Summer Couscous Salad

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

What is couscous, you ask? To be completely honest, I’m not all that sure. I know it’s a grain, and a very healthy one at that. It’s commonly used in middle-eastern cooking if I’m correct. But the bottom line is, it’s practically one of the easiest things you can make, and it’s absolutely delicious. So […]

Ranch Dressing

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

There just are no words to describe my love for ranch dressing. I have always liked it, but my obsession with it started back in school when my best friend suggested I dip my french fries in it. At first it sounded awful, but needless to say, I was immediately hooked. Then I began putting […]

Fancy Schmancy Chicken Salad

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Chicken salad is one of those things that I could pretty much live off of if I had to. Then again, I’m a mayonnaise lover so it’s right up my alley. I love trying any new chicken salad recipes and this one has been a long time favorite of mine for about a year now. […]

Mae Mae’s Christmas Ambrosia

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

This is another one of those recipes that floods me with memories of my sweet grandmother, Mae Mae. When thinking of Mae Mae and the many things she always made at Christmas time, you can’t leave this recipe out. I remember boxes of fruit being at her house, but I don’t remember where they came […]

Nana’s Pear Salad

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

As a child, I¬†absolutely loved pears,¬†so my Nana would always prepare this salad for me. She’s a bit on the fancy side so she’d plate it up for me on lettuce leaves atop fancy china and let me use her real sterling silver cutlery. I’d eat up every bite that she ever fixed me and […]

Quick Chicken Salad

You know those days when you just want to throw together a meal and be done with it? Well this recipe is for those days. And to be completely honest it’s not so much a recipe, but more of a list of ingredients that you add to your liking. I actually came up with this […]

Mom’s Cucumber & Onion Salad

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

These are a Southern classic right here! Well, I say that they are. They may be an “everywhere” classic but I call them Southern because I’m from the South and my family has been eating this recipe for as long as I can remember. Cucumbers are one of those vegetables that are super easy to […]

Greek Pasta Salad

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

This recipe comes from my cousin, Kathy. You may remember a few of her recipes that are already on here like her Mandarin Pasta Salad ( If you’ve tried it then you doubt know how good Kathy’s recipes are. She’s a wonderful cook, and also a pretty sweet person. We’re pretty lucky to have her […]

Favorite Fruit Salad

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

I call this recipe Favorite Fruit Salad, because it’s just that…everyone’s favorite fruit salad. My husband is the only one that I know that has ever tasted this yummy treat and not liked it. But then again, he’s a little weird so that doesn’t surprise me. HA! Anyway, this is another simple dish that you […]

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Yep, you guessed it! This is another recipe straight from my famous Mae Mae! I’m sure that you are now catching on to how great of a cook she really was. I remember, with this salad in particular, she’d go through phases. She’d make it over and over for a couple of weeks and then […]
