Jerry Mathers barbecue sauce is a tangy and sweet sauce for summer barbecues

Do you remember the late 50’s to early 60’s wholesome sitcom, “Leave it to Beaver” starring Jerry Mathers? Some 30 years later, Weight Watcher’s Magazine ran an article featuring television personalities sharing their favorite recipes, and Jerry Mathers’ barbecue sauce caught my eye.

JD's egg muffins make a ready-to-go breakfast

One of the easiest breakfast items that we make for camping is a type of breakfast muffin that isn’t like the sweet cake or bread varieties that come to mind when you think ‘breakfast’. I had heard about an egg and potato hand-held concoction that bakes in muffin tins and make a portable breakfast on the run. We generally don’t have to run anywhere but I liked the idea well enough to do a little research.

Sauteed vegetables and spices make meatloaf an elegant comfort food

Meatloaf is a common dinner in many households. It can, however, turn out dry and, frankly, be somewhat boring.

Make a pineapple angel food cake for Mother's Day

Surprise mom on Mother’s Day with a pineapple angel food cake. Dad and the kids can easily whip up this simple recipe using only two ingredients to make a tasty dessert the whole family will love. The cake is low calorie, fat-free and yummy! I found this recipe on Facebook at Healthy Happy Helpers, a site where members share recipes and nutrition, diet and healthy eating tips.

A rice pudding that is satisfyingly creamy and chocolatey

Most rice puddings are nothing to have seconds of. Dry, thick and just gunky, even people who grew up with it don’t care to ever inflict it on anyone else. But this one is the exception. No, really. Satisfyingly creamy, with warm, chocolatey, custardy goodness, I promise that you will be craving some more in the middle of the night.

Celebrate the season with springtime casserole

Spring is right around the corner. Celebrate this welcome time of year featuring bright golden rays of sunshine and green grass kissed by the morning dew. Bring the outside in by combining Mother Nature’s invigorating colors in springtime casserole. This easy to make dish is great for potlucks, a side or even entrée. In a jiffy, golden cheese and fresh green broccoli combined with a can of mushroom soup, stuffing mix and a can of chicken is a winner.

A strata based on the Reuben sandwich

Strata. One of a series of layers, levels or gradations in an ordered system. What does this have to do with good eating? Plenty.

Oh, la, la French onion soup is tasty but easier on the waistline

French Onion Soup is one of my favorites, even though it is one of the most expensive and highest calorie soups on the menu. Generally, French onion soup recipes consist of sautéed onions in a beef broth covered with a thick piece of toast and shredded cheese melted on top. However, my homemade Ooh La La French Onion Soup is just as tasty and is under 200 calories a serving.

Complement the main dish of the meal with kale polenta

Polenta — so good, so pleasey, so easy! Use it plain or try adding some extras for a little kick, more flavor and visual excitement! I like to add kale, garlic and some Pecorino cheese, just to punch it up a bit.
