On the 11th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Caramel Sauce

On the 11th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Caramel Sauce
Dan’s Candies in Joliet has the best caramel apples and I am lucky enough to have a neighbor who works in Joliet and is nice enough to bring me some each Fall.  Another easy way to get the same “fix” is to make a caramel sauce and eat it with apple slices.  Make some today... Read more »

On the 10th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Scalloped Pineapple

On the 10th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Scalloped Pineapple
If you are making a ham I have a great side to accompany it. It is like a casserole or a bread pudding, but it is called scalloped. Not sure why. But whatever you call it, it is soooo good. If you are eating out, have fun, but if you want to make this with... Read more »

On the 9th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Balsamic Poached Chicken

On the 9th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me:  Balsamic Poached Chicken
This makes the most beautiful chicken to use for salads or sandwiches or, of course, to eat hot fresh after poaching.  It is never tough or dry and it is white on the inside and brown on the outside. The contrast when you slice it is beautiful.    The only downside is that it inevitably... Read more »

On the 8th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Bourbon Salmon

On the 8th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Bourbon Salmon
Here is a recipe that will save you from going to a high priced restaurant.   The nice thing about this recipe is you can double or triple the glaze, make however many salmon fillets you want, and save any leftover glaze for chicken later.   Or if you don’t like salmon, skip that first...

Feeling overwhelmed and busy?  This is the perfect slow cook recipe. Throw it in a crock pot or dutch oven on low for the day.  You will feel better.

On the 4th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Beer Bread

On the 4th Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Beer Bread
Unless it is a quick bread, like banana or pumpkin, it can be scary.  Bread scares people.  It seems too difficult.  But really, when you think about it, people were making bread before they could read a recipe.  …before they could drive a car to the store for ingredients.  …before they could post recipes on...

On the 3rd Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Lasagna
When it’s a busy time of the year, a 9×11 pan of anything is just what you need for dinner.  Sure you could buy Stouffers and pop it in the oven in tin foil, but this is soo much better. Lasagna might seem scary, but it is actually so easy and adaptable.  It can be... Read more »
