Weekend Baked Macaroni and Cheese


We are macaroni and cheese lovers to the highest degree. My kids could any version of it as a side dish with everything or all on it's own as a main dish, every single day.

Lightened-Up Waldorf Salad


Happy New Year!  

For the coming year, I've already prepared a long list of healthy, modern-style recipes I'm anxious to try like lentil salads, a few recipes with pomegranate seeds (a new love) and some easy sheet pan dinners. 

I also plan to post a healthy sprinkle of some really naughty desserts too...my sugar addiction is still very real and I'll definitely be sharing it with you!

U.S. Senate Bean Soup


Can you believe Christmas is over?! I can't, but I never can. There's always so much anticipation surrounding Christmas for our family, you know with the presents, planning the big meal and family reunions, that I'm always a little sad when the excitement over the big day is done. I leave my Christmas tree up through New Year's Day every, single year...I just can't let it go before then. 


For Christmas dinner this year we kept the menu very simple, but we enjoyed some our most-loved dishes. We prepared a honey-glazed ham, our favorite recipe for creamy, cheesy scalloped potatoes, and a pot of country-style green beans with bacon. The meal was served with some buttery, soft, fresh-baked dinner rolls and we made a spiced apple pie and some homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
