Veggie Casserole

December 7, 2012

This is such a great side dish for a Holiday meal. I’ve made this for the last two years and I just think it is a great change from the usual (although you can’t go wrong with the classics!). But be forewarned- there is nothing “light” about this dish. Yes, it is a vegetable casserole, […]

Streusel Topped Sweet Potato Casserole

November 19, 2012

Oh streusel, how I love you so… And topping off a luxuriously, dolled up sweet potato mash? You are always the first thing on my plate each Thanksgiving and Holiday. Well, it’s either you or my forever number one- Pineapple Casserole. Does it surprise anybody that my two favorite Holiday side dishes are basically desserts? […]

Easy Homemade Stuffing

November 15, 2012

This is a no-frills, no-fuss kind of stuffing recipe (or should I say “dressing” because it’s not really stuffed into the bird?). My Husband is the stuffing lover in our family. I could really take it or leave it, making more room on my plate for things like sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, and […]

Green Bean Casserole

November 12, 2012

I wish I could tell you that I grew up with lots of homemade dinners and Holiday meals, but unfortunately I can’t. My family was brought up wholly on pre-fabbed boxed meals, frozen dinners, fast food, canned goods, and processed treats. I didn’t know any better than, but now that I am older and cook for myself, I […]

Pineapple Casserole

November 6, 2012

Okay so the first thing that you should know about this dish is that it was very ineptly named. It’s not much of a casserole, especially in the savory sense. It is more of a dessert and more of a bread pudding at that. SO why then do I not just call it Pineapple Bread […]

Homemade Pizza Hut Cheesy Bread Sticks

October 22, 2012

When I was younger we used to order pizza delivered to the house all the time. Probably once every week or two, usually ordering from wherever we had a coupon from. Most of that time it ended up being Pizza Hut or Dominos. They’re really good about taping coupons to the pizza boxes. They know […]

Homemade Refried Beans

October 2, 2012

Although Italian is truly my favorite cuisine, I would never deny my great love for Mexican food. And I’m not just talking Taco Bell here. Real, down to earth, Mexican food. Like you would get from an authentic restaurant- a couple of tacos nestled between some rice and a nice helping of refried beans. That’s […]

Salt-and-Vinegar Potatoes

September 10, 2012

I have been having HUGE potato cravings lately. Possibly because I am pregnant…. nah, most definitely because I am pregnant. My Husband is usually the potato lover of the family, wanting mashed potatoes as a side with every meal. BORING. My potato craving goes beyond that of mashed potatoes, closer to the realm of roasted […]
