Cheesy Zucchini Rice

And we’re back again to zucchini! 🙂 One of the best wedding presents we were given was a rice cooker. While this recipe can easily be done without one (and I’ve included those instructions below), I find it much easier because, again, I’m lazy. Toss it all in and leave it...

Zucchini Au Gratin

I love zucchini, which is saying a lot since I don’t like many veggies. Something that my taste buds have changed their mind about over the years. This is why I recommend trying things you may not have like the taste of previously. I do it about every 7-10 years. Anyway, I like finding new...

Ambrosia

Ambrosia is the food of the Gods. Seriously, look it up. Now, ambrosia “salad” has been around since the late 1800’s and any “true” ambrosia recipe includes orange (of some variety) and coconut. After that, add whatever the hell you want. I was first introduced to...

Loaded Potato Casserole

I snagged this recipe off of Pinterest but of course altered it. If a recipe calls for “packaged bacon bits”, I am going to ignore that and make real bacon. 🙂   Ingredients: 2 (16oz) containers sour cream 4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded 1lb bacon, cooked and chopped 2...

Potato Salad

Okay, there are a million ways to make potato salad. Everyone has their preferred method, tricks, secret ingredients, etc. And while I would *never* claim to have the best, it’s pretty damn good. 🙂 I will recommend making it a day early. It tasted way better the second day, but...

Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Potatoes. I love them and have yet to find a way to make them that I don’t like. Well, unless you add something nasty like broccoli. Yes, I have a few foods I don’t like. *grin* These are a different way to use mashed potatoes – either leftovers or what I did recently, for a...

Zucchini Tots

Another addition to getting the Man to eat more veggies. I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it looked pretty good. It could also be used as a side for breakfast as well. And if you didn’t know, you can find me on Pinterest here – I have two recipe boards (one for pinned recipes I...

Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

If you want really good seafood, do not go to Red Lobster. Honestly, I have never had a good meal there. I have, however, had the most addicting biscuits in the world there. Really, I think there is actual crack in them, because you cannot eat just one. There are a few recipes out there for...

Baked Mac ‘N Cheese

I spent a lot of my childhood wanting my mother to make her ‘from scratch’ mac ‘n cheese. Kraft is more convenient, but let’s face it – it’s no where near as good. This is not her recipe, it’s from someone else who does a great job in the kitchen –...

Oven Baked Zucchini Sticks

I’m always looking for new ways to make fresh veggies more appetizing for the Man.  I happen to love zucchini and want to have more of it on a regular basis.  I have probably a dozen or so recipes now on cooking (or not cooking) it, and I really like this one. Word of caution:  The...
