I’m not usually one to follow traditions when it comes to food and food holidays like Thanksgiving. What can I say? I get bored easily, and I like to try new things. It’s not always something that my family appreciates, but if I’m the one doing the cooking, then I’m the one who gets to decide what’s on the menu. *insert evil laughter here*
Back in the 70’s (my high school days) I remember cucumber dip being all the rage. It was a tangy mix of grated cucumber, sour cream, and onion. I decided to revisit what I recall was my favorite dip, and (naturally) add my own twist to it for a 2016 update.
Whenever I’m at an American county fair or street festival, I always make a beeline directly to the corn dog stand. Corn dogs have always been something I crave, and they’re the one “food on a stick” that I enjoy more than all the others. Until now, of course. For me, a hot and hearty “Corn-Wurst” now takes the blue ribbon in my heart.
Store-bought puff pastry is truly a modern miracle for bakers everywhere. With a minimum effort and fuss, anyone can turn out impressive dishes or desserts that look like they belong in the front window of a bakery or French patisserie.

Can I tell you a little secret? I’m the girl who rifles through the mixed nuts to pick out all the cashews before anyone else can get to them. I know, it’s not my best quality, but I just can’t seem to help myself. So, the moral of the story is…if you like the cashews best, get to the Browned Butter Sweet Smoky Roasted Nuts before I do! LOL
Baked Pretzel Pecan Coated Chicken Tenders can be served as a main course or an appetizer. They’re moist and meaty, and their crunchy coating is like a party for your mouth!
From the first time I ever tried goat cheese, I knew I’d never be the same. With its creamy texture and mildly pungent taste, goat cheese is the perfect accompaniment for some of Mother Nature’s sweetest things like her seasonal fruits and berries.
Since I don’t want to offend anyone, this is my disclaimer that I am only here to share recipes that I think my readers will enjoy, and can easily recreate. In the following video, you’ll notice that I share two ways to roll Savory Scallion Pancakes. The second way is my take on making the process a little easier. Watch and learn as I show you the two different ways I used to roll these pancakes, from there you can decide what way will work best for you.
