Don’t you love how everyone tries to take a recipe and make it buffalo flavored? Yes, me too. Guilty as charged. You know why people do this? Because it is delicious. Take a salad. Make it buffalo chicken. Instantly better. Chips and dip. Add buffalo chicken. Brilliant.  Our recipe for Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese is no different.

A classic dreamy and creamy macaroni and cheese recipe is made even yummier by adding grilled chopped chicken and loads of buffalo hot sauce.

Every macaroni noodle loaded bite is full of chicken and cheesy tangy flavor with just a little bit of heat.

Fresh okra is at the top of my summer vegetable list. I love it breaded and fried, I love it stewed with tomatoes. And I especially love okra roasted with sweet bell peppers and Vidalia onions.

This easy and fresh side dish is full of flavor. Plus it is super-healthy.

Simply seasoned with olive oil, garlic, fresh lemon, salt and pepper, you will soon be addicted to this awesome summer side dish.

(We consumed this entire pan as an afternoon snack. True story!)

Fried Green Tomato BLT Sandwich

There are not enough words in the English language to tell you how much I love fried green tomatoes. Seriously. June in Tennessee means green tomatoes, and that makes me happy. And I am also the poster child for Bacon Addicts Anonymous. Thus, the Fried Green Tomato BLT Sandwich was born.

It was a miraculous yet surprisingly easy birth.

Do this. Make this sandwich. (And be sure to make our 5 Minute Tangy Remoulade to go with it.) Flavor explosion.

Dilly Pickled Onion Rings

A Southern kitchen is not complete without an array of pickles and relishes.  Seriously, we will put just about anything into a jar with vinegar and sugar.  Pickled onion, cucumber, okra, corn, green tomato, watermelon rind… You name it, we have tried it.

When I found this family recipe for easy Dilly Pickled Onion Rings, I had to give it a whirl.  This recipe just feels like home. Sweet, sour and tangy, it doesn’t get any easier than this.  Dump everything into a jar, shake and put it in the fridge.

My husband and I come from a long line of geniuses.

Humble brag. *Eats straight from the jar*
