Southern Style Potato Salad

Southern Style Potato Salad One of my favorite things about this time of year is that the weather is great for cooking on the grill or picnicking.  As much as I love cooking, sometimes I don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  When the weather is nice, it makes you want to enjoy the outdoors.  So this recipe for Southern Style Potato Salad will make sure you get to enjoy nature on a full belly.  It...

Gruyère Asparagus Tart

Gruyere Asparagus Tart

  Gruyère Asparagus Tart Have you ever tried to make homemade puff pastry?  While it is not difficult to make, it is time-consuming because you have to chill the dough between each rolling.  When I made it, I used a Martha Stewart recipe which can be found here.  I adapted Martha's recipe for Asparagus Gruyère Tart when I made my Gruyère Asparagus Tart recipe. Fresh From the Garden Asparagus I made this tart for our Easter dinner this year and it was...

Cucumber Onion Salad

Cucumber Onion Salad

Cucumber Onion Salad My mother used to make a salad similar to this when I was growing up.  She added more vinegar and she also added sugar.  I may get my Southern Girl rights revoked by saying that I am not a fan of adding sugar to some traditional dishes that Southern Cooks add sugar to.  Cornbread for example.  My daughter actually prefers the sweet yellow cornbread (I call it the JiffyMix or School Lunch Cornbread lol).  My sister adds...

Eggplant Lasagna

Eggplant Lasagna

Eggplant Lasagna When I am in the mood for comfort food, I can't think of anything more satisfying than Eggplant Lasagna.  Cutting into layers of  tender pasta, gooey melted cheese, eggplant, tomato sauce, more cheese. . . Ummmm. Making my own mouth water. 🙂  The thing about a good Lasagna is letting it sit for a few minutes after removing it from the oven so it can firm up.  Who can ever wait though?  When I make Lasagna, we are...

Simple Squash Saute

Simple Squash Saute

Simple Squash Saute We have a little less than two weeks until the official start of summer (June 20th) but I have already found some great locally grown squash at the Rainbow City Farmer's Market last week.  The ones I picked out were small and delicious.  I made a Simple Squash Saute from them to go with our Sunday lunch and they were great with our pinto beans, cornbread, cabbage, mac-n-cheese and my sister's yummy coleslaw.  Of course we had...

Falafel

  Falafel If you have never had Falafel, you don't know what you are missing.  They are little balls of heaven.  You all know that I am far from being a vegetarian, but if I ever decide to go down that path, I am taking these little jewels with me.  Besides being deep fried, these are very healthy.  And yes, you can bake them if you want to go that route.  Just spray a baking pan with cooking spray or...

Potato Salad

Potato Salad

Potato salad is a summer staple of the South.  No picnic or family get together would be the same without a big 'ol bowl of Tater Salad. There are so many recipes for potato salad and every family probably has their own "secret" recipe.   My sister makes the best potato salad.  She is so sweet because we have a couple of picky eaters in the family and she will make a batch of potato salad, scoop some into a...

Grilled Corn and Black Eyed Pea Salad

Grilled Corn and Black Eyed Peas Salad

Nothing says summer like a nice refreshing salad.  This salad combines grilled corn, black eyed peas, tomatoes and onions in a tangy olive oil lemon sauce.  You could serve this salad with grilled meat or also as a dip with tortilla chips.  The next time you grill out and have left over corn, don't waste it by tossing it out (my pet peeve is wasting food), repurpose it in this Grilled Corn and Black Eyed Pea Salad. Try it out and...

Homemade Pasta with Creamy Garlicky Veggie Sauce

    Last night was a Meat-less Monday at our house.  Guess what?  It was so delicious, we didn't even miss the meat.  Don't get me wrong, I love meat and don't ever see myself becoming a vegetarian, but sometimes veggies are the way to go.  I have made homemade pasta before and have been wanting to make some wide noodles.  I think wide noodles go really well with a creamy vegetable sauce.  Of course you have to throw in...

Chicken with Mixed Vegetables or Tavuklu Türlü
