Elk Chili Con Carne

Elk Chili Con Carne and Sweet Chile Cornbread for lunch! And then dinner! And probably lunch again tomorrow! It tastes even better the next day! You can also use ground beef or Italian sausage instead of elk, I just needed to clear some room in my freezer. 2 ½ lbs Ground Elk Sausage 1 teaspoonContinue reading “Elk Chili Con Carne”

Cajun Spice Crab Cake

First time I’ve made crab cakes and I’m definitely making them again! The meat was a bit spendy because I didn’t want to use Krab, but it was worth it. I tried a new way of preparing French fries and its my new go to! 1 lb Cooked Dungeness Crab Meat 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs 2Continue reading “Cajun Spice Crab Cake”

Mardi Gras King Cake Pancakes

Happy Mardi Gras, everyone! I made King Cake Pancakes and a King Cake Egg and Sausage Sandwich for breakfast. The cinnamon and maple syrup went so well together! Sweet with a bit of spice. You can’t go wrong with that combination! Mardi Gras King Cake Pancakes • 1 1/2 cups Flour• 3 teaspoons Baking Soda•Continue reading “Mardi Gras King Cake Pancakes”

Southern Red Beans & Rice

One of my favorite southern side dishes! It goes great with dirty rice or, for a healthier alternative, brown rice. Not only does it make a great side dish, but it’s hearty enough to have as a main dish too. • 1 lb dried Kidney beans• 1 Tablespoon Bacon Grease• 1 large White Onion; chopped•Continue reading “Southern Red Beans & Rice”

Pan Fried Pepper Hash Browns

Fresh hash browns are so much better than the ones you find in the freezer aisle. The store-bought ones are typically deep fat fried, but pan frying or air frying your own is healthier and fresher. French toast with berry syrup, baked bacon, scrambled eggs and hash browns! Those hash browns were awesome! Pan FriedContinue reading “Pan Fried Pepper Hash Browns”

Sweet Onion Pie

I am not a pastry chef or even a baker, so please bare with me. If you see something I can improve on, please let me know! The baking times were for my little 5” pie, so longer cooking times will be needed for larger ones. Sweet Onion Pie 2 large White Onions; thinly slicedContinue reading “Sweet Onion Pie”

Italian Breaded Chicken Cutlets

I love chicken cutlets! Deliciously crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside; they can’t be beat. They go especially well with steamed vegetables and creamy Fettuccine Alfredo. They fry up so fast that you can prep them the night before and have dinner on the table in 20 minutes! Italian Breaded Chicken CutletsContinue reading “Italian Breaded Chicken Cutlets”

Honey Dijon Pot Roast

The Honey Dijon Pot Roast with Rosemary Root Vegetables and Gravy I made for dinner last night turned out great! ❤️ Sweet, tangy and the Rosemary was absolutely delicious. I switched the recipe up a bit and decided to make a gravy out of the beef drippings. Honey Dijon Pot Roast 3 lb Chuck RoastContinue reading “Honey Dijon Pot Roast”

Creamy Corn & Potato Bake

I decided to invent a new scalloped potato recipe! This one has bacon, caramelized onions, parmesan cheese, Italian herbs, garlic and…corn? It went great with the slow smoked Baby Back Ribs, Baked Macaroni & Cheese and Fried Cabbage! Creamy Corn & Potato Bake 2 Large Potatoes; thinly sliced 1/4 cup Butter 1 cup Onion; thinlyContinue reading “Creamy Corn & Potato Bake”
