Giant Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Cookies

To celebrate my 42 years on this earth {not today…later in the week} I decided that it had to be a cookie.  Don’t get me wrong…I love a good cake or even a pie but cookies make me extra happy.  I am a firm believer that people should get the dessert they want for their […] Read more…

Chicken Parm Ravioli Bake

Happy Monday sweet peeps!!  I have an awesome and absolutely simple dinner recipe for you today.  6 ingredients, layer and voila…dinner is on the table.  I just love it when a plan comes together.  I especially love it when the plan includes a dish that the entire family loves.  I had originally saw a recipe […] Read more…

Sky High Biscuits

There is something about a biscuit that is so comforting.  My grandma Pearl used to make them for me in my 20’s.  I was working mama with two young children and she was our babysitter {we were so lucky}.  She also fed us breakfast every single morning when we dropped the kids off, on our […] Read more…

Red Enchilada Sauce

I think that store bought enchilada sauce is pretty darn good.  My only problem with it is that…I can’t control the spice/heat and even when I purchase the mild variety, it is WAY too hot for me.  I love the flavor but then the spice takes over and kind of ruins the entire experience for […] Read more…

Chicken Enchilada Soup

So…here is the thing about soup…it can take forever to make!  I think that is why I tend to shy away from putting it on my dinner menu.  I don’t have the time or patience to let it simmer for hours in order to get to the good stuff {aka-slow cooked flavor}.  I guess you […] Read more…

Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

I feel like I am always a day late and a dollar short here at Practically Homemade.  These cookies would have been perfect to post last week so that you could make them for Heart Day but sometimes I just can’t get it all together!!  I had thought about not posting them at all but […] Read more…

Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Squares {Pop Tarts}

Pop Tarts are such an iconic breakfast food.  Delicious filling, sandwiched between pastry dough and covered in glaze…what could possibly be bad about that?  Nothing!  Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Pop Tarts are the way to go, in my opinion.  I like to eat them straight out the package…no toaster needed.  The best bite is always […] Read more…

Soft M&M Cookies {Guest Post}

I am so excited to be guest posting over at Flavour with Flair today.  Norma lives in Ontario, Canada and shares my love of…all things FOOD!!  We were put in touch on a food bloggers Facebook page and I was thrilled when I got the chance to share a recipe over on her blog.  To […] Read more…

Meal Planning Basics

I have been asked so many times about meal planning.  How do I do it?  When do I plan?  When do I shop?  Meal planning has became really important to me because I am a girl who likes to have a plan!  When I was a single mom of 2 and owned the deli, I […] Read more…

Italian Sausage & Ricotta Pizza Ring

To me, the most important meal of the day is…DINNER.  I don’t care for breakfast {unless it is something sweet…like a cookie}.  In fact most days I practice Intermittent Fasting until lunch and it doesn’t bother me in the least.  Dinner is when I am ready for a good meal.  That being said…it doesn’t always […] Read more…
