I love traditions/beliefs that other people believe in and or follow, and am always up to join in and give them a whirl. When we moved to Florida years ago I learned of a southern tradition/belief I had never heard of until then. The belief by some that black eyed peas eaten at New Years will bring luck and prosperity for the coming year, but then that is where we get lost in the shuffle as they say. There are as many ways to eat them for this luck and pros...

This recipe was created simply by accident, no bread in the house, and truth be told, reheated French fries were originally used, but after that one time, moved on to  one of our favorite foods, home fried potatoes. My favorite way to make them is simply from leftover baked potatoes. I generally buy the biggest ones I can find, and do extras. However small ones work fine too, but I just like to peel them after they are baked, and less potatoes means less pe...

Oven 400

Time 15-20 minutes

Yup, you guessed it, I love stuffed mushrooms. I have made many and eaten many. Some great, some questionable, mine and others I have had. I am not your traditional cook, as you might have figured out by now, or not. Not only do I like to rummage through my recipe item possibilities at home, I also tend to shop the stores and create recipes as I cruise around with my shopping cart. As most of us do, I tend to go in with a couple it...

This is one of my favorite recipes, so simple a child could do it as they say, quick, easy, delicious, and if you get the items on sale, like I always do very easy on your pocketbook.

I have used both, precooked frozen shrimp, and or my own cooked from scratch shrimp for this, either way the shrimp is precooked to make this a speedy recipe.

Also, my Italian sausage, I use sweet, but hot can also be used, we are wimps these days on heat/spicy in our old age, I...

Oven 375 degrees Time 30 minutes

Stuffed pepper recipes abound and it is hard to turn down a nice pepper, chuck full of goodness, especially this time of year.

 There are all kinds of peppers these days even purple, and multi colored. I tend to gravitate to the colored ones, when on sale, just makes for a prettier dish, and I think the colored ones are sweeter in flavor. Just my thing. Also, they can be made a day or two ahead, then baked off when ready for t...

Oven 450 Time 1 hour give or take!

Yes, there are roasted vegetable recipes posted daily. Every combination imaginable has been tried, so basically a roasted vegetable combo can be suited to what your family likes, nothing wasted that way. Leftovers can be used in a lot of different ways, from salads to wraps to pizza topping (seriously) potato or rice topping to a side dish and on and on. A fun idea would be to let everyone pick our their favorite vegetable...

I will admit we do not eat a lot of pork in our family. No reason why really, but for some reason we tend to lean toward fish and chicken in our aging years. However, it could also be that I am not that great at preparing pork, seems like work to me for some reason. I do not really have the patience for things that have to be "watched" as I like to say, or tenderness can be gone in a nano second and now we have tough meat. I also have to admit I am not allo...
