Dark chocolate and berries come together in this delightfully light and fluffy salad! Is Dark Chocolate Berry Salad a salad or a dessert? It’s up to you! 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. I needed to figure out something else to make for our family picnic, and didn’t want to run all over town looking for ingredients, so I came up with a
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. Then I chop up all the leftovers and divide it into freezer bags, and it makes for simple dinners later on. One of those delicious dinners is Ham Fried Rice. After eating fried rice at a local restaurant not too long ago, I found that I really liked the way their ham fried rice was prepared. It had
These slow cooker mushrooms are quick and easy, with just 3 ingredients! As a kid I hated mushrooms. That seems to be a pretty common childhood hatred, from what I’ve seen.

This recipe for slow cooker mushrooms is so easy! They make a delicious, flavorful appetizer, or you can slice them before cooking and serve them over grilled chicken or steak– so good! And with
Broccoli Bake is a great side dish! Delicious and creamy, cheesy broccoli. Several years ago my mother-in-law asked me to bring a broccoli casserole to a family gathering. 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
Roasted Broccoli is a wonderful alternative way to prepare broccoli. It has a great nutty flavor that pairs well with the lemon & Parmesan. I happened upon a recipe for roasted broccoli a few years ago. I’ve never been a huge fan of boiled broccoli, but this roasted broccoli is SO good.

It has a variety of flavors that blend well. Roasting the broccoli brings out the
