Pear Ginger Pie

Pear Ginger Pie is a gorgeous pie made with fresh pears and ginger and topped with a streusel crumble topping, making it the star of your holiday table.  Pears are such an underutilized fruit. They’re delicious, full of flavor and come in a ton of varieties, but there are not a […]

New Orleans Oyster Dressing

New Orleans Oyster Dressing is a hearty dressing (stuffing) made with bread, cajun seasonings, veggies and oysters. It’s a great savory side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I’ve always been a classic stuffing kind of girl. Celery, onion, bread and seasonings is all I need to enjoy a heaping spoonful […]

Cajun Roasted Turkey Breast

Cajun Roasted Turkey Breast is full of flavor! Made with paprika, cayenne, garlic powder and other spices, it’s a great twist for a flavorful turkey on Thanksgiving.  Tom has been on a pretty good streak of suggesting recipes for me to make lately. Usually, the meal planning for the week […]

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 […]

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

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 and how much more I liked it compared to the canned version, I’ve been trying out new options ever since. […]

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 […]

Cranberry Week: Cranberry Dijon Ham

Would you believe that I have tons of ham recipes saved, but I rarely every blog them because it doesn’t make sense to buy a monstrous ham for just the two of us and the photos of a small ham just looks paltry and sad. But this recipe is delicious […]
