Air Fryer Spanish Tortilla
A Spanish tortilla is just as tasty when made in your air fryer. This recipe saves on cleanup and reduces oil from the traditional recipes. Try this nestled in a ciabatta roll with some hot sauce.
Chicken Salad Summer Rolls
I love chicken salad sandwiches but every once in a while for a change of pace will do this gluten-free, low-carb summer roll version, which is as fun to make as it is to eat! A basic chicken salad made with leftover chicken is wrapped with crunchy, colorful vegetables inside a flexible rice wrapper and then served alongside a delicious herb aioli. So addicting! This is a great summertime culinary project for kids.
This is an easy zucchini recipe with Mediterranean roots - all you need is zucchini, parsley, olive oil, vinegar, and garlic for this simple vegan side.

It's so easy to make your own fresh and flavorful vinaigrette, you'll never waste your money on the store-bought stuff ever again! This is such a versatile dressing. Try it on mixed green salads, arugula, spinach, tomato slices, or steamed asparagus! Any leftover vinaigrette will keep up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Enjoy!
Fried Green Tomato Parmesan
Rather than the traditional eggplant Parmesan, I found that using fried green tomatoes gives a better flavor and texture!

I got some garlic scapes in my veg box and wondered if I could just throw them on the grill. Success! They came out yummy and made a nice side dish to burgers.
Mamaw's Chicken and Rice Casserole
I grew up on this recipe, my Grandmother got it from a lady from church at a pot luck a long time ago! She passed it down to my mom and it's always been a family favorite. Quick and easy for school nights, and the leftovers are just as good! You can use less butter on top of course, my Momma and Mamaw always put the full stick on top (gotta love Southern ladies and their butter!)
Rich and creamy! I have found that Parmesan cheese doesn't melt well, and often substitute Gruyere cheese.
Best Steak Marinade in Existence
This is a family recipe that has been developed only over the last 5 years. In this short time it's made me famous in our close circle, but until now I've never shared it with anyone.
Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing
After failing to find the perfect recipe for buttercream icing, I found one that worked for me and then added my own two cents.
Juicy Roasted Chicken
My grandmother's recipe for roasted chicken. We are German and she used to do it this way all the time. I never have had a chicken this juicy before; this little trick works and makes the people eating it go silent. It's funny. We nibble on the celery after.
You can keep the batter covered in the fridge for up to a week. Just be sure to whisk well before using again. You may also use whole wheat flour for this recipe.
Easy Sugar Cookies
Quick and easy sugar cookies! They are really good, plain or with candies in them. My friend uses chocolate mints on top, and they're great!
Microwave Corn on the Cob
This is a no-nonsense recipe for corn on the cob. Perfect for when you run out of stove or grill space. I freeze the corn on the cob in plastic bags, and remove a single ear of frozen corn in the cold winter months to have the sweet taste of summer corn throughout the year!

I've been experimenting with cobbler for some time and this recipe is the final result. Loved by all. Use fresh Georgia peaches, of course!
Best Fried Green Tomatoes
You can also fry up red tomatoes with this recipe but make sure they are not over ripe or they will be mushy. Serve these tomatoes outside with a glass of iced tea one summer night and enjoy the sunset with someone you love.

There are many, fancy variations on this basic recipe. This recipe works with many types of bread - white, whole wheat, cinnamon-raisin, Italian or French. Serve hot with butter or margarine and maple syrup.
This is the best cake I have ever tasted. My mom gave me this recipe and I can't make it often because I would weigh 500 pounds. Hope it lasts more than a day at your house!
Homemade Mac and Cheese
This is a nice rich mac and cheese. Serve with a salad for a great meatless dinner. Hope you enjoy it.
Simple Macaroni and Cheese
A very quick and easy fix to a tasty side-dish. Fancy, designer mac and cheese often costs forty or fifty dollars to prepare when you have so many exotic and expensive cheeses, but they aren't always the best tasting. This recipe is cheap and tasty.
Yellow Squash Casserole
Tender squash, gooey cheese and crunchy crackers make this a memorable side dish or a hearty main course. This is a great dish that can be made with low-fat ingredients and is still just as good!

This is my own version of the chocolate microwave mug cake. This chocolaty fudgy treat is truly decadent and great for nights when I need a yummy dessert that is ready in less than 10 minutes! Chocolate chips make this recipe even better.
Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
This is a great recipe when you don't want to wait for the dough to rise. You just mix it and allow it to rest for 5 minutes and then it's ready to go!! It yields a soft, chewy crust. For a real treat, I recommend you use bread flour and bake it on a pizza stone, but all-purpose flour works well too. Enjoy!
Blueberry Bottom Cake
This cake is light, airy, and super refreshing with a lovely presentation, not to mention super easy to make. Try using different fruits or berries or different flavored gelatin, such as raspberry.
If you're tired of the same old side dishes, this recipe is for you! Wonderfully unique flavors of balsamic vinegar, garlic, and thyme combine to make a roasted vegetable dish that is going to win you many compliments!
Microwave Baked Potato
If you want the yummy taste of a slowly baked potato but aren't patient enough, or don't have the know-how to bake it in an oven, this is for you. Give it 12 minutes and get a mouth-watering, taste bud-tingling treat.
A dear friend gave me this recipe many years ago and I've been making it ever since. It's great for barbecues.
Simple appetizer - the balsamic vinegar gives it a little kick. Best if the mixture has 1 or 2 hours to blend flavors before serving.
Classic Macaroni Salad
This is a salad that everyone seems to love. I always get lots of compliments on this recipe and it is just a pleasing taste that seems to suit everyone.
The Best Banana Pudding
The best no bake banana pudding you will ever find (or so I've been told by many).
Best Strawberry Daiquiri
A frosty blender full of strawberry-citrus slush. You will enjoy this with or without the rum!
This is a great recipe to make your own fajita seasoning. No bouillon cubes means this is perfect for vegetarians too! Make up a larger batch and store in an airtight container for future use.
Simple White Cake
This cake was sent home from our children's school. It is the simplest, great tasting cake I've ever made. Great to make with the kids, especially for cupcakes.

This easy banana bread recipe is quick to prepare, and everyone always comes back for seconds!
Balsamic Grilled Zucchini
A simple, easy grilled zucchini with a touch of balsamic vinegar and spices.
Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork)
"Char siu" literally means "fork roast" - "char" being "fork" (both noun and verb) and "siu" being "roast" - after the traditional cooking method for the dish: long strips of seasoned boneless pork are skewered with long forks and placed in a covered oven or over a fire. This is best cooked over charcoal, but it's important to cook with indirect heat.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
This tangy, creamy dip tastes just like Buffalo chicken wings. It's best served hot with crackers and celery sticks. Everyone loves the results!
Air Fryer Pasta Chips
These pasta chips are crunchy, salty, and addicting. I like them plain but feel free to serve them with a marinara dipping sauce if desired. Store in an airtight container.
Mom's Peach Crisp
My mom and I would often make this yummy and easy peach crisp using her home-canned peaches when I was little.
My version of chicken parmesan is a little different than what they do in the restaurants, with less sauce and a crispier crust.
Buttery Garlic Green Beans
Only fresh green beans and garlic will do for this easy, healthy, and flavorful side dish.
Basic Chicken Salad
This basic chicken salad is a family favorite. I like to use baked thighs or breasts that have been sprinkled with basil or rosemary.

I serve this dish over homemade egg noodles. The chicken is so tender you will not need a knife...SOoooooGood!
Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp
My dad gave me this recipe, and every time I make it I have people begging me for the recipe.
The REAL Long Island Iced Tea
There are a few impostors out there that claim to be Long Island Iced Teas. In actuality, there is only one correct way to make a LIIT... and this is it!
Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
Authentic Italian-style risotto cooked the slow and painful way, but oh so worth it. Complements grilled meats and chicken dishes very well. Check the rice by biting into it. It should be slightly al dente (or resist slightly to the tooth but not be hard in the center).
How to make basic whipped cream. For best results make sure whisk and bowl are ice cold.
Chicken Spaghetti III
Shredded chicken and spaghetti stirred into a mixture of melted cheese, green onion, tomatoes, red and green chile peppers and creamy mushroom soup. A Classic Chicken Spaghetti with a little bite. This is a good last minute chicken recipe for a family, and my 2-year-old loves to eat this recipe with his fingers. Also, this dish freezes well. Serve with garlic bread, if desired.
Baked Kale Chips
These are a low calorie nutritious snack. Like potato chips, you cannot stop at just eating one. They are great for parties and a good conversation topic.

Chef John's Fresh Salmon Cakes
Salmon cakes are one of my go-to emergency meals. Every once in a while I like to use fresh salmon. Salmon is one of those products, like chicken, that's very easy to get into a rut with. People generally find a few recipes that work for them, and just stay with those, but this fairly simple preparation should be easy to add to anyone's rotation. Serve with lemon wedge and remoulade sauce. You can use any bread crumbs instead of panko breadcrumbs, if desired.
Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
These cookies are the pinnacle of perfection! If you want a big, fat, chewy cookie like the kind you see at bakeries and specialty shops, then these are the cookies for you!

These oatmeal cookies are very moist with a good flavor. Add a cup of raisins or nuts if you desire.
Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs
Man, when your guests bite into these at the Memorial Day cookout, they'll savor meat so tender and juicy that it slides right off the bone and gets you the respect you deserve! I have found that the major restaurant chains who make this awesome dish pre-cook their ribs SLOWLY before the quick grilling process.
Moscow Mule Cocktail
This cocktail's origin has nothing to do with Moscow or mules, but after a few sips of this vodka, ginger beer, and lime concoction, no one will care.
Easy Zucchini Fritters
These fritters are unbelievably easy to make, low in calories, and the perfect way to sneak in some veggies!
Spaghetti Aglio e Olio
No two spaghetti aglio e olio recipes are alike, but this one is pretty true to the classic method. The key is slowly toasting the garlic slices to a perfect golden-brown in the olive oil. If it's too light, you don't get the full flavor and if it's too dark it gets bitter. My advice? Do it perfectly.
The Best Steak Marinade
We use this marinade for rib steaks, but can be used for almost any cut of beef.
Quick Tartar Sauce
Uses ingredients you might have on hand to whip up for fish sticks or fish and chips.
Perfect Summer Fruit Salad
The perfect fruit salad for a backyard bbq or any occasion. There are never leftovers! This is one of my favorite fruit salad recipes, as I think the sauce really makes it. This salad is tastier the longer you can let it soak in its juices. I prefer 3 to 4 hours in the refrigerator before I serve it. Enjoy.
Tres Leches (Milk Cake)
This cake is made with three layers: Cake, filling, and topping. There are 4 types of milk in the filling and topping (whole milk, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream). This is an excellent cake for milk lovers!
Garlic-Brown Sugar Chicken Thighs
I love the crunchy chicken skin and brown sugar pan sauce that comes out of this.
Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce
If you know someone from Buffalo, they know someone who told them the secret ingredients to the Anchor Bar's famous Buffalo chicken wings. I know people from Buffalo. This is my version, as described to me many years ago, over almost as many beers.
Tall and fluffy. These pancakes are just right. Topped with strawberries and whipped cream, they are impossible to resist.
Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls
These spring rolls are a refreshing change from the usual fried variety, and have become a family favorite. They are great as a cool summertime appetizer, and are delicious dipped in one or both of the sauces.
