Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Onion Gravy

A great revival in cuisine is taking place! Salisbury steak was a comfort food staple in the 50’s and is once again being enjoyed for its low-carb, high-protein diet that will have you “smacking your chops” in delight. My version is a delicious Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Onion Gravy! What makes Salisbury steak so delicious is not only the meat itself, but the delicious gravy that melts into the meat with a robust melding of flavors…

Savory Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and we definitely want to make it stress free when it comes to entertaining. Warm and delicious stuffed mushrooms is a favorite “go to” signature appetizer that is easy to prepare and an obvious crowd pleaser. There are many versions of stuffed mushrooms, but I believe this one is the best and will be an instant hit at any holiday event. While raw mushrooms are bland with an odd texture, once cooked…

Super Simple Spinach Balls!

I have been making these Super Simple Spinach Balls for many many years! My dear friend Karen gave me a spinach ball recipe way back when and, because the kitchen is my playground, I have taken her original recipe and “kicked it up a notch.” It was an obvious appetizer to serve for our Gr8 dinner with the theme “Gr8 Goes Green.” This is an easy recipe to prepare, freeze and have on hand for those…

A-B-C Apple Blackberry Crisp

A fruit crisp is one of those desserts that can be enjoyed any time of the year and as easy to make as ABC! This summer I made a peach blueberry crisp for Jurga and Tim’s Gr8 dinner. Today when I wanted to make another one, and although it feels like summer outside here in California, I realized that peaches were no longer in season. As I stood in the produce department and glanced around, I decided to…

DIY Holiday Gifts

Isn’t it Gr8 when the doorbell rings and a friend has delivered a homemade goody? Last Christmas we received a loaf of Chocolate Rum Cake from a friend, and boy was it heavenly! I remember the flavor to this day, chocolate-y, moist and just a hint of rum.   And we all know that it’s better to give than receive, right? So how about spending a day making DIY holiday gifts, some delightful and delectable…

Tender Fluffy Dinner Rolls for Company

Biscuits or dinner rolls, what’s your preference? Biscuits are casual and easy, mix some dough together and the baking powder does the rising work. Dinner Rolls are another beast entirely. And I do mean beast, a yeast beast! For years I tried to make dinner rolls, to no avail. They didn’t rise, or they didn’t brown, or they just didn’t taste good. What was I doing wrong?!?! Who knows? Then I dug…
