Easy Chilaquiles/Migas

This version is a simplified combination of chilaquiles and migas, and is always a big hit when I make it for friends. It's so easy, it makes for a great group breakfast on houseboat trips, camping, or any get together.


Limoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur produced mainly in Southern Italy and served as an after dinner/dessert drink. It is served chilled in small glasses (a shot glass will work if you don't have specialty glasses).


As an appetizer and dip, hummus is traditionally scooped with flatbread (such as pita) but you can also use chips or crackers. I particularly like to use baked pita chips. Hummus can also be used as a sandwich spread.

Bananas Foster

Bananas Foster is a New Orleans (and worldwide) favorite. It was created in 1951 by chef Paul Blange of Brennan's Restaurant in New Orleans, and named for Richard Foster, a friend of the owner and frequent customer of the restaurant.

Winter Hot and Sweet Ribs

These ribs are made in your oven, so no need to wait for nice weather. The sweetness plus just the right amount of spice makes for a perfect combination.
