Chocolate Fried Pie

Posted by admin on

s An old fashioned, made from scratch, chocolate fried pies has no equal. In the fried pie world, I have two favorites: Peach and Chocolate. For an amazing peach pie like my great grandmother made, you have to start with dried peaches. Fresh or canned just can’t pack the wallup of flavor that dried ones do. Click here for the peach fried pie recipe and if you want to watch me make them with Al Roker – just for kicks.

Alison Roman’s Seder table

Posted by admin on

By Alison Roman, The New York Times This is not the Passover article I was planning to write. I’d planned to write a peppy, service-driven piece on how to successfully pull off two days of cooking for a modern, secular meal. But over the last few weeks (and long after the development of these recipes, and their photo and video shoots), everything became … well, very different.

Chorizo Queso Dip is made from just three ingredients! This creamy, cheesy, gluten free dip recipe will be the hit of your next tailgate party

Posted by admin on

Sponsored by Red Gold® Tomatoes. Last month my parents, Ben, and I took the kids to a really fun place in town that has pickleball, arcade games, bocce ball, corn hole, and most importantly, a bar. What can I say, losing at pickleball to your 60+ year old Dad with two bad knees stings a little less when a server stops by to deliver Whiteclaws in between matches. This establishment also has a killer food menu with tons of gluten free options, including a half sheet pan of nachos which they call a “Sheet Ton of Nachos”. (Har har har.)...

These Crock Pot Baked Potatoes are WAY easier to make than oven baked – load them up with bacon, cheese, sour cream and chives for a full meal!  Jump to Recipe

Posted by admin on

Ingredients in crock pot baked potatoes Besides the Russet potatoes, all you need for slow cooker baked potatoes are the toppings you want to add. I also recommend adding cheese towards the end and melting it in the crockpot! Russet potatoes are starchy and known to be good for baking. They have a light mealy texture and fall apart after being cooked. They have a mild flavor and are the perfect blank slate for baked potatoes with lots of delicious toppings. Russets are also light and fluffy when made into mashed potatoes. How to make crock pot baked potatoes This...
