Southwestern Cornbread Chicken Salad

Southwestern Cornbread Chicken Salad

This Southwestern Cornbread and Chicken Salad is a wonderful salad or appetizer to serve any day and if Southwestern foods are a little too spicy for you, this is the way to go.  I call it Cinco de Mayo for the fainthearted.  I love spicy food but it does NOT love me.  This, however, is packed with flavor and is a great go-to food that can be used as a salad or an appetizer and can easily be made with ingredients, most of … [Read more...]

Ham Salad ~ Easy Homemade

Ham Salad Homemade7

I loved ham salad when I was a kid.  When my mom or dad brought some home from the supermarket I remember hoping I would get a Town Talk white bread sandwich made with some of that smooth, tasty goodness.  Now being the youngest child, sometimes I just didn’t get any before it was gone.  {I did live, however, so I guess the lesson to learn is you don’t always have to get what you want to survive…you had no … [Read more...]

Crab Rangoon Dip

Crab Rangoon Dip2

One of my favorite appetizers ever is crab rangoon.  I love the little burst  of creamy tasty joy that awaits me when I bite into the crispy wonton wafer.  I wanted to make something ahead of time in my nifty new teeny crockpot to have before dinner {at home Chinese yumminess} last week.  I made this crab rangoon….just the stuffing…not the wrapper, and served with tortilla chips….it was soooo good.  I will be making it … [Read more...]
