Amelia's Tuna Macaroni Salad
This macaroni salad will remind you of Grandma's. I love this when the weather is warm. One of the basic comfort foods!
Red Skinned Potato Salad
This creamy salad is made with red potatoes, which give this dish--chock full of melt-in-your-mouth bacon, bits of hard boiled egg, crunchy celery and spicy onion--a delectable, firm texture.
Kidney Bean Salad
A simple and delicious combination of hard-cooked eggs, beans, onion, celery, and sweet pickle relish. A little mayo holds it all together.
Grandma's Stuffed Celery
My grandma always made stuffed celery at Thanksgiving and Christmas. As kids, we were always so hungry before the holiday meal we would sneak and get a piece of celery to curb our appetite. It was nearly all gone by meal time and we always got fussed at with hint of a grin from Grandma. Now I never have holiday meals without it!
Egg Salad with Celery
This is a very simple egg salad with celery recipe, and some might find it a little bland for their tastes, but I love it just the way it is!
Lo Mein Noodles
This was a blend of multiple lo mein recipes I found. Add your favorite meat for a main dish, or make as a side dish to your favorite homemade chinese dinner. If you use meat, cook the meat in the pan first, and then pull out and set aside.
Shrimp Ceviche Baja Style
This ceviche will give you a hint of Baja California. This is my grandma Isabel Flores' recipe. Garnish with fresh oregano. Enjoy with tostadas and ketchup. I enjoy my ceviche spreading a thin layer of mayonnaise in my tostada prior to add the ceviche. From my table to yours. Enjoy.
Pork Osso Buco
Pork shank isn't as rich as veal, but I like it better in osso buco. Still, if you want veal you can use it here too.
Grilled Buffalo Chicken Thighs with Blue Cheese Slaw
All of the buffalo wing flavor you love in an appetizer but served dinner-style. Bonus is that the chicken is grilled and not fried.
Meal Prep Soup Base
I use this basic recipe as a base for Meal Prep Sunday: I make a large batch and eat it for lunch over the week. I add different spices to individual cups to vary the day's flavor. Ground chipotle or curry for heat, ginger or fresh herbs for aroma, etc.
Jersey Fresh Stewed Tomatoes
This is a great side dish for ham or fish using garden-fresh tomatoes, peppers, celery and onions. A little sugar cuts the acid of the tomatoes.
