Fully Loaded Hot Dogs

If we were to play an impromptu word association game with the word beanie weenie, I bet I could guess your word. Is it ketchup? Ball game? Cheap? Can? Kid food? Fatty? Or did you just crinkle up your nose? Come on, don’t be snobby. […]

Chili Lime Chicken with Mexican Street Corn Salsa

Chili Lime Chicken with Mexican Street Corn Salsa

Chili Lime Chicken with Mexican Street Corn Salsa is a meal I’ve been dreaming about making for a while now. Mexican Street Corn has become my absolute favorite food. Period. I crave it constantly. I’d eat it every day if I could. I blame Millie’s […]

Summer Baked Beans-Looks Aren’t Everything

Summer Baked Beans-Looks Aren’t Everything

Granny’s Summer Baked Beans are packed with flavor, and they are so much more than just a hill of beans. But I have come to find out they are not the most photogenic dish in her recipe box. Flavor doesn’t photograph, which is unfortunate for […]

Antipasto Pizza – The Pizza Topping to Top all Toppings

Antipasto Pizza – The Pizza Topping to Top all Toppings

Antipasto pizza – a pizza with salad as its topping – might sound like a complete oxymoron. But think about it. Antipasto pizza is really just a delicious pile of veggies, meat and cheese that you scoop into your mouth with a crispy, yummy crust as the vehicle rather than […]

Ham and Veggie Salad with Salsa Vinaigrette – Hi Hammy

Ham and Veggie Salad with Salsa Vinaigrette – Hi Hammy

This ham and veggie salad was quite the pleasant surprise. This is a don’t-judge-a-book-by-its-cover situation. It is not much to look at, but I can promise you it is worth a try. I love ham, but I really only considered it a holiday meat, or […]

Pesto Pasta-A Summer Flavored Pasta Salad

Pesto Pasta-A Summer Flavored Pasta Salad

Picnic season is right around the corner! For some people, anyway. My New England picnic would have to include layering up, wearing knee socks, hot chocolate, and a thermos full of soup. Or I can keep making and devouring Granny’s pesto pasta. Despite my love […]

Stir Fry Salad – The Best Salad ‘Overall’

Stir Fry Salad – The Best Salad ‘Overall’

Who even knew you could stir fry salad? Granny had a binder of recipes in addition to her main recipe box. This recipe was on the very last page of the binder, and I initially thought that was a good place for it. I thought […]

Hamburger a la Charlotte – My Favorite Meal-in-Law

Hamburger a la Charlotte – My Favorite Meal-in-Law

This week we are doing a fun twist at Granny’s Recipe Box! My mother-in-law, Betsy and my sister-in-law, Sarah were in town for Easter, and we thought it would be so fun to do a recipe from their side of the family. So this week, we present […]

Creamy Carrot Soup-A Spring Time Soup

Creamy Carrot Soup-A Spring Time Soup

Think Spring! Are you imagining a thick and creamy carrot soup?  Me neither. We are in the middle of a huge snow storm as I type these words. And last week’s nor’easter left us cold and in the dark for two days. Thinking Spring is hard […]

Mashed Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie – More Flavor, Less Calories

Mashed Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie – More Flavor, Less Calories

Shepherd’s pie, I now realize, is the food equivalent of the cliché “he’s not especially good looking, but he’s got a great personality.”  And if this version – Mashed Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie – were in high school, it would definitely be voted best personality. It […]
