Gingerbread Apple Streusel Coffee Cake

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but last year during the Christmas season I went a little nuts. I bought six packages of gingerbread cookie mix because they only sell them during Christmas season, and well…what if I get the hankering for a gingerbread cookie in July? I personally have never made gingerbread cookies [...]

Reese’s Bars

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

I hope you like Christmas candy because I am on Christmas candy overload and am trying to post some of my favorites for all of you to enjoy. Speaking of, everyone loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, right? If you don’t, you deserve a bed at a mental hospital in my opinion. Seriously, who couldn’t love [...]

Pistachio & Cranberry White Chocolate Bark

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Can you say heaven on earth? Because that’s what these little bits are, little tiny pieces of heaven right here on earth! I actually made this recipe last week and the day after my mother-in-law came over to keep the kids for me while I went to run an errand. When I came back she [...]

Seasoned Oyster Crackers

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Nothing on the face of this planet reminds me of my Nana at Christmas time more than her seasoned oyster crackers. There was never any question about whose house we went to on which day at Christmas time growing up. We always went to my dad’s family on Christmas Eve after our Christmas program at [...]

Cheese Grits

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Are you guys making your list of all the things you want to make for Christmas yet? I am! Then again, that’s probably no surprise to all of you. I usually do the same thing every year for breakfast on Christmas morning, homemade cinnamon rolls and sausage balls. My kids love it, it’s easy, and [...]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

I had hopes of making a pumpkin roll sometime during the Thanksgiving holidays, but time just got away from me. November was such a crazy busy month that I never got a chance to make it and I was so disappointed! I know it’s almost December and it’s time for Christmas goodies and all kinds [...]

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Monday, November 28th, 2011

I am so ready for Christmas that I just don’t know what to do! My family has been through so many trials and tribulations this year that I have made a promise to myself to enjoy this Christmas season as much as possible, no matter how tough things are. This is a time for family [...]

Turkey Pesto Panini

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Are you folks sick of turkey yet? I’m not! I could think of a million ways to use leftover turkey but this recipe I’m sharing today is one of my absolute favorites. I’m a self-proclaimed sandwich addict. I could probably eat nothing but sandwiches for meals the rest of my life and still be a [...]

Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up!

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

With the big holiday just two days away I know you are probably planning your last minute additions to your menu. We always say we aren’t going to go overboard, but we always do, right? Please tell me it’s not just me that does that. So in case you still have some room on your [...]

Sweet Potato Pie

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Bear with me on today’s post as I try to type with a pinky finger covered in layer after layer of gauze, then topped off with a finger sling (what do you call these things anyway?). Word to the wise, don’t get into a fight with your vaccum cleaner…it will win! Ugh, so now all [...]
