With the popularity of sheet pan dinners going through the roof, I wanted to bring you a recipe that would utilize some of autumn’s best-tasting vegetables and flavors, along with the always popular, moist and meaty, boneless and skinless chicken thigh. The result is this Easy Maple Mustard Chicken Thigh Sheet Pan Supper.
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*

You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well. Since there’s nothing I can do about the outside temperatures, I might as well make it feel like fall on the inside and cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto.
When you don’t have time to fuss after a long day to get dinner on the table, with very little preparation in the morning you can have this delicious and easy Mexican Slow Cooker Pork Tacos with Rice meal waiting to eat almost as soon as you walk in the door.
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.
With zucchinis still being so prevalent in the grocery store, and in home gardens and farmer’s markets, I wanted to come up with a recipe that marries the idea of eggplant Parmesan, and pizza, but with using summer squash as a replacement for the eggplant. I think I hit the nail right on the head with this recipe for Italian Layered Zucchini Parmesan! Try it, and you be the judge.
While I do like to bake from scratch a lot, there are times when using pre-made store-bought items fits the bill as far as time is concerned. So is the case with this Grilled Pineapple Pound Cake. It’s an utterly delicious, easy, and impressive dessert you’ll be proud to serve.
Here we are at the end of the summer BBQ season and at the front door of tailgating season. What I love about this dill pickle potato salad is that it can carry through the two seasons, seamlessly and effortlessly. Trust me when I tell you that you’ll score big points with family and friends no matter when you serve it!
