Monday Munchies

Monday Munchies: Pancetta and Fennel Green Salad www.wifemomhouseohmy.comA few Thanksgivings ago I was trying to find an alternative salad to my family’s traditional lettuce, chive, mayo and garlic salt salad. Yeah I know it sounds oh so exciting (sarcasm intended) but it actually does taste yummy. It just gets boring after awhile, especially when it is served at every single family get together. Plus, as I am… Continue reading

Monday Munchies: Homemade Dutch Apple Pie www.wifemomhouseohmy.comPie. Apple pie. Dutch apple pie. All of them make my mouth water and I LOVE baking all of them, especially Dutch Apple Pie. I love Dutch apple pie so much that I learned to make it and now have become quite famous for my Dutch apple pie within my family and friends. They love the salty sweet flavor that… Continue reading

Monday Munchies: Potato Bacon Corn Chowder www.wifemomhouseohmy.comI love coming up with new ways to make yummy classic favorites. It’s my way of trying to sneak in “H” word foods. Yes, I’m talking healthy food. Kale. Corn. Celery. Onion. Those things that kids and some hubbies don’t always want to eat. If your family is like mine, then getting them to eat healthy is a challenge. If… Continue reading

Real Girl's Kitchen Inspired Watermelon Cojita Salad www.wifemomhouseohmy.comI’m a fan of the show Real Girl’s Kitchen and Haylie Duff on the Cooking channel. In her recent Summer Cravings special episode, she made a delightful watermelon and feta salad. It was so appetizing and looked so yummy that I just wanted to reach into the TV and a grab a bowl for myself. Instead, I went… Continue reading

Monday Munchies: Roasted Butternut Squash www.wifemomhouseohmy.comI’m a sucker for comfort foods, even in the summer. The hearty warm dishes that stick to your bones with yummy goodness. One go to for me is the autumn squashes – butternut squash, acorn squash and of course pumpkin. There are just sometimes that I have a craving for those must have warm and savory flavors. The other… Continue reading

Monday Munchies Homemade Croutons www.wifemomhouseohmy.comI am a big fan of making sure that nothing gets wasted. From a pragmatic standpoint, I spent good hard earned money on it so I don’t want to waste. From an environmental and moral standpoint, I can’t justify in my mind wasting food when others could really use it. So I try to figure out ways to make sure… Continue reading

Monday Munchies: Homemade Sour Cream www.wifemomhouseohmy.comI have a small confession. I adore sour cream. I love it on baked potatoes. On a taco paired with guacamole and salsa is a personal favorite. Dipping chips in sour cream laced with onion soup mix or ranch seasoning ranks up there too. Oh, and I can’t forget the potatoes wedges. You might even call me a junkie. I… Continue reading

Monday Munchies: Uncle's Pasta Carbonara www.wifemomhouseohmy.comSo I have an oddity. I’m sure not many people can say they got a recipe from a bishop. Yep, a full on bonafide Catholic bishop – my uncle. Growing up he was always my uncle, the priest and then my uncle the bishop. He came from a line of good cooks though and he had one awesome recipe that… Continue reading

Monday Munchies: Quick Ham and Bean Soup www.wifemomhouseohmy.comNot so long ago my family had a delicious on the bone ham, which left us with tons of leftovers. I had to think of something to do with it all and I’d already worked the family ham spread recipe and hot and cold ham sandwiches. It just happened to be a rare cold spell with one of Southern… Continue reading

Monday Munchies Gourmet Grilled Cheese and Tomato Basil Bisque www.wifemomhouseohmy.comSometimes you just need comfort food. Even when it is hot, sometimes good hearty comfort food is just that little bit of something special that hits the spot. Well, the last several weeks have called for comfort food. But if it can be elevated to a new level, then why not. Last week on Monday Munchies, I shared about elevating… Continue reading
