Pineapple Icebox Cake

Pineapple Icebox Cake, made with layers of Nilla wafers, a blend of cream cheese, pudding and condensed milk with pineapple and whipped topping. I like to finish mine with a little coconut, maraschino cherries and a sprinkle of chopped nuts.

Can y'all believe that summer is almost out the door? Well, it won't be temperature-wise around here for months yet, but kids around here have been back in school for weeks now and we're already coming up on Labor Day?

Well, are y'all sittin' down? Because last month I shared a Summer Berry Cobbler and today, I already have a dessert again!! I say that, because, if you've been around here any length of time, you know that I'm much more of a savory gal than I am a sweets lover.

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo - highly spiced, sauteed shrimp, tossed in fettuccine noodles and a lighter alfredo sauce, made with 2 percent milk and a quality freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

I don't know too many folks who don't like a rich alfredo sauce. I mean, let's face it. When you go out to a restaurant do you ask for your cream sauces to be made with skim milk? Um, nope.

Heavy cream is delicious, though I don't keep it in my fridge all the time, and it's not something I want to consume on a regular basis. I usually only buy it for a very specific recipe. Like holiday mashed potatoes. Custard ice cream. Rich, oyster stew. Or my spicy tomato cream sauce for pasta. Definitely my cream biscuits with the leftovers!

Refrigerator Dilly Beans

Refrigerator Dilly Beans - Fresh green beans, quickly blanched, then covered in a pickled brine, with fresh dill, garlic and hot peppers.

I have a love-love relationship with anything pickled - cucumber pickles, of course, my favorite being bread and butter - I can plow through a jar of those like nobody's looking, though frankly I really haven't met a pickle I didn't love.

I adore pickle relish. My favorite hotdog, aside from chili and cheese, is one with mustard, ketchup, chopped raw Vidalia onion and boatloads of pickle relish. Pickled okra? Yep. Pickled veggies? Yes, indeed. Pickled onions, of course! Even pickled shrimp. And now, pickled green beans, better known as Dilly Beans.
