Recipes are brought to you by The Tentacle on Saturdays to help reignite the joy that is “family diner”.  A time to bond and share your day over a meal.  We take out the struggle over “what” to fix.  You supply the conversation.

Salted Caramel Sauce

Looking to spruce up your ice-cream? Give this quick and easy Salted Caramel sauce recipe a try.

Deconstructed Enchiladas

What do you fix for dinner when you have run out of ideas and nothing sounds appetizing? The other day I threw something together and hoped for the best. I must admit, I thought it was pretty tasty. I’m calling it Deconstructed Enchiladas. Give it a try and let us know in the comments.

Iced Coffee

Here's my version of Iced Coffee. Perfect on a hot, sunny day. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

Crab Dip With Old Bay

Here’s an oldie but a goodie! It is not an original by me, but it is something I make often this time of year to share with visiting friends. It never fails to please! Try it and let us know what you think!

Gracie’s Spicy Tomato Juice

How’s your tomato crop coming along? Got tomatoes? Well, here’s my tasty take on tomato juice. I hope you like it spicy! (Probably makes a great Bloody Mary without the need to add anything but the alcohol.) The recipe below yields 2 cups. Try it and let us know what you think! If you enjoy the 2-cup recipe, double it, bottle it, and have it in your fridge for a few days. If you do that, remember to shake before pouring! Enjoy!

Crab Imperial

Out of my tin of scribbled recipes comes one of my favorites, served as an entrée or used as stuffing for baked fish. Either way, it is indescribably delicious! Try it and let us know what you think!

Millie’s Tomato Salad

All your tomatoes coming in at once? I’ve been spending the past week creating tomato foods for the massive amount we’ve got. Of course, I’ve been sharing with friends and I hope they like my creations. Today I will share with you my memory of mom’s tomato salad. Oh so good! This is a great salad for preparing the day before you plan to serve. Try it and let us know what you think!

Chicken Pot Pie

Recipe for single dish chicken pot pie.

Independence Day Cole Slaw

I was digging in my recipe box looking for a quick salad for the holiday weekend. I found one, but I cannot say I created it. Did you know “Cole Slaw” comes from the Dutch for Cabbage Salad? I didn’t until recently.

Ranch House Chicken Louise

It is grilling season and you are absolutely going to LOVE this very old handed-down family original recipe. This is the first time I have ever shared it. It is my absolute favorite BBQ sauce ever!
