15 Thanksgiving Dessert Recipes

Last week I made a confession…I basically care more about the side dishes at Thanksgiving than I do the actual turkey.  I know, it’s a bold statement, but get ready for this: there’s something I love even more than the sides. Yep, you guessed right. I’m talking about the...

Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry and Quinoa Salad

Do you ever wonder what food trends will look like a generation from now? Every now and then when I’m walking through the grocery store, my mind starts to wonder — what produce will be the hot new trend in 20 years?  What methods of cooking will be most popular?...

Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce

My friends have gotten used to the fact that they are always my guinea pigs for trying out new recipes. It is the rare — very rare — occasion that I bring a dish to a gathering that I have actually tried before.  Instead, they have come to expect that...

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Sometimes I wonder if I love my slow cooker a little too much. Well, actually I have three of them, since I seem to have developed a love of slow cooker entertaining with all three going at once.  And I love all of them equally very very much, just...

15 Thanksgiving Side Dishes

15 Thanksgiving Side Dishes

For some, a Thanksgiving meal is all about the bird, the star of the show, and everything else is just second fiddle. While I can appreciate a well-brined, perfectly roasted, succulent turkey, for me, it’s really about the supporting cast of sides. What would Thanksgiving dinner be without cranberry...

Healthier Green Bean Casserole

Hey hey!  Guess who’s finally getting on board with the Thanksgiving recipe train? This food blogger, that’s who. I’ve been a little slow getting to all of the classic holiday recipes this year, partly because there are already lots of Thanksgiving recipes on the site, and partly because —...

Slow Cooker Apple Cider

Sometimes I wonder if I get a little too excited about recipes I love on the blog. Reason tells me that I should tamp down my enthusiasm, that I can become the “girl who cried delicious” if I sing the praises of too many recipes, and that people will start...

Turkey Enchiladas

Do you celebrate Friendsgiving? I feel like over the last decade or so, this holiday has become almost as monumental in the month of November as the big T-Day itself.  My friends love going all-out for a good ol’-fashioned Friendsgiving.  And actually, this year I actually have three Friendsgiving gatherings on the...

Butternut Squash Alfredo Baked Shells

What is the best way to reach you? If someone wants to get ahold of me, I always recommend that they send a text (or iMessage).  Or next best would be an email.  Maybe call.  Possibly tweet.  Probably don’t leave a Facebook message.  And I rarely check my snail mailbox.  But if you...

German Potato Salad

Guten tag, meine freune!   Ok, I had to look up the “my friends” part of that on Google translate.  Clearly my German is not quite on par with my Spanish.  But hey, on the day that this post goes live, I will have already spent a week in...

Easy Cheesy Breakfast Casserole

My mom and I were talking the other day about how different life would be if we lived a little closer to one another. Right now, we live about 3 hours apart — close enough to definitely be able to drive and visit fairly often, but just far enough away...

Kale Salad with Warm Cranberry Vinaigrette

In honor of my month of healthy eating on the blog, I of course felt obligated to throw a token bunch of kale into my cart at the grocery store.  No arm twisting necessary — kale is one of my favorite greens, and still seems to be oh-so-trendy at...
