Classic Fettuccine Bolognese

I always say that every delicious soup, sauce, stew or braise starts with the “Holy Trinity.” The holy trinity in cooking is simply a combination of three aromatic ingredients (carrots, onions and celery), sautéed together to provide a stable flavor base for other ingredients…

Cashew Chicken…Homemade

I am always up for trying to replicate meals at home.  Eating out not only adds up on the pocket book, but many times, isn’t worth the price.  Nothing is more disappointing when we eat out and are unimpressed with our food. One food…

Ham, Bean and Cornbread Meal

If there is one meal that I remember as a child on the farm it was ham and beans! It was a meal my mother would cook-up on cold wintry days that would keep us fed for days. It seemed as though this meal…

I’ve been working on a new soup recipe for a few weeks now, as I had to get the recipe perfect before posting it to you all!  Chicken & Wild Rice Soup has always been a favorite on mine that I typically order at…

In Honor of National Pie Day…Chicken Pot Pie

Happy Pie Day ya’ll!  My husband texted me early this morning to say, “Happy Pie Day…Sugar Pie.”  Love that man, he’s always full of surprises.   If you are looking for a listing of winning pie recipes, check out the American Pie Council website….

McConnell Brisket

Baked brisket is one of my family’s favorite treats. This recipe is one that anyone can impress your friends and family with at the next big dinner your host. This is a baked brisket, not smoked, but loaded with flavor! Baked Brisket 5 lb…

Winter Oxtail Stew

I know what you are thinking, “Oxtail…the tail of the ox?”  Yes, that’s correct- oxalis come from the steer’s tail. Now that I have your attention, Oxtail Stew is one of those childhood memories for me that take me back to the kitchen of…
