This Cranberry Almond Dressing is how my Mom does stuffing. Stuffing is my favorite side dish at a holiday meal. I love the savory flavors, and the moist yet firm texture. The ingredients that my mom includes in the dressing make it extra special and different than your run of the mill stove top stuffing. Semi Homemade This recipe uses boxed stuffing, so it is semi-homemade, but just as tasty as the real deal. The made from scratch stuffing recipe on this blog is AMAZING and . . .
This is a recipe I've been making for so long. Im pretty sure it happened because I had some leftover honey butter from making a pan of corn bread and then decided to toss some of the honey butter combo in with the carrots. I had had a butter and syrup combo before so I knew carrots would taste delicious with this sweet buttery combo. It has been a favorite in our house, a staple. More often than not my kids have to have their carrots this way than any other way. Tital Peeler I LOVE this . . .
One of my fav restaurants in Outback Steak House. I love the simplicity and the bold flavors. At a recent trip I ordered a side of broccoli and cheese with my steak and holy moly! It was sodanggood! Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables - but I know many have an aversion to it. Well I'm here to tell you that if you add this simple cheese sauce to your broccoli - you will be converted! Made In Minutes The base of this recipe is a ridiculously easy cheese sauce. You start by making . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
