Ricotta cheese helps make these Smoked Bacon Cheddar Hush Puppies light and fluffy. The gooey, cheesy center is a pleasant surprise.

Hush puppies are easy to make. They are one of those food that require little effort to produce delicious satisfying results. They are made with a cornmeal/flour based batter. In my hush puppies, there is a particular ingredient that you will not find in many others—ricotta cheese. Adding it to pancake batter is a common practice because it adds lightness to the pancake. I thought that the same principle should apply to hush puppies and decided to incorporate in the batter.

For a delicious holiday appetizer, try this bacon and mango chutney dip. With chopped pecans and a cream cheese/sour cream layer, it makes for a tasty combo. Not big on mango? It is great with other chutneys too!

Holiday entertaining has kicked into gear. With that comes many opportunities to feast. I like to sample, so I love the appetizer table. A plateful of a variety of tasty little morsels to savor always makes me happy. I'm adding this Bacon and Mango Chutney Dip to my repertoire this year and I know it will be a hit, particularly for bacon lovers :)

This clam cake recipe was one of my oldest posts on the blog. It was published on December 27, 2013. They are so good that I think they are worthy of a repost. I have updated the content and pictures since the original publication. 

These nuggets of yumminess are dear to my heart has they are my recreation of a childhood family favorite. I lived in Massachusetts most of my life. Growing up, my family used to frequent this hole-in-the wall clam shack on one of the beaches of Cape Cod. The clams cakes were always fluffy, full of clams, crispy on the outside, and piping hot.

Store bought provolone and prosciutto-stuffed hot cherry peppers that are dipped in a batter and panko crumbs and fried until golden brown. This salty, vinegary, and hot appetizer will disappear quickly.

Do you like hot stuffed cherry peppers? I am a fan. They are pickled and stuffed with provolone cheese and prosciutto. These vessels of deliciousness deliver salty and vinegary flavors as well as heat to your mouth. They are so good! For the longest time, I have wanted to batter and fry them. I finally tried it out this week, and let me tell you, they were as good as I had hope! The texture is wonderful. There is the crispness of the peppers, the smoothness of the cheese, the slight chew of the prosciutto, and the crunch of panko crumbs. This appetizer is a mouthful of flavor and texture that will leave you wanting more.

I can’t believe that Mother’s Day weekend is here! How did this happen? We will also be celebrating my husband’s birthday. Because of social distancing, our daughter won’t be able to visit. However, we will make the most of it at home...just my husband, my son, and me. This means there will be a whole lot of grazing going on.
