Posted by What the "Forks" for Dinner on Friday, May 15, 2020


Tim and I have been using Wal Mart pick up service for a while and love the convenience and the time-saving. This service is even more essential to practice social distancing. We have also used Instacart. Continue reading “Home Delivery – Pick Up Services”

Social Distancing

Well, things sure have taken a turn!!! Whoever heard of Social Distancing ….until now!!!

As I stated in my last post the flu has hit me hard!!!!! Tim not at all which is really lucky, he has been my nurse for several weeks.

We will not go on and on about what you should be doing. That has been and continues to be covered. You can click on any social media site and be inundated with information.

What we will do is stay at home as much as possible. We also will for the first time try a home-delivered food service!

We will reveal which one, the meals we received, how they tasted, and most important if they were worth the cost!

Having two weeks(possibly more) off will also give us here at What the Forks for Dinner? time to create (if we can get groceries) some easy and great meals to share with you!!

So as we are all in uncharted territory please follow the guidelines to stay safe and healthy! And check back with us often!!!

Our Top 5 Pinterest

Our Top 5 Pinterest ……..

We are finally starting to get this thing rolling…… Pinterest is a huge draw to our site. So, it’s only fitting that we do a top 5. These are the best of our best. Please try them, we promise you will be glad you did!


Pressure Cooker Chicken Marsala

Pressure Cooker Chicken Marsala 5

This recipe was, I think, my second attempt at the pressure cooker, a.k.a. Insta Pot. I mentioned in the post, and it is still true, if you don’t have one of these, do yourself a favor and get one…they are awesome! The pressure cooker makes quick work of Chicken Marsala. A pressure cooker makes this rich, mellow, and earthy tasting dish in minutes.


French Apple Cake

French Apple Cake 1

Oooolala…it’s French Apple Cake. This is one of my favorite and all time go to cake reicpes. It looks like a million bucks and is really easy to make. French Apple Cake – Beautiful, rustic French Apple cake. Buttery, sugary, apples under a moist butter cake. Whipped topping or ice cream and its dessert!!!


Salted Caramel Shortbread Cookies

Every once in a while you make something that is sooo good…Salted Caramel Shortbread Cookies – Shortbread cookies with a sea salty caramel layer topped with rich dark chocolate and just a pinch of sea salt on top!


Asiago Shrimp Risotto

Asiago Shrimp Risotto 1

I have mentioned before my love of the electric presser cooker. Seriously get one!!!!!! Then you can make Asiago Shrimp Risotto in nothing flat – an electric pressure cooker makes quick and easy risotto. Loaded with shrimp, herbs and asiago cheese. Creamy, cheesy and delicious!


Hamburger Soup

Hamburger Soup 5

One of our first recipes on What the “Forks” for Dinner? was Hamburger Soup. It has been one of our most popular recipes and it is Tim and I’s personal favorite. We even posted it twice.  For the story of Hamburger Soup, read the first post just try not to look at the pictures……its was some of our first and …..well we were beginners. Hamburger Soup – Hearty soup with hamburger, carrots, onions, celery, tomatoes, slow cooked and the best darn soup you will ever taste!!!!

We are so excited to have a Top 5 to share, and we hope you will try each and everyone!!!!!
