Crab Dip


Horseradish makes this crab dip zing! When I make this, it is a given that my husband is going to burn the roof of his mouth off because he can't wait for it to cool "a little" before diving into it.

I want a blueberry... no wait, banana nut... no, apple cinnamon muffin. Can't decide what type of muffin you want this morning, this muffin recipe can satisfy all of your hankerings. Healthy, versatile, and the batter lasts in the fridge for 1 month!

Maine Chocolate Doughnuts



Last December, my Dad was insistent that we make these doughnuts while I was home visiting for the Christmas season. I was so glad that we did because not only are they delicious but they are part of my family's heritage. These doughnuts are made with potatoes, and my Mom's family the Griffins were potato farmers in Mapleton, Maine. These doughnuts bring me back to my roots :)

Aunt Peg's Wicked Good Zucchini Quiche


As a young girl, I have many fond memories of sitting on our back deck eating a slice of my Mom's zucchini quiche and sipping on an ice cold glass of homemade iced tea. This recipe is a pot-luck pleaser that is a cinch to make and the finished product looks impressive.

This is a great recipe for little helpers because the crust is made out of a refrigerated package of Pillsbury croissants. So while you are slicing and sauteing, your little helper can roll out the dough and piece together into the pie dish.

Maine Clam Dip


Nothing says "Maine" more than good old clam dip. Whether you are playing cards, having a pizza night, or going to a party, clam dip is an easy appetizer to make. The first time I brought my husband to Maine, we stayed at the Meadowmere Hotel in Ogunquit, and I packed a small cooler with clam dip and chips for snacks in the room. I guess he decided that not only was the clam dip a keeper, but so was I, because two years later we returned to Ogunquit Beach to say " I DO!"

Seafood Pasta Salad



























This is absolutely my favorite pasta salad, hands down. Once warm weather hits, I CRAVE this dish! It has definitely proven to be a crowd pleaser at barbeques and potlucks. The tri-color corkscrew noodles adds an aesthetic pizzaz. The use of imitation crab keeps the cost down but does not jeopardize the quality. Don't let the word "imitation" turn you away. Trust me!

Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Rice)


Arroz con Pollo is a traditional Cuban dish that is typically reserved for late afternoon Sunday meals that the whole family enjoys together. It is a one-pot dish that combines chicken, vegetables, and rice.

A quick disclosure. I did not make the arroz con pollo pictured here... my husband did. This was the first dish he made when he met my parents. Both he and this dish are Bryer family favorites :)
