Sprigs In A Blanket

So pretty, these Sprigs in a Blanket (good one, huh?) are perfect for a party appetizer or even a fancy but simple side dish for your Easter dinner or brunch. Almost anything wrapped in puff pastry is a winner, and my family found these wrapped asparagus lovelies to...

Mexican Rice

Before I talk about Mexican Rice, I'd like to tell you a little bit about Martha Dudley. Martha was a long-time friend of my late mother-in-law Pat, and she was known for her welcoming nature and amazing Mexican cooking. If you got invited to the Dudley's for dinner,...

Easy Lemon Zucchini Risotto

This Lemon Zucchini Risotto recipe is a flavorful combination of tart lemon and zesty Parmesan cheese. Because of the fresh lemon flavor, this particular recipe pairs well with salmon or other fish, but risotto is also a dish that is delicious served on its own. The...

I hate to admit that my usual method for cooking cabbage for many years was to just boil it. You can almost picture the limp, white, unflavorful heap of wet cabbage. Not to mention the unpleasant smell throughout the house. I'd try to bring out a modicome of flavor...
