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 [...]

Turkey While You Sleep

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Everyone knows that on Thanksgiving you have to have turkey, but no one wants to be the one in charge of cooking it, right? It’s such a pain to clean the turkey, dress the turkey, bake the turkey (meanwhile basting over and over and over), then you have to cut the dang thing and make [...]

2511 Rolls (Cloverleaf Rolls)

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and I’m sure you are all planning out your menus. Except those of you that claim you can’t cook…you guys are probably wondering which place is the best to buy an already cooked casserole or dessert. I got you, didn’t I? I’m not making fun at all, I truly stick by [...]

Mississippi Roast

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

A couple months ago¬†a sweet friend of ours from church made our family dinner to help us through a tough time. We had just returned home from Boston for my son’s 18th surgery and we were all exhausted round-the-clock. Let me just tell you that it completely made my day to not have to make [...]

Sweet Potato Snack Cake

Monday, November 7th, 2011

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never really been much on sweet potatoes. I think it all comes from a yucky, stringy baked sweet potato I had about 18 years or so ago. I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since, thereby avoiding sweet potatoes since that very day. That is…until [...]
