Green Beans and New Potatoes {Granny's Recipes}

Fresh Green Beans and New Potatoes , a simple side dish full of flavors from the garden, homegrown green beans, and the first crop of new potatoes.   Fresh vegetables are the best unless they are fresh out of the garden, and then you cannot beat them. I love Fresh Green Beans and New Potatoes cooked together with a little bit of ham or bacon.

Diner Style Fresh Peach Icebox Pie

Diner Style Fresh Peach Pie, three ingredients make a fresh peach filling, and a homemade buttery pecan shortbread crust will create a no bake icebox pie you see in your beloved diners.  Be sure to use fresh peaches. If you love peaches as much as I do and can not bring yourself to turn the oven on for a fresh peach cobbler , lattice top peach pie , this foolproof no bake pie is the perfect summertime solution. The best part of this fresh peach icebox pie is you can make it in the morning and serve it by dinnertime, or you can make it a day ahead before serving it.

Pork Belly Baked Beans

 Pork Belly Baked Beans, pork and beans enhanced with a glorious slab of pork belly chunks, rich molasses, chopped onions, bell pepper, and ever so slight sprinkle of red pepper flakes deliver these traditional baked beans to an umami adventure.  These Pork Belly Baked Beans are one of the most delicious ways to enjoy pork belly and baked beans, simply delicious. I made a spin on my traditional  Southern Baked Beans for the recipe for the bacon; I switched for a slab of pork belly that I cut up into 1/2-inch chunks.  The pork and beans need to be drained really well to start off with. And the pork belly needs to cook low and slow until done and golden brown, stirring and watching closely not to burn.  If you try to cook it faster, it will present chewy and dry results.

Baked Ham and Angel Biscuit Sliders

Baked Ham and Angel Biscuits Sliders, a country smoked ham sandwiched between a fluffy buttermilk biscuit.  These are perfect appetizer to serve at parties.     This time of the year makes me think of all the ways to serve Baked Country Ham and Angel Biscuit Sliders, Easter Brunch, Mother's Day Brunch, Graduation Parties, Bridesmaid Brunch,  and the list goes on and on.

Lemon Bars Recipe

Old Fashioned Lemon Bars are the quintessential southern dessert at teas, luncheons, and showers.  The only recipe you will ever need, a simple, straightforward method.   My Lemon Bars sings the praises of spring coming.  They are so easy to make and are bursting with so much lemon goodness. After you make my recipe, you will not want to go back to store bought or packaged ones again.   My recipe uses a buttery shortbread cookie crust and a rich tangy sweet lemon curd filling. The combination is amazing.

Magic Carrots {Granny's Recipe}

Magic Carrots, a vintage salad recipe, is mostly known as Copper Pennies, Marinated Carrots, Sweet and Sour Carrots, but we know them as Magic Carrots.  Perfect for the holidays, potlucks, and even an elegant dinner. Magic Carrots are a unique side dish that brings memories of my childhood.  Back in the day when I was growing up, it seemed mother would bring these carrots out around the time spring came; to me, they scream Easter.
