A Christmas Favorite
Regardless of what you think about Ms. Paula Deen these days, her mama’s divinity is really all you have to make when it comes to holiday “cookies”. Divinity, also known as divinity fudge, is a sweet candy confection composed primarily of sugar, but don’t let that fool you. Though the candy appears to look like meringue, complete with curled peaks. The texture of the candy is light and fudge-like.
Ms. Deen’s Mama’s Divinity is dotted with pecans throughout, and my take on her recipe is no exception. I’ve also added cherries to the mix due to my personal love of cherries and because they add a little festive color to the decadent Christmas treat...Read More
These herbed fingerling or other small colorful potatoes are are so easy to make, relatively healthy compared to most mashed alternatives, and VERY delicious.

Where I come from there is a specialty sausage sold called “cudighi”. It resembles some spicy Italian sausages, but really, the flavor stands on it’s own. I’m choosing to describe it here as peppery (as in black pepper) and sweeter, due to possibly an increased amount of fennel. Anyway, it’s fantastic and you have to try it for yourself.
Recently, I made Cudighi Lasagna for my dad. I will definitely be making it again. Please see the included recipe. WARNING: This recipe will take you the better part of an afternoon to make – totally worth it! BONUS: The included recipe makes more sauce than you need to prepare the lasagna. Freeze the extra sauce and serve it over pasta at a later date. Yum!
If you’d like to try cudighi for yourself, I recommend calling Mama Russo’s at 906-485-5250...Read More

Yes, you read that right. The “cream” is pudding like in consistency so, of course, feel free to eat it sans crepe. Peter and I each ate 3 cream filled crepes and we were very well satiated to say the least. There was enough cream leftover for another serving.Grocery Girl Banana, Pecan, and Coconut Cream Crepe Filling2013-07-18 15:58:06Serve this delicious pudding style cream as dessert or for breakfast within crepes.Prep Time15 minCook Time20 minTotal Time35 minPrep Time15 minCook Time20 minTotal Time35 minIngredients

What that character known as the Easter Bunny eats while visiting Hawaii over Christmas.
I needed to use up some carrots. Also, I happen to really like bread pudding (If you haven’t noticed.) and pineapple bread pudding is pretty top notch in general in my opinion. Springtime makes me want pineapple. (This is not the case for my husband, Peter, but he stated of this tested recipe, “If it weren’t for the pineapple, I’d give it high marks.”)
This bread pudding does NOT need to rest in the fridge overnight. You can make it right before the meal. Also, for people who don’t care for the soft texture characteristic of most bread puddings, the carrot lends this dish a bit of a bite. Enjoy!Grocery Girl Pineapple and Carrot Bread Pudding2013-06-15 15:34:55A sweet and economical dish...
I like grilling as much as the next girl. Which is to say, I have yet to change-out the gas tank on our grill… so, I made pork “satay” using a saute pan the other night. Also, I didn’t skewer the pork, so it wasn’t really satay. I have to say, I’m very pleased with the way it turned-out. The pork was tender and flavorful. And of course, if you’ve ever had the satay version, you know the sauce is delicious. The medallions cook in a jiffy, although if you’re using one medium to large sized saute pan, you’ll have to cook them in batches. Still, they only took me about 15 mins. to cook once pounded and marinated. I served them with jasmine rice and edamame.Thai Pork Medallions with Peanut Sauce2013-05-16 17:20:23Serves 4Prep Time1 hr 15 min...
I could have very easily called these quiches: Recently when I visited my Dad, he really wanted quiche and this is what we had on-hand, quiches. But that didn’t appeal to the practical side of my nature. So, alternatively, the above name is not only shorter, but it also references the quiches’ light, yet still savory quality. Consider making these quiches for Mother’s Day served along with the accompaniments of your choice; think veggie or regular sausage links, fresh fruit, bacon etc.Grocery Girl Quiche: Spinach and Red Pepper (Makes 2 Quiches)2013-04-30 18:06:50Serves 8Light and yet, still savory quiches.Cook Time40 minTotal Time1 hr 20 minCook Time40 minTotal Time1 hr 20 min...
