Beer Mimosas (Because We’re Classy Like That)

I do not understand people who say they don’t like wine, much in the same way I don’t understand people who say they don’t like cheese or chocolate or cats. But some people just aren’t into it, I guess. So while the rest of us are drinking mimosas, what are they going to drink? A […]

Do-It-Yourself Chicken Nuggets

If you have any picky eaters in the family, chicken is probably a common occurrence in your house. Take a break from the normal, store bought nuggets with these homemade, pretzel coated ones. Having control over the ingredients is always much better for you too, so you can feel better about feeding these nuggets to your family. […]

Poppy Seed Chicken Bake

One of my very favorite blogs is Six Sisters’ Stuff. I love their recipes because they’re tasty but also doable. So often, blogs have great recipes that just aren’t cost- or time-effective for the typical person. But on the Six Sisters’ Stuff blog, you always know you’re going to get a great recipe that doesn’t […]

Hoity-Toity Ham and Egg Cups

If you need a delicious lower cholesterol idea for breakfast or brunch, the ham and egg cups are the recipe for you. They look cute and it doesn’t take a lot of extra time. When my daughter Allison lived in northern Virginia, she wasn’t far from the city of Arlington which is apparently where all […]

Copycat Recipe: Chili’s Honey Mustard Dressing

Chili’s is one of my favorite chain restaurants, and 99% of the time I eat there, I get something that includes their honey mustard dressing dipping sauce stuff. Seriously, I request it even if the recipe doesn’t come with it. It’s goo on salads, on chicken, on burgers, on just about anything. So when I […]

Crockpot Apple Honey Pork Loin

Pork recipes make me happy. Apple recipes make me happy. So what could be better than a recipe that combines the two? And as you may know if you’re a regular reader, I love easy peasy recipes that I can get ready in the morning, stick in the crockpot, and forget about until dinnertime. So, […]

Hearty Mushroom Soup

The Hearty Mushroom Soup is an original recipe from Cathy Repp from Beaurgards Catering. We asked her to share it with everyone here at The PinterTest Kitchen and we’re so glad she agreed! I met Cathy when she was catering one of our events at Benigna’s Creek Winery. She occasionally makes some foods for the […]

Savory Cheese Truffles

I don’t know about you, but when you think of truffles, I usually think of chocolate. Not this time! I work at Benigna’s Creek Vineyard and Winery and during the month of March we have the wine trail (Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail) going on. We have food and wine pairings at each of the wineries […]

Make Potato Chips in Your Microwave!

Potato chips are my guilty pleasure. If I were stranded on a deserted island, I think that’s the snack food I’d miss the most. Yes, over chocolate. Just barely. I have two issues with potato chips, though. First, they’re really bad for you. Not only are they really fatty, but like all packaged foods, they […]

Low-Carb Crustless Pizza

I’m always looking for some low carb recipes. My husband is diabetic and has to watch sugar and carbs.  He LOVES pizza and pizza has a lot of carbs, especially in the crust, so I’ve been on the lookout for alternatives I pinned a Crock Pot Pizza recipe from Your Lighter Side that sounded pretty […]

Pulled Pork Enchiladas

I love, love, love anything with pork in it. Pork roast is probably my favorite meal, and whenever I see pulled pork on the menu, I have a hard time ordering anything else. So, when I saw this pin for pulled pork enchiladas, I had to try it out. While my pictures didn’t turn out […]

Party Time! Pizza Wonton Cups

With the Super Bowl coming up in a few days there are lots of parties being planned. I pinned this recipe from Taste of Home. The Pizza Wonton cup appetizer recipe can be added to your  list. Back in July I posted a Sausage Wonton Cup recipe that is very similar just using some different […]

Crispy Green Bean Fries

As I’ve noted in past posts, I’m not the biggest fan of veggies. This problem is most pronounced when I’m cooking dinner for other people. This past December, I planned a dinner party for 13 people, so I neededsomekind of vegetable dish. What to do, what to do… Make them as unhealthy as possible, of […]

Pennsylvania Dutch Chicken Pot Pie

If you think pot pie is a baked vegetable and meat dish topped with a pie-like crust, you’re wrong. Sorry. Hehe, just kidding. Where I grew up, though, pot pie was something very different. It’s not a baked savory pie, it’s actually a very thick stew-like meal with huge noodles, potatoes, meat, and veggies. It’s […]

The Best BBQ Meatball Recipe of All Time

These BBQ Meatballs are our favorite meatball recipe of all time. I usually make three or four batches at once and vacuum pack them for the freezer. It’s nice to be able to get some out whenever you need an easy meal. My husband really enjoys this meal, so we made them fairly often. Allison’s […]

“OMG” Sour Cream Chicken

For those nights when you just don’t know what to make or are dealing with picky dinner guests or just don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen…this is the perfect recipe. When I saw this recipe on Pinterest, it was simply called “OMG Chicken.” I’ve taken to calling it Sour Cream Chicken, since that’s […]
