The perfect pairing of chocolate and peanut butter is so wonderful, it has been exemplified in many treats from candy to cakes. But come summertime, when that sweet cold treat craving comes a-knocking and you want a chocolate peanut butter fix, whip up this super easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Milkshake like the old time diner does it.
This potato salad recipe developed by Chef Robert Del Grande of Cafe Annie in Houston, Texas, for the McCormick Gourmet Collection combines oregano, cumin, coriander, chiles and red wine vinegar to give this potato salad a big, bold Texan flavor that is the perfect compliment to any cookout menu spread.
Cherry Limeade is one of my favorite sweet drinks of all time. I don’t enjoy them often enough. Hitting the local drive-thru for a Cherry Limeade may seem like the thing to do. That is until you make your own at home with pure cherry juice and fresh squeezed lime juice. It’s hard to beat, and so easy to make too. An since you’re making it at home, you can make a large batch to share with your friends and family. It would be a great sweet drink for a pool party or to pack along for a picnic.
A delicious homemade Blueberry Pie sure hit the spot, but I found myself short on time (but not on berries) earlier this week and needed to quickly use some of the blueberries before they were past their prime. So I made this super easy homemade Blueberry Syrup. And when I say super easy, I mean super easy. Simple ingredients simmer together to create a beautiful sweet syrup that will take any stack of pancakes or bowl of plain vanilla ice cream to the next level. Or how delicious would warm pound cake with warm blueberry syrup drizzled over the top be? Oh my goodness, so yummy!
Anyway … that year we picked a bunch of blueberries, several bunches really. Many were frozen for using throughout the winter months in smoothies or oatmeal, but others were used in all kinds of goodness, from cobbler, to ice cream, to jam. But no pie. Not one single blueberry pie was made that year. And I don’t know why.
I feel a little silly saying I just discovered tea. Humans have been drinking it for thousands of years and it’s only the second most consumed drink in the world behind water. And I myself have enjoyed tea in some form every day of my life since I could hold a sippy cup. So I was already a fan of tea, however, what I just discovered was how to make tea much better.
This classic Macaroni Salad Recipe is a terrifically flavorful side dish that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser at any gathering all year round. Summer is the perfect time to break from the boring routine. Head out for a day at the park or beach and pack a picnic or make plans to gather together for a fun…
Potato Salad always reminds me of summer, picnics and fireworks, although I’m thinking this zesty and super easy Red Potato Salad is delicious enough to deserve a encore during the cold winter months as well. It would be as perfect alongside Roasted Turkey as it would be partnered with a Pulled Pork sandwich. This Red Potato Salad is full of color and flavor. This zesty side dish is a classic side that’s perfect for summer, but you may find craving it year round. Serve for your next cookout and see how many come back for seconds.
One of the great things about this snack recipe is that all the ingredients can be kept stocked in your fridge so you’re ready to go if a crowd of hungry teens happens to drop by, or if a last-minute occasion pops up and you’re in need of an appetizer to take along. These Easy Cheesy Mozzarella Bites are also the perfect savory snack for picnics or tailgating too (if they make it out of the house before being devoured).
Welcome my husband, Randy, again. He’s here to share a delicious hushpuppies recipe. Or is it hush puppies recipe? I grew up with them being known as hushpuppies, one word. However you write it, these little babies are the perfect side dish to serve at a fish fry, BBQ, or any excuse you can think of to make hushpuppies (or hush puppies). Take it away Randy!
These Sweet Potato Biscuits have the same flaky goodness as the traditional buttermilk biscuits but with the added flavor and texture that sweet potatoes can give to many baked goods. I began with my Flaky Buttermilk Biscuit recipe as a base and adapted it to create another version of a Southern staple. I think they’d be great with molasses, honey or cinnamon butter or even the bookends of a BLT. I don’t know about you, but a BLT sounds mighty fine to me.
As the weather gets warmer and and the days get longer, the best kinds of snacks are those that are refreshing and perky. This easy Lemon Cream Pie Dip Recipe is a terrific sweet snack for those warmer weather days. Made with only three simple ingredients, it is great as a poolside refreshment that won’t make you feel icky or like you’re going to pop out of your bathing suit.
Here in South Carolina we don’t always have the best selection of Alaskan fresh fish so when when the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute contacted me about sending some Wild Alaska halibut (the steak of seafood) to try, I was more than tickled. I knew exactly what I would make with it before it arrived at our door, but instead of a Potato Encrusted Halibut I prepared a Pecan Encrusted Halibut. Nothing but a simple coating with pecan bits, a quick sear, a visit to the oven to finish up and it was perfectly done in no time. I served it along with a mushroom risotto and easy Roasted Asparagus and it was just like being at Brick Street only I was barefoot. Try this one soon the next time you’re able to purchase Wild Alaska halibut. I think you’ll enjoy this a lot.
