Southern-Style Egg Salad
Southern egg salad, primarily used for sandwiches. Serve on fresh bread of your choice. My wife likes to make double-decker sandwiches (utilizing whole wheat bread for the center slice) with pimento cheese on the other half. Trim the edges and cut into 2 or 3 pieces. Great for tailgating.
Butter Swim Biscuits
These biscuits are literally swimming in butter prior to baking, hence the name. No need to butter them since they are buttery and fluffy. Perfect for breakfast or for dinner. Great use of pantry items during this stay-at-home order during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Taco Soup
Reminiscent of the very popular dish King Ranch Chicken in the form a soup. With all the same flavors and the convenience of throwing everything into a slow cooker, this will also quickly become a favorite. Top with fried corn tortilla strips, if desired.
Baked Strawberry French Toast
Fresh strawberries and cream bring rich flavor to this easy oven strawberry French toast recipe. Perfect make-ahead recipe for breakfast or brunch! Serve with extra berries, whipped cream, and strawberry syrup.
The Best Baked Rice and Beans
Due to certain worldwide events, I've been getting lots of requests for easy, hearty recipes that can be made using basic dry and canned goods. This incredibly delicious Spanish-style baked rice and beans is all that and more. You'll also see a fantastic, foolproof way of making perfect rice, every time. Garnish with Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, and chopped cilantro, if you like.
Garlic-Brown Sugar Chicken Thighs
I love the crunchy chicken skin and brown sugar pan sauce that comes out of this.
Pantry Chicken Casserole
Using pantry items plus a couple of fresh items, you can create a cheesy, comforting casserole your whole family will love. Though it does include RO*TEL® and a can of mild green chile peppers, it's not spicy, but if you like the heat, choose hot RO*TEL® and peppers. This pantry chicken casserole reheats well, too, but I had to hide it, or there would have been no night #2! A crusty bread and a green salad complete this easy pantry meal.
Slow Cooker Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole
A great cauliflower side dish that goes well with just about anything. An easy way to get kids to eat veggies.
Cuban-Inspired Slow Cooker Chicken
A refreshing and (virtually) effortless slow cooker recipe for Cuban chicken that I threw together out of desperation to have a cooking-free evening.
