Turkey Enchiladas

Turkey Enchiladas

It may not be Thanksgiving, but that’s no reason to forget about leftover turkey recipes.  We recently butchered our very large broad breasted turkey.  He dressed out at 23 pounds.  That’s a whole lot of turkey for a family of three.  Needless to say, we...

Rosemary Lemon Pork Chops

These pork chops are flavorful and juicy.  They are served with a Yogurt Feta sauce, which gave them a really nice tang.  Rather than using boneless pork chops, which were more expensive, I bought a pork loin and cut it into chops.  It made enough food for 2 nights....
Spinach & Pesto Penne

Spinach & Pesto Penne

Farmboy’s not a big fan of green foods, so I was pleasantly surprised by how well he ate this pasta.  It’s a very simple dish, but it packs a lot of flavor with the basil, Parmesan cheese and capers.  If you don’t like capers, make sure you season...
Smoked Pork Ribs with Pineapple Glaze

Smoked Pork Ribs with Pineapple Glaze

  Last Father’s Day, I bought Hubby a smoker. It may have been the best thing I’ve ever purchased. It’s nothing fancy. It cost me less than $50 at Walmart. Yet it has produced some of the most amazing ribs and brisket I’ve ever tasted. I won’t ever cook...

Dirty Rice Stuffed Zucchini

Summer squash comes early here in Florida since our growing season ends in June and doesn’t start back up until September.  These round zucchini (dubbed Eight Ball Zucchini) are available at my local farmer’s market and are great for stuffing. I like to...

Grilled Salmon with Fresh Herb Pesto

I recently won a three month subscription to The Six O’Clock Scramble.  I could go on and on about how much I’m enjoying this service, but I’ll save that for another blog post.  Right now, I’m going to tell you about this simple and delicious...

Basil Chicken in Coconut-Curry Sauce

This was a very nice mid-week meal served over coconut rice.  I’m not a big fan of ginger, so I was glad to see that the flavor was subtle.  It also helped me use up some fresh basil, which was probably the biggest reason I chose to make this recipe.  The...

Yogurt-Mint Marinated Roasted Leg of Lamb

I will be the first to tell you that I am not a big fan of lamb.  I love lamb chops, but the gaminess of lamb roast or stew just really turns me off.  I want to like lamb.  I’ve even had a few preparations that weren’t half bad.  Yet every time I have...

Festive Pork Tenderloin with German Carrots

Today, I have Jessica from The Mad Hatter at Home sharing a delicious recipe for Festive Pork Tenderloin with German Carrots.  I have known Jessica since high school.  She has always impressed me with her ingenuity and resourcefulness.  The recipes on her blog look so...

Tender and Tasty London Broil

London Broil is one dish that I love to serve for Christmas Eve dinner.  It’s an inexpensive cut of meat so it can tend to be dry and tough, but it can become juicy and tender if it’s treated right.  The key is a good marinade, but it’s also...
