Lighter Green Bean Casserole

It’s the end of Holiday Side Dish week for me! I hope you’ve enjoyed the recipes I’ve shared with you this week and that you’ve checked out what the other bloggers have made and that we’ve helped you add some great dishes to your Thanksgiving menu. I saw an article […]

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 […]

Cranberry Baked Brie

I used to hate brie cheese. I thought it smelled horrendous and couldn’t even think of spreading it on a cracker to enjoy. Then a friend and I started frequenting a restaurant that served brie as part of their cheese board. I tried it again and completely fell in love. […]

Bourbon Cranberry Sauce #CranberryWeek

It’s the beginning of Cranberry Week! This week, bloggers and I will be sharing recipes with you that feature cranberries. I had to start off the week right and add another cranberry sauce to my recipe collection. Once I found out how easy it is to make homemade cranberry sauce […]

Christmas Menu

Do you know what you’re making for Christmas yet? Last week I was trying to figure out what to make. Ham tends to be our go-to choice, but I wanted to do something different this year and I thought maybe a beef roast or a pork loin would be a […]

Christmas Menu 2016

Christmas is less than three weeks away! Are you ready? Surprisingly, I’ve found myself pretty ready for this Christmas (except for a lack of recipes to share with you) and that’s probably because I managed to get my menu planned really early and my family really isn’t celebrating with gifts […]

Spiced Apple Cranberry Sauce

For years I have made my pear honey cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. I chose the recipe because of the addition of pears and honey helped to tame the tartness of the cranberry sauce and my family is not a fan of tart cranberry sauce. This year I intended to try […]

Slab Apple Pie

I was watching an episode of The Kitchen and saw Marcella making this apple pie recipe. About 10 seconds into her making the recipe, I grabbed my phone, opened up my Amazon app and found a set of cookie cutters like the ones she was using. With those ordered, I […]
