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 […]

Corn Maque Choux

Corn Maque Choux is a traditional Louisiana dish made with corn, bell peppers, onions and cajun spices. Milk or cream is added, making the dish similar to a creamed corn.  How in the world have I not shared Corn Maque Choux with you yet? I’ve been making this recipe for […]

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 […]

Thanksgiving Tacos

Back in September, my friend Jenn and I took a very unplanned trip to the beach over Labor Day weekend. We both love the beach but didn’t have any plans to go down for the holiday weekend, because traffic is usually a nightmare. But then Jenn posted some image about […]

Cranberry Pecan Stuffing

I know that stuffing made using cranberries, walnuts, pecans, sausage, oysters, etc. are pretty popular, but I’ve never had any type of stuffing other than ones very similar to the Old Fashioned Celery and Onion Stuffing I shared with you on Monday. Stuffing is simple – bread, celery, onions, stock, […]

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 […]

Apple Galette

If making an apple pie from scratch is something that’s intimidating to you, you should definitely try making an apple galette instead. It’s very similar to an apple pie, but rustic, so you don’t need to worry about it getting the dough to crimp just right in the pie pan […]
