Great Summertime Fresh Rustic Tomato Tart

This is a tasty meatless 
main dish, side dish, 
or even an enjoyable appetizer, 
using oval-shaped plum tomatoes.
The rustic look, for sure!
I use plum tomatoes more in winter-time cooking, when regular tomatoes are out of season, or whenever I make a dish in which I don’t want excess moisture.  They’re the thick-walled tomato that’s synonymous with Italy... 

Spicy Garlic-Lime Shrimp with Grits

Remember what Bubba Gump said?

"Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. 
You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, 
bake it, sauté it. 
There's uh, shrimp-kabobs, 
shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. 
Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried."

And then there's this dish that has all the right ingredients: ~ Spicy Garlic-Lime Shrimp!

Homemade Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Once you make your own dill pickles, you'll wonder why you ever bought them at the grocery store!

My pickles!

What wasn't to like about Aunt Bee from The Andy Griffith Show?  Remember her, and the "Pickle Story" episode from way back in the early 60’s?   (Most of you probably weren't even born then!)

Grilled Pork Chops with Spice Paste

Take a dry rub, add moisture and you have a paste.  The moisture component can be beer, honey, cider vinegar, bourbon, wine, molasses, or it can simply be vegetable oil, as in this recipe...

I would not have thought something as easy as a little paste spread on meat would work so well to create such tasty chops; it was a delicious surprise!

Memories with a Honolulu Cocktail

The best vacation ever, for me, was when Bill and I went to Hawaii!

I love Hawaii, I love everything about it!
