Seafood Salad

Simple Seafood Salad

Simple Seafood salad is something that I love.  It’s one of my favorite things to buy at the store, but I don’t do it often because it’s what I consider a luxury item.  I have been making crab salad at home for years, so I decided to try my hand at making a copycat of the seafood salad that’s available in the deli at my […]

Italian Egg Rolls (Air Fryer)

Italian Egg Rolls (Air Fryer)

Italian Egg Rolls were something that I created one evening when we were trying to decide what to eat.  I don’t really like to turn on the oven during the summer months, and I’m not a big fan of deep frying foods.  It’s not for health reasons.  It’s because it seems so time consuming, and I didn’t feel like standing over the stove while the […]

Hot Shrimp and Artichoke Dip

Hot Shrimp and Artichoke Dip

I love hot and creamy dips.  This recipe for Hot Shrimp and Artichoke Dip is simple, amazing, and very easy to make.  It’s a variation on my slow cooker spinach artichoke dip, but it ‘s made in the oven.  Of course, it’s winter, so I don’t mind turning on the oven,  In the summer I might have a different opinion.  

Faux Mixed Ceviche

Faux Mixed Ceviche

Mixed Ceviche, Patty Cake’s Pantry style, is very simple to prepare.  Do you remember my cheater’s salsa recipe?  This mixed ceviche recipe is very similar because it is made with several cheats.  In spite of this, my “homemade” mixed ceviche is always well received by my guests.   It doesn’t matter if it’s New Year’s Eve or Superbowl Sunday, this mixed ceviche, served with crunchy tortilla […]
