Chicken & Chile Corn Cakes with Buttery Maple Gravy

Are you a fan of chicken and waffles? I sure am. There is something about those sweet and savory flavors that get me every time! I would gladly eat chicken & waffles for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And, I wouldn’t put it past me to eat chicken & waffles for all three meals in one particular day if I ever had the opportunity. LOL! Is it so wrong? Yeah, probably. But, a girl can dream, right?

Corned Beef & Swiss Cheese Reuben Quesadillas with Creamy 1000 Islands Dipping Sauce

This riff recipe of Corned Beef & Swiss Cheese Reuben Quesadillas with 1000 Islands Dipping sauce came about when I had planned on making traditional Reuben sandwiches with rye bread for dinner one night, but realized that I’d forgotten to purchase rye bread at the store. Uh oh! Luckily for me, I had a full package of flour tortillas that were calling my name and begging for their chance to be utilized in something other than a Tex-Mex recipe. Enter this recipe for Corned Beef & Swiss Cheese Reuben Quesadillas with Creamy 1000 Islands Dipping Sauce.

Antioxidant Rich Blood Orange and Blueberry Salad

I have a confession to make; I’d never even tried a blood orange before making this Blood Orange and Blueberry Salad. Oh sure I’d seen them in the stores often enough, and on other people’s blogs, but since I’m not that fond of eating citrus fruits on their own, I’ve never added them to my shopping cart. Until now!

Incredibly Delicious Pretzel Roll Stuffing with Pine Nuts

I’ve always been all about the pretzel. Whether it’s a soft, warm pretzel that’s been slathered with yellow mustard, or a large, fragrant, yeasty pretzel bun, which elevates a delicious burger from good, to great! It’s always the pretzel that makes things memorable. Always.

Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto

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.
