One of my daughter Gracie’s favorite foods is stuffing. She doesn’t care what time of year it is. I’m pretty sure she could eat it every day.

{slow cooker} honey cranberry pork roast

Who else out there loves using their slow cooker during the summer? There are so many great summer dishes you can make. They’re so fast to prepare! This one calls for minimal ingredients, and it’s versatile. You can use the sweet, shredded pork as a sandwich topping (as you would pulled pork.) Just toast a…

cheesy potato puff casserole

This is one of my go-to potato recipes for Easter and other holidays. It’s fluffy, and cheesy, and perfect with ham, turkey, roasted chicken, or grilled steak. There are never any leftovers! I always use 8 oz. of cheese for this, but if you use 6, the casserole will get a bit puffier. ~ preheat…

magic custard-filled cornbread

I made up a big slow cooker full of Texas Red Chili yesterday, and I made this amazing custard-filled corn bread to go with it. Can I tell you how freaking awesome this combination was? Maybe you should try it for yourself instead of taking my word for it. I know this looks good, but…

minnesota sage & giblet stuffing

Hello, Lovelies! Are you excited to start celebrating the holidays this year? We still have to go out and get our tree! We’re a week late, so I’m sure we’ll be getting one tomorrow. I still have lots of decorating and baking to do too. How about you? Are you one of those totally organized…

thanksgiving leftovers soup

When you think of comfort food, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Casseroles? Meatloaf? Mashed Potatoes? Macaroni & Cheese? Pancakes? Those are all good choices, and some of my favorites too, but when I think comfort food, I think soups and stews. There’s just nothing quite like a big, hot bowl of soup…

thanksgiving leftovers sliders

I’ve had these every day for breakfast since Thanksgiving. They’re soooo good! Today I’m making soup with what’s left of the turkey. What’s your favorite way to use your Thanksgiving leftovers? for 3 sliders: 3 small dinner rolls, split, warmed and buttered 1/4 cup mashed sweet potatoes or russet potatoes, warmed 1/4 cup stuffing/dressing, warmed…
