David Venable’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

This is another wonderful dessert from QVC host David Venable’s COMFORT FOOD SHORTCUTS cookbook. I have to warn you while this will look like cookie bars when it is baked you will want to take a smaller slice than you think, it is very very rich. Pre heat the oven to 325, move the oven…

Air Fried Buffalo Wings

Time for a classic with a modern twist. Who doesn’t love classic Buffalo Wings? Buffalo wings were created Teressa Bellissimo on March 4th 1964 at the now world famous Anchor Bar in Buffalo New York. Buffalo wings are typically unbreaded wings deep fried and tossed in a cream sauce of butter and hot sauce. I…

Pork Loin filled with Bacon and Stuffing

This week I had intended to make a nice pork roast for dinner so I had a pork loin thawed and ready to go for the roast but decided to take it in a different direction. It had been a while since I had the smoker going, about four days, so I decided to smoke…

Ritz Fried Chicken

This week I decided to do some fried chicken thighs in the air fryer. I typically like to do a pickle juice brine when I do fried chicken in the air fryer so it is like a combo fried pickle and fried chicken. This time the fried chicken was kind of a last minute thought…

The other night I was making smoked pork chops and our typical sides of green beans and boxed stuffing. Lately we have been in a bit of a rut as far as our side dishes are concerned. Now I love the flavor combination of the stuffing, beans and pork, but I wanted to try something…

Skirt Steak with Teriyaki Mushrooms

I know I did a skirt steak not long ago but as I said in that post it is a great cut of meat. This is my go to recipe for a marinade with skirt steak.  This marinade has gone through several changes over the years but this is the version I have stuck with…

Purple Cow Milkshake and Hot Dogs

Way back when, when I was a small child my grandparents, Gram and Baba, lived in a town outside of West Chester PA which is about a half hour outside of Philly. I would spend several weeks during the summer with my grandparents and they would take my cousin and I to the King of…

Cashew Fried Chicken

As I said before I have been pulled into the air fryer craze.  If you don’t have an air fryer you should seriously think about getting one.  It takes all of 2 minutes to preheat, can do everything your toaster oven and oil fryer can do plus more. Now this recipe is one I have…

Smoked Tri-Tip

This weekend I decided to give a California style BBQ a shot.  I had a nice Tri-tip which is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin.  It is a very lean cut with not a lot of marbling that grills like steak, slices like brisket. Has the beefy flavor of sirloin, and is somewhat…
