Cranberry Pecan Stuffing

Mashed Potatoes for a Crowd

I’m back with another recipe for Holiday Side Dish week! I’ve probably mentioned this a million times but my mom has never been a great cook. But one thing that she always did was make homemade mashed potatoes. I honestly didn’t even know that you could get “mashed potatoes” from […]

Summertime Pasta Salad

There are a lot of condiments and foods that I love and Tom won’t come anywhere near them. One of the items on that list is cold pasta salad. He will eat cooked pasta. He will eat veggies pureed into a sauce, but he will not eat cold veggies (or […]

Did you know that May is National Salad Month? Yeah, me either. I like it though. It’s a strange memory to have, but I clearly remember the first time I ever ate a salad. I was maybe three or four and my mom had made one for herself. I remember […]
