Cranberry Relish

Cranberry Relish

Topher’s Cranberry Relish Ever since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with cranberries. I would order cranberry juice instead of soda at restaurants, mix cranberry juice with other juices at home (cranberry orange is amazing), and the cranberry sauce was always my favorite part of our holiday meals. In high school, I began…


Grilled Turkey

Grilled Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving! How do you like your Turkey? Once when I was a teenager I remember my brother grilling our turkey, it was my favorite turkey! I have been in love with grilling turkey ever since! There are a LOT of opinions out there on how to cook a turkey, and honestly I just love…


Winter Squash and Kale Au Gratin

Squash and Kale Gratin

This is like the perfect fall gratin! So full of delicious fall flavors. I typically make it with butternut squash, but this past time (when I took that picture) I had half a kabocha squash in my fridge and I am so glad I used that! Every time I have kabocha squash I remind myself…


Crescent Rolls

Homemade Crescent Rolls

With Thanksgiving coming up nothing beats a good roll. I love bread and I can never decide what type of rolls I want to make! Sooo many good choices! So many carbs…. lol, shh…. It’s Thanksgiving! Crescent rolls are a very popular choice, I honestly just love the fun shape and the hidden playing with…


Apple Butter

Apple Butter

Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits

There is just something so good about a simple homemade buttermilk biscuit. This are quick and easy and can be whipped up in the morning even when I’m half asleep…. I think they make a perfect breakfast paired with some apple butter (homemade of course!) and a fresh cup of coffee or tea. They are…


Dutch Apple Pie

Dutch Apple Pie

Mmmmm, apple pie! An American classic, although it predates America. I was bored a few weeks back and was looking up the history on apple pie, I know random. I wasn’t terrible surprised, but it has been around for quite some time! The first written recipe appeared in 1381 and I’m sure apple pie recipes…


Roasted Brussels Sprout Stalk

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Stalk

Yum! I LOVE Brussels sprouts and they are so good for you too! Little powerhouses of nutrients! Both youngest loves them too, the other one not so much, however this recipe had both my kids asking for seconds before even touching the rest of their dinner! There is something that is just fun about roasting…


Cream of Veggie Soup

Cream of Veggie Soup

This is a great staple recipe to have on hand. I never remember much liking to just eat cream of anything soup, I only ever used it in casseroles. The consistency just seems to goopy and slimy and weird, ew! But apparently those are characteristics are partial to the canned stuff, homemade cream soups are…
