    IKEA Meatballs

    I’m not sure what makes these meatballs Swedish or the ones that IKEA serves and touts as Swedish, but nontheless, the are one of my favorites. I don’t care to eat them at IKEA, but I did have 1 once, and I made my own and love them. Eating out is not one of my preferences, especially at a furniture store. Just doesn’t seem natural to me. Here’s what I came up with ~ Print IKEA Meatballs Ingredients Meatballs 1/4 cup butter 1 medium white onion, minced 1 clove garlic, minced 1 1/2 t salt 1/2 t pepper 3/4 cup whole milk 1 T Worcestershire sauce 2 cups plain breadcrumbs…

    Finger Foods for the Super Bowl

    I’m thinking that The Super Bowl is the most popular time to serve finger foods-whether it’s going to be a party of 1 or a party of 100. I figure it’s easier to watch the game while stuffing your face with finger foods instead of trying to use a fork or spoon. None of these photos are mine-I got them from Pinterest, so simmer down. Some of my favs, no recipe needed for these ~ And for Dessert ~ Please follow and like us:

    Fried Pickles

    I’m not sure if fried pickles are a Southern appetizer or not, but we love them. The key is to not buy store bought pre-sliced dills but whole dills and slice them yourself. They are thin this way and make for crispy little dippers. For dredging, I used whole wheat flour, but you can use any type. For the cornmeal mixture, I used a combination of yellow cornmeal and a self-rising cornmeal mix from While Lily-but you can use just one or the other. Print Fried Pickles Ingredients canola or peanut oil for frying 1/2 cup prepared ranch dressing 1/4 cup sour cream 3 large whole dill pickles 1 egg, beaten…

    Crispy Chicken Wings

    When I originally thought of this simple recipe I baked the wings in the oven. Since then, the air fryer has come out, and I’ve switched to air frying them. You could still use the oven, but it’s faster air frying-only about 17-20 min or less in the air fryer. I shared my recipe with Just A Pinch, a recipe site, and here’s what they said about these crispy baked wings when they tested them ~ We loved these guilt-free baked chicken wings! They’re nice and crispy on the outside, but juicy on the inside. These wings aren’t too spicy, but pack a great punch of flavor. The added spices…
