Buffalo Spicy Chicken Tenders

While these Chicken Tenders might not look like your typical Buffalo Spice Chicken, believe you me they bring on the heat. There’s heat in the flour coating, buttermilk dip and Panko breading.

Wow Them with a Gobble Cheese Ball

If this Turkey Cheese Ball seems familiar, you are right. I shared him with you a few years back as part of an ensemble of Thanksgiving Appetizers. This particular appetizer has evolved over the years. He deserved his own spotlight.

Christ the King Sunday Supper

Today is the Feast of Christ the King. Christ the King Sunday is recognized by both Catholic and Protestant Churches. That said, I can only share my Catholic understanding and perspective of the day. I am not familiar with the traditions of Christ the King outside my own faith, although I would love to learn.

Presentation of Mary in Three Courses

Today is the Feast of the Presentation of Mary. If you are a Christian, you accept the existence of Mary, his mother. After all, without her there would be no Christ and no Christian Faithful. While some view Christianity as dominated by men, it began with a woman.

Let Us Give Thanks

Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is less than a week away. For some of us in America, Thanksgiving might look and feel very different. While some are comfortable traveling again, others are leery of venturing outside the safety of our own backyards. Many are downsizing their holiday gatherings and even hosting a Virtual Thanksgiving with family attending via zoom.

It’s National Macchiato Day!

Good Morning Everyone! Welcome to National Macchiato Day! I gotta tell ya, up until a year ago I had no idea what Macchiato was. Turns out, I’ve been drinking it for years.

A Surprise for Apple Cider Day

Today is National Apple Cider Day. My first instinct was to give you a recipe for Hot Apple Cider and call it a day. But that would be far too easy, don’t you think?

Say Happy Birthday with Tamale Skillet Pie

On the National Day front, today is National Baklava Day. Personally, I think Baklava Day should be celebrated in December. It’s one of my favorite Holiday Baking projects every year, a tradition in our house. Today is also Homemade Bread Day. What is better on a cold day then the smell of bread baking? Yum!

Can You Guess What Day It Is?

If you guessed National Fast Food Day, then you’d be right. Today is the day we celebrate all the flavors and convenience of Fast Food Dining. You can use the drive-thru to get your fix or get out of your PJs and dine-in.

Sunday Game Hen Supper

Recently I had a chat with my Dad about chickens. I know, seems like a strange subject. We raised chickens when I was a kid, for their eggs. As far as I know, we never actually ate the chickens we raised, but I suppose that’s possible.

Carnita Asada Fajitas

Today is National Spicy Guacamole Day. (Not to be confused with Guacamole Day in September). I suppose I could have shared a recipe for Guacamole to serve with freshly made tortilla chips and called it a day. But Guacamole is so much more than just a dip. It’s a condiment for all sorts of delicious dishes like Fajitas.

Celebrate Autumn with Kindness

In the past, sometime around mid-September, I’ve shared a Harvest Supper to celebrate the transition from Summer Entertaining to Autumn Suppers. It dawned on me that the whole craziness of 2020 put a kink in things. Maybe it’s been all the rules and regulations surrounding family time and socialization, or maybe it was because this year was unseasonably warm in September. Autumn just wasn’t in the air.

Hold the Anchovies Please

Today is another National Pizza Day. It’s National Pizza with The Works Except Anchovies Day. Wow, that’s more than a mouthful. It’s also French Dip Day and Chicken Soup for the Soul Day. While French Dip is definitely a Food Holiday, Chicken Soup for the Soul has nothing to do with soup.

Honoring Our Veterans on Their Special Day

As it happens, Veterans Day and National Ice Cream Sundae Day fall on the same day. Last year I opted to ignore Ice Cream Sundae Day and went with a Yankee Pot Roast Supper with an Apple Pie Dessert. I know, pretty cheesy.

Some Like It Hot

When I made this one-skillet supper for the first time, it was the week of our daughter’s Celebration of Life Gathering. As you can imagine, my thoughts were elsewhere. So rather than tinker around with a new recipe, I was on autopilot and followed the recipe to the T.
