Nutty Orange Feta Salad

Nutty Orange Feta Salad

Do you like feta?  I wasn’t a big fan until eating my friend JA’s Pasta Salad for a Crowd.  Let’s just say I’m warming up to it. I decided to try feta in a salad of mixed greens, mandarin oranges, and toasted almonds.  Oh. My. Goodness. Kroger sells the most delicious Orange Poppy Seed Dressing […]

Egg Roll/Wonton Salad

Egg Roll/Wonton Salad

I tasted this salad for the first time on our girls’ trip. Remember the trip – where several high school friends and I met at Cane River Cottage in Louisiana for a long weekend? My friend with the three boys (rather, young men) made this salad for us, along with the Crock Pot Tortellini Stew. […]

Corn Dip for the Girls’ Trip

Corn Dip

I hope you had a fantastic Father’s Day yesterday.  This was one of the best for us, I have to say, and I look forward to sharing our favorite family table setting yet. In my post about what was blooming at Cane River Cottage, I promised to share some recipes from the trip.  Since we […]

Crunchy Romaine Salad

Bite of Crunchy Romaine Salad

What’s happening at your house over the weekend?  Are you making anything new?  Trying any new recipes?  I’ve got one you will definitely want to make. My friend Debbie shared this recipe with me a few years back.  Every time I eat it, I’m amazed.  It is just so good! You might remember Debbie.  She’s […]

Quick Prep New Potato Salad

New Potato Salad

After making Ginny’s Salt Crusted New Potatoes for the first time, we had several of those tiny spuds left over.  Don’t get me wrong.  There was nothing wrong with the potatoes.  They were delicious!  But, with only two of us at the meal, we barely made a dent in the 2 pounds of new potatoes. […]

Lemon Basil Chicken (or Turkey) Salad

Lemon Basil Chicken Salad

This salad is terrific to use when you have leftover chicken of any kind.  I’ve used rotisserie chicken, lemon chicken, baked chicken – well, everything except barbecue chicken. I’ve also used leftover turkey meat after Thanksgiving, and it is delicious – and a nice change from the flavors we associate with Thanksgiving.  I’m not saying […]

Southern Chickpea Salad

Do you crave summer-time foods throughout the year?  Maybe it’s just a “Southern thang”. Don’t get me wrong.  I love soup, especially on a really cold day.  But, with all our warm weather year ’round, salads are part of a steady diet here in the South. During summer, when tomatoes and cucumbers are fresh out […]
