The Southern Bird Dog Sandwich

This simple and tasty sandwich, which I spotted over at She Wears Many Hats, comes together quickly and is perfect for a quick week night dinner. Chicken, bacon, cheese and honey mustard - you can't go wrong there. I recommend toasting the buns and using good quality ingredients. Since this sandwich is so simple, it's important to use the best you can find. Enjoy!

The Southern Bird Dog Sandwich
Makes 4 sandwiches


  • 4 hot dog buns (toasted if desired)
  • 3 pieces of cooked & crumbled bacon
  • 4 fried chicken tenders, prepared

  2. Layer crumbled bacon in the bottom of the hotdog buns.
  3. Cut the chicken fingers in half lengthwise and place in the toasted buns. Srinkle with cheese. Place on baking sheet under broiler for about 1 minute to melt cheese.

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!

Big Crumb Coffee Cake with Rhubarb

I tried out this delicious recipe from the wonderful blog Smitten Kitchen. The only thing I forgot was to add a dusting of powdered sugar on top. I love rhubarb so this was a winner. Enjoy!
