Cheesy Potatoes


7 potatoes medium-sized potatoes cubed with skin on

1/2 cup almond milk

3/4 stick of butter melted

Parmesan cheese

Mozzarella cheese

Colby jack cheese

Cheddar cheese

Sea salt

Black pepper

1/2 cup alfredo sauce

Italian seasoning mix

Fresh basil chopped

Fresh oregano chopped

1/4 cup green onion chopped

3 cloves garlic chopped

Olive oil

Bake potatoes lightly coated in olive oil on 350 degrees for 45 mins or until tender. Then remove from oven and mix in almond milk, butter, and alfredo sauce. Cover and mix potatoes with equal amounts of each kind of cheese. Then mix in garlic, some fresh basil, fresh oregano and green onion. Season with an Italian seasoning blend, pepper and salt. Stick it back in the oven for about 15 mins. The cheese should be gooey and potatoes soft. The fresh herbs will give it a major kick versus just using the Italian seasoning blend alone.

Southern Style Pinto Beans with Smoked Turkey


1 package smoked turkey legs (three legs)

64 oz dry pinto beans

1 onion chopped

1 green bell pepper chopped

4 cloves of garlic chopped

1 Serrano pepper chopped

Sea salt

Black pepper


A little cayenne pepper

Rick’s Hot and Spicy All Purpose Seasoning (5in1) or Lawry’s seasoning salt

Equipment: Large stock pot

Rinse pinto beans off first. Boil on high heat with turkey legs, onions and green peppers for 3 hours. Season until you are satisfied with the taste. Make sure to replenish water throughout and stir all the way to the bottom as to not burn the beans. The meat will fall off the bones. Remove as much cartilage as you can find and the large bones once the meat has fully come off. Turn down the heat to low and let simmer for 2 more hours.

Serve over rice with cornbread. I used Jiffy cornbread with a couple of adjustments since I didn’t feel like making it from scratch 🤣

2 boxes Jiffy cornbread mix

Add 2/3 cups of sweet corn into your batter per their ingredients on the back. It will bake to a golden brown about 19 mins total due to the larger amount. Once it’s done glaze with honey butter.

Honey butter glaze:

3/4 stick of butter

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon of salt

Melt, whisk, pour and spread over baked cornbread.
