Mom’s Spinach Bars

When I was a kid, I ate just about everything, that is, except potato soup when Mom cooked it and spinach in any form.  Maybe it is an acquired taste; but anyway, I love it now.  I think its great fresh in a salad; especially wilted salad, baked in a casserole or straight out of the can and heated up.  Fortunately, Bill likes spinach also.  But, of course, not everyone does.  This recipe of Mom’s might make a spinach lover out of those in your family that refuse it. 

Spinach has great color and looks so appealing when it is cooked.  This is a tried and true recipe, quick and easy to prepare.  Just blend the ingredients together, toss it in the oven and then prepare the rest of your meal while it is baking.  Easy enough! 

I have never added any kind of cheese to this recipe but, it would be a great addition.  I like it with a few more mushrooms.  Should you try it, just be sure to squeeze the water out of the spinach well with paper towels.  This is easy, easy and delicious!  I hope you give it a try and it turns you into a spinach lover too!

  1. Pam, just emailed this recipe to my daughter in Chapel Hill. She's a spinach freak like I am, and your recipe appeals to us both!
    Thanks. Love your site! Thanks for stopping by mine, so glad that you did, 'cause I'm really enjoying visiting yours!

  2. Wow! Thank you for all the kind words!

    I'm glad you like the recipe! I have used a whole 10 ounce can of mushrooms, drained well, in it. Like I said, it would be great with any kind of cheese add also.

    I'm so glad to meet spinach freaks like myself. It just proves "great minds think alike!"

    I really love that pup of yours and have always wanted a Corgi. They have character plus!

    Thanks again and I will be returning to your great blog also!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
