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

Rotini pasta, tossed with a mix of vegetables - broccoli, red onion, sweet bell pepper, carrots and tomatoes here - mixed with a seasoning blend and dressed with a quality homemade or commercial Italian or Ranch dressing.

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.

Instant Pot Pulled Pork


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:

Marinated Grilled Ribeye Steak Sandwich

Inspired by a popular sandwich from a local hole in the wall tavern, this ribeye steak is marinated in a flavorful blend, then grilled, served on pistolette rolls and dressed simply with grilled onion, mayonnaise, lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with chips and a pickle spear.

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.

Gumbo Sloppy Joes

This loose meat spoon burger recipe dates as far back as the 1950s and has been a favorite for many families all those years. It's made with ground beef, onion, a few standard condiments... and a completely unexpected ingredient!

I will be the first to admit when I first heard of this sandwich, I was super skeptical! It seemed a bit, well, crazy to me, as I'm sure it will to some of y'all, but... wait a minute.

Turns out, it is amazingly delicious, and downright addictive! This is how it came about.

The Dish Rewind Vol. 1


I've been running this recipe website for almost 13 years now. It's really hard to believe that, and yes, I know that there are many of you who have been here with me all along. Thank you for your love and support.

Born out of losing my long-held corporate career to a storm named Katrina, I didn't anticipate how much it would grow. Over those years, I've published a lot of recipes!

Tex-Mex Grilled Shrimp Tacos

Highly seasoned grilled shrimp served on grilled fresh corn tortillas with salsa fresca, onion, cilantro and fresh lime.

Tex-Mex Grilled Shrimp Tacos


I love any kind of Mexican or Tex-Mex food, though outside of the usual standards of tacos, burritos and quesadillas - we pretty much go out more often than making it at home. The main reason is I have an adventurous palate and almost never order the same thing.

The Cajun, well he's the total opposite and almost never steers away from the crunchy beef tacos. It's kinda funny really, because he'll study the menu for awhile, but then when the server arrives, it's always crunchy tacos!

Cuban-Style Creole Fried Chicken


If you're from the south, when you first saw the words "Creole" and "fried chicken" in the title to this recipe, you may have had certain expectations.

A southerner would likely expect any chicken that claims to be "fried chicken" to be one that has been dredged in seasoned flour and deep fried.

A southerner from the Deep South would expect a recipe claiming to be "Creole" to have the typical influences of tomato along with the trinity of onion, bell pepper and celery.

You'll find that neither of those elements apply to this Cuban-Style Creole Fried Chicken!

Mongolian Beef


Okay. I have to admit. I have been seeing copycat recipes for this thing called Mongolian Beef all over the place for years.

Although an American creation and not authentic Chinese cuisine, it seems it's a favorite from P.F. Chang's restaurant, a place I have been to exactly once in my life. That visit was in Texas of all places, when we were there visiting family. I actually don't even remember what I ordered there to be honest, except that while it was good, it wasn't the Mongolian Beef.
