No, this is not made with Lipton onion soup mix. This French Onion Dip Recipe is made with fresh onions and is so good you'll never make it from the box again (well, unless you are out of onions). Perfect for parties when served with potato chips or veggies. ...

Hot Blue Crab Dip Recipe

I cannot resist this dip when I make it, and looks like none of my friends can either! This Hot Blue Crab Dip Recipe is rich and complex and will fill your tastebuds demanding you have more. About 12 years ago, I went to Baltimore for a family reunion. One of the restaurants we went to, can't remember the name it's been so long, served up a delicious blue crab dip. Well, in true fashion, I came home and started trying to recreate the dip. I think with this recipe, I may have surpassed their dip. ...

Smoked Marinated Flap Steak Recipe

Sometimes I am in a rush and pickup the wrong cut of meat. I thought I was getting flank steak, turned out it was flap meat. Definitely a good mistake to make. Flap meat is very tender and seems like a mixture between skirt steak and filet. It isn't that popular, but if you find it, pick it up and try out this Smoked Marinated Flap Steak Recipe.  If you don't have a smoker, no worries!  Just grill it like you would a skirt steak. ...

Vegetarian Chinese Rice Cake Noodle Recipe

Asian Coleslaw Recipe

While passing through Santa Barbara while on vacation, we stopped at this amazing beach-side restaurant, Boathouse at Hendry's Beach.  The food was amazing and one of the side dishes was this delicious asian cole slaw (I think they called it Island Slaw).  We picked apart what we thought was in it, and came home and tried it.  This Asian Coleslaw Recipe is what we came up with from those trials.  It's very simple and easy to make and tastes so fresh and green.  Try it at your next family gathering, or just make a small batch for yourself. ...

Polish Sausage Heaven

I recently visited my sister in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and was reunited with my Polish heritage. I had forgotten how much I love good Polish food and was reminded when she took me to Pittsburgh's Strip District to a wonderful Polish Deli: S&D Deli. S&D Deli had the most amazing sauerkraut, sausages, cream of mushroom soup, and perogies. When in Pittsburgh, be sure to go there for your own Polish Sausage Heaven. ...
