National Pasta Day Made Easy

Today is National Pasta Day. Pasta to me is an expression of all things Italian. Once upon a time, Hubby and I loved a little hole in the wall Italian restaurant. It was – how do I put this – reminiscent of a Speak Easy or Private Dinner Club run by the mob.

It’s Rotisserie Chicken Day!

Hey there Bubba, did you know that today is National Leave the Office Early Day? Yep. And it’s also National Bubba Day. Bubba is such a strange word. It’s usage could be cruel or kind. It’s all in the context and frame of mind.

One-Pot Lemon Chicken Rigatoni

Today is Soft Serve Ice Cream Day. Wish I had a recipe for Soft Serve to share, but Soft Serve really isn’t something made at home. True Soft Serve Ice Cream requires a Soft Serve Ice Cream Machine, something most of us don’t keep on our kitchen counters.

National Rotisserie Chicken Day and More

Hey there Bubba, looks like today is your lucky day. Yep, it’s National Bubba Day. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always associated Bubba as either a Southern Term of Endearment or a Slap in the Face, depending upon who is using it and how it‘s used. Turns out both are right.

Nil Sine Numine

Colorado’s state motto is Latin. What does it mean? It depends upon who you ask. Most say Nothing Without Providence, while others claim Nothing Without God. There is evidence that those who chose the motto meant Nothing Without the Deity, a general translation without a reference to a particular god. Now that could be a reference to Colorado’s Garden of the Gods with its beauty beyond compare.

Bacon Chicken Ranch Casserole

Maybe it was the whole Stay Home ordeal that make Casseroles come back in such a big, big way. Families gathered ’round the supper table just like the good old days. It sure has been fun. Personally, I’me glad that the Casserole is once again taking center stage. At my table, it never left.

Crescent Ring Chicken Pot Pie

Maybe it’s a mid-western thing, or a manly thing – one of Hubby’s favorite suppers is Pot Pie. He’s not particular, chicken, beef, turkey. He wants the sauce, the pie crust and lots of vegetables.

Sweet Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Crescent Ring

Hawaiian barbecue in December? Sure, why not. I hear tell people like to go someplace warm for the Holiday. Although truth be told, I cannot imagine Christmas on a beach. But then again, I’ve never had a white Christmas either. Damp, wet, foggy and always cold – that’s my idea of Christmas.

Lattice-Topped French Onion Chicken Bake

Do you love pretty presentations but either aren’t all that good at the detail work or wish it were far more simple? To me, half the joy of cooking is to put something attractive on the table. After all, we eat with our eyes and sense of smell long before that first bite.
