My Mother-in-law Mary makes the BEST rolls. I mean THE BEST. These are NOT, I repeat NOT your standard run of the mill, buy in the deli section crescent rolls in a can. I have been to numerous dinners where she served these rolls and if you were to ask ANYONE what their favorite part of the meal was. They would tell you, without hesitation, the rolls! Mary was kind enough to share the recipe with me and I have made them for special dinners and at Thanksgiving when we visited my . . .
My Husband's brother makes these as a tradition every holiday season. I'll admit - at first I was really skeptical...especially of the name. "Spinach balls? Sounds Terrible!" Then I ate one as a courtesy. To my surprise they were delicious! I ate probably a half dozen and still wanted more! These have become one of my favorite appetizers to make...not only because they are tasty, but because they are EASY! My family likes to serve Thanksgiving dinner in the evening, but we prepare . . .
I have memories of my mom and our next door neighbor, Marla, standing in our kitchen making dozens and dozens of pies. This always happened a few days before Thanksgiving. The kitchen was a mess, the house smelled amazing, and the tone was always joyful. As I grew older I remember them sending me on errands to get missing ingredients. One of my mom's favorite pies was Marla's famous razzleberry pie. Instant Clear Gel This recipe is inspired by Marla's recipe - with just one tweak. Her . . .
That time of year is right around the corner - crunchy leaves, sweaters, spiced cider, cinnamon candles, costume shopping, feast planning, pumpkin patch visiting...fall! My very favorite season! And with fall comes pumpkin everything! I adore pumpkin cookies, bread, steamers, pie...I could go on forever. Whenever I say the word pumpkin I feel like I should say it 'punkin.' When I was dating my husband we had this strange experience where we say a black jetta on several occasions with . . .
During our first "oh so meeting" in the beginning days of the blog - a friend who used to blog with us, Anna, brought over her beef bourguignon to photograph and later share on the blog. I remember loving that recipe when we all took a bite. When Holland House® asked if we wanted to try some of their cooking wines, I knew this recipe would be the perfect fit. I've made a few tweaks to Anna's original recipe, but this hearty beef stew is a classic. Family Tradition She told a story of when . . .
I love dip. I feel like everything is better with a little dip...veggies, chips, fruit, french fries...pretty much everything! So naturally - with pumpkin season upon us, I had to throw a pumpkin pie dip into the mix.

October and Halloween always make me crave chili. My Grandma always makes this at Halloween time and now we make it every year on Halloween. Grandma's Secret To Delicious Chili My Grandma's chili is always the best...so many years ago I called her up and asked her for the recipe. She was very matter of fact in her response - "always double your meat, and always use tomato juice instead of tomato sauce, the sauce is too sweet." I've stuck to those rules and came up with this EASY tasty . . .
Today I want to chat about WATER! The source of life. I am actually a water lover. I enjoy a nice big glass of ice water almost as much as a nice big glass of Diet Coke. But let's face it - sometimes it gets boring. Flavored sparkling water is a big trend right now, but I'm here to tell you that making your own still, infused water is just as good, if not better than those expensive canned waters. Reduce Single-Use Plastic Bottle Waste Today we've teamed up with Dopper to bring water . . .
