Great Debates: Is a Hot Dog a Sandwich?

Great Debates: Is a Hot Dog a Sandwich?

I wouldn’t go so far as to actually call a hot dog on a bun  a “hot dog sandwich”, sort of like I won’t call a hoagie a “hoagie sandwich”, a Philly cheesesteak a “Philly cheesesteak sandwich”, or a cheeseburger a “cheeseburger sandwich”. But, come […]

How To Roast Beets

How To Roast Beets

I have eaten beets before, but I have to admit that I have never purchased fresh beets and cooked them. Today, I did just that by roasting them. Though beets are high in carbohydrates, they are packed with healthy nutrients that help lower blood pressure, […]

Chocolate & Strawberry Almond Milk

Chocolate & Strawberry Almond Milk

I don’t know about you, but I was amazed by chocolate milk when I was a little girl. I’d walk down the grocery store aisle with my mom, and when I’d see the chocolate milk tucked into the corner of the milk section, I’d swoon. This was […]

Project 365: Radishes

Project 365: Radishes

Day 32 Radishes are one of those vegetables that are beautiful in color, but only seem to get love as a topping for salads. I’ve gotten hooked on making and eating refrigerator pictures, and have a batch of them in the fridge waiting to turn into […]

Slow Cooker Grits

Slow Cooker Grits

I used my small 2-quart Crockpot slow cooker to make these stone ground grits overnight. They were delicious and ready to eat right out of the Crockpot. All I had to do this morning was scramble my pepper and onion eggs and cook up some […]
