Don't you just love the bountiful vegetables of summer?  I certainly do!   Zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes and onions are stacked and baked ... yes!  I made a meal of this while hubby and my boys ate steak and onions I cooked in the crock pot.

Roasted Okra

I haven't always loved okra.  I would eat it once in a blue moon roasted in the oven, the way my Precious Mama and Grandma cooked it.   However, for most of my life, I despised it.  The sight of slimy green pods just didn't make my heart sing.  Fast forward .. I now put it in stews, soups, peas and beans, loving the flavor and the way it thickens whatever it is cooked in.  I also love Roasted Okra!

Alfredo Cauliflower

Have you tried Alfredo Sauce on cauliflower?  If you haven't, you really need to do so.   It is wonderful! The sauce is easily made while the cauliflower cooks.   Broken apart in pieces, or mashed, this could easily be a new comfort dish!

We love all the freshness of this bread.

Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes

If you are like me, you need an extra oven to bake your holidays dishes.  I recently decided to cook sweet potatoes in the crock pot, since my oven was occupied with a pork roast,  I was very pleased with the results.  They turned out perfect!

Alfredo Spaghetti Squash

Do you like spaghetti squash?  I have cooked it several times and ways, yet my boys would not eat it. ( They are getting so picky lately, something I definitely need to work on.)  I have tried salt and pepper, butter and parmesan, spaghetti sauce..nope, nothing from my twins.  This time, I decided to go with alfredo sauce.  Good news, my oldest loved it!  He pretty much likes any white sauce and white pizza, just like his Mom.  The twins, well, they were being pretty negative about trying a new dish.  I'll keep making it, next time..I'll start, making it simple with  a little salt, pepper, butter and parmesan.  Sooner or later they should like it, right?!

Southern Skillet Green Beans with Ham

As a Southerner, food is about the seasoning.  Seasoned with love and pork is just about all there is to cookin’ a great meal.  Y'all know, everything is better when there is pork in it.  Beans of every sort have a hunk, or pieces, of ham, bacon, salt pork or hog jowl.  This dish is a skillet stir fry of a Southern classic…Green Beans with Ham.  I used my new T-fal skillet, I received as a gift to review from Cooking Planit, to make this comfort dish. You can read my review for T-Fal here and for Cooking Planit here.  Enter my Cooking Planit T-Fal Giveaway!

Baked Potato Chip Crusted Onion Rings

Potato chips and onions rings meet bringing happiness all around. ~smile~  Try different flavored potato chips for unique onion rings!  Vinegar and salt.  Barbeque.  Sour Cream and Onion. Cheddar.  Chipolte.  Ranch.  The possibilities of flavored onion rings are endless!  Which flavor will you try?




Baked Potato Chip Crusted Onion Rings
Ingredients

2 medium to large onions, sliced thin and separated into rings
1 cup milk
1 egg
10 to 15 oz. bag potato chips, try different flavors, crushed
1/2 to 1 cup cake flour
seasoning, if desired

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Crush potato chips in processor or put in a bag and crush with hands.  Put in a bowl, bag or on a plate.  Carefully, slice onions into thin slices, separate into rings and put aside.  A mandolin works great for uniform cuts.   In another bowl, beat egg into milk.  Put cake flour in a bowl, bag or on a plate.  Make room on counter and line up: cake flour, milk and egg mixture, crushed potato chips, and greased cookie sheets.  Dip onion rings in cake flour.  Shake off excess and put in milk and egg mixture. Take rings out with fork, shake excess milk mixture off and put in potato chip crumbs a few at a time, pressing, or shaking bag, to coat. Onion rings may not be completely covered.  Put on greased cookie sheets.  Bake 10 to 15 minutes until crisp and golden.  Plate and serve.  Enjoy!

Oven Roasted Corn

Fourth of July, a fun day at the beach and splash park.  Hubby had the grill filled to the brim with leg quarters...just because we Love them.  ~smile~  I needed a new way to cook corn besides the every day, ho hum, boiling method.  I do love it off the cob and fried..mmmmmm!!!!  This is an easy peasy, roasted in the oven, with the husk on,  way to cook corn on the cob!  No prep work needed.   Yeah, I'll all for that!  It was so sweet and delicious, we didn't add a thing to it.  No butter, salt, pepper, garlic, herbs ... nothing at all.  Of course, you may want to enhance the corn by doing so.

Scalloped Mashed Potatoes

I was wondering...why we cook potatoes to mash,  pour off the potato water (Mama always saved it for Daddy to drink),  then add milk to the potatoes........

Sweet Potato Puffs

Oh, do I have a favorite holiday sweet potato dish for you!  Dessert or side, you decide.  It's an old one but a great one!  Cook as many sweet potatoes as you wish.  Sweeten to your taste with either brown or regular sugar.  Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, nuts....whatever you want to make it your own.  There really isn't a set amount of anything.   It's your old sweet potato casserole rolled up in a ball with the marshmallows hiding inside!!!

Spinach Squares

I love spinach but it wasn't until recently that I decided I did.  I despised it as a child and would refuse to eat it, turning up my nose and closing my lips tightly.  Now, I eat it weekly baked or raw, I want it!   One of my twins eats it raw..he loves salads!  The other two boys, well I'm working on them.  Trying new ways.  They'll come around..in time.

Such an easy meal to prepare.  Serve it with jasmine rice,  over Egg Noodles or with One Hour French Bread.  Any way you plate it, it is bound to be a hit!
