salted nut rolls {in a cake pan}

Have you been busy doing your Christmas baking? I sure have. It’s been something rich and sweet almost every day. I’ve been giving treats away left and right so we’re not overtaken with sugar. Everything is sure yummy though! The few bites I’ve taken have been very good 🙂 I may treat myself to one…

chicken marsala sandwich

My hubby made up a big batch of his famous Chicken Marsala a couple nights ago, and I decided to use up the leftovers for our lunch today and create a sandwich! Oh MY! Did it ever turn out great! If you don’t happen to have leftover Chicken Marsala in your fridge, have no fear.…

turkey soup with dumplings

I have a few “go to” comfort food meals up my sleeve, but I have to say soups and stews that include big dumplings are at the top of my list. I always make up a big pot of turkey veggie soup using the leftover turkey bones/carcass from our Thanksgiving bird. It makes the BEST…

This is one of those fun dinners to make for company. Everyone sits around the table and passes the different toppings!

3 ingredient vanilla buttercream sprinkle fudge

One of my favorite things on the planet is buttercream frosting. I want to marry it. I’m always the person who asks for the corner piece of bakery cake (the one with the extra frosting.) If you like frosting, you’ll adore this fudge. It’s so delicious. Cute too! This is so easy to make you…

two ingredient strawberry fudge

Another easy, two ingredient recipe for frosting fudge! One of my readers wrote to me asking if I had a recipe for strawberry fudge, so I decided to make up a batch using strawberry frosting and white chocolate chips. It’s heavenly! Strawberry lovers, rejoice! This would make a lovely Christmas gift for the strawberry lovers…

{slow cooker} chicken fajita tacos

Are you ready for another taco recipe? I had some stellar chicken fajita tacos served from a taco truck at a street fair this past summer. I was a little disappointed that I had never thought to add fajita veggies to a taco before. Duh! But I am happy that I got to try them…
