Fried Plantains (Tostones!)Fried Plantains (Tostones) This recipe is easy and never fails to please. You may use green or yellow plantains for this, but refrain from using a plantain that’s beginning to show brown or black spots. That plantain will have too much sugar to make tostones and will burn instead of crisp in the oil. Try to serve them as soon as you can out of the fryer, but they’ll be alright for 20 minutes or so at room temperature.

Sour Cream & Bacon Chicken (Crockpot)
Sour Cream and Bacon Chicken for the Crockpot  Can be serve over rice, couscous, or wide egg noodles. 

Cool Ranch Deviled EggsCool Ranch Deviled Eggs  Looking for a fun way to add a little bit of zesty goodness to a classic summer picnic recipe? These deviled eggs look like a regular version of the traditional, but are stuffed full of savory Cool Ranch flavor.

Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño PoppersBacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers  Make Jalapeño poppers even better by wrapping them with bacon!

Black bean Salsa with Corn and TomatoesBlack Bean with Corn and Tomatoes  We have tacos and burritos a lot at my house.   Most of the time, we use traditional toppings and sides. This black bean salsa is a nice change from the regular bottled salsa and is much more hearty.

Slow-Cooker Coconut Ginger Chicken & VegetablesSlow Cooker Coconut Ginger Chicken and Vegetables  Chicken and vegetables in the slow-cooker is pretty predictable, I admit, but thanks to a fragrant spice blend and a good dose of aromatics such as ginger root and garlic, this dish sings with flavor. It’s mellowed out with rich coconut milk and served over steamed rice; comfort food at its finest.

Roasted Ranch Potatoes with Bacon and Cheese

Roasted Ranch Potatoes with Bacon and Cheese  Last year we traveled from Michigan to Arizona for our son’s college graduation.  We took a couple of days to travel into California to go to Legoland and due to our adoration of bacon, we made specific plans to go to Slater’s 50/50 (a bacon-lover’s paradise of a restaurant that we had seen featured months prior to our trip on a bacon-themed food show).  They grind bacon into their burger meat, offer a maple-bacon milkshake and serve bacon brownies!  It was heaven! And, by the way … it is wonderfully simple!

Baked Parmesan Paprika Chicken

Baked Paprika Parmesan Chicken “This easy recipe takes chicken breasts breaded with a Parmesan and paprika coating is baked until golden and crispy. This unique combination of ingredients makes a fantastic dish that all your family will love.”

Kentucky Biscuits Kentucky Biscuits  I love bread so when I get a hold of a bread recipe, I lock it up tight.  These are really good and are one of my favorite type of biscuits.  Note that I said biscuits, not rolls.  There is a difference!  I used to make these for the cowboys all the time and got pretty good “reviews” from them:)  With that said, here we go……..

 

baked zucchini sticks and sweet onion dipBaked Zucchini Sticks and Sweet Onion Dip You know that onion appetizer that came into bloom back in the late ’80s? Outback Steakhouse claims it invented the “Bloomin’ Onion” back in 1988, and it wasn’t long before quasi-fast food restaurants adopted it as the hottest appetizer since artichoke dip baked in a bread bowl.

These zucchini sticks, with their melty-soft interior and crisp crust, are reminiscent of those onions – and equally addictive, especially when served with their special onion-mustard dip.

Bacon Strip PancakesBacon Strip Pancakes  “Just about the best breakfast that ever greeted a hungry family! And it’s as easy as this: Shake up Aunt Jemima batter according to package directions. Place cooked bacon strips on the griddle and pour batter over each strip. Bake ’em golden brown on both sides. Couldn’t be easier – couldn’t taste better! How about Aunt Jemima Bacon Strip Pancakes at your house tomorrow!”
