Tortellini Olive Salad

When I was first married I loved the Pillsbury magazine cookbooks at the check out stand. This was long before the internet… and long, long before food bloggers took over the world of cooking…ya know…back in the dinosaur period! lol

I’d patiently wait for each new addition. Who needed the tempting candy bars with a little cookbook sitting right there, full of delectable recipes from home cooks from all over the country!

I love cookbooks filled with recipes from women who cook for their families. Great everyday family foods! Those are the recipes that last. Seriously…think about it…biscuits. Chicken fried steaks. Fried Chicken. Stew. Apple Pie. Chicken and Dumplings. All great recipes that have been around for ages because Grandma’s Granny made them in her kitchen. The Best!

When we purchased our first home, we had a small “house warming” party. I wanted a fun new appetizer. In my newest Pillsbury cookbook was a recipe for Tortellini Kabobs. They were AMAZING! That was over 25 years ago and they are still one of the most requested dish at this Nest.
