Chicken with Creamy Lemon Caper Sauce & Roasted Asparagus #SundaySupper

For most working moms, chicken is a staple. Whether boneless skinless, whole, or even nuggets, we all have it in our freezer, and let’s face it.  We have it, because we know our kids will eat it.  They’re programmed from birth to love chicken nuggets and many  are taught that any new protein, “tastes like…

Southern Sweet Tea Brined Chicken Biscuit Sandwich #SundaySupper

The real name of this sandwich was “Sweet Tea Brined Cornbread Crusted Chicken Biscuit with Fried Egg,” and the more accurate description is even longer. However, the sandwich itself, regardless of name length, is one cohesive, Southern-inspired, piece of heaven, and while it seems difficult to make, it’s actually quite easy. **My tip is to…

Father’s Day Fare: Cider Braised Pork Belly Tacos #SundaySupper

It’s Father’s Day, and unlike Mother’s Day, where pretty, lady-like meals are in order, Dad doesn’t want quiche and salads and tea sandwiches.  No, dad wants hearty, manly meals.

With 2 kids, who, at times, will complain about everything put in front of them, I need to use ingredients that they are guaranteed to like, while sneaking in healthy stuff like spinach, squash, peppers, celery.  While I don’t advocate lying to your children, bending the truth and playing dumb are perfectly acceptable. If my…

Sittin’ On A Sandbar Key Lime Pie #SundaySupper

March 20th was the official start of Spring this year, and what better way to celebrate than by whipping up some citrus treats! Key Limes vs. Regular Limes Being from Florida, we have an over-abundance of citrus, but it’s the tiny, tart Key Lime that takes center stage in this citrusy, spring treat.  However, Key Limes…

Mom’s Swiss Steak

Growing up, my mom would frequently make what she called Swiss Steak.  At the time, I had no idea why she called it that, because no part of it seemed “Swiss” to me.  Seriously, when I think “Swiss,” I think cheese and chocolate, and neither were in this dish.  The cuts of round or cube…

#SundaySupper Pork Chop Recipes: Bourbon-Mustard Glazed Pork Chops

Growing up in the south, I’ve eaten my fair share of pork chops.  Mostly fried and always overcooked, pork chops are a southern staple.  However, with USDA lowering the safe cooking temp of pork to 145°F in May of 2011, juicy pork is more popular than ever! For me, I still love a good bone-in…
