Old Fashioned 15 Beans Cowboy Style

Friday, July 19, 2019
This easy recipe is so hearty even a cowgirl will love these old fashioned barbecued bean flavors!


These cowboy-style beans are the perfect side dish and with the addition of ground beef, a whole meal in itself!


We usually omit the meat in these beans for our summer cookouts and just make a plain ole smoky barbecued bean pot.


They are a perfect match for our grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, and other favorites when we have a cookout with grilled meats.


The pot is loaded with 15 types of beans and with the additional flavors when adding bacon or ham used in this recipe, these become the best camping food or picnic side dish all year long!


We add the ground beef usually in winter months when you need a hearty stick to your ribs bean dish that will warm you up!


These cowboy-style beans are great with for feeding a large crowd perfect for all your friends and family gatherings, especially game day, cookouts, potlucks, and kind of party events.


We love to serve them with pulled chicken, pulled pork or any style hamburgers.


These can even be a topping for rice or baked potatoes!


We usually add the ground beef during the winter months and this would act more like a hearty chili than a side dish.


Either way, everyone loves these tasty beans, packed with delicious flavors and that addition of bacon or ham is what gives this comfort food it's the character.

Copycat Longhorn Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Saturday, July 6, 2019
I very rarely make a copycat other than from my hometown Restaurants, Utica, New York, however, at my son request loving this Longhorn chains version of Parmesan Crusted Chicken he loves, I just had to try it.


Since it was his birthday, I decided to surprise him with what I had hoped to be spot on with my experiment.


Honestly never having it myself, I had no idea what it tasted like or to expect when he came for a visit and I had it ready for him to try.


I sat patiently as he chewed the first bite, then another, still thinking about it.


I loved how he kept eating another bite trying to find something wrong with it.


I have to admit I was getting nervous with him not saying much, but the good news was he kept on eating it!


Of course, you need to read on and see what happens right?


If you would like the recipe to print of instead of reading, just scroll to the bottom where the recipe card hit the print button.


I hope you love this chicken remake as much as we do!
