Glazed Carrots

I’m not really a fan of cooked carrots. I never have been. I’d much prefer to eat carrots in their raw state than ever eat them cooked. Glazed carrots are a pretty common recipe made for Thanksgiving and Christmas so I finally decided to bite the bullet and try them […]

Prosciutto Pear Cups

Happy New Years Eve! Are you hosting or attending a party tonight and still in need of something to bring? These tasty little bites would be the perfect appetizers since they barely take any time at all to whip up and can be served warm or at room temperature. Prosciutto […]

Wild Rice, Mushroom and Celery Stuffing

Stuffing or dressing? Which do you call it? I call it stuffing even though it wasn’t put into any unpleasant places on a bird and then baked. Dressing just sounds funny to me. You aren’t dressing the turkey with it. It’s not clothing. Then again, unstuffed stuffing isn’t that much […]

Pear Honey Cranberry Sauce

I know most people choose not to add cranberry sauce to their plates on Thanksgiving because they don’t like the tart flavor so I went off in search of a recipe that was sweet enough I might be able to do some convincing to at least try it. It  just […]

Green Bean Bundles

I have quite a few recipes that I make on a pretty regular basis but for some reason or another, have never blogged. This is one of those recipes. Tom doesn’t like many vegetables so I’m always looking for different recipes for the five or so vegetables that he does […]

Cheesy Green Bean Casserole

I was never a big fan of green bean casserole until I came across a recipe that used cheese instead of cream of mushroom soup. I like cream of mushroom soup and would even be tempted to add fresh mushrooms to green bean casserole, but sometimes you just need a […]

Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce

For years I would never get anywhere near canned cranberry sauce. The stuff is just scary looking. Its shaped like the can it was packaged in and it has the same consistency as Jello although it is not Jello. Plus its not very sweet. I know its not supposed to […]

Apple Pie

A few years ago I was at my aunts house over the summer and watched her put a lattice top on a pie. I thought it looked way better than a typical closed top pie. That Christmas, I decided I wanted to make apple pie so I could use that […]
