We host Thanksgiving and Christmas, and everyone loves my stuffing. Trick is, it’s Stove Top! I doctor it up by adding my own sauteed onions & celery, plus a finely chopped apple or two and some golden raisins. Easy peasy and WAY better than the couple times I tried from scratch.

Crock pot mac and cheese! I usually only make it around Christmas or for my husband’s birthday because it’s soooo rich and fattening.

The best part is that you don’t need to cook the noodles first! Here’s the ingredients list that I work off of, but modify to my taste (like that’s wayyy too much butter). Throw everything in together, give it a good stir and set it on high for about 2 hours!

  • 2 cups Pasta
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 1/2 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
  • 4 T butter
  • 1 10 3/4 oz can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • 1/2 t dry mustard
  • optional 1/4 t Cayenne pepper

Pumpkin risotto. I love risotto and I make a “holiday” risotto with canned pumpkin. I add fresh sage and nutmeg to up the holiday flavors. We even made it into arancini one year (breaded and fried risotto balls) and it was amazing.

Pineapple Casserole! It is a must have!


2 cans (20 oz) Chunk Pineapple (save around 6 tbs of the juice)

5 tbsp plain flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

1 stick light butter- melted

1 roll ritz crackers- crushed

Pour pineapple in a rectangle baking dish. Mix flour and sugar in a separate bowl, then add them to the baking dish, next add the grated cheese. Top with cracker crumbs mixed in the butter. then drizzle the pineapple juice over the top.

Bake in preheated oven of 375 degreese farenheit for 40 minutes, or until cheesy is bubbly and casserole is golden brown.

It’s super easy and sooo good!

Every year for Thanksgiving I make my 7 layer magic bars… ithey are a HUGE hit and people look forward to them each year (I only make them for T-day).

I got the recipe from an old copy of BH&G.  so simple and super delicious.

1 stick butter

1 1/2 cups graham crackers crumbs

1 14oz can of condensed milk

1 bag (2 cups) semi sweet chocolate chips (the recipe actually calls for 1 cup each semi sweet and butterscotch but I have never been able to find butterscotch chips and it still tastes amazing but without the butterscotch chips I guess it’s really 6 layers).

1 1/3 cups flaked coconut

1 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans but walnuts work well too)

preheat oven to 350 (325 for glass dish), melt butter in 13×9 baking pan (here is a tip…line the pan first: sides and bottom with foil to make it easier to cut up and remove the bars)

sprinkle crumbs over butter evenly, pour condensed milk over crumbs evenly.  Top with remaining ingredients in order listed.  Press  down firmly with clean hands.

bake 25 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool. Cut into bars.

Commenting to follow. 

Also, I found this recipe online a couple of weeks ago and have made 4 loaves thus far. It is a HUGE hit. I am making two more loaves for “Friendsgiving” on Tuesday and my mom asked me to make this for Thanksgiving at my parent’s house this year. This bread is amazinggggg and has been added to my fall/pumpkin line for years to come.

This isn’t my best recipe per se, but I’m going to do it this year because I saw it on Pinterest and it is soooo easy and cute: 3-ingredient Frozen Peppermint Pie. 

One oreo pie crust, then take a box of peppermint/candy cane ice cream, and one tub Cool Whip. Soften ice cream and whip together. Fill up the pie pan. Top with crushed candy canes. 

Can’t wait!
