buffalo chicken dip

Super Bowl Sunday is upon us! Whether you want to be known as the hostess with the hostess or the guest with the best dish, this is it! (So you can plan accordingly–the chicken is made in a crock pot and then the dip is put in the oven in a baking dish.) I am a die-hard NY Giants fan! (Yes. Still. Even though our season was embarrassing.) Anyway, since I LOVE football, I would...

Recipe Review: Sweet Cornbread

I have never doctored the recipe (which is rare for me) because you don’t need to. And I owe it all to my friend Denise–who I think owes it to her sister–thanks! Enjoy! (Oh, and it goes perfectly with the fiesta chicken…) Ingredients: 3c Bisquick 3 eggs 1 tsp....

Recipe Roundup: Mashed Potatoes with Kale

Welcome to March! Since it’s still cold here, very cold, and there’s still a lot of snow on the ground–thought I’d kick off the month with some comfort food. And what says yummy comfort better than mashed potatoes? Giada DeLaurentiis is one of my most fave celebrity chefs–I even went to see her at a personal appearance and got my cookbook signed. Plus, I DVR her show every week. Which is where I discovered...
