Sometimes food just appears in my refrigerator and I only have a hazy recollection of making it. Even if I only made it a few days prior, which is usually the case since I also don’t like leaving food in the refrigerator a long time. Today for example, I surprised myself with leftover cinnamon rolls… rolls that I made just yesterday for a post next week. *sips tea, moves on* When this food appears, it must be used. This is how we get no churn vanilla bean lemon curd ice cream, magically appearing lemon curd.  (more…)

It’s finally officially warm here, darlings. I needed spring to arrive. I needed warm weather and sunshine, and fresh produce of the green variety. The Godfather and I aren’t “live in winter” people. We’re more like “visit” winter people, and while we didn’t really have “winter” per se this year, we couldn’t leave the house too often with a new little in tow.

Homemade Deviled Ham {Leftovers Recipe}

A classic in Southern cooking, homemade deviled ham makes a great sandwich spread, cracker topping, or mix in! This is a great way to use leftover spiral ham.

Use as a sandwich spread or topping for crackers or celery. Homemade deviled ham is ready in minutes *

Let’s take a moment to appreciate ugly food, darlings. Deviled ham definitely isn’t beautiful, but it is versatile, and delicious.

Her recipe for deviled eggs was to dump a can of deviled ham into some egg yolks, mash, and scoop back into the whites. Deviled eggs must have deviled ham, right? There was no google back then to search for and compare recipes for “authenticity”, so this seems like a plausible conclusion, right? (more…)

Asian Tuna Sliders

Easy Asian Tuna sliders topped with a creamy Asian slaw are a unique slider recipe ready in minutes! *

It’s time for another episode of “Things that Make Us Smile”! In this one, we’ll talk about mini foods, and Asian Tuna Sliders, because both definitely make us smile. Finger foods are always a favorite for parties and people with hands of all sizes. They’re fun in the way foods on a stick are fun, and mini sandwiches are very very fun. Asian tuna sliders will make us smile because I know that you, like me, love Asian flavors and tuna together. There’s a reason my Spicy Tuna Wraps are one of my top 5 recipes on this site, darlings.  (more…)

Let’s believe in celebrations, darlings. Life brings so many challenges it’s easy to forget to celebrate, and yet celebrate we should.
