One day, as I shared cookout recipes on my Facebook page, I shared my classic potato salad, a recipe that, while I do prepare other versions on occasion, is my standby recipe and most similar to the way that my Mama made potato salad. A reader commented that I really should try French potato salad sometime.

Of course, I took that as a challenge!

While I don't eat it every day, and I rarely cook it at home anymore because it can be a bit messy, I do LOVE fried chicken.

Absolutely love it.

The chicken is tender. The coating on the deep-fried skin is so deliciously crunchy and loaded with flavor, it may well be my most favorite part. With easy access to places like Popeye's, and our local fried chicken buffet Hartz, fried chicken is The Cajun's and my top comfort food. We probably eat it more often than we should!

Oh my goodness y'all... is this summer heat ever gonna end?? And it's not even August yet.

I know that I whine about it every summer but it's not getting any easier as the birthdays come on, that's for sure! The boys came by with their Dad for a swim and while PawPaw hung out in the pool with them, I had to go in and out of the house, alternating between visiting and cooling off. It was awful.

It's really been hard to get motivated to cook too.

Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette


Y'all know that I love me some fresh summer cucumbers and juicy, seasonal tomatoes and as salads go, I mostly just toss them with a mix of vinegar and sugar and call it a day. I do love that whole sweet and sour thing and that's the way I combine them most often.

Sometimes it's just simply cucumbers with onions, mostly sweet Vidalias, because it is the season for them too after all, but sometimes a sharp, purple onion is in order instead.

C'mon now y'all... what's not to love about a chicken salad with avocado, bacon and pecan?

Well, I for one can attest - it is delicious!

I've noticed when engaging on social media that a lot of folks favor and have one signature chicken salad that they make all of the time and that most everybody knows them for. It's the one that they always bring to events.

I guess in that case, mine would be what I call my deli-style version, a very basic but delicious version, though I've made multiple variations of that one over the years, this being one of them!

I really love using an air fryer, especially in this heat. It's way less messy than frying on the stovetop too, that's for sure!

I have mentioned before, but it took me awhile to get on board with them admittedly, but when I did finally, I ended up with several of them! The one that stays out of the pantry and that I use the most is an oven style version though I did use the larger basket style fryer this time.

Supreme Pasta Salad

Whew y'all! It's been super-hot and humid here along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and we're heading into a couple of 100+ degree actual temperatures here the next few days. No telling what the "feels like" temp will be with the humidity factored in. Wow.

Many of you have been in a similar heat wave that we have down here, and it sure feels like it will never end, even though summer actually only "officially" started this week! Yeah, okay...

We all seem to be suffering with this heat.

Grilled Spicy Shrimp (Ninja Foodi)

I really enjoy grilled foods, though when I talk about "grilling" these days, it's less often on my outside, open-flame grill anymore, and much more often on my indoor countertop grill.

The heat and humidity outside in the summertime here along the central Gulf Coast is just too much for me!

It's not quite the same as that open flame flavor of course, so yeah, it loses a little in the translation on a tabletop grill, but it sure does still taste good! It's also easier, more convenient and faster, especially when you purchase your shrimp already peeled and deveined from the freezer section.

I grew up, and still live on the Central Gulf Coast where seafood is abundant. Whether you catch your own, or pick it up from a local seafood market, there's nothing that can compare to it from a grocery store freezer section, nevermind that which comes from foreign markets. Nothing.

I love a good pulled pork, and no, it doesn't even have to be one that is slow smoked, although yes, I adore that and it's really the best. Most of us home cooks are not going to be dedicated to that whole process, but we are happy to enjoy when somebody else does!

Mostly we stick with the tried-and-true methods that have worked for home cooks for years:

If you're from Biloxi, you likely know of The Project Lounge, and at some point in your life, you've probably been there too.

Though they moved from their original location near Highway 90 on the beach to a little bit further away near Keesler Gate 7, they have always been known for being a dark and smoky bar, but they are also well known for their hamburgers and steak sandwiches.
