Roasted Ranch Potatoes with Bacon and Cheese Okay. I realize that several of my recent posts have included bacon in some form or another. On one hand, I think it is partly due to the fact that a couple of weeks ago my grocery store had a killer deal (half off!) On the other hand, I'm wondering if all the recent talk in the news about a pending bacon shortage has me scrambling to enjoy this salty, porky food as much as possible. Honestly, however, let's just admit that bacon is just so darn tasty! Last year we traveled from Michigan to Arizona for our son's college graduation. So, when I came across this recipe on's website, it appealed to me in every way! And, by the way ... it is wonderfully simple! NOTE: I have shared this recipe on My Recipe Magic, which calculates the nutritional value. 2 pounds potatoes (unpeeled, washed and cut into chunks) 1/2 cup ranch dressing (bottled, not packet) 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for topping (if desired) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spoon into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.

Seasoned Roasted Potatoes Things I’m into right now: Eye cream Champ Cones Ann Taylor Loft sales Patios Humidity Shorts Oil of Olay Moisturizer Mangoes Flavored beers Lone Survivor Pretending I don’t like candy anymore Grilling Yes, apparently I’m into grilling so much that in the past two weeks I’ve used up all the propane in my grill’s gas tank – before the season has really even begun! Thank goodness for Griddlers! In just about the same amount of time, I was able to whip up the exact feast I had planned on giving a good kiss with the grill tonight, right inside my kitchen. The basis for the BBQ was this, um, JUG of Big Daddy’s BBQ Sauce that’s currently hogging what I swear feels like 1/4 of our fridge. Ben picked it up at the BBQ Festival we went to last week, and is a wee bit obsessed. Case in point: I found a rack of ribs in the freezer earlier this week and said, “Hey maybe I’ll bake some BBQ ribs this week!” I mean! Talk about summer classics! Simply use a heavy-bottomed glass, pan or um…something else heavy? Chicken

My Buffalo Chicken Dip Finally! I know that's what my girlfriends are thinking as they read this post. I have been asked how to make this buffalo chicken dip a million times. Ironically, it's the one signature recipe I haven't posted yet on this blog. There is a good reason for that ... Let's face it... The concept of this dish isn't original, but it's my technique that makes it better than the rest. You taste the chicken, but you just can't put your finger on if there is really chicken in there. I would also suggest that you only use Frank's Red Hot Original cayenne sauce and that you most certainly do not use fat free ingredients. 1 large casserole pan 1 bag of tortilla chips Chopped celery Directions Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Poach your chicken in boiling hot water with some salt for 10 minutes, turn off the burner and leave for an additional 5 minutes (over cooking the chicken will give it a gamey taste, gross) Let the chicken cool then cut the breasts into smaller chucks.
