Roasted, Smashed & Loaded Potatoes

I love to make potato wedges as a side dish but I wanted something a bit different and fun and these certainly fit the bill.  I saw these one day while watching 5 Ingredient Fix on Food Network and immediately went to print out the recipe.  These were fabulous and make a great side dish […]

I’m taking Pecan Pie Bars & another dessert I’ll be sharing with you soon if it turns out.  Have you gotten everything ready for your thansksgiving dinner yet?

Chicken Croquettes

This is going to one of those recipes I make frequently! It is one of the best entrees I have made in a while and so easy too!  I took a couple of things from different recipes and made my own.  These were so creamy and comforting and had a great crunch on the outside […]

Strawberry on Top

We’re just under one week away from Thanksgiving and I am so excited!! I’m also pumped about some black friday shopping! I used to be very anti Black Friday shopping but a couple of years ago Adam said he’d like to go just once and see what it was like, so of course I jumped […]

Done Buttered Biscuits & Homemade Bisquick Mix

My mom has been making these biscuits for as long as I can remember.  They are so buttery and soft and go great with jelly spread over them.  They are super easy and would be great for holiday meals or just weeknight dinners.  I didn’t want to go out and buy bisquick so I googled […]

Sweet Potato Casserole

Philly Cheesesteak Burgers

I had a hankering for burgers this past weekend, but wanted to put a bit of a different spin on it, so I decided to remake a similar version that I had a local restaurant. This Philly Cheesesteak burger had such a nice sweet/savory flavor.  It was super easy as I just made our basic […]

Peanut Butter Snickers Mini Cheesecakes

I got some snickers on sale the day after Halloween and it was an act of Congress to keep Adam out of them long enough for me to bake with them! Since he loves cheesecake I decided I would put the beloved snickers in cheesecake!! Plus I realized I only have like 2 cheesecake recipes […]

Lasagna Soup

Soup is one of my favorite things to eat on a chilly  fall evening! Not only is it warm and comforting but most are pretty easy to throw together.  This soup is no different.  I had seen this on Pinterest (of course!) and immediately printed out the recipe.  It really does taste like lasagna but […]
