Summer Squash Fritters

Summertime is one of the best times for produce.  There are so many wonderful things that come out of the garden–tomatoes, corn, watermelon, and squash are some of my favorites.  And it’s not unusual for me to crave them at any other time of the year either! Squash happens to be one of my absolute favorites.  There are a lot of different varieties, but the yellow summer squash is super versatile. While squash are delicious at least a dozen different {Read More}

Summertime Corn Salad

Ah, sweet summertime…when the weather is hot and the tomatoes are delicious.  I’m not really sure if it’s the sunshine or the dirt or what, but the flavor just can’t be beat.  Really and truly, there is just nothing like food fresh from the garden–no matter what kind it is! When summer rolls around, I start dreaming about a simple Summertime Corn Salad that my aunt used to make and bring to cookouts.  Although, it works fine in cooler weather, it’s {Read More}

Sort-Of-Like-Momma’s Cornbread Salad!

There are just some side dishes that are versatile enough to work with multiple meals.  Cornbread salad is one of these.  We’ve eaten it at Christmas with turkey, at Easter with ham, during the summer with ribs or burgers, and someone here might just eat it as a snack.  I won’t name names though. Cornbread salad is also one of those dishes that you can modify to your own taste.  Don’t like raw onions?  Substitute with chives.  Don’t have sweet {Read More}

Momma’s Simple Fruit Salad

Momma’s Simple Fruit Salad  I’ll forgive you if you sing “yummy, yummy” after you say fruit salad.  Seriously, I will.  Because we really can’t say the words “fruit salad” around here without someone singing it.  (If you don’t get that, then you have obviously never watched The Wiggles!  Look it up.) Some days I just crave fruit and vegetables and simple dishes.  And some days I want things “just like Momma used to make!”  This is one of those days.  Our eating {Read More}

Pineapple Au Gratin

(Here is an oldie-but-goodie that is pretty popular in our families!  It’s a great dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, or just because you like it!!) Well the Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone and I’m trying to get my Christmas Spirit in full swing. I’ve actually been on hiatus for a couple of days (in case you didn’t notice).  I wasn’t feeling well and honestly, I’m just tired.  I did manage to work on my Christmas decorating a little, but I’m {Read More}

My Favorite Squash Casserole

Lucky for my Momma, I was never a picky eater.  And I actually do love vegetables, even though I don’t eat nearly enough of them.  Of course, my methods of preparation may not always be the healthiest way to go…but they do taste soooo good! Squash has always been one of my favorite vegetables and it is one of those that I will eat just about any way you cook it.  It’s fabulous fried or grilled or sautéed!  One of my {Read More}

Creamy Corn Casserole

What do you make when you need something that can go from family comfort food to Holiday dinner?  For me, one of my go-to dishes is Creamy Corn Casserole.  It’s called a casserole, but it actually has more of a corn pudding consistency.  It’s warm and creamy on the inside, with just a little bit of crust on top.  And it’s oh so delicious! This is such a versatile dish.  It goes with just about any kind of entrée and {Read More}
