5 Ingredient Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes

Do you use your slow cooker as much as I do? If so, you’re gonna love my 5 Ingredient Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes. If I was stranded on an uninhabited tropical island, I’d want one of my slow cookers with me. Of course, an uninhabited island would not have electricity. But you get the jest. […]

How to Make Chunky Chicken Salad for a Crowd

Technically, summer doesn’t end until September 22nd.  So, it’s still prime summertime party season here in the south. I’m in North Myrtle Beach this week enjoying a last-hurrah family beach trip. I call it our goodbye-to-summer see-ya-next-year trip. My husband has already stated that he sure hopes I’m making my chicken salad. No worries. I’ll […]

Patty’s Pimento Cheese

In the south, Pimento Cheese rates way up there, right along side sweet tea, boiled peanuts, grits and cornbread. I don’t know if we could live without it! We eat it as a dip with crackers and crudites. We spread it thick on sandwiches. I’ve even been known to eat it straight up, with a […]

St. Patrick’s Day Lunch

Take a wee bit of Irish, mix with more than a bit of Scottish, and throw in a little Cherokee Indian and, well, you’ve created me. To honor my Irish ancestry, I’ve created an easy, casual little lunch menu. Technically, the Reuben sandwich is not an Irish thing, but corned beef is an American-Irish delight, […]
