Need Nachos?

Sometimes you just do, right? Well, at least I do. Here’s a recipe for the perfect nacho. My fam LOVES these. None of those only-the-chips-on-top-have-stuff-on-them nachos, either. Nope. Each chip has the same amount of goodies on it. And, in case you’re not a nacho person, here’s a book I found while touring Rock City last week. It’s helping me transition back into Southern culture after my 4-year stint in California. Be sure to read the fine print subtitle across […]

Pot Roast Redux: Kicked Up Another Notch

At our house, we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pot roast! And when I say “we”, I mean Big Daddy and the Diva. I am not a pot roast person, but I eat it when I make it because we eat “what’s put on the table” (it’s a rule), and I make it because they like it. However, we were eating at McAlister’s, which “they” also love (I’m seeing a trend here…), and I noticed they had a Pot Roast Baked […]

Fish Friday

It just wouldn’t be a week until we cooked something together, now would it? This week, the theme is fish. Now, I’m not a fish-y person. I don’t, technically, eat seafood. Of any kind. It’s a smell thing. You wouldn’t understand. However, these I will eat. Oh, and tuna salad. My mama made both for me when I was a kid, and they remind me of eating at the table with my mom and dad and my brat baby sister. Got […]

Yummy Chicken Casserole (aka Leftover Turkey Idea #1)

Thanksgiving’s coming, y’all!  It’s one of my favorite holidays for a number of reasons. Reason #1 Reason #2: the focus is on food, not on the commercialization of the holiday like my formerly favorite holiday, Christmas. I don’t have to worry about what to buy everybody and going broke. I only have to worry about the food…my favorite worry. Reason #3: Adam Sandler’s Turkey Song. Besides Amazing Grace, it may just be the best song ever written. If you’re like […]

The Diva Cooks: Creamy Potato-Corn Soup

Last time, she made Sausage Quee-chee while I sat on the couch and ate mellowcreme pumpkins. “We” felt like that little experiment was so successful, that “we” tried it again. She’s a cheerleader! She’s a photographer! She’s a southpaw chef! She’s the total package! Okay, so here’s the real story: a few days ago, she was sitting on the couch watching T.V. I had a hundred things I needed to do, one of which was make this very simple soup. […]

Tortilla Casserole: All the Ole! Less of the Lard

So, you get stuck at home for a day because you have a Sick Diva. Let’s just say. You realize the following: 1. You’ve known it was coming for awhile. It’s been building. The sore throat, the stuffy nose, the cough. It’s always the same progression. 2. You’ve been in denial. 3.  You’re lucky to have made it to mid-February without her getting sick so far this winter. 4. You need something to do to keep yourself from going crazy. […]

16 Cheesy Chicken Noodles

This one’s easy-peasy. And talk about your comfort food! It’s noodles. And chicken. And cheese. And some creamy stuff. What more could you want? And, no, you don’t have to count the noodles.  Since I didn’t have to count past 10, I just kept my shoes on. Preheat your oven to 350. Here’s what you need: 2 cups of cooked chicken: I bought tenders, put them in a pan, sprinkled some salt and pepper on them, baked them, then chopped […]
