Meatball & Mozzarella Skillet

I have been on a mission to make a different recipe for dinner every night for an entire month.  I am in the second week and so far only about half have been…”blog worthy”.  I want the content here to be good…in fact, really good!  I want for you to be able to take my […] Read more…

Cranberry Bliss Shortbread Bars

A few years ago my kids and I went to Maui for Christmas.  I thought we would miss being home but I have to say that the warm weather and salt water made up for what we missed in the Christmas department.  Tater golfed all day while Tales drove us around in the golf cart. […] Read more…

Turkey and Fixings Stuffed Tater

Thanksgiving is such a delicious day!  I get up a little later, watch Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade while eating a piece of Apple Cream Cheese Breakfast Braid, work on my contribution for our dinner and then head over to enjoy the day with family and friends.  We eat, watch football {go Chargers!}, play cards and […] Read more…

Savory and Sweet Party Plates

We are on the eve of Thanksgiving and I have a feeling that a few of you {myself included} might be looking for a last minute dish to make tomorrow.  Some years the holidays sort of sneak up on me.  I know they are coming but time flies by so fast that before I know […] Read more…

Apple Cream Cheese Breakfast Braid

We are just days from Thanksgiving and so I thought I would share with you one of my favorite quick breakfast ideas.  I always find that I am at a loss for what to make on Thanksgiving morning {or any morning for that matter}.  Partially because I am not a breakfast fan {unless it is […] Read more…

Cider Sangria Spritzer

Why do tasty and festive adult beverages not exist for Thanksgiving?   Seriously though…what is a holiday without an over the top drink?  At Christmas people really get serious about cocktails.  They even go as far as to plan an entire party around them.  Now don’t get me wrong,  you will definitely find me drinking […] Read more…

Mini Turkey Croissant Sliders with Cranberry Cream Cheese Spread

I guess I am on a bit of a mini kick…first Mini Pumpkin Pies and now Mini Croissant Sliders.  I can’t help myself!  There is something about mini versions of our favorite foods that make me super happy.  My sister owns {and I previously owned} a local deli called The Happy Horse.  One of the […] Read more…

Peanut Butter Cup Turkey {Place Card Holders}

It is a little embarrassing to admit but we are paper plate users at my house.  During the week when we are in a rush, I don’t even set the table.  Dinner is served buffet style at the stove top and paper plates are the serving dish of choice.  On special holidays {like Thanksgiving} however, […] Read more…

Miniature Pumpkin Pies

Thanksgiving is 12 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes away {not that I am counting}!  For me, that translates into one of my favorite times of the year…PUMPKIN PIE TIME!!  I think it should be against the law to not celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday without a piece of pumpkinie {I know…not a real word} goodness.  […] Read more…

Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole

This time of year I want to bombard you with sweet recipes because hello…it is the holiday season and if it isn’t dessert then this life is not worth living!  We do however, still have this thing called…DINNER!  Dang dinner!!  Between 5 & 7 p.m. our families are hungry…what??  Today I am going to help you […] Read more…
