Three slices of grilled pineapple pound cake on a plate with whipped cream and mint.

Grilled Pineapple Pound Cake

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…in under 10 minutes!

A white plate piled with air fryer bacon.

Air Fryer Fried Bacon

Making brown sugar air fryer fried bacon is a probably the fastest, cleanest, most delicious way I’ve ever made bacon, and now since I’ve done it, I don’t think I’ll ever go back to the oven or stovetop method. And you can quote me on that!

Coconut Pecan Praline Candy

Not that long ago, I was given a bag of the most delicious pecans from my dear sweet friend Nancie McDermot.

I wanted to make something extra special with these delicious pecans, and something quintessentially southern. I settled on making coconut pecan praline candy, and I’m 100% certain they’re the best pecan pralines I’ve ever made or eaten! 

Lemon Ginger Shrimp Sheet Pan Supper

To get even cooking for this sheet pan lemon garlic shrimp meal, you’ll have to flip and stir the contents at least once during the roasting period and make sure that all the ingredients are in an even layer when you return them to the heat. You’ll also need to make sure to cut the potatoes into small size chunks, so they’ll cook at the same rate as the shrimp. Then, as soon as the potatoes are fork tender and the shrimp are pink and opaque, dinner is ready.

Plate of Italian Roasted Plum Tomatoes with breadcrumbs and cheese.

Italian Roasted Plum Tomatoes

While roasted tomatoes are not something I normally eat for breakfast at home, there was something I adored about the soft, sweet texture of those tomatoes.

I promised myself that when we got home that I’d try and recreate some sort of recipe using roasted tomatoes. This delicious dish of Italian roasted plum tomatoes is where my inspiration led me.

Cauliflower Sweet Potato Mashers

I adore mashed potatoes.

I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t. I’ve made regular mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, mashed Idaho and sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes with celery root, mashed potatoes with pumpkin, plain mashed cauliflower, and now this recipe for cauliflower sweet potato mashers.

This is, by far, my new favorite!

Slices of French bread on a wooden cutting board.

Quick Whole Wheat French Bread

This recipe for quick homemade French bread is super fast and fabulous. It comes together quickly in a large mixing bowl with no special equipment. Of course, the dough can also be kneaded in a stand mixer, but why?

This bread is the type you whip up at the last minute when you want to impress, but you don’t have the time or desire to fool with a loaf of finicky yeast bread.

Fresh peach salsa in a bowl with cilantro, chips, lime and jalapeno

Grilled Peach Salsa

When I was asked to bring an appetizer to a friend’s party recently, I decided I’d make a healthy and delicious fresh peach salsa.

The result is this amazingly fresh grilled fruit salsa recipe which can also pull double-duty as a fruit topping for cooked pork chops or even fish!

Strawberry Basil Salad

I’ve always been a salad girl, but it’s only been the past few years that I’ve started to enjoy fruit included with my veggie salads.

Now that I’ve realized how much I love the sweetness fruit can bring to a savory salad, I find I’m hard pressed to enjoy a strictly vegetable salad ever since.
