I just re-made this dish and it was just as good the second time around! This time i simply served it over jazmati rice. Delicious!!!
This person recently followed my blog and when I looked at her site, WOW!!! The recipes look fantastic! It appears she is trying to raise money so she can start her own food truck! I would love do something like that myself, but it’s only a twinkle of a dream. But maybe by sharing this, I can help her achieve her dream! Check out her site and if you have the means, maybe you can help her in her fundraising venture! Good luck Country Girl!
This one is a very special post for myself. I have not posted any new recipe for a while … it`s because I`ve been working on something else. I did actually start a campaign to raise funds for my own business! Actually, you have no idea for how long I`ve been planning this. I don`t […]
I grew up eating grilled pork chops. It didn’t matter what season it was because we had a covered porch that was the perfect home for the grill. My Mom, well she LOVES pork chops. She would eat them every night if my Dad and I would have let her. Pork chops, pork tenderloin..you name […]
This upscale snack idea looks fantastic! It would be great with a delicious dipping sauce (e.g. Marinara, Alfredo, pesto, etc.) and could easily be kept a vegetarian choice.
This is great as a snack at lunch, or for sharing as nibbles with friends over a glass of wine, and can be varied depending on which pasta you use. It’s really easy but looks fancier than it is! You need: Packet of Tortelloni (any filling, I used spinach and ricotta) Olive oil Grated Parmesan […]
Roasting is one of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables. Quality time spent with some high heat in the oven transforms bitter, bland or even wilted vegetables into tender, slightly sweet and caramelized versions of themselves. In the case of turnips, the peppery roots become milder, soft and even a little crisp during roasting. The mustard […]https://whateverpieces.wordpress.com/2016/02/22/mustard-roasted-turnips/
I absolutely love sweet potatoes and love this recipe. You can take out the pineapple if you like, as I know some people do not like it. Instead of pineapple, you can substitute for brown sugar which is also good with a tiny bit of butter. This makes for a great healthy dessert too! Each […]

Looking for help or suggestions for your Thanksgiving dinner? The Food Network is showing numerous shows with a Thanksgiving theme that will inspire you with delicious recipes! The network has shows in a variety of formats from educational to competitive and almost all of them are showing Thanksgiving episodes.
Pretty much anytime I sit down to watch TV, I search through the network on my TV guide and set up the Thanksgiving shows to record.
One of the best shows I’ve watched so far is the Pioneer Woman’s Ultimate Thanksgiving. That girl does love her butter, but the recipes look fantastic and I know I’m going to be trying a few this year; Maple Whiskey Turkey and Very Berry Cranberry Sauce, just to name a few! Luckily, they are showing this show and some of Ree Drummond’s other Thanksgiving shows repeatedly, so you can search your TV guide on “Pioneer Woman” and still find showings.
Another great thing about this network is they have a very robust website. You can find many of the recipes shown in the episodes on the website. All of the recipes from the Pioneer Woman special are on there.
So check out the channel on TV or take a look at their website (foodnetwork.com) for some great Thanksgiving inspiration! I have AT&T U-verse and the Food Network is on channels 453 & 1453 (HD), but this might differ for you. They also have a great app available for your phone and tablets.
I hope you can find some additional Thanksgiving inspiration!
