Parmesan Truffle Fries*

Let me start off by saying I have NEVER met anyone that didn’t like french fries. If you are one of those people that don’t then leave my website immediately because you should be ashamed. Now, I’m not saying they’re healthy and that I eat them all the time, but as a treat nothing beats a good french fry. Well, this is my kicked up version. I love anything with truffle oil on it because it takes an ordinary dish and makes it really specia...

Asian Cabbage Slaw*

I feel like I say this a lot, but this really is a family favorite! I promise you every time we get together this slaw will be there! It’s so easy and delicious and sometimes I eat an entire plate of it. It’s my Gogo’s recipe and it’s here to stay. I like to assemble the slaw and make the dressing on the side.
