Lemon Basil Potato Salad

Lemon Basil Potato Salad | Life, Love, and Good Food

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post, but as always my opinions are 100% my own. For those of you who are my faithful readers–I appreciate you, by the way!–remember when I mentioned that my life had been particularly hectic lately and I promised to share details later? Well, the big news is that after thinking and praying about […]

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Blueberry Streusel Muffins | Life, Love, and Good Food

Fresh blueberries in my fridge on Saturday morning called for baking these scrumptious Blueberry Streusel Muffins. The brown sugar-cinnamon-walnut streusel is layered along with the batter and then sprinkled on top of the muffins before baking, creating a little bit of spice and crunch both inside and outside. Right in the middle of mixing up […]

Italian Bread Pudding

Italian Bread Pudding | Life, Love, and Good Food

Italian Bread Pudding is a breakfast casserole like no other. Forget about using day-old French bread with this recipe. Instead, start with a package of frozen Mozzarella and Monterey Jack TEXAS Toast. You heard that right–Mozzarella and Monterey Jack TEXAS Toast. Crazy, right?  Cube the toast and layer in a casserole dish with more cheese, tomatoes, bacon, then top with the egg […]

Onion Rings + Spicy Dipping Sauce

Onion Rings + Spicy Dipping Sauce | Life, Love, and Good Food

For Father’s Day this past weekend, our family celebrated by grilling Dad’s famous burgers and frying up a batch of these crispy Onion Rings with Spicy Dipping Sauce. Oh. My. Gosh. They were absolutely delicious and a really big hit! The fun thing about serving these onion rings on Father’s Day was that I used sweet Vidalia onions from my father-in-law’s […]

Southwest Chicken Cornbread Salad

Southwest Chicken Cornbread Salad | Life, Love, and Good Food

If you saw my recipe for Mexican Cornbread Muffins earlier this week, you may remember that I mentioned that I like to freeze some of them when I bake up a batch (the recipe makes two dozen). Having them on hand makes putting together a big bowl of Southwest Chicken Cornbread Salad much easier and quicker! Of course, you can substitute […]

Mexican Cornbread Muffins

Mexican Cornbread Muffins | Life, Love, and Good Food

Moist and cheesy, and with just the right amount of spice, this Mexican Cornbread Muffin recipe makes enough for a crowd. Serve them at your next fish fry, chili supper, or soup night, or make a batch and freeze the extras for later — which is what I do. Honestly, this is the best recipe I’ve found for […]

Espresso Hazelnut Pull-Apart Mini Bread

Espresso Hazelnut Pull-Apart Mini Bread | Life, Love, and Good Food

My life has been a little crazy lately (I’ll share more about that in a few weeks) and last Saturday morning I woke up without a cooking plan. What that meant for this weekend food blogger was that I needed to think fast if I was going to stick to my self-imposed twice-a-week posting schedule.With so many things to do, […]

Best Chicken Salad

Best Chicken Salad | Life, Love, and Good Food

The Best Chicken Salad? Yes, oh yes, indeed! I was so excited to find this recipe on Food Network recently. Forgive me if I sound a bit boastful, but I do believe this really is the best chicken salad I’ve ever made! The secret to what makes it so good is using a combination of fresh […]

Grilled Pork Chops with Caramelized Peach-Onion Salsa

Grilled Pork Chop - Caramelized Peach Onion Salsa | Life, Love, and Good Food

This is one of those “sous chef accidental” recipes. Originally, I’d planned on making a grilled pork chop with grilled peaches recipe, but due to a little overcooking by my grill master, the peaches didn’t stay as firm as planned. Since there would be no plating peach slices with nice grill marks on this adventure and since I had […]

Cinnamon Roll Baked Doughnuts

Cinnamon Roll Baked Doughnuts | Life, Love, and Good Food

 For the last couple of years, I thought that Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts were in a marketing war of giving away free donuts for a self-proclaimed National Doughnut Day–wrong! Although it makes a lot of marketing sense for them, this sweet holiday (the first Friday of June) was actually established in 1938 as a fundraiser for the Chicago Salvation Army to help the needy and to honor the Salvation […]
