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 . . .
We're celebrating pies this week, however, you cannot please everyone and many people do not like PIES! (incredible right? who doesn't like pie?) so for all you pie haters out there here is a incredible recipe EVERYONE would love. Even those who love to eat healthy because this recipe is also low-fat, high protein and has vegetable in it! Protein Pumpkin Pie Shake. How do we make it high protein, low fat? With this magical ingredient. Proyo is our new favorite ice cream! We eat it for . . .
Apple pie is one of those pies that even pie haters love. It's always good to have a nice, classic (but amazing) apple pie recipe in your recipe box. This is one I have been making for years. It's my kids favorite kind of pie. WELL scratch that, they really like chocolate pie. I'd say apple and chocolate pie tie in the running for very favorite pie. The ingredients are for one pie, and same with the instructions in the recipe card. But if you have mini pie plates, or mini pie liners feel . . .
EVERY Thankgiving my husband asks for pecan pie. He comes from southern roots and loves ( LOVES) a good Peeee-can Pie. Or is it Pe-con Pie? Well either way, he loves it. I've tried making them all, the chocolate pecan pie, the "light karo-syrup" versions, the "dark karo-syrup" versions, the grocery store versions (wink wink) in the end he has decided that he loves the ol' fashion (nothing crazy added in) Pecan Pie's. The Pie Crust I like to make my own pie crusts. Why? Because they are . . .
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is famous for it's creamy, tart and sweet filling. Pair it with Grandma's flakey crust and you have a winner. This is the perfect for any occasion- especially on Thanksgiving when you have a pumpkin pie hater in the crowd. This recipe is my sister-in-law family's recipe. It's been handed down, tried and tested. It's hands down the best! Since sometimes I struggle with finding rhubarb so I've altered this recipe so it can be enjoyed all year round and call it our tart . . .
I LOVE my Grandma's pies. I especially go gaga over her Cherry Pie. However, I've never really had to make it- because she has always made it. One year I was not going to be spending thanksgiving with her so I received a lesson before hand on how Grandma makes her pies, and her recipes. She is famous for her homemade pie crust! Like seriously famous. This homemade pie crust surprisingly easy and creates a light, flakey, buttery pie crust that pairs perfect with all pies! I always expect . . .
Homemade creamed corn is the perfect Thanksgiving side. It's creamy comfort food at its best, and it is a side dish even the pickiest eaters will eat! I know because I've tested it out and found it to be true. I love this recipe, creamy corn with a crispy cheesy crust! what is not to love? Do you remember when you used to buy school lunch and they served us creamed corn!!!??? I ALWAYS gagged. I hated it. I was not a picky eater as a child, I even loved school lunches...however I did . . .
Cranberry sauce.. does anyone really like it? Or do we just put it on the table because of tradition? Maybe it is tradition, maybe there are cranberry die-hards out there still spreading it on turkey and rolls. I prefer to spread it over a homemade buttery roll. Either way. Cranberry Sauce is ridiculously easy so I have a delicious recipe for all you cran-lovers. Not to mention it is a tradition!! Gotta carry on the tradition. How to Make Cranberry Sauce My mom will NEVER buy . . .
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 . . .
