Delicious Herbed Organic Homemade Chicken Stock

When purchasing vegetables and herbs for homemade herbed chicken stock, it’s best (and healthiest) to keep them all organic, if possible. When it comes to choosing organic poultry, you’ll find that you get even more flavor out of a smaller organic chicken than a larger non-organic chicken, which makes buying organic easier on your wallet than you may have thought.

Zippy Pimento Cheese Mashed Potatoes

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*

Bratwurst on a Stick with Fried Cornmeal Beer Batter

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.

Roasted Garden Fresh Tomato Bacon Basil Linguine

This dish can be made with any type of pasta that is your favorite. I happen to enjoy linguine, and had it in my pantry, so that’s what I used. Feel free to swap out whatever you have, and whatever is convenient. This roasted tomato bacon pasta takes approximately 30 minutes, from start to dinner, which makes it a stress-free recipe that will please the entire family any night of the week.

Heirloom Tomato Salad with Garlic Lemon Infused Olive Oil

This heirloom tomato salad is so good, so fresh, and so loaded with textures and flavors that will explode in your mouth with each and every bite. The crunch from the pistachios, the creaminess of the goat cheese, the sweet and oniony bite of the red onion, the savory earthiness of the fresh thyme, the mild and pungent fragrance of the garlic lemon olive oil, and of course the sweet and juicy garden fresh tomatoes.
