Turkey Stuffing

Since we have Thanksgiving coming up next week, Kate & I have decided to review some recipes to see if they are fit to serve to family and friends. . This stuffing recipe was a winner! It comes from Center Cut Cook. It is from scratch, and is VERY good. I grew up on boxed… Read More


Sweet Potato Casserole

Thanksgiving is a WONDERFUL time of traditions and food, but sometimes food is eaten just for the sake of tradition and isn’t necessarily super delicious. For example, my husband’s family eats sauerkraut and hot dogs as part of Thanksgiving dinner. Seriously – I kid you not! Do you know what kind of smells sauerkraut gives off combined… Read More


Fantasy Fudge

  This is our family’s go-to fudge recipe and it doesn’t disappoint. I have made it so many times, and so many people comment on how much they love it, and then they usually follow it up with, “my fudge never turns out.”. Then I give them this recipe, which pretty much always turns out.… Read More


Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps

I am always on the lookout for fast, fresh-tasting food, and found this recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. This recipe is completely responsible for my picky 4-year old choosing to eat tortillas (finally!!) for the first time. The crispy outside and delicious filling were so good that she was willing to set aside her dislike of… Read More


Quick Ham & Bean Soup

Again, I totally have a cold (or “cold”) weather soup issue. The issue being that I can eat soup all of the time. Which maybe isn’t an issue for me, but it is nice to get some variety in the soups for my family. One canned soup that I really enjoy is bean and ham… Read More


Tortellini Vegetable Soup

I am a warm weather kind of girl. I love to sit outside and soak up the sun and heat. So maybe that is why as soon as the weather turns “cold” (I’m talking 70s and 60s), I turn to soup to warm me up. I eat soup all fall, winter, and a good part… Read More


Peanut Butter Bars

I love, LOVE peanut butter and chocolate. LOVE. I saw this recipe from I Heart Naptime and knew it would be a great one to try. These were addictive. You can use the pre-bought graham cracker crumbs, or just put whole graham crackers into a gallon-sized ziploc bag and crush the crackers by rolling over them… Read More


Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

If you love Chicken Cordon Bleu and tend to like richer flavors, you will love this recipe! For a couple of years I have had the vision of a chicken cordon bleu casserole bouncing around my head, but never bothered making it. I finally decided I had enough of buying frozen cordon bleu (yes, I… Read More


Best Bran Muffins

These muffins are classic, full of fiber goodness, and super delicious. This recipe is one that my mother-in-law has modified, that she got from her mother. It is perfect for the fall (or any time, really) and is filling, which is nice for a muffin. This recipe makes a LOT of muffins (somewhere around 48),… Read More


Homemade Taffy

Every July 24th, we celebrate Pioneer Day. As part of that celebration, the past couple of years my kids & I have made our own taffy. Yum! It is actually quite a bit of work (I think it took me 3 hours of working from start to finish with two little helpers), but is fun… Read More
