For all the recipe experimentation I do, there are a few foods where I am a bit of a purist, and guacamole is one of them. It’s not that I don’t love to try different variations, but I always come back to my tried and true, my basic guacamole recipe. There’s no bacon, grilled anything, no extra steps, it would seem like a boring guacamole recipe to any “foodie” magazine, but this is my favorite way to enjoy guacamole. (more…)

I love pub food…the combination of a wide assortment of drinks, grilled and/or fried foods, and a good supply of napkins make up a fun environment for friends and family. And you know a good pub is worth coming back if your recommendation to others are the chicken wings. The crafting of a plate of chicken wings takes on many forms, whether grilled or battered and fried, naked or saucy, and with mild and sweet or hot and bold flavors. The variety lends to many ways to prepare and serve chicken wings, and each has its own legion of fans and critics. (more…)

Chimichurri deviled egg recipe - a unique and flavorful deviled egg recipe with NO mayo that everyone loved!

It’s no secret that I grew up in the South… Florida… which is a funny mix of Southern and international influences, resulting in a very unique culture blend, especially when it comes to potluck parties! I noticed this most at church potlucks and picnics. We would usually bring a rice dish or salad, something easy for my mom to make with 3 girls around, and there would be the usual assortment of potluck dishes, and then at least 3 trays of deviled eggs. I loved them, and couldn’t wait to try each version.

Most people just brought a basic deviled egg, some would make them with the canned deviled ham, but sometimes, you’d see a version that was a little more unique. As an adult, my love of deviled eggs hasn’t diminished, and I recently set about actually writing down my basic recipe and creating a few fun variations to share. The chimichurri deviled eggs were the hands down top favorite among the few families I had test for me.  (more…)

Crab Jalapeno Popper Dip

The best crab jalapeno popper dip I've tried! Super cheesy with just the right amount of crab and kick - a perfect easy party appetizer. Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

If regions of the United States were to be described in dips, this one would be the mid-Atlantic. Cheesy, with a mild kick, crab seasoning, and of course, a generous serving of crab baked right in, this crab jalapeno popper dip has football party written all over it. I’m really bad at following professional football if we’re going to be honest, but I do love a good dip at a halftime show party (that’s why you watch the big games too).  (more…)
