Simple Grilled Summer Squash

There are several things I love about summer….the heat, the beach, the clothing (shorts, tanks and flip flops!) and, of course, grilling. As much as I love to grill burgers, steaks and chicken, there’s something so unique about marinating…

Tuna Salad with Tarragon and Lemon

There is a local grocery store chain here in Bama that is slowly dwindling down, which makes me sad.  They have always been a favorite of mine.  In their deli, they have always carried chicken salad and tuna salad,…

Easy Chicken and Dumplings

For those of you hardcore chicken-n-dumplin’ fans, this recipe might be a little insulting.  I don’t slave over the stove all day, or even make the dumplings from scratch. This is a very easy version that’s pretty much fool-proof.…
