When it comes to Southern style side dishes, there isn’t an easier or tastier recipe around than this mustard potato salad recipe. Tender boiled potatoes are mixed with crunch celery, cooked eggs, and a creamy dressing in this classic southern recipe.
Because I’m a born and raised Wisconsin girl, you don’t see authentic, classic southern recipes from me very often. I think the closest I’ve come to that so far has been with my skillet bacon cornbread recipe. Even so, it wasn’t completely authentic because I added cheddar cheese to it. I mean, how could I not? I live in the Dairyland state.
Then things changed when the folks at Ovation TV, America’s only arts network, sent me information about their new series, Southern Uncovered with the Lee Brothers, I was super excited to tell you about it… and what kind of chef would I be if I didn’t cook you up something southern to go along the news, right?
Fortunately for me, my mom was born in Tampa, Florida, so there’s a little bit of southern blood mixed into this bod of mine. I took a trip with my mom down to Tampa to visit a relative of hers and we were welcomed with southern hospitality… and lots of food! Honey ham, corn muffins, collard greens, and delicious southern style mustard potato salad that tasted just like my recipe does.
Cucumbers, Vidalia onions, and a flavorful low carb garlic lemon vinaigrette make this cucumber salad recipe a quick, easy, and healthy side dish.
Brian and I enjoy fresh fish and seafood all year long, but most especially during the season of Lent, when we’re trying to reduce our intake of meat.
Shrimp, crab, and scallops are our favorites. Since Brian loves my shrimp scampi recipe I really wanted to try making a crab cake scampi recipe this year. Seasoned fresh lump crab meat, formed into patties, breaded and pan fried, then drizzled with a white wine and garlic butter sauce over pasta. That’s a yummi meatless dinner for sure!

There are thousands of cookbooks that have been printed. My goal is to find the best of them and then report my findings to you! If I find a dud, you’ll hear about that, too. Click here to read the review of the Tasting the Seasons cookbook, by Kerry Dunnington.
Is it cold in your part of the world right now? Dang, it’s been a cold winter for the majority of the United States!
It’s 20 degrees below zero as I type this, and there’s no relief from the cold in sight for at least another 6 weeks.
When a pile of the blankets and mittens doesn’t remove the shiver from my bones, I turn to warm comfort food for relief, and this warm, creamy homemade cream of tomato soup fits the bill perfectly. Top it off with the perfect grilled cheese sandwich that’s been turned into croutons for the soup, drink it with a mug of homemade hot cocoa, and I’ve just planted myself into comfort food heaven.
