Beef & Wild Rice Casserole

This is a recipe I found in an old church recipe book that my mother had in her cookbook collection which I inherited.  It ended up being real comfort food on a night when I guess that’s what My Number One Fan and I needed most.  The cookbook was one of those where parishioners contribute

CInco de Mayo Pork Chops over Cilantro Rice

  Here’s a simple way to make tough thick-cut pork chops fork-tender with a Mexican flavor profile.  I needed to find a recipe for a couple of disappointing pork chops that I knew needed a long braising time.  It just happened to be Cinco de Mayo, and I put together this recipe based on several

Kitchen Tapestry: Chicken Divan

No one will ever be able to truthfully use the adjectives of “Original”, “Classic” or “Traditional” with their recipe for Chicken Divan because the chef that created it took his recipe to the grave.

Weekday Chicken in the Oven Recipes

People run pretty hard during the week and so, given the incredible versatility of chicken, it isn’t surprising that just about everyone has at least one, if not several, go-to chicken recipes that can be prepared quickly and popped in the oven for an easy weeknight supper. Here are a couple that we’ve been making

Potluck Chicken & Rice Casserole

This dish reminds me of those potluck suppers I used to have to go to as a kid.  There would invariably be a good twenty-percent of the total available casseroles dedicated to just chicken and rice, along with chicken-noodle, tuna-noodle, lasagna and green bean casserole.  The great thing about this dish is that there can
