My sister-in-law makes a Pistachio Pudding that’s delicious and super easy! I got the recipe from her, and have made it several times, but right before the 4th of July when I went to the store they were missing one of the ingredients.

Nutty Broccoli Salad is the perfect BBQ side dish. It has great flavor and textures. The dressing gives it a little bit of creaminess. Today has been one of those days. I had a plan for the day and then my boss called. She had a different plan for my day. And that’s the job that pays the bills, I needed to go with her plan. But after working like crazy all day, I am feeling a little nutty. Some software I was using wasn’t working with me and would crash about every 15 minutes or so. Thankfully, I got
Inspired by a local Thai restaurant, this Ham Fried Rice is delicious! I buy a ham several times a year. I don’t buy it often, but when I do, I bake it and we eat a dinner with slices of ham.

I didn’t have any recipes for one, so I started looking and found a recipe that turned out delicious after the alterations I made for what I had on hand. This broccoli bake can be made with frozen broccoli, but I prefer fresh– you do whatever works best for you! If you prefer frozen broccoli, thaw it before following the instructions.

Peas, Cheese & Pickles is a great side salad that changes things up from a green salad. Great variety of flavors and textures. As a kid my mom made Peas Cheese and Pickles. I thought this was a family recipe and that no one besides our family had ever made it. I had never seen it in a restaurant. I had never had it at a friends house. It was just something we only had at home. Then I moved to Texas. Pea salad was something available at all the BBQ restaurants. It was a little different than mom’s, but
