grandma’s shortcut pecan pie bars

These bars are super simple to make, so delicious, and they taste exactly like pecan pie! I love how easy they are to transport to potlucks, family gatherings, and picnics. You’re going to love the “shortcut” way of making pecan pie bars! So good! ~ preheat oven to 350 degrees F. ~ 16 oz. box…

ham & cheese stacker

Just like my pork roast stacker, turkey stacker, and diner meatloaf stacker, this isn’t really a recipe. It’s more of a method for enjoying holiday leftovers. This one is particularly good with a little side of your favorite cranberry sauce. If you want, just top your ham with the cranberry sauce before you add the…

cookie crunch sweet potato casserole

As much as we love the classic sweet potato casserole with toasted marshmallows on top, once in awhile we like to change it up a bit. This year I decided to add the wonderful crunch of buttery oatmeal cookies to our sweet potatoes, and OH MY! They were amazing. So good with turkey and ham!…

bourbon peach bbq meatballs

Are you ready for an all new, totally amazing appetizer that’s sweet, smoky, spicy, and ridiculously easy to prepare? These little cocktail meatballs are a bit like the grape jelly cocktail meatballs that your grandma makes (well, I make them too, to be completely honest.) But these are pumped up about 100 notches. I add…

pumpkin pie cheesecake jars

Cheesecake jars are such a fun, easy way to serve dessert. Everyone enjoyed my Blueberry Cheesecake Jars so much, I decided it was time to make a pumpkin pie version. We love these pumpkin pie cheesecake jars for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! They’re delicious and portable, so if you have to travel for the holidays,…

KFC Biscuits {copycat}

grandma’s extra cheesy au gratin potatoes

Who doesn’t love some extra cheesy, ooey gooey, au gratin potatoes from time to time? They’re delicious with almost everything, and an absolute must when you’re serving ham! I made these again this Easter. This recipe is tried and true, easy, and perfect! The BEST au gratin potatoes EVER! ~ preheat oven to 350 degrees…

pork roast stacker

We love making leftovers into stackers! A stacker is pretty much just a hot, open faced sandwich topped with mashed potatoes. Sometimes we add a drizzle of gravy, sometimes a sprinkle of cheese, and other times just a pat of butter with salt and pepper. Some of the other stackers my readers have enjoyed are:…

eggnog milk shake

A yummy, creamy, dreamy eggnog shake! You can make this with or without a shot of rum, depending on who you’re mixing it for. We love these because they make an awesome cocktail for the adults and a fun, sweet dessert for the kiddos! for one eggnog shake: 3 large scoops vanilla ice cream 1…
