Yes, you read the title correctly: Chick-Fil-A’s chicken breast tenders AND McDonald’s french fries. I can’t take the credit for these two recipes, though, because I got them from elsewhere (keep reading). The reason I threw these two together for the same post is because they’re both fried – I figure that if I’m going […]

Yes, you read the title correctly – this recipe is for CHICKEN curry, not turkey curry, although you can make it with that, too. I’ve also made it with crab meat, and it’s totally dee-lish! I first tasted this dish as, “turkey curry,” prepared by a family member; I loved it so much that I […]

Here’s a recipe that I’m recalling from memory. If you’re looking for something light to eat that doesn’t require cooking on the many hot days ahead this summer, you’re sure to love this recipe! I found it on the back of a bottle of Heinz white vinegar twenty-odd years ago, and it was so good […]

Ah…shrimp! It’s one of my favorite crustaceans (to eat). My very first paid job was working in a deli that was famous for its amazing shrimp salad. Although I also worked the register, much of my time there was spent in the deli peeling it raw so we could boil it in Old Bay seasoning […]

This recipe is literally all over the Internet, and understandably so – it’s easy; it uses minimal ingredients and it’s oh, so tasty! The only drawback is that it’s somewhat time consuming, so you won’t want to make it every day. However, I think you’ll ultimately decide that it’s worth the extra time and effort […]

In addition to being a vanilla snob, I’m also a “ground beef snob.” Why are you a ground beef snob? you ask? Well, I’ll tell you why: Because I can’t stand gristle and bone fragments. It used to be that you could buy 93% lean ground beef and be virtually assured that, in addition to […]

This recipe is a specialty of my Dad’s (Poppy Joe), and it’s been a favorite of mine for years. It’s highly versatile, in that you can make it as an appetizer, a main dish (with nice, crusty bread for dipping and a fresh salad), or even a sub sandwich. The sauce is the secret to […]

I sure do hope that every Creative Eater out there had a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving! Now, here’s something else to be thankful for — the post-Thanksgiving Dagwood sandwich. Take a few slices of cold or warm leftover turkey breast, some heated dressing (stuffing) and some cold or room temperature cranberry sauce, put it all […]

Today’s post is a review of a recipe I came across a few days ago, which I prepared last night for dinner. The name of the recipe is, “Pan Seared Pork Chops with Cider Sauce,” which I found on KitchenDaily. Here’s the link: http://www.kitchendaily.com/recipe/pan-seared-pork-chops-with-cider-sauce-150112 It’s also worth noting that there’s a video for the preparation, […]

As promised, here’s the recipe for your leftover Slow-Roasted Beef. This recipe is a HUGE hit with my kids, so if you have any at home, they’ll probably love it! This recipe reminds me of a cheesesteak sub (hence, the name). The beautiful thing about it is that you can make it however you like […]
