Buffalo chicken dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip

A friend made Buffalo chicken dip for happy hour at an RV park, and that made everyone who tasted it really happy. If you like Buffalo wings, you’ll love this.  Thanks to Judy Lyle for this crowd pleaser.  It’s easy to make with just six ingredients. You can heat it […]

 
Pear blueberry salad

Pear Blueberry Salad

Pear blueberry salad with mixed greens has been a favorite of mine for years, but it’s even better with baby arugula. The peppery leaf is a perfect compliment to the sweet fruit.  The first time I used arugula was when we stayed at the Ojo Caliente Mineral Spa and Resort […]

 
Breakfast Oatmeal Cookies

Breakfast Oatmeal Cookies

Prepare these breakfast oatmeal cookies and store them in the refrigerator. When you don’t have time for a bowl of oatmeal, heat a cookie in the microwave for twenty seconds.  You’ve got a tasty breakfast-to-go. Most of the time, I make these breakfast oatmeal cookies at home before an RV […]

 
Wichita salmon

Wichita Salmon

I suppose this dish could be called Salmon over Cannellini Beans and Spinach or something a bit more descriptive, but I’ve always called it Wichita Salmon. Years ago on an RV trip through Kansas, we ate at a restaurant in Wichita whose name I long ago forgot. After I raved […]

 
Sautéed Sugar Snap Peas

Sautéed Sugar Snap Peas

Contrary to the name, there’s no sugar in sugar snap peas. In fact, they are low in calories, high in fiber, and have numerous other healthy attributes. You can eat sautéed sugar snap peas with a clear conscience. This mildly sweet, crisp pea is delicious sautéed in Butter Olive Oil […]

West African Peanut Soup with Shrimp

West African Peanut Soup with Shrimp

Peanut butter and shrimp lovers will enjoy this tomato-based West African soup. Once when it was my turn to host my book club, I looked for a recipe to set the tone for the novel set in Africa we would be discussing.  I came across a West African Peanut Soup recipe […]

 
Roasted or Sautéed Carrots

Roasted or Sautéed Carrots

Carrots are versatile vegetables. The sweet, concentrated flavor and soft texture of roasted or sautéed carrots are quite different from the crunch of a slightly bland raw carrot in a salad. While I like carrots raw, roasted or sautéed, I must admit that cooking them seems to intensify their flavor. Baby […]

 
Pico de gallo

Pico de Gallo

When we were inn-sitting at Villa DeCary in Costa Rica, Nuria, one of the employees, taught me to make pico de gallo. She told me it should have equal parts red, white, and green, the colors of the Mexican flag.  These measures will get you close.  When you are done, […]

Risotto Cakes

Whenever you have leftover risotto, save it for risotto cakes.  Mushroom risotto makes especially good risotto cakes. Serve them as an appetizer, side dish or on baby arugula as a hearty salad. When I’m traveling in the motorhome, I occasionally use store-bought risotto, especially if I’m preparing other dishes on the […]
