenge every meal for me to make up my mine on what to order.

Belford’s Grill was our last place to eat before catching a ride to the airport and […]
