Spicy Tamale-Cornbread Dressing




My mother's cornbread dressing is the highlight of all holiday meals for me. It has always been my  favorite holiday dish she makes... besides her giblet gravy which, of course, gets slathered all over my plate every year!

I'm going to publish a general disclaimer here (before she reads this post and flips out) even without considering my special add-ins, this recipe is not my mom's cornbread dressing recipe exactly. She "eyeballs" most things and she uses a lot more dried sage (Southern tradition to use lots of sage in the dressing!) and she uses a combination of turkey drippings from the roasting pan and canned broth to moisten the dressing.

Pumpkin Pancakes




Those of you that have followed me for a while now know that breakfast on the weekends at our place is kind of a big deal. My kids and I like to work (more like play!) to together and make something extra special to eat on our lazy weekend mornings. Some of our favorite, go-to family recipes are homemade cinnamon rolls, biscuits, waffles and pancakes! Yes, it's basically a total carb fest here on Saturday and Sunday and we love it!

Spicy Sheet Pan Chicken & Chickpeas



I cannot say enough about this easy sheet pan dinner. 

No, really, I just love it.

Fall Decorated Cookies: Simple Sunflowers, Apples and Pumpkins



Hi there. 

I have been so busy at home and at work, I've simply not had any time to take pictures for a new recipe post. I have three posts written and ready to roll...but all are still missing pictures! Sigh. But, I think this is the perfect opportunity for me to update my sorely neglected decorated cookie index with a recent cookie picture post! See how that works out for the best?! Perspective is so important during hectic times, y'all. 

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Raisin Bread Pudding #SundaySupper




There are many recipes for bread pudding out there that (as with every dish ever made) range from really simple and to really elaborate. However, bread pudding is one of those classic dishes that is just seriously good stuff even in it's most simple form.  It's certainly a popular and versatile dish and in my little opinion, a good custard-y bread pudding is the quintessential comfort food dessert.

Spiced Brown Sugar Apple Dip




Apples have been absolutely abundant in our house lately. The truth of the matter is that we accidentally doubled up on them when we made two separate grocery shopping trips last week. Yep, I grabbed a bag full of beautiful, organic Gala apples while I was at the store last Monday morning. (OMG they were so pretty!) Later the same day, Evan picked up a bag full of gorgeous, perfectly green Granny Smith apples as he made a quick stop by the market on his way home from work!
